First team

Brandon Allen

Haslett

5-9, Sr. G

Set five Haslett school records: career points (1,654); career 3-pointers (218) and season (74, last year); career free throws (332); and game 3-pointers (eight).

Coach Chris Smith: “Over the last two years he really grew into a player that got his teammates more involved and helped make them better. A coaches’ dream and leader by example, spent more time working on his game than anyone I’ve ever seen.”

Kevin McKay, Warren De La Salle

KEVIN MCKAY

WARREN DE LA SALLE

6-3, SR. PG/SG

De La Salle’s all-time points leader and four-year varsity player averaged 22 points, five rebounds and 4.5 assists this season. Shot 39% from three-point range and 75% from the line. Committed to Central Michigan.

Coach Greg Esler: “Kevin can flat-out score. He can get to the rim and finish, and he’s improved on his three-point shot, as he now uses it as a weapon.”

Karmari Newman, Detroit East English

Karmari Newman

Detroit East English Village

6-4, Sr. G (captain)

Dangerous off the dribble or with his feathery left-handed jump shot, Newman averaged 22 points, five rebounds and four assists. An improved ball handler, he’s a handful in the open court. Committed to George Mason.

Coach Juan Rickman: “He has an incredible work ethic, which has helped set the foundation of our basketball program. Karmari is also one of the best scorers I’ve coached.”

Foster Loyer, Clarkston

Foster Loyer, Clarkston

FOSTER LOYER

Clarkston

6-0, So. G

The son of former Pistons interim coach John Loyer averaged 17 points with five assists for the OAA Red Division co-champions. A 90% shooter at the free-throw line, has an active streak of 48 straight makes.

Coach Dan Fife: “He’s grown up playing basketball, and he’s comfortable in his surroundings, so he’s not intimidated playing against kids three or four years older. He’s extremely competitive, but not in a negative way.”

Brandon Johns, East Lansing

Brandon Johns, East Lansing

Brandon Johns

East Lansing

6-8, So. G

Johns averaged a double-double at 20 points and 10 rebounds per game, while making 55 triples at a rate of 40% shooting efficiency.

Coach Steve Finamore: “He’s an extraordinary three-point shooter and I think college coaches are already seeing that. With his size most would expect us to put him down low, but we put him on the perimeter because he can shoot the three and handle the ball so well. He’s the most improved player I’ve seen in a one-year stretch.”
