The Trumbull County Player of the Year averaged over 17 points and 10 rebounds per game this season and piled up the post-season accolades. The Indians senior was First All-District, Conference Player of the Year and finished his high school career second on the school’s all-time scoring list.

What a season for the Cowboys senior! Hewlett averaged over 18 points, 8 rebounds, 3 steals and one block per contest this season, while leading Chaney to 19 wins and four consecutive District titles.

The Rockets were undefeated in conference play this season, thanks, in part, to Lucente. The Lowellville senior led the team with 17 points and 7 rebounds per game, was named Co-Player of the Year in the MVAC, and helped lead Lowellville to back-to-back 20-win seasons.

One of the top-recruited players in the state and just a junior, Moy averaged a staggering 25 points and 10 rebounds per game this season. He also shattered the single-season school record for points in a season while leading the Braves to 20 wins and a trip to the Division Four District championship game.

The Irish senior averaged nearly 19 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists per game this season and will graduate third on Ursuline’s all-time scoring list with 1,297 career points. Pankey was a First Team All-State selection, helped lead the Irish to 22 wins, and will continue playing basketball next year at West Liberty University.
