A handful of Page basketball players from both the boys and girls squads made the 3A All-Conference roll call for the 2019-20 season.

Sand Devils junior Stuart Sandall was named the 3A Conference Offensive Player of the Year after helping Page go 18-0 in the regular season. Sandall averaged team highs of 14.6 points per game, 9.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks for the Sand Devils, who went 29-2 overall when counting games played outside the power-points slate.

The Page boys finished their season as the No. 1 seed in the semifinals of the 3A state tournament, falling to the No. 5-seeded Sabino Sabercats, 53-50.

Meanwhile, Sand Devils junior Robert Smith was named to the second team and senior Gabe Gomez was an honorable mention.

On the girls side, Page's Miquedah Taliman landed on the 3A All-Conference First Team after helping the Sand Devils finish the year as runner-ups in the state championship tourney. The sophomore finished the year averaging team highs of 2.9 and 2.4 assists and rebounds per game, respectively.

Taliman took a team-high 82 3-point attempts and hit 27 for Page, which saw Torrance Begay land a spot on the second team. Page went 15-3 in the regular season on the way to finishing No. 1 in the North Region. The Sand Devils fell in the title round of the 3A state tourney as the No. 2 seed to top-seeded Sabino, 42-35.

It was the Page girls fourth straight year reaching the finals of the state championship tourney and the attempt for a three-peat fell short.

Camryn Nockideneh, Neve Redhair and Emma Yazzie all received honorable mentions for Page, which went 25-6 overall when counting games play outside of the power-points slate.
