Preseason Player of the Year: Tyreke Locure, Des Moines North — 2019
Despite some other worthy candidates, this was really a no-brainer. We dare to say that Locure — a South Alabama commit — has already firmly established himself as an Iowa high school hoops legend. He’ll continue to add to that legacy this season while knocking off more and more Iowa high school hoops records.
Tyreke Locure, Des Moines North — 2019
28.1 points, 6.9 assists, 3.9 steals, 5.7 rebounds
The preternatural floor general is headed to South Alabama next season, but will first try and get that elusive state title one last time. With Locure on the floor, anything is possible.
Hosea Treadwell, Des Moines Hoover — 2019
12.0 points, 1.4 steals, 4.0 rebounds
What great strides this sharpshooting guard has made since missing his sophomore season with an ACL injury. He’ll have a monster season with the Huskies, who themselves will be one of the state’s best teams again.
Adam Jackson, Des Moines Hoover — 2019
12.1 points, 1.7 assists, 3.0 rebounds
Part two of a back-court that is certainly one of the best in Iowa, Jackson is a bulldog when he gets into the lane, and is shifty while getting there. He’ll score from all three levels, and will obviously defend, too.
Lino Malual, Des Moines North — 2019
11.3 points, 2.5 assists, 4.8 rebounds
Anyone who attends a North game this season is liable to see some fireworks from the likes of Malual; his best strength is his leaping ability, he’s electric, but he’s able to score it in a multitude of ways as well.
Kenny Quinn, Des Moines Hoover — 2019
4.6 points, 4.3 assists, 2.0 steals, 2.9 rebounds
An absolute bulldog on defense, Quinn will have two final match-ups with Locure this season that will be fun to watch. Offensively, he’s been working to improve and should see his points average increase this season for the Huskies.
Josiah Conkrite, Des Moines Lincoln — 2019
Marcus Edwards, Des Moines Roosevelt — 2019
Malik Allen, Des Moines North — 2021
Gatdoar Bijiek, Des Moines North — 2019
Manny Austin, Des Moines Hoover — 2021
