NEW YORK, NY -- Matt Ryan earned the state's top basketball honor from the Basketball Coaches Association of New York.
Ryan, the Iona Prep wing heading to Notre Dame in the fall, was selected Mr. New York Basketball.
The BCANY made the announcement Thursday morning. The selection process included voting for seniors by BCANY and media members as well as committee deliberations.
Ryan missed most of his junior season due to a hip injury that required surgery. After returning to full strength late in the summer, he helped Iona Prep to its first Archdiocesan AA championship game in school history. The season ended with a 50-48 loss to Xaverian on March 10.
Ryan was selected for his award over fellow finalists Jessie Govan of Wings Academy, Kinnon LaRose of Ogdensburg Free Academy and Jordan Roland of Westhill.
Isaiah Whitehead of Abraham Lincoln was the 2014 Mr. New York Basketball award winner.
