Leading off today:
Savion Lewis of Half Hollow Hills East and Jordan Nixon of The Mary Louis Academy have garnered the state's top honor for high school basketball seniors.
The Basketball Coaches Association of New York named Lewis its recipient of the 2018 Mr. New York Basketball Award and Nixon was selected Miss New York Basketball on Friday.
Lewis is his school's all-time leader in points, assists, and steals as Half Hollow Hills East enters Saturday's New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class AA semifinals in Binghamton.
The Quinnipiac recruit is a third-year captain at his school and was selected first-team all-state a year ago by the New York State Sportswriters Association.
The guard is averaging better than 34 points, seven assists and five steals per game while shooting 56 percent overall and 42 percent on 3-point attempts.
Lewis is the first recipient of the award from Long Island since Achraf Yacoubou of Long Island Lutheran shared the 2011 honor with Mount Vernon's Jabarie Hinds. Tobias Harris of Half Hollow Hills West was selected Mr. Basketball in 2010.
Isaiah Washington of St. Raymond's in the CHSAA was the 2017 winner. He now plays for the University of Minnesota.
Nixon averaged better than 22 points, 5.8 assists and 6.1 rebounds a game for TMLA in the CHSAA's Brooklyn-Queens Class AA division, historically one of the toughest leagues in the country.
Nixon, who has committed to Notre Dame, was previously named to the roster for the McDonald's All-American game.
