MOSPORTS.COM SUPER 50
The MOsports.com staff with the help of top basketball talent evaluators from around the Show Me State have put together a list of the Top 50 players in Missouri. This was a difficult process to find the top players in the state, regardless of class. Players were evaluated on current level of skill, and potential at the next level.
Ryan McArthy has grown up playing the game of basketball. Playing for his father Kevin since an early age in AAU basketball as well as tagging along older brother Cory, the younger McArthy has picked up many of the tricks that help guards succeed and more importantly help their teams win.
Over the past two seasons McArthy, a 5-foot-10 inch, 160-pound point guard has helped the Patriots to back-to-back 20 wins seasons, earning Suburban West all-conference honors each season for his efforts. As a senior, McArthy joins the MOsports Super 50 with the No. 43 selection.
"Ryan is a hard worker who never complains and his only goal is for his team to succeed." commented South head coach Mitch Stevens. "He does not need to be the guy that scores the most points or get accolades. He will do whatever it takes to get the win, whether its getting a loose ball, taking a charge, or hitting some big free throws down the stretch. "
Stats are just a small part of the game for McArthy who does so many other things to help his team win. This season he averaged 7.6 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds, and nearly 2 steals a game, while connecting on 32% of his three point attempts and 78% from the free throw line.
As for his basketball future, McArthy will follow the path of those in his life who have influenced his game. As his father and brother before him, McArthy will play at Christian Brothers College, a NCAA Division II program in Memphis, Tennessee.
