Nick Fuller is a wanted man.


The Sun Prairie High junior is sorting through a stack of scholarship offers to play Division I basketball. The 6-foot-6 swingman is also the unanimous choice as the Player of the Year in the Big Eight Conference.


Fuller is joined on the first team by Madison La Follette senior Matt Hunter, Verona senior Bryan Dalton, Madison East senior Rudy Bentley and Middleton senior Eric Hagstrom. La Follette’s Reggie Williams, who led the Lancers to a surprising fourth-place finish in the conference, is the Coach of the Year.


In leading Sun Prairie to an 18-7 season, Fuller averaged 23.6 points per game. He has DI offers from UW-Milwaukee, Creighton, Drake, Northern Iowa and Toledo, with Wisconsin also showing strong interest.


Janesville Parker senior Andrew Somerville and Janesville Craig senior Cameron Wright were named to the third team.


Madison Memorial’s Junior Lomomba, a Cleveland State recruit and first-team selection a year ago, served a one-game suspension this season for an athletic code violation, and under Big Eight by-laws, is not eligible to be nominated for postseason honors.
