February 28, 2012By Nathan Pohlman of Northwest
Ada senior guard Konnor Baker was chosen as the 2011-12 NWC Player of The Year by Northwest Conference boys basketball coaches at the annual selection meeting Monday evening at Delphos Jefferson. Baker received 134 of a possible 135 points in the coaches’ voting.
Baker averaged 20.6 points per game along with 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists for the Bulldogs, and it marked Baker’s third straight year as a first team all-conference performer.
He was joined on the NWC first team by LCC’s Tyler O’Connor, Spencerville’s Eli Bowers, Columbus Grove’s Jordan Travis, and LCC’s Billy Taflinger. O’Connor also made first team all-conference for the third year in a row.
The voting procedure called for each coach to vote for the top 15 players on a 15-14-13, etc. point descending scale. No coach could vote for his own players.
In a conference first, three coaches received identical vote totals, so Jeremy Best of Crestview, Frank Kill of Lima Central Catholic, and Ryan Stechschulte of Columbus Grove all earned Co-Coach of the Year honors in the NWC.
The team breakdowns are as follows:
