A year after helping Detroit Pershing win the Class A state championship, Appling is the 30th recipient of the Hal Schram Mr. Basketball award, given annually to state state’s top senior by the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan, in conjunction with the Free Press. [ . . . ] A year ago Appling’s teammate, Derrick Nix, now a freshman at Michigan State, won the award. This is the first time since Lansing Eastern’s Sam Vincent (1982) and Robert Henderson (1982) won the first two Mr. Basketball awards that a school had consecutive winners. [ . . . ] The 6-2 Appling received 328 first-place votes, more than double the number received by Zeigler (114), and was named on 507 of the 646 ballots cast.

Appling is a hell of a player. I would call him a combo guard because even though he has a scorer’s mentality, he needs the ball in his hands. He hit a couple three pointers but he can really do his damage driving the lane. His best move of the night was an inside-out dribble in transition that led to a smooth layup. Appling certainly doesn’t look big but he’s strong going to the hole and can finish with contact. To Appling’s credit, Country Day was in a zone for much of the game which I assume was to attempt to minimize the damage that Appling could create. Appling was matched up with McCallum for most of the game and looks to be a terrific defender, something that will fit in perfectly in East Lansing. He ripped McCallum twice in the fourth quarter, including on a fast break.
