BREAKING: New Haven’s Romeo Weems wins Michigan’s Mr. Basketball award

The 2019 Hal Schram Mr. Basketball award has been announced and there is little surprise.

According to reports, Romeo Weems of New Haven High School has been named Mr. Basketball for the state of Michigan for the 2018-2019 season.

From MLive:

Weems finished with 3,689 voting points to lead the four finalists, easily surpassing runner-up B. Artis White of Canton, who finished with 1,798 points. Detroit Renaissance’s Chandler Turner finished third with 1,520 points while Joe Moon of Westland John Glenn was fourth with 1,372 points.

So far this winter, Weems is averaging 27.5 points, 11.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 4.1 steals and 2.2 blocks per game while leading New Haven to a 24-1 record. He led New Haven to a Class B state championship in 2017 and to the state semifinals last year. He is still in pursuit of another state title this winter as his season continues on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. when New Haven takes on Harper Woods Chandler Park Academy in the Division 2 state quarterfinals at Ortonville-Brandon High School.

Big Ten Tournament: EVERY game predicted!

On Saturday, both Purdue and Michigan State handled their business to earn a share of the Big Ten regular-season title as each team finished with a 16-4 conference record.

With the regular season in the books, it’s now time to focus in on the Big Ten Tournament which tips off on Wednesday at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The No. 1 seeded Michigan State Spartans and the No. 3 seeded Michigan Wolverines will get some time to rest as they will not play until Friday.

WEDNESDAY

No. 13 Nebraska vs. No. 12 Rutgers

In their only matchup of the season, Rutgers beat Nebraska by seven. Though neither of these teams has a shot to make any noise in the tournament, the Scarlett Knights are the better squad.

Rutgers 70 Nebraska 65

No. 14 Northwestern vs. No. 11 Illinois

Northwestern and Illinois split their head to head matchups during the regular season with each team winning on their home court. That being said, Northwestern solidified themselves as the worst team in the conference by dropping 11 of their final 12 games of the season. Illinois is not much better but they will win a close one.

Illinois 77 Northwestern 73
