    It’s going to be interesting to see who wins this. I feel like Moreno and Allen will get a decent amount of votes.

    The winner should come from Tandy, Johnson, Cozart, Moreno or Rode.......especially if Moreno comes back. I don't believe Allen played enough. If he had been able to play longer and continued his pre-injury performance, then he'd have been a shoo-in.

    With Johnson, Moreno, and Allen all spending time with injuries this year. Should be between Tandy & Rode. Both would be very legit winners who have done it since early in their careers.

    I believe Allen is the best of the players, and has been since his middle school years, but his lengthy injury hurts his senior year candidacy.

    How many of these kids have you seen play in their high school years?

    Agree on all points.

    It should really be this simple but it won’t be.

    The only two people who it should be between is Tandy and Rode IMO.

    I struggle making an argument for anyone besides those two and I heavily lean towards KyKy Tandy being the winner.

    All members of the KABC get to vote. I know some assistant coaches who voted as well.

    There are a ton votes involved in this process.

    Pretty sure members of the Lion’s Club get votes as well.

    All head coaches get a vote, as well as members of the KABC, former Mr. Basketball winners, select media members, and members of the Lion's Eye Foundation. The email with the final ballot went out yesterday.

    I personally don’t think Moreno or Allen should even be in the discussion for their regions. They’ve only played 12 or 13 games and missed over half the season.

    I'm in agreement with your thoughts.

    Hard to believe there is no love for Cozart.

    I think Isaiah Cozart is an interesting case when you look at his resume. Hes the mix of a great senior season and a great career that so many people argue which holds more weight in the Mr. Basketball conversation. Also, I am pretty sure hes the only candidate on the list that has broken multiple state records. Most blocked shots in a season and a career.

    Unfortunate for them, but I agree fully.

    Tandy should win, in my opinion.
