Lewis-Palmer’s Scott named boys basketball POY

The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with ESPNHS, announced Thursday that Josh Scott of Lewis-Palmer High School has been named the 2011-12 Gatorade Colorado Boys Basketball Player of the Year.

The senior center led the Rangers to a 27-1 record and the Class 4A state championship this season.

Scott scored 23 points and grabbed five rebounds in a 44-43 victory over Sierra High in the championship game, capturing the tournament’s Most Valuable Player honors.

A returning 4A First Team All-State selection, Scott averaged 28.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game as well as shooting 72.3 percent from the field and 75.8 percent from the free-throw line.

Scott maintained a B average in the classroom and has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball on scholarship at the University of Colorado in the fall.
