For the first time in its school’s history, Port Huron Northern is home to Mr. Basketball.  On Monday, March 20th, Tyler Jamison was named the 43rd recipient of the Hal Schram Mr. Basketball Award which recognizes the top boy’s basketball player in the state of Michigan.

Jamison, a senior, beat out 4 other candidates to earn the honor.  This season he averaged 26.7 points, 11.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 3.3 steals per game.  The Huskies finished with a Macomb Area Conference White Division championship, and he has been named the league MVP.  Port Huron Northern lost in the district final on their home court to Macomb Dakota, where cougars head coach Paul Tocco referred to Jamison as “the best player I’ve ever seen in high school basketball.”  He finished that game with 46 points in the loss.

“I’d like to thank our community, the Blue Water Area, Port Huron, and St. Clair County,” said Jamison.  “(We have some of the greatest fans in the world.  They’re just amazing.  I really believe that we have the best fans in the state.  None of this would’ve been possible without them either.”

  Tyler is coached by his father Brian, who was elated to see his son win this award.  “(To see him win Mr. Basketball) goes beyond my wildest dreams,” said Jamison.  “It’s great for our school, our city, and our area.  This means a ton to (our family and community).” Tyler Jamison, who will play college basketball next season at Fairleigh Dickinson University, is the first Macomb Area Conference player to win the award since Romeo Weems, from New Haven High School won it in 2019.  Fairleigh Dickinson University’s basketball team just became the second #16 seed to upset a #1 seed when they defeated Purdue 63-58 on March 17, 2023.
