Jaysean Paige, 2011 boys hoops POY for Jamestown, headed to top JC Southern Idaho

Jaysean Paige, who starred in Western New York before moving to Kentucky for his senior season, is headed to the College of Southern Idaho, according to the Times-News of Twin Falls, Idaho. 

Paige was The Buffalo News Player of the Year in boys basketball in 2011 after a season in which he led Jamestown to the Class AA state championship game. He transferred to Perry County Central in Hazard, Ky., late last summer.

The College of Southern Idaho is a top-flight junior college which won the National Junior College Athletic Association Division I championship in 2011; it lost in the first round this year. The men's basketball home page features stories on four players who are going on to play Division I next season. In the final NJCAA Division I poll of the season, held before the postseason, Southern Idaho was No. 4 in the country.
