Wisconsin Sports Network is proud to showcase the WSN Senior Basketball Awards. The finalists for the top senior wings have been selected. The winner will be announced the week after the state tournament. 

Bennett Basich, 6-4, G, Arrowhead
A three-time first-team all-Classic Eight Conference performer and the Player of the Year as a senior, Basich has helped Arrowhead to consecutive appearances in the WIAA Division 1 State Tournament. The Green Bay recruit is averaging 20.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.0 assists to pave the way for yet another extremely talented team at the school. Basich's ability to impact the game with his shooting, defense and all-around activity are evident each time he competes.

Stevie Clark, 6-6, G/F, Oshkosh North
Clark's size and aggressiveness, particularly with the ball in his hands, spell major trouble for opponents and he consistently gets to the basket and finishes through contact. The Colgate recruit averaged 22.4 points and 6.1 rebounds while leading Oshkosh North to a 20-6 record and the Fox Valley Association title. The two-time first-team all-league pick concluded his prep career with 1,979 points. 

Amari McCottry, 6-5, G/F, Saint Thomas More
McCottry is a tough cover when he initiates the Cavaliers' offense because he can score at different levels while also tossing the ball to his teammates in scoring position. The versatility, size, strength and skill of McCottry have attracted the attention of many NCAA Division I schools with Xavier the latest to join the recruitment of the three-time first-team all-Metro Classic Conference selection. McCottry is averaging 22.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists for a Saint Thomas More team that takes a 27-1 record into the WIAA D3 State Tournament.

Michael McNabb Jr., 6-4, G/F, Grafton
A three-time first-team all-league pick in the North Shore Conference, McNabb finished his four-year prep career with a whopping 2,157 points. He averaged 28.0 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.7 steals as a senior for the Black Hawks. His ability to shoot from the perimeter, score near the basket and haul down rebounds translates well for his future at NCAA Division II Northern Michigan.

Nolan Minessale, 6-5, G/F, Marquette
One of the more exciting dunks in the state, Minessale is at his best attacking the basket and finishing above the rim. His ability to drive to the hoop puts extreme pressure on defenses as he can score and distribute. The Player of the Year in the Greater Metro as a junior, Minessale has led Marquette to back-to-back league titles. The St. Thomas recruit is averaging 21.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.7 assists for the state-bound Hilltoppers.
