The 2010 WGAM Mr. Basketball Award will be given out tomorrow night - May 13, 2010 at the Radisson Hotel in Nashua. All of the finalists for the award and their coaches will be on "The Home Team" from 5-6 on WGAM, with the award ceremony beginning at 6 PM.
What is unique about this award is that ANY player, regardless of which year they're in in high school, or which division/class their school plays in; ANY player in the NHIAA is eligible to win this award.
The award was voted on by various members of the state's high school hoops media, including members of WGAM's Friday Night Light's broadcasts. The FNL crew came up with a list of about 20 candidates. From there the various members of the media voted on our top 5 players from the list. From that voting, the 5 finalists were decided as well as the winner. The 5 finalists were released weeks ago. The winner will be announced tomorrow night at the ceremony.
Here are the 5 finalists:
*Alex Burt, Dover High School, Sr.
*Alex LaRosa, Salem High School, Sr.
*David Madol, Trinity High School, Jr.
*Sean Martin, Conant High School, Sr.
*Zach Mathieu, Pinkerton Academy, Sr.
