Mountain House junior Nikko Rodriguez goes up for an uncontested layup in the Mustangs' Jan. 31 home game.

Mountain House High junior Nikko Rodriguez was the top selection among Western Athletic Conference boys basketball coaches in their season-end all-league selections. Rodriguez was named the WAC’s MVP for the 2019-20 season after he and his team won their second-consecutive league title.

Rodriguez was the Mustangs’ scoring leader with 16.2 points per game, which was the highest scoring average in the WAC. He scored 307 points over 19 games for the highest point total in the league, just ahead of his senior teammate Tavio Meeks (304), who played in 26 games.

For the second year in a row, Mountain House coach Nolan Dixon was named Coach of the Year by his fellow WAC coaches. The Mustangs went 13-1 against league opponents this year after going undefeated in the league last year.
