Yesterday the Associated Press named John Wall the men's prep basketball Player of the Year. John carried 6 out of a possible 16 votes and barely clipped junior Reggie Bullock by one vote. John averaged 21 points, 7 rebounds, and 9 assists for Word of God Academy this season and led them to their third straight State Championship game (WOG lost to United Faith in the title game). Reggie Bullock, who came in second with 5 votes, averaged 23 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists for Kinston this year. C.J. finished third, receiving 3 votes. Harris, a Wake Forest commit, led Mt. Tabor to the 4-A State Championship and averaged 23 points a game as well.
