Jeronne Maymon makes room in his trophy case

Call it a clean sweep for Jeronne Maymon.

The 6'6" forward, Buzz Williams' first commit as head coach, last week was named the state's Mr. Basketball and last night was announced as the 2008-2009 Associated Press Player of the Year. Maymon, who won the AP award last year as well, secured his legacy as one of the most dominant high school players in the history of the state.

Maymon averaged 18 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game this season. The 6'6" strongman saved his best for last as he dominated the state title game with 25 points and 12 boards in Memorial's convincing 56-41 victory over Racine Horlick.

Maymon was a unanimous choice for first-team all-state in this year's AP balloting along with fellow first-teamers Jamil Wilson and his Memorial high school teammate Vander Blue. Maymon compiled a gaudy 94-9 record in four varsity seasons at Madison Memorial.

For those that have not seen him play, he has nice athletic ability for his size and can run the floor well. He has room to put on some muscle, but is not overly thin right now. He has good instincts offensively and shoots free throws well, but needs to get a little more aggressive on defense and on the boards.

Overall, he is a legit D-1 talent and should do well if he applys himself in college. Marquette should be excited.
