What do Sebastian Telfair, Johnny Flynn, Stephon Marbury, Elton Brand, Jamal Mashburn, Malik Sealy and Kenny Anderson all have in common? They were all named Mr. Basketball in the state of New York. Minnesota Golden Gophers commit, Isaiah Washington has just won this prestigious award.

Washington is a point guard with fantastic handles and is bringing his talents to The Barn next season. He recently finished his high school career at St. Raymond’s High School in Bronx. As a senior he averaged 26 points and 6 assists per game.

He is going to be a huge boost to the backcourt next season and should provide some excitement in The Barn.
