Connor McCaffery (Iowa City West) - 19.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists (Stats thru 1/30)
The Iowa commit is the leading scorer for the state's best team, averaging 19.1 points a game for the Trojans, with shooting splits of 52-40-88. Asked to step into a bit of a different role this season, becoming more of a scorer than facilitator, McCaffery has shined with efficiency. He's on the verge of becoming just the fifth 4A player ever to record 400 career assists, and as long as he is able to help lead West back to the state tournament for the seventh straight season, he should be considered the favorite to take home Mr. Basketball. The voters have generally shown a preference for Iowa commits, and as the only one in the state eligible for the award, that should also give him an upper hand.
