Main Street Preps has named its 2021-22 All-Midstate boys basketball team.
See below for superlative honors and the first, second, third and fourth teams, along with honorable mention selections. Stats shown are per-game averages.
Player of the Year: Brandon Miller, Cane Ridge
Resume: 26.3 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 2.1 steals, 1.5 blocks, 41% 3-pt
Miller will likely go down as one of the best high school basketball players to ever come out of Nashville. The 6-foot-9 Mr. Basketball winner, McDonald’s All-American and Jordan Brand Classic selection treated fans to viral dunks and elite 3-point shooting all season. Miller has signed with Alabama and projects as an eventual NBA Draft pick.
Coach of the Year: Kurt Caton, East Robertson
Resume: 27-6 record, Class 1A state title
What the Indians accomplished under Caton this year was nothing short of remarkable. East Robertson began the season 5-5 before winning 22 of its final 23 games – including the Class 1A state title over Peabody for the program’s first gold ball since 1989.
Team of the Year: East Nashville
Resume: 31-3 record, Class 2A state title
There may not have been a more fun team to watch than the Eagles. With standout guard play, high-flying dunks and an abundance of swagger, East Nashville wasn’t going to be denied its first-ever gold ball after coming close several times in recent years. The Eagles finished as the Class 2A runner-up in 2011 and 2014.
