■ Key stats: The Division II district co-player of the year led Bobcats to 14-11 record and district semifinals. Brown, who will play in college at Wisconsin, averaged 23.7 points and 13.0 rebounds and had 20 double-doubles this season. He is the school’s all-time leader in rebounds (808) and blocked shots (336). He set school’s single-season record in blocked shots with 97. He shot 53 percent from the field, including 35 percent from 3-point range, and sank 112 of 156 free throws (72 percent). He finished his career with 1,186 points, 94 assists, and 42 steals. Brown earned All-Ohio honorable mention as a junior. He ranks third on the school’s all-time scoring list.

■ Coach says: “What a transformation of a tall young man into an incredible basketball player. He has worked extremely hard the last 18 months to become the player he is today. Vitto has a tremendous upside and will not turn 18 until July. He’s still growing physically. I can’t imagine what his body will develop into. He was our hardest worker, and when your best player is your hardest worker, that makes for a great season. He has a soft touch from the perimeter. He has great shot-blocking ability and is able to rebound. Kids follow him. He put in the extra time in the gym.” — Von Graffin
