Noah Hart, 6’3 PG (Waukee)

14.0 PPG, 5.7 APG, 3.7 RPG

This sharp-passing Warriors junior had a bit of a coming out party last week. We at Prep Hoops Iowa certainly knew what the heady floor-general was capable of, and now a lot more people have the idea. He led Waukee in scoring and assists, and is a big reason why they were able to come away with a third-place finish.

 

Seybian Sims, 6’6 PF (Iowa City West)

11.3 PPG, 6.0 RPG

Sims was really good throughout the week, and his ability to finish was among the best in the field. The Trojans’ second-leading scorer and top rebounder last week, Sims certainly looks like a scholarship-level basketball player. It might be that he takes the JuCo route to get there, though.

 

Matthew Mims, 5’11 PG (Cedar Rapids Xavier)

21.0 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 4.7 APG

After a tremendous and plain dominant performance against Marion in the quarterfinals (32 points), Mims’ shooting was a bit off the next two games. Still, he was the leading scorer in the 3A tourney; and although he wasn’t able to get the three-peat, his legacy as a legendary Saints point guard is well-preserved after two state titles and another third-place finish.

 

Alec Oberhauser, 6’5 G (Aplington-Parkersburg)

15.7 PPG, 8.3 RPG, 5.0 APG, 3.0 SPG, 2.7 BPG

Throughout the regular season, Oberhauser was known for being a big, do-it-all guard for the Falcons, that’s exactly what he was last week at Wells Fargo Arena. He played with a certain swagger, and had more fun than maybe anyone at the tourney. That loose and confident style of play led to beaucoop production. He’ll be taking his talents to Des Moines NAIA Grand View next fall.

 

Grant DeMeulanaere, 6′ PG (Grand View Christian)

19.3 PPG, 3.0 APG, 1.3 SPG

It was a roller-coaster of a week for the eventual two-time state champ, DeMeulenaere. It started with a couple rough shooting performances, and the second one, almost resulted in a loss. But instead, Grant D got hot when his team needed him most during the semifinal come-from-behind win over St. Mary’s. And in a much-anticipate final vs. North Linn, he was very good while leading his team with 21 points.
