Aaron Baune is a 6’6 versatile power forward that looks to work the ball inside out. He is productive on the post and also with the outside shot. Baune can find his shot anywhere and has a high basketball IQ. Baune is a strong finisher from the paint while driving or posting up, also a consistent shooter from midrange and 3 point land. This year he will be the #1 guy for the McMinnville Grizzlies.

Baune had a solid junior year receiving 1st team all league honors and found him and his team in the playoffs and lost first round. This year he looks to dominate the Greater Valley Conference.

“I want to go deep into the playoffs, and be a top team in our league and even in the state. We have a good team we just need to put it all together I believe my team and I can do it.” Baune is excited to start this season. One of his many goals for this year is returning to first team All-GVC. During this offseason Baune has been playing with Elite 24.
