Season highlights: Regis Jesuit won 20 games for the first time since the 2015-16 season and made it to the Final Four for the first time since 2011 (when it won the third of three consecutive large school state championships) and the contributions of Dorais were a big part of both of those accomplishments for coach Ken Shaw’s team. The multi-sport athlete (a Class 5A state qualifier in doubles in the fall) was absolutely lethal from the perimeter and he knocked down a whopping 88 3-point shots on the season, which was the second-most in the 6A classification and 29 more than the next-most among Aurora players (59 by Smoky Hill’s Rickey Mitchell). Dorais made eight triples in a win over Monarch Dec. 21, which helped produce his season-high of 32 points, while he had 20 or more eight times and reached double figures 21 times (including 19 in a close 6A semifinal loss to Fossil Ridge). He was also third on his team in rebounding average and had double-digit rebounds in a game twice (both of which gave him double-doubles). Dorais earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
Dorais vs. Aurora teams: vs. Grandview (24 points, 2 steals); vs. Rangeview (16 points, 3 rebounds); vs. Overland (15 points, 8 rebounds); vs. Cherokee Trail (23 points, 10 rebounds)
