Four Truckee High boys basketball players earned Northern 3A All-League recognition.

Senior Cody Wicks was voted by Northern 3A coaches to the second team as a utility player, while seniors Pat Galvin and Nick Tennant and junior Ryan Roberts made honorable mention.

Wicks also got All-State honorable mention.

A 6-foot-3 guard, Wicks never saw a shot he didn’t like. A skilled ball-handler, he boasted the ability to hit the outside shot or drive past opponents to the basket, which he often did. He also fired up home crowds with the occasional breakaway dunk.

“Cody had a pretty good season,” said Truckee coach Steve Ames. “The coaches picked him over everyone else.”

Galvin, a versatile post player at 6-foot-3, had the sweetest 3-point stroke on the team and could battle for boards with the best of them.

A solid defensive player fit to guard the league’s top scorers, he led by example on the court and represented his team with class.

While he played unselfishly on the offensive end, Galvin would often heat up and call for the ball, draining multiple outside shots in succession. If the shot wasn’t there, he’d find an open teammate instead.

“Pat was the most consistent player on our team,” Ames said, adding that he led the Wolverines in rebounds, 3-point shots made and shooting percentage. “He had a great senior year. He’s a smart basketball player.

“I would have liked to have seen him get more accolades.”

Tennant, a rangy 6-foot-4 post player, lived up to his role as team captain, always hustling and giving 100 percent on both ends of the floor. He also held his own in the paint, boxing out and grabbing rebounds and, using his aggressive style of play, never allowing another big an uncontested shot inside.

“Nick was a great team leader,” Ames said. “When he came in with his energy, he really lifted the team up. I think the whole team fed off him.”

Roberts, who played varsity last year as a sophomore, could take over a game at any time with sheer athleticism. With an impressive vertical leap, he could get off a shot over any defender. He also was adept at breaking presses with his quickness and skills.

“I feel that Ryan was one of the best juniors in the whole league. There’s only positive things to say about Robert,” Ames said. “I’m looking for big things from him next year.”
