West Memphis was scheduled to meet Jacksonville in the Class 5A state final last weekend, but concerns over the COVID-19 outbreak resulted in the suspension of all state tournament championship games.
That meant no matchup between Chris Moore of West Memphis against Davonte Davis of Jacksonville. Both are worthy candidates in their own right, but with only the evidence presented to decide the case, Moore gets the nod as the 2019-20 Suddenlink Arkansas Player of the Year
Moore, who is headed to Auburn, led West Memphis to a 26-4 record and the No. 1 spot in the MaxPreps computer rankings. He averaged nearly 19 points and 16 rebounds per game during the state tournament.ARKANSAS ALL-STATE TEAM PRESENTED BY SUDDENLINK
