Four named to all-state first team

A banner season by Pinellas County teams is reaping a plenitude of postseason honors. This week, four players were named first-team all-state -- Indian Rocks Christian's Gabe McMillen (Class A), Lakewood's Marcus Morrison and Kevin Dorsey (4A), and Largo's Billy McDade (5A).

The recognition comes after three teams -- Boca Ciega, Lakewood and Indian Rocks -- advanced to the state final four. Only Broward County sent as many teams.

McMillen, a junior, led the county in scoring with 26 points a game and took Indian Rocks to its first state semifinals appearance. He scored 21 points in the state tournament, earning all-tournament honors.

With more than 2,000 career points, McMillen is poised to become the county's all-time leading scorer next season.

Morrison, the county's most exciting player, and Dorsey, perhaps the best, led Lakewood to the school's fifth final four and first state championship. The Spartans went 33-2 and both seniors were named to the all-tournament team. McDade, a New Orleans signee, led Largo with 22 points and nine rebounds a game as a 6-10 small forward. Showing great range, McDade kept the Packers atop the Class 5A state poll for most of the season before an upset loss to Clearwater in the district semifinals.
