Lawrence High School standout Nia Irving has been named Maine's Girls Basketball Gatorade Player of the Year for a second straight year.
The 6-foot-1 senior averaged almost 26 PPG and 21 RPG leading her Bulldogs to a 21-1 record and an appearance in the Class A state title game.
Irving is one of three finalists for the Miss Maine Basketball Award. That announcement comes Friday night as part of McDonald's AllStar Weekend.
For her four-year career at Lawrence, Irving scored 1,761 points and 1,206 rebounds. She will play for Boston University next year.
Irving now becomes a candidate for National Gatorade Player of the Year. That award will be announced later this month.
Maine's boys Gatorade Player of the Years will be announced next week.
NOTE: You can hear Nia Irving play in the McDonald's AllStar game Saturday morning when Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket brings you live coverage starting at 10am.
