Player of the Year: G Joe Smoldt (Gladbrook-Reinbeck) — 18.0 points, 5.1 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 2.6 steals
The lead guard led the only undefeated team in the state to the title in Class 1A, leading the Rebels in points, assists and steals, and doing so efficiently – he shot over 52% from the floor and nearly 43% from behind the arc.
G Connor McCaffery (Iowa City West) — 13.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.1 assists
The Iowa commit is our top ranked player in the 2017 class. He combines great size with an off-the-charts basketball IQ, plus-court vision and passing and his perimeter shot improved drastically. Playing on a loaded West team kept his stats down a bit, but he still put up solid numbers and has established himself as one of the state's premier players.
G Devontae Lane (Iowa City West) — 13.0 points, 2.9 steals, 53.0 FG%
After being a role player as a freshman, Lane stepped his game up in a big way as a sophomore. He ranked 3rd in Class 4A in steals and scored at an efficient clip. A compact, strong guard, he's at his best when he's getting to the rim and using his strength to finish through contact. He's already getting Division I looks, and his recruitment will explode on the grassroots circuit this summer.
G Jay Small (Hinton) — 22.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.9 steals
After a solid summer playing with Omaha Elite, Small picked up where he left off, leading Hinton in nearly every category. The second highest scoring sophomore in the state, he's proven himself as a capable threat from anywhere on the court.
C Austin Phyfe (Waverly-Shell Rock) — 13.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.9 blocks, 65.4 FG%
The young big man will be the face of the Go-Hawks moving forward following Jake Velky's graduation. He's got great hands, footwork and touch around the rim and just keeps improving his all-around skill set. There are plenty of Division I suitors waiting in the wings of the talented young lefty.
G Trey Tucker (Greene County) — 22.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.7 steals
Tucker was the highest scoring sophomore in the state and also stood out on the defensive end, swiping 2.7 steals a game. The versatile guard is capable of lighting up the scoreboard at any given time.
G Levi Jungling (Pella Christian) — 16.7 points, 4.1 assists, 2.3 steals
The electric point guard isn't blessed with great size, but he's got the ability to dominate the game in a number of ways. He's got a good handle, plays with pace and can stretch the defense with his shot. A true playmaking guard.
G Parker Lange (Storm Lake) — 17.5 points, 42.4 3FG%
The young guard proved to be one of the better perimeter shooters in the state, knocking down 59 3s (2.8 a game) and doing so at a high rate.
F Quinton Curry (West Des Moines Valley) — 12.9 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.0 blocks, 51.9 FG%
Our 5th ranked player in the class, Curry is an efficient offensive weapon on the interior for Valley. The big man has started to add to his arsenal, showing the ability to step away from the paint and knock down mid-range jumpers. If he continues to expand his range, he's got a high ceiling.
F Nathan Karsjens (AGWSR, Ackley) — 16.3 points, 10.7 rebounds, 44.4 3FG%, 52.8 FG%
The lone sophomore to average a double-double, Karsjens led his team in scoring, rebounding, blocks, FG% and 3FG%. A versatile threat who can beat you in a variety of ways.
G Jovonte Squiers (Lone Tree) — 13.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 4.0 steals
Squiers has generated early college interest across multiple levels, in large part due to his stat-stuffing abilities. He's a versatile threat on both ends of the floor who will be looking to have a big summer playing with the Iowa Mavericks.
G Sam Allen (Grinnell) — 11.9 points, 3.5 rebounds, 48 3PM
Allen is the outside portion of Grinnell's talented sophomore inside-out duo. The lanky guard has range well beyond the arc and good size. He's got a big summer coming up with the Barnstormers.
F Cade McKnight (Grinnell) — 12.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 59.7 FG%
The other half of Grinnell's dynamic sophomore duo, McKnight is an efficient offensive player who does a majority of his damage in the paint. He's a strong interior presence with high upside.
F Austin Roetman (Pocahontas Area) — 15.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.3 blocks
Roetman helped lead the Indians to an 18-win season, ranking 2nd on the team in scoring and leading them in rebounding and blocked shots. Another young player with versatility, he's not a great shooter yet, but he has made it enough of a weapon that it must be respected.
F Garrett Franken (Atlantic) — 15.3 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.5 blocks
Franken has developed into a nightly double-double threat, and he can also help protect the rim for Atlantic. He needs to continue to become more efficient with his offensive game, as he shot just 39% from the floor. He's a versatile offensive player, ranking 2nd on the team in assists at 6'7″.
