The Cougars’ efficient fourth-year guard is going out with a nice memory for his pandemic-shortened senior season.

Last Thursday, May 13, he went off for a 47 points on Senior Night, doing so despite a running clock in the fourth quarter as Weston Ranch drubbed Sierra, 93-36. Lindsey found his touch from long range in the third when he hit five of his six total 3-pointers. 

His point total is a single-game program record, an impressive feat considering the prolific scorers the Ranch has had in its short history. Lindsey was also presented a custom-designed basketball signifying his entry in the program’s career 1,000-point club, joining Jaelen Ragsdale, Dylan Alexander, James Nunnally and Gavin Wilburn. 

The following night, Lindsey again led the team with 25 points in a 101-41 win at Sierra. His explosive week earned him Cal-Hi Sports Northern California Boys Basketball Player of the Week honors. 

Lindsey remains one of the top unsigned seniors in Northern California. Last year, he averaged a team-high 17 points per game as the Cougars captured the NorCal Division II regional title. He also starred on the 2018-19 squad that went 31-2, claimed the Valley Oak League and Sac-Joaquin Section Division III championships and earned an invitation to the California Interscholastic Federation Open Division state playoffs.
