In addition to being able to score, Brite recorded double-digit assists five times in a game and set a new school record for steals as Nansemond River reached 20-plus wins for the fifth time in seven years.

Johnson was the catalyst for King’s Fork’s playoff run as the Bulldogs made it to the regional semifinals for the third time in four years, upsetting Beach District Champion Landstown. Skilled enough to do damage both close to and away from the cup, Johnson’s play got even better during regionals, with averages of 17.6 points and 11.3 boards per contest.

Shannon Evans, Nansemond River (Sr.)

Nobody in the entire Southeastern District made more three-pointers and scored more points than Evans, who finished the season as the region’s fourth-highest scorer and shot 44 percent from beyond the arc.

Rodney Goodman, Lakeland (Sr.)

Athletic and rangy, Goodman was the Cavaliers’ most consistent performer this past season, earning Second -Team All-Southeastern District honors with averages of 13 points and 11 rebounds per game.

John Joyce, Nansemond River (Sr.)

In the playoffs, Joyce became more of a force for the Warriors, averaging 11.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 5.5 blocks and three steals per game during the Eastern Region Tournament.

Jacorey Smith, King’s Fork (Jr.)

Not only was Smith a capable offensive threat for the Bulldogs at over nine points per game, but he also provided great energy and intensity on the defensive end all season long.
