Ben Baker

Heading into the 2019-20 season, Ben Baker arrived in Saratoga with high expectations as one of new coach Danny Yoshikawa's top recruits. Baker, through the first five games of his Viking career, has lived up to those expectations...and then some. The first-year player from Berkeley has topped the Vikings in scoring in every game and leads the team in scoring (21.6 PPG), rebounding (6.8 RPG), steals (1.6 SPG), and is second in assists (1.8 APG). Baker's 21.6 scoring clip is second in the Coast-South and 12th in the state. Highlights include a 25-point, seven-rebound night against Solano on 11/2, a 26-point, 10-rebound, three-assist outing against Reedley on 11/9, and a 27-point, three-assist, three-steal effort versus Victor Valley on 11/15.
