2008-09 boys basketball all-state teams

The boys high school basketball teams were finally released (our All-City and All-Area teams ran April 2-5) and a number of Section II players made the cut.

Maple Hill's Trent Tibbitts (21) was the only Section II player named to a first team, earning such Class C honors. Of course, the NYSSWA spelled his name wrong, but then again, this was the organization that called the school "Maple Hills" for the first four or five weeks of state rankings in late 2008.

Tibbitts had a fantastic senior season, but it's perhaps a misguided exclamation point on the Wildcats' season as Maple Hill advanced to the state championship game on the strength of their tremendous depth and team chemistry. It was so hard to single any of Maple Hill's players out during the season since all five players were working together seamlessly on the floor, so let's remember that it wasn't just Tibbitts who got them there and I think he would be the first one to point that out.

Lansingburgh's Haneef Scott deserved mention on one of the Class A teams and I'm not sure how he was left off.

Here is the list and I have not made any edits to it - I see that Loudonville Christian was spelled wrong, as was Tibbitts, and I"m sure there are a few more errors.

Who do you think got snubbed and why?
