The time has finally come where I ask area high school hoops fans for their opinion before giving mine. Who has earned a spot on the 2017 All-Centercourt Team??? Give it shot. Five teams, with five players on each team, and another 35 players for honorable mention.
In a few weeks, the 10th Annual All-Centercourt Team will be announced, honoring the top 60 seasons turned in by WNY high school players this year. The selections are broken down into a first, second, third, fourth, & fifth team, with five players on each, along with 35 honorable mention selections. There is also an award for the CC MVP (the WNY Player of the Year), Coach of the Year, Sixth Man of the Year, All-Centercourt Defenders, and the Centercourt #BOOM Squad.
The top 60 may sound like a lot, but when you start putting names down on paper, the list fills quickly and inevitably some very good players get left off the list. The main criteria I focus on is the 2017 season, not what you did in the past, and not where you're going in the future...it's all about honoring the top 60 from this season.
Use the comments section below to tell us what your 5 teams would look like and maybe even why. If you're really ambitious, try coming up with the entire team including the HM selections.
Please keep all commentary appropriate when discussing high school athletes, and remember, it is lame to say someone does not belong on a team, without offering up who should be on one. It might be even more lame to give only one or two teams. Show us you've paid attention this season and provide all five teams.
