Msn. East's Nimrod Hilliard named Mr. Basketball

MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison East's point guard Nimrod Hilliard was named Mr. Basketball for the 2010-2011 season, an award he will receive before the Division 1 state championship game Saturday night at the Kohl Center.

Hilliard averaged 24.2, 5.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game this season, despite his smaller frame at 6'0" and 150 pounds.

The Mr. Basketball honor is chosen by a panel of members from the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association.

The senior guard led his team to a 13-11 record as the only returning starter for the Purgolders.

Hilliard will continue his basketball career at South Dakota next year.
