The USA Today has named its 2015-16 American Family Insurance All-USA Kentucky boys’ and girls’ basketball teams.
Paul Laurence Dunbar Coach Scott Chalk, who guided the Bulldogs to their first state championship this season, was named boys’ Coach of the Year on Tuesday. Butler’s Larry Just, who coached the Bearettes to their fifth title in program history, received girls’ Coach of the Year honors last week.
Taveion Hollingsworth of Dunbar, named MVP of this year’s Sweet 16, was the only junior named to the boys’ first team. Darius Williams (Dunbar) and Isaiah “Pun” Tisdale each made the second team.
Frankfort’s BriAnna Burbridge and Franklin County’s Princess Stewart each made the girls’ first team. Emma Young, who finished as East Jessamine’s all-time leading scorer, was named to the second team.
