The incoming senior averaged 22.3 points per game for the Jaguars last year.
Masten’s 580 points were the third-most in Class 5A.
Perhaps the biggest moment of Masten’s career so far was the steal he had in Rock Canyon’s thrilling win over Grandview to send the Jags to their first Final 4 in program history.
In a matter of five seconds, Rock Canyon scored four points to stun Grandview in a 42-40 win.
