Best of the High School Boys: Mr. Basketball Finalists and All-Metro

The Mr. Basketball finalists finally have been named, and basically it is the all-metro team without Tyus Jones, who is too young to be Mr. Basketball.

Mr. Basketball Finalists

Siyani Chambers, Hopkins
Joey King, Eastview
Johnny Woodard, Duluth East
Sanjay Lumpkin and Isaiah Zierden, Benilde-St. Margaret's


Chambers, King, Lumpkin, Zierden and Tyus Jones

2nd Team: Quinton Hooker, Sean Scott, Marcus Tyus, Rashad Vaughn, Graham Woodward

3rd Team: Dwight Anderson, Nate Kratch, Marcus Marshall, C.J. Neumann, Darrion Strong, Feid Travis, Kebu Johnson

My Take

If Benilde has 2 of the best 5 players in the state, how come they're not in the state tourney? I would have Sean Scott and Marcus Marshall among the finalists and on the 1st all-metro team, by hook or by crook. Don't make me tell you who I would dump.


  1. Too young to be Mr. Basketball? Dumb. Give it to whoever deserves it.

  2. Mr. Basketball is a senior, by definition. That's what Mr. Basketball is, the best senior.
