Alabama Signee Braxton Key Named MVP in National Championship Victory
The Alabama men's basketball team wasn't able to finish this season like it wanted, but there's a lot to be excited about in year two under Avery Johnson.
The Crimson Tide head coach landed two of the top players for 2016, including Oak Hill small forward Braxton Key. The 6-8, 220 pound athlete led his team to a 62-60 win over La Lumiere in the DICK'S High School Nationals over the weekend.
Key led Oak Hill with 20 points and nine rebounds, which earned him MVP honors for the tournament.
Key turned in a tremendous all-around performance in the tournament to end his high school career. His team might not have made the championship game had it not been for the this block in the semifinals to secure a one-point victory.
Key is rated as a top 100 prospect and will join the Alabama basketball team later this year.
