MILWAUKEE (AP) - Diamond Stone helped set the standard for basketball excellence at Whitefish Bay Dominican.

With the 6-foot-10 center leading the way, the Green Knights became only the second program in state basketball history to win four straight titles.

Here's one more distinction for Stone before he goes to Maryland to play college ball: the 6-foot-10 center has been named The Associated Press player of the year in Wisconsin.

Stone averaged 24.6 points and 11.8 rebounds a game. He still had substantial competition for the honor.

Rice Lake's Henry Ellenson was also considered. The standout senior is staying in state to play at Marquette this fall.

Scott Anderson of Stevens Point is the AP coach of the year after the school won its first state title since 1994.
