On Thursday, Lausanne’s Seth Grandberry ’23 was named a finalist for the TSSAA Mr. Basketball award.
The Mr. and Miss Basketball Awards are presented to the top girls and boys in six classifications of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA). After high school head basketball coaches and media members nominate the finalists, a statewide committee of sportswriters select the winners based on performance during the 2022-2023 regular season. Academics and character were also taken into consideration.
“This was certainly a goal of mine,” Grandberry said. “It is an honor to be named as one of the three finalists. To be considered one of the top three players in the state means so much. It is such a blessing.”
Grandberry is averaging 20.8 points per game this season to go with 6 assists per game.
“I am very excited about this for both the school and him,” head coach Marvis Davis said. “Being named as one of the top players says a lot about his character and skills. He is an under-recruited student-athlete, so I am excited to see him get the recognition he deserves.”
The Lynx boast three previous Mr. Basketball winners. Marc Gasol won the award in 2003, with Cam Payne winning it in 2016 and Moussa Cisse bringing home the award in 2020.
The winner will be announced on Monday, March 13 at 5:00 p.m. Eddie Ricks, III of Clarksville Academy and Isaiah West of Goodpasture are the two other finalists for the award.
