Gary Harris wins Mr. Basketball; IU recruit Yogi Ferrell finishes second.

Hamilton Southeastern's Gary Harris, who is Michigan State-bound, won Indiana's Mr. Basketball, as announced in today's paper by the Indianapolis Star, which sponsors the award. Park Tudor's Yogi Ferrell, IU's prized point guard recruit, finished second in what the Star says was the closest vote since 2005. I really thought that after Harris's HSE team lost in the first round in the sectional and Ferrell led Park Tudor to its second consecutive 2A state championship, that Yogi would have the advantage. I think Harris probably was helped by the fact that Carmel, the team that upset HSE in the sectional, won the 4A state title. In any event, it's hard to argue with the choice, although I certainly hoped Ferrell would win.
