Volcano Vista's Kenyon Aguino has been named New Mexico's Gatorade Boys Basketball Player of the Year.

The 6-foot-7, 200-pound sophomore forward who attended Santa Fe Indian School in junior high led the Hawks to their second straight Class 5A state championship last weekend. In the last two years he has helped the team win 58 of its 59 games.

He averaged 19 points, nine rebounds and three assists per game this season, establishing himself as one of the best underclassmen the state has seen at the big-school level in several years.
