The Dominion Post

Morgantown High assistant boys' basketball coach Jeff Hoffman took one look at the gathering of players getting their pictures taken and started shaking his head.

"That's a lot of talent right there," he said. "I could win a state championship with that team."

That team was the first-ever All The Dominion Post boys' basketball team.

"Great shooters," Hoffman continued. "Good rebounding. Those five have a little bit of everything."

And a bit more.

Player of the Year Bobby Prim, of Morgantown High, headlines the first team.

In his senior season, Prim led the Mohigans in scoring at 13.3 points and 4.3 assists from his point guard position.

His no-look passes and fast breaks may have been his trademark, but Prim's game also included steady ball control and a soft 3-point shooting touch. Prim hit 37 3-pointers during the season.

MHS teammate Ronnie Shaver joins Prim on the first team. Shaver brings to the table a little bit of everything.

He averaged 12.7 points, hit 14 3-pointers and was one of the area's leading rebounders.

Together, the duo led the Mohigans to a 22-4 record, the Class AAA Region III title and a trip to the state semifinals.

Preston's Thomas Hooton was the area's leading scorer at 18.4 ppg, but there's more to his game than scoring.

Hooton can play forward or guard and is quick enough to guard both on the defensive end. A solid rebounder, Hooton will always be remembered for his 3-point shooting ability. The senior finished his season with 59 3-pointers.

While Prim and Hooton put up solid 3-point shooting numbers, they had nothing on Clay-Battelle's Matt Eddy.

A senior, Eddy connected on 71 3-pointers, averaging 3.1 a game. Eddy combined his outside shooting with an ability to drive to the basket and finished with a 17.4 scoring average.

Fairmont Senior's 6-foot-6 Cornelius Dillard rounds out the first team. Dillard, who also has a dangerous outside shot for a big man, led the Polar Bears to a 21-3 record and a trip to the Region III title game.

Dillard averaged 12.1 points for the last Class AAA team to fall from the ranks of the undefeated this season.

The second team is just as dangerous from every spot on the floor as the first team.

Morgantown High's Justin Vidovich and Nick Hedges were key components to the Mohigans' state tournament run.

Vidovich averaged 12 points and created a personal highlight reel with his slam dunks. The senior also hit 25 3-pointers, second-most on the team.

Hedges led the Mohigans in rebounding at 6.6 a game and added 11.9 points. From his center spot, Hedges created defensive mismatches with his ability to knock down the outside shot. Hedges finished with 23 3-pointers.

Fairmont Senior's backcourt combo of Stephen Sutherland and Will Bridges may have been one of the best in the state.

Knocking down 3-pointers and driving to the basket were their specialty. Bridges led the Polar Bears in scoring at 15.8 points, while Sutherland, the only underclassmen on either team, chipped in 12.9.

East Fairmont's swingman Jimmy Wyant rounds out the second team as the area's third-leading scorer. Wyant averaged 16.2 points for the Bees.
