Section 1’s newest Mr. Basketball will be honored tonight at the Lower Hudson Basketball Coaches Association’s annual awards banquet.
The banquet is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Doubletree in Tarrytown. In addition to Mr. Basketball, the LHBCA will name its other first-team players, five in total.
All of tonight’s honors are bestowed by the coaches, who cast their votes by the end of the Section 1 tournament.
In my estimation — and probably most of yours — Spring Valley’s Rickey McGill enters tonight as a huge favorite to be named Mr. Basketball. Last year’s winner was another Rockland player, Kevin Degnan of Pearl River.
