Top 5 Boys Basketball MVP's

1.Jon-Jon Williams, Southfield Lathrup
Williams was by far the most consistent player in Oakland County this season, proving to not only be an elite scorer, but a top notch passer as well which is why he earns MVP honors this season in my book. What set Williams apart from the rest of the big-time scoring threats in Oakland County this season was his ability to knock down 3-pointers at an extremely high rate. It’s hard to believe that Williams is just a junior, and there’s no doubt that Williams will be back and even better next season.

2. Gavin Toma, Southfield Christian
All season long, Toma flew under the radar, but was playing as well as anyone in Oakland County from start to finish. Toma proved to be multi-dimensional, whether scoring 30 points at any time and also dished out the assists like a top-notch point guard. Toma was the extra piece that put the Eagles over the top to win the first state title in school history after missing the majority of the past two seasons due to injury.

3. James Young, Troy
It was quite an interesting season for Troy this season, but luckily for the Colts, they had the state’s top college prospect in Young on the roster. After Troy lost two of its key starters for different reasons, Young simply put Troy on his back, and almost picked up a district title this season. Young had some big games this season, including a 49-point outing against Clarkston, but he showed his true value when Troy needed him most this season.

4. Corey Green, Madison Heights Bishop Foley
Green proved to be the best athlete on the floor in almost every one of the Ventures games this season as Green dominated in almost every game he played in. The senior wasn’t only one of the area’s best scorers and rebounders, but as the season went on he became one of the top defensive post players the county had to offer this season.

5. Damon Bozeman, Madison Heights Madison
Bozeman was without a doubt one of the County’s best scorers throughout much of his career and this season was no different as Bozeman was the centerpiece for a team that was arguably the best scoring team in Oakland County as Madison went over the 100-point plateau a couple of different times this season. Bozeman too showed off his scoring ability scoring 40 or more points in a game this season on several occasions and helped Madison to a 21-3 record.
