Spurlin, Jackson win boys regional awards

Ethan Spurlin and Jeff Jackson of Lincoln County have been voted the 12th Region player and coach of the year by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches.

Spurlin was the area’s leading scorer with about 20 points per game, and he led Lincoln in rebounds (7) and assists (4) as well. His award comes with an automatic invitation to the Kentucky all-star tryouts next month.

Jackson led the Patriots to a 20-10 record that included their second straight 45th District championship. They reached the regional semifinals before losing to McCreary Central.

The two will receive their awards Friday at the Boys Sweet Sixteen, along with the other regional winners. Click here for the full list.
