  • Brunson repeats as Gatorade’s Illinois player of the year Mar 20, 2015 3:04 PM
    The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, has named Stevenson senior guard Jalen Brunson its Gatorade Illinois boys basketball player of the year. It’s the second year in a row that the Villanova recruit has earned the honor. The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the court, distinguishes Brunson as Illinois’ best high school boys basketball player. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade national boys basketball player of the year award to be announced this month, Brunson joins an elite alumni association of past state award winners, including eventual NBA all-stars Dwight Howard, Chauncey Billups, Jason Kidd, Paul Pierce and Chris Bosh. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Brunson has led Stevenson to a 28-3 record and berth downstate for the third year in a row. The Patriots face Bolingbrook in a 6:30 p.m. Class 4A state semifinal game at 6:30 p.m. Friday in Peoria.
