Spencer Tollackson, who led the Hawks to the Class 4A state title on Saturday, was named the Associated Press player of the year for Minnesota this week.
The 6-foot-9, 250-pound forward averaged 22 points per game for Chaska this year, and could fill the shoes of last year's award-winner, Kris Humprhies, the outstanding Gopher freshman from Hopkins, Minn., who could be headed to the NBA after one season on campus.
Other recent winners who've worn the Maroon and Gold include Humphries, Rick Rickert and Adam Boone. Unlike those three, however, Tollackson made the Gophers his first choice and will begin his college career in Minnesota.
