ATLANTA — Forward Andrew Wiggins of Huntington Prep in Huntington, W. Va., has been named the 2013 Naismith Trophy winner for Boy’s High School Player of the Year Award, the Atlanta Tipoff Club announced today. Quincy Lewis of Lone Peak High School in Highland, Utah, was selected as the Naismith Boy’s High School Coach of the Year. Both winners will be recognized at the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Naismith Awards Banquet on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, in Atlanta.
Averaging 23.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 3.4 steals and 2.1 blocks per game, Wiggins was chosen from a field that included finalists Aaron Gordon and Jabari Parker.
