CHASE NOVAK, McConnellsburg, so., G: Novak led the Spartans with 14.2 points per game and shot 75.6 percent from the free-throw line ...

MIKELL MCGEE, Fannett-Metal, so., G: McGee led the area with an average of 21.6 points per game ... "He is definitely a pure shooter, and he shoots with a lot of confidence," F-M coach Greg Best said. "He's one of those kids that is always in the gym shooting any time he has a free moment.

You could see how good he was offensively from the beginning, but defensively, he really came on as the year went on. We relied on him to match up with the other teams' best guards."

RYAN KELLEY, Waynesboro, sr., G: Kelley finished the year as the Indians' leading scorer with 13.1 points per game ... He led the team with 68 assists and 44 steals ...
