By a ‘landslide’: Keith Appling wins Michigan Mr. Basketball

No one is surprised that the MSU-bound Keith Appling won the Mr. Basketball award. What is surprising, however, is that he won it in a runaway.

Appling, who signed with MSU, won the award in a landslide, accumulating 2,037 points. Mt. Pleasant’s Trey Zeigler was second with 1,145 points, followed by Ray McCallum of Birmingham Detroit Country Day (934), Maurice Jones of Saginaw Arthur Hill (868), Devin Oliver of Kalamazoo Central (470) and Michael Talley III of Melvindale AB&T (360).

I’d love to know how this race, one that so many had called among the closest ever, could turn out to be so lopsided.
