BOYS

FIRST TEAM

Rodney Bullock, Kecoughtan, sophomore.

After growing a couple inches during the off-season to 6-foot-7, Bullock was even more dominant as an inside-outside threat. He finished the season averaging 18.2 points, 10 rebounds and four blocked shots a game. And to make things even more unfair for those guarding him, he has developed an accurate 3-point shot.

Troy Williams, Phoebus, sophomore

Having sprouted from 6-3 to 6-6 in the offseason, Boo Williams' nephew evolved into a quick, explosive offensive machine. He averaged 16.6 ppg in the Phantoms' wide-open offense, getting shots at various angles that included above the rim. ESPN.com ranks him 19th nationally among the current sophomore class.

Aaron Bacote, Bethel, junior

He's not as flashy or electrifying as others on this list, but few have a better all-around game. He led the Bruins at 15.2 ppg with a career high 32 coming against Atlantic Shores Christian in the Ronald Curry Christmas Classic. Has at least three offers (Providence, Rhode Island, St. Francis) so far, and more will follow.

Shaquille Rodney, Tabb, junior

It's unlikely any player in the Bay Rivers District's previous 20 seasons was selected player of the year with a lower scoring average than Rodney's 11.3 points. But his 10 rebounds per game and ability to play defense like no one else, earned him opposing coaches' respect and helped Tabb win the district title en route to a third consecutive state tournament appearance.

Corey Brown, Walsingham, junior

Brown continues accumulate big numbers for Walsingham, one of the best non-AAA programs in the area. Averaged 11.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists at guard in earning Division 2 all-state honors and helping the Trojans reach the state quarterfinals. Has more than 1,011 career points and 523 rebounds.
