Fans should have known Treasure Hunt is going to be a special addition to the BBN based on her name alone, but she’s continuing to back her potential up by earning another big award. The five-star guard has been tabbed the MaxPreps Tennessee Player of the Year.

Hunt is ranked as a top-10 player in the 2020 class by the All-Star Girls Report, while tabs her as their 15th best player in the class. During her senior season, she averaged 24.7 points per game to go along with 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks per game. During her career, Hunt scored over 2,000 points and helped her team win over 100 games.

The player of the year honor for Hunt is just one of her many accolades this season, including 2020 Women’s Basketball Coaches Association High School Coaches’ All-America honorable mention and 2020 Jersey Mike’s Naismith National High School All-America third team. Hunt was also tabbed to the home roster for the 2020 Jordan Brand Classic and the 2020 McDonald’s All-American Game roster, and she was one of 10 semifinalists for the 2020 Naismith High School Girls Trophy.

Fellow UK Hoops signees Erin Toller and Nyah Leveretter were tabbed all-state performers. Hunt, Leveretter and Toller each signed their National Letters of Intent to play at Kentucky back in November, and they now make up a top-20 recruiting class in the nation according to Leveretter and Toller were both honored as nominees for the McDonald’s All-American Game.
