Newsday player of the year

Tobias Harris

Half Hollow Hills West, F, 6-8 Sr.


Nassau player of the year

Achraf Yacoubou

Long Island Lutheran, G, 6-5, Jr.

Tajric Boggs

Longwood, G, 5-11, Sr.

The engine that drove Longwood's high-scoring machine. He could score (14.1 ppg), pass (3.9 apg) and defend (3.9 spg) and his disruptive defense often triggered the break. A broken foot kept him out of the Hills West game. Teamed with Darien Davis and Paris Parks to form the Island's deepest and best backcourt.


Darien Davis

Longwood, G, 6-1 Sr.

The best long-range shooter on the highest-scoring team on Long Island. The Lions thrived on pressure defense to create turnovers and Davis frequently finished the fast break with a perimeter three. Averaged 23.1 points, six assists and 2.8 steals. Scored 22 in dramatic season-ending loss to Hills West in Suffolk AA title game.


Khaleev Ginyard

St. John the Baptist, G, 5-7 Sr.

He is quick, but his release is quicker. This little guard has tremendous range, as seen in the CHSAA semifinals where he hit nine three-pointers and scored a career-high 40 points. He averaged 21.2 points and eclipsed 1,000 career points as the Cougars were unbeaten in league play.

Sheldon Hagigal

Westbury, G, 6-2, Jr.

Averaged 22 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals for the Long Island Class A champions. Scored 33 points, including the winning jumper at the buzzer, in the L.I. championship against Harborfields. Had 37 points in OT win over South Side in the Nassau semifinal. Missed first seven games of season with a fractured fibula.


Chavaughn Lewis

St. Mary's, G, 6-4 Jr.

A versatile two-way player, the junior guard averaged 16.5 points, nine rebounds, and four assists while leading St. Mary's to the CHSAA championship. He is a strong defender with a sense of anticipation that allows him to perfectly time a blocked shot or steal.


Matt McLeod

Harborfields, G, 6-3 Jr.

This combo guard could handle the ball (5.0 assists), defend (4.5 steals), rebound (7.0 boards) and, most of all, score in a variety of ways. Not a great long-range shooter, but slashed his way to 20.1 ppg and led Harborfields to the Suffolk Class A and small-school titles.

Dashawn Moorer

Malverne, G, 6-0, Sr.

The quick and smooth shooting guard averaged 25.6 points, three rebounds and four assists as Malverne won a fourth straight L.I. Class B title. Moorer, who emerged as a deadly three-point shooter, scored a school-record 56 points in a four-overtime, 92-89 win against West Hempstead on Dec. 27.

Tavon Sledge

Half Hollow Hills West, G, 5-8 Jr.

The most exciting player on Long Island. Super quick, strong with the ball and a relentless defender. Averaged 17.8 points, 10.4 assists and 3.1 steals. Was especially brilliant in big games, electrifying a huge crowd with his 24-point performance against Longwood in the memorable Suffolk AA title game. Had 33 points in state final loss.
