Senior Jalen Moore, whose half-court heave in overtime of the in the Class 4A state semifinals helped propel Sky View to the Class 4A state crown, earned MVP honors in 4A.

Senior Jake Miles, Morgan’s prolific scorer, led his team to the state title and was rewarded with the 3A MVP award.

Senior Race Parsons, who finished fifth all time in the state in career points, earned the nod as the 2A MVP.

Senior Braxton Syrett led Bryce Valley to the Class 1A state championship and was named the 1A MVP.
