G Chris Lykes

Gonzaga / Sr.

Miami commit helped Gonzaga collect all kinds of hardware this season. The Eagles won the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship, the DC State Athletic Association Championship and capped their year with an Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament title. That started with Lykes, their fearless 5-foot-8 point guard, who averaged a team-high 18.6 points and quarterbacked Gonzaga’s loaded offense. He scored in double-figures in all but one of 37 games and averaged 4.2 assists. Lykes also helped Gonzaga win the WCAC title when he was a sophomore.
