Season highlights: The Bison had a collection of players that made it fun for coach Keenon Clement to come to the gym every day and it was a group that did a lot of winning, as Vista PEAK secured 18 wins (including one over eventual Class 4A state champion Holy Family to open the season) and made it to the Class 5A Sweet 16. Versatility was key on the roster and Monroe-Elazier exemplified it with his ability to play multiple roles and contribute in many ways. The 4A/5A All-City League first team selection didn’t need to score as much as he had the previous season, but he led a very balanced offense with an average of nearly 10 points per game. Monroe-Elazier had 12 games in which he scored in double figures with a high of 18 in a win over Denver West Jan. 28. He tied for second on the team in assist average as well. Monroe-Elazier earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the second time, but did not get to play last year when the game was canceled.
Monroe-Elazier vs. Aurora teams: vs. Rangeview (10 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists)
