Upper Arlington’s Goodwin selected Mr. Basketball
COLUMBUS – Upper Arlington High School senior Dane Goodwin was named Ohio Mr. Basketball Wednesday by a statewide media panel.
A 6-foot-5 senior, Goodwin averaged 24 points and 10 rebounds for the District finalist Golden Bears. A four-year starter, he set school records for points scored (1,951 points) and rebounds (817).
Goodwin has already signed a letter-of-intent to play at Notre Dame.
