The Tri Counties Bank boys basketball Player of the Week is the same guy who led Foothill to its first Harlan Carter Invitational title since 1993, earning MVP honors while averaging nearly 19 points per game for the three-night tournament.

Josiah Hutt, the No. 4 returning player in Shasta County Sports countdown, played like the chants of Foothill’s “Jungle” over the weekend – “MVP!” “MVP!”

On Thursday, Hutt dropped 21 against Washington state’s Washougal in the tourney opener and followed that with a prime-time performance of 22 points and nine boards against Enterprise. And while Shasta “held” him to 14 in the championship game win, Hutt’s 3-pointer with time waning in the fourth quarter showed what clutch was all about.

In the Cougars’ season opener, Hutt scored 17 against U-Prep.

Hutt also earns a free drink coupon from Black Rose Coffee & Tea, a sponsor for the Player of the Week for the Boys & Girls Basketball season.
