Big Spring standout guard Luke Adams has been named District 5-3A's Most Valuable Player.

Adams' honor is the biggest for Big Spring as 5-3A's all-district boys' basketball selections were announced today.

Including Adams, the Steers had six players receive honors. Sophomore big man Chazzell Robinson was named Newcomer of the Year. Senior guard Tristian Clay made first team all-district, Mike Menefield and Marc Segundo made the second team and Devante Lloyd earned an honorable mention selection.

Adams was the Steers' go-to player all season, often putting up 20, 30 and even 40-point games. The senior was deadly from the 3-point line and solid from the free-throw line.

BSHS head coach Cliff Thompson often described Clay as the vocal leader of his team. Clay, along with Segundo, were key to the Steers' success with their ability to torch teams with their shooting.

Robinson and Lloyd were both a force in the paint defensively and it wasn't a rare sight to see either of them block shots and grab rebounds.

The Steers,under a first-year coach in Thompson, reached the area round of the Class 3A playoffs after finishing second in the district behind Abilene Wylie.
