The accolades for incoming Virginia Basketball player Kyle Guy keep accumulating as the Lawrence Central senior was named the IndyStar Mr. Basketball presented by the Indiana Pacers.

Guy, the only player from Indiana to be named a McDonald's All-American this year, and has propelled his team to an impressive 17-5 record with the toughest schedule in the league. He is averaging 23 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.5 steals per game.

From three-point land, KG is shooting 50-of-111 (45%) and 123-of-141 (87%) from the free throw line.

Oh, and he broke his school's all-time scoring record this season. Ho hum.

The Indiana Sports Awards Banquet took place at Lucas Oil Stadium, and Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was the keynote speaker.

Earlier this month, Guy was named the USA Today Indiana Player of the Year.

Guy, along with classmates Ty Jerome, Jay Huff, and DeAndre Hunter, is part of the No.8 recruiting class for 2016, as ranked by ESPN. That class will be complemented by Memphis transfer Austin Nichols and redshirt freshman Mamadi Diakite who reclassified.
