Boys Basketball: EA’s Alikakos earns Inter-Ac POY honor

The accomplishments of Nick Alikakos this season were an instrumental part of Episcopal Academy’s surprising run to within a game of a league title. They also earned him plenty of attention from coaches in the Inter-Ac.

The sophomore was named Most Outstanding Player in the league by Inter-Ac coaches, the only EA nod on the first team. The 6-7 forward averaged 19.6 points per game, scoring in double-figures in every game and posting a serious threat for a double-double each time out.

Joining him on the first team are Haverford School senior guard Shawn Alston, the co-player of the year as a sophomore, and Fords forward Lamar Stevens. Through Wednesday’s game for the Fords, who are still alive in the semifinals of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Tournament, Alston is averaging 19.4 ppg while Stevens checks in at 18.3.

The rest of the first is composed of players from three-time defending league champion Germantown Academy, including last year’s MVP Tim Guers.

Haverford School freshman Cameron Reddish (12.8 scoring averaged) is on the second team, the only member of his class to be honored. He’s joined by EA guards Mike Hinckley, Mike Jolaoso and Matt Woods. Hinckley averaged 9.2 ppg, Woods is one of the leading 3-pointer shooters in the county at 66 makes fueling his 10.5 ppg, and Mike Jolaoso averaged 14.2 ppg before missing the Churchmen’s final five games due to academic reasons.
