Taveion Hollingsworth, a senior at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, has been named Kentucky’s Mr. Basketball for the 2016-17 season. He received the award at a March 14 banquet at the Lexington Center.
Last year, Taveion led Dunbar to its first Sweet Sixteen championship. As a senior, he averaged 28.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per game, and closed out his high school career with 2,495 points.
Taveion, the city’s all-time leading scorer in boys’ basketball, is the first Lexington player to win Mr. Basketball since 1984. He has signed to play college ball at Western Kentucky University.
