Washington Named Mr. New York Basketball
March 20, 2017

University of Minnesota signee Isaiah Washington (Harlem, N.Y./St. Raymond's HS) was selected the top prep player in the state of New York Monday, earning Mr. New York Basketball honors. The award was announced by the Basketball Coaches Association of New York, Inc. Isaiah was selected at the end of a two part process: (1) voting by BCANY and media members and (2) BCANY Committee deliberations.

The Mr. New York Basketball award is presented by the Basketball Coaches Association of New York, Inc, which consists of basketball coaches at the scholastic and collegiate levels from throughout the entire state. The Mr. Basketball Award is widely viewed as the top award that a high school basketball player in New York State can receive.

Washington averaged 26 ppg and 6 assist per game. He is St. Raymond's all-time leading scorer at 1,410 points. He had a 48 and 54 point performance this season. He was the Co MVP in the Elite 24 All Star Game. He was nominated for the McDonald's All American game.

He will become the 32nd Gopher to win Mr. Basketball in their home state, and the first to hail from New York. 

Washington, along with guard Jamir Harris (North Brunswick, N.J./The Patrick School), signed their National Letters of Intent in November to join the Gophers for the upcoming season.
