Most underrated player: Dwight Sanders - Mount Clemens
The Senior guard averaged 10 points per game in 19 games and just 2 assists & rebounds per game.
Most surprising player: Roemello Moore - New Haven
One of a handful of Sophomores who not only started but had a big role on the team. Moore finished with an average of 6 points per game but played at a really high level for the Rockets all year.
Player on the rise: Jamael Bell - New Haven
Bell filed in for the suspended Farr for one game, if you did not see New Haven play that night, your opinion of them would not of changed.
Coach of the year: Tedaro France - New Haven
Coach France was able to keep the Rockets playing at a high level all season. With a team full of sophomores and 2 seniors, you would expect a lot of noticeable flaws. But that was not the case, when players were not doing well, they were taken out of the game and coached. They back and did really well. The MAC Gold was really tough this year but New Haven nearly won it. It is tough to tofocus on just 1 sophomore because they all played really well.
Team of the year: Saint Clair
The Saints were hot to season but faded, however towards the end they quickly came back and earned a share of the MAC Gold title. Mount Clemens just needed to win out after beating SterlingHeights on Valentine's Day but Saint Clair had different plans. The quick and aggressive Saints defeated top dog Anchor Bay at Anchor Bay during the districts but they fell to L'Anse Creuse in the district final. The Saints went 16-7. Both Saint Clair and Mount Clemens went 8-4 in the MAC Gold, splitting the title with one another.
