Midlands boys all-tournament team

March 7, 2010 

Eric Washington, guard

The Keenan junior was not flashy. All he did was get the ball to the right people at the right time. Washington did a good job of slowing Burke's Sidney Sanders in the state championship.

Shaq Roland, guard

The Lexington sophomore did it all, but the Wildcats bid for a state title came up one game short. Roland averaged around 21 points per game in the playoffs, highlighted by a 34-point, 12 rebound, five-assist performance in a second-round win against Berkeley.

David Burns, guard

The Lexington senior raised his scoring average about points per game during the postseason. Outside of his scoring outburst, Burns was responsible for running the Wildcats attack. He always seemed to find the open player and he limited turnovers to a minimum.

Chris Brown, guard

The Dreher senior's shooting touch nearly carried the Blue Devils to the semifinals. He pumped in more than 20 points per game and was a dangerous threat from anywhere on the floor.

Dennis Rowe, guard

Rowe was held to 11 points in Keenan's state title victory against Burke but he was not hesitant to take the big shot down the stretch. He matched his regular-season average of 13 points in the postseason, and he did all the little things.
