Mr. Basketball

The list of the Florida Dairy Darmers Mr. Basketball finalists:

Class 6A Kenny Boynton, Ely

Class 5A Nick Calathes, Winter Park Lake Howell

Class 4A Adam Allen, Milton, senior,

Rihard Kuksiks, Melbourne Florida Air Academy

Class....wooo, wait a minute. This is where I have the Geico Caveman reaction. What?

Ok, Allen may be headed to UF and scored 1,200 points at Milton, but are you serious that this award didn't go to Pace's Ray Shipman?

Unless this was voted for before the state final four...which is very likely...let's not go only on stats, people. Shipman, the state tournament MVP, played a tremendous two games in Lakeland and was the catalyst for Pace's state title run.

Class 3A

Class 2A Devon Lamb, Jacksonville Arlington Country Day

Class 1A Vytas Sulkis, Gainesville Rock School

By the same token, Kenny Boynton in 6A, good job making up for previously not having him on the ballot at all and rewarding a very deserving player.

And in Class 2A, Lamb is for real. Whoever picks him up at the next level has a steal.
