MILWAUKEE (AP) — Nicolet junior forward Jalen Johnson is The Associated Press' Boys Basketball Player of the Year in Wisconsin.

Johnson averaged 19.7 points, 11.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game for the Knights this season. The 6-foot-9 forward led Nicolet in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals. He recorded triple-doubles seven times.

With Johnson's younger brother, Kobe, joining him in the starting lineup and fellow junior standout Jamari Sibley joining him in a starring role, Nicolet went 27-1 and won the school's first state championship.

Sun Prairie's Jeff Boos was named AP's Boys Basketball Coach of the Year for Wisconsin.

The Cardinals made a late-season surge and an improbable return trip to the WIAA Division 1 state tournament this season, advancing to the title game for the first time and finishing 21-7.

Boos is in his 24th year as Sun Prairie coach.
