Broadus, a quicksilver 5-foot-11 guard, thrilled fans with his explosive moves and high-flying act. More important, his inspiring play helped the Trojans go 10-0 in the OIA Western Division.
After averaging 16.4 points per game, Broadus was voted OIA West Player of the Year by division coaches.
"Off the dribble or one-on-one in the open floor, I don't think anyone can match his quickness," Mililani coach Mike Coito said.
Broadus was the only Mililani player named to the West's All-Star first team. The other first-team selections are 'Aiea forward Lamont Williams, Waipahu forward Maurice Daniels, Radford forward Kula Tanuvasa and Leilehua center Derrick Thomas.
Williams, a 6-2 senior, averaged 13.7 points per game and was similar to Broadus in his ability to take over in crucial situations.
Daniels, a 5-10 senior, averaged 12.9 points per game. Tanuvasa, a 6-1 senior, had a 12.8 ppg average. Thomas, a 6-3 senior, averaged 11.6 ppg. All three helped lead their respective teams to playoff berths.
Coito was named Coach of the Year.
