First Team: Romeo Weems, New Haven
Weems burst onto the scene as a freshman phenom last year and, this year, he further legitimized his name among the state's best. Named the Class B Player of the Year by the Associated Press, Weems averaged 18.1 points, 11.4 rebounds, 3.9 steals, 3.6 assists and 2.8 blocked shots this year while leading New Haven to its first Class B state title.
In the semifinals, he had 14 points and 13 rebounds. He followed that up with 19 points and 10 rebounds on 5-for-6 shooting while going 8-for-11 from the free-throw line. In the region semifinals, he had 18 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals. He already has offers from the University of Detroit, Oakland and Creighton. He also has gotten offers from Michigan State and Ohio State and letters of interest from Michigan, Kansas and Florida State, among others.
"He's a great, great talent and a special kid," New Haven coach Tedaro France said. "The sky is the limit for him. With him, he continues to get better day by day. If he continues to work and he continues to get better, he's going to do great things."
