Aberdeen Central

Returning Starters. Anthony Bachmeier (G, 12), T.J. Allam (PF, 12), Nick Goeman (PG, 12)

Returning Bench Players. Cannon Hannigan (G, 11), Gabe Swanson (PG, 12),  Cole Bergan (PF, 10)

New Talent. Nathan Rook (PG, 10), Jonah Dohrer (SF, 10)

Trending. Up

Thoughts.  This is a more talented team than we thought when we put up our initial top 10 for Class AA.  You have an excellent backcourt in Bachmeier, Hannigan, and Goeman, talent up front in Bergan and Allam, experience, quality youth, and it looks like depth.  We ranked them fourth coming into the year but they could be even better than that.

Brandon Valley

Returning Starters. Spencer Grage (6-5, F, 11), Alex Waltner (6-1, G, 11)

Returning Bench Players.  Carter Klatt (5-10, PG, 11),  Riley Bennett (5-11, G, 12), Walter Kolbeck (6-0, SG, 11)

New Talent. Zach Scholten (PF, 11), Brandon Larson (6-3, F, 11), Cooper Olthoff (6-5, F, 11)

Trending. Down

Thoughts.  Very good sophomore class of players and they will win games with the group but being around .500 will be tough with few seniors and the top scorers graduating.  Grage and Waltner do have a lot of game experience though.
