St. Mary senior guard Patrick Hubert has been selected as the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches Player of the Year for Region I. He will also represent St. Mary in the 2014 KABC Senior Charity East/West All Star Basketball Game.
Hubert is the first boys basketball player in St. Mary High School history to be recognized as the KABC Regional Player of the Year.
"This selection is a tribute to how hard Patrick has worked over the last four years," St. Mary head coach Greg Overstreet said. "It is also reflective of his teammates. They know he is capable of scoring a lot of points, and they've done a great job of getting him the ball when he's open."
He is a four-year varsity starter for the Vikings. Hubert, the Vikings' leading scorer at just under 20 points per game, recently eclipsed the 2,000 career point mark.
He will be presented the Player of the Year award on March 21 at halftime of the first game of the afternoon session of the Sweet 16 state tournament in Lexington.
He will suit up in the East/West All Star Game on Saturday, March 22, at 1 p.m. EST at Transylvania University, prior to the semifinals of the KHSAA Sweet 16. Hubert was selected by a vote of regional coaches.
While drawing interest from several colleges, Hubert is undecided on his college plans. He is the son of John and Paula Hubert of Grand Rivers.
The Vikings return to action on Tuesday and will open Second District Tournament play against Paducah Tilghman at McCracken County High School at 7:30 p.m.
