It was been a big week for Michigan on the court, but it was a big day for future Wolverine Isaiah Livers as he was awarded Michigan’s Mr. Basketball award.
Livers will be the first Michigan Mr. Basketball to attend Michigan since Manny Harris. Livers edged Michigan State commitment Xavier Tillman by a final point tally of 2,811 to 2,739.
Livers averaged 17.5 points, 14 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game during the regular season. Here’s what Livers’ coach told the Free Press about his honor:
“He’s a once-in-a-lifetime player, and it’s big for our school and big for our team and big for the city Kalamazoo that he was able to win this award,” Kalamazoo Central coach Ramsey Nichols said. “It’s huge. (It) shows that there’s definitely talent on this side of the state, just like there is talent on the east side of the state, as well.”
