Malone chosen for all-state basketball team
After helping lead his team to as 31-2 record and a trip to the Class 2A state championship game, Marked Tree's Colby Malone was selected to the all-state basketball team. Malone averaged 10.6 points per game along with 2.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.1 steals per game. Malone shot 73 percent from the free throw line and 42 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range. Malone also made all-conference along with the all-NEA tournament team. “Colby is a quite player and he doesn't talk a whole lot. He uses his length and speed to bait the offensive player in to doing something they probably should not do. He has range on that three-ball,” Marked Tree head coach Barbara Wilburn said.
