LEXINGTON — A good three months after season’s end, the Associated Press has finally released the All-state basketball teams.

Mercer County High School earned three of four individual basketball awards as Seygan Robins and Trevon Faulkner were named Kentucky Girls and Boys Players of the Year respectively by members of The Associated Press. Chris Souder is girls Coach of the Year after guiding the powerhouse Titans to their second consecutive Sweet 16 championship.

Scott County’s Billy Hicks, whose Cardinals (37-2) reached the Sweet 16 final before falling to Covington Catholic, is boys Coach of the Year.

Robins, a 5-foot-9 guard, had more than 2,500 points, 800 assists and 500 steals in her career. She averaged 12.5 points during the Sweet 16 and repeated as Most Valuable Player after Mercer County (36-3) routed Mercy 74-34 in the championship. Robins will play for Louisville.

Faulkner, 6-4 and 180 pounds, ranked ninth in state scoring at 26.5 points per game as Mercer County (27-6) reached the Region 12 championship. An AP first team all-state selection in football, he will play basketball at Northern Kentucky.
