Snubs

I've already stated on twitter, but to me it makes no sense to not see LaMontray Harris as a finalist for Mr. Basketball. Harris averaged 20.33 points and 9.44 rebounds per game in games where PRP reported stats to the KHSAA. Harris also led Pleasure Ridge Park to a Louisville Invitational Tournament championship, he averaged 26 points and 13 rebounds during the tournament and was named tournament MVP. Harris is the best player on a consensus Top 10 team in the state, he's earned the right to be named a Mr. Basketball finalist.

I also think Montgomery County senior Bryan Wallace has a bone to pick as he's led Montgomery County to an 18-0 start. He's averaging 17.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, definitely Mr. Basketball type numbers. Would have loved to see him invited as well.
