Naismith Finalists: John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins

The finalists for the Naismith High School Player of the Year Award were announced yesterday. Oh the joy of seeing two Pack prospects on this list! Drum roll please...here are your finalists:

Renardo Sydney of Fairfax (Cal.), Kenny Boynton of Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage, DeMarcus Cousins of Mobile (Ala.) Le Flore, Derrick Favors of South Atlanta, and John Wall of Raleigh (N.C.) Word of God Christian Academy.

The winner will be announced in early March. If the POY award is to go to the player that leads the best squad then this battle could come down to the wire between Sydney and Cousins. MaxPreps ranks LeFlore at #8 nationally and Fairfax at #16. This week's USAToday poll puts a slightly different twist on things. They have Sydney's Fairfax team currently ranked #11 and Cousins' LeFlore crew ranked at #13.

    Wall has said that he will make his decision in April. Most believe that Cousins will come to a decision quicker than Wall.
