Franklin's Luke Kennard is AP Ohio Mr. Basketball

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Luke Kennard could have been Mr. Football. Instead, he has won the state's top award in basketball first.

The 6-foot-6 Franklin High School junior, also an all-state quarterback, was a unanimous choice as winner of the Ohio Associated Press Mr. Basketball award, emblematic of the best boys player in the state.

His numbers were staggering. Maybe that's why the list of his final five college basketball choices reads like a who's who: Duke, Ohio State, Kentucky, North Carolina and Michigan. He notes that those are in no particular order.

Kennard averaged 41 points, 10.4 rebounds, four assists and two steals a game. He scored 50 points or more three times while shooting over 50 percent from the field, 42 percent on 3-pointers and 85 percent at the line.
