HACIENDA HEIGHTS – The final season of Troy Draves’ basketball career at Wilson High School has been bittersweet, to say the least. Draves leads the CIF-Southern Section in scoring, averaging 31.2 points, but his team is 4-22 this season. When the final buzzer sounds tonight against Charter Oak, Draves’ season, as phenomenal as it’s been, will be over. But just about the time anyone around Wilson gets excited about Draves’ performance, they’re reminded of things like the team not winning a game since December. “That’s what’s been tough,” Wilson coach Willie Allen said. “If he could cut off 20 of the points and get the win, he would. You don’t want to make excuses for the team, but we’ve been missing our second-best player for the whole year. “I’m not saying we were going to be great, but if you don’t have your total team, it hurts you.” Draves has scored 30 or more points 15 times this season. Some of his best performances have come against top-notch competition like Pasadena, which is ranked No. 1 in Division II-A, when Draves scored 53 points in a 21-point loss. “Everyone is saying, `He’s scoring all these points, but what type of league is he in?’ ” Draves said. “I’m just trying to show everybody that when I step on the court, it doesn’t matter who you are, I can play with you.” Locally, nobody is questioning Draves’ ability. It’s no secret that stopping the senior guard is the top priority of opposing teams. “He was very legit against us the other day. He had 45 points,” Los Altos coach Jeff Lucas said. “When he gets hot, he’s real difficult to stop. He’s scoring all those points with all the teams keying on him.” Being the focus of the opposing defense has taken its toll on Draves, who is 6-foot and 150 pounds. “They hold me, grab me and do whatever,” Draves said. “It’s painful every time I drive to the basket. They make sure to hit me extra hard so I won’t want to do it again.” Wilson entered the season with tempered expectations after losing several key contributors from last year’s team. “I’m not going to lie, I had a good season,” Draves said. “It’s nice to be able to say I scored all those points, but everyone is going to look and say they didn’t make CIF. “It’s hard. After some games, I was crying. I just had to learn to accept the fact that you have what you have. I can only do so much … I’m only one player.” [email protected] (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2233 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It just happens this way sometimes.” Draves’ season statistics read like a CEO’s tax return, with numbers galore. He leads Wilson in 3-pointers with 76. He also leads the team in rebounds with 96 and has 48 steals on defense.
