Kentucky’s homegrown star has won the state’s most prestigious prep award.

On the eve of the Sweet 16 Dontaie Allen was named Mr. Basketball.  The University of Kentucky signee won the award even though he has been sidelined with an ACL tear since late December.

Prior to his injury, the Pendleton County star averaged 42.9 points and 14.2 rebounds per game, the state’s leader in each category.  Allen scored more than 50 points in six of 12 games this season and finished his career as the 10th leading scorer in state history.

Allen is UK’s first Mr. Basketball signee since Dominique Hawkins in 2013.

    Can’t wait to see this guy in blue. Looks like another Darius Miller once he gets healthy.
