Manny Austin, 6'1 G, Des Moines Hoover -- 15.6 ppg (50.5 FG%), 2.0 spg 

Currently checking in as PHIA's 9th-ranked 2021, Austin is justifying the high-ranking with a stellar sophomore season. The Huskies are a mildly disappointing 6-3 at the break, and will rely heavily on Austin to get them back to elite status in the second half of the season. 

 

 

Michael Duax, 6'5 G, Dubuque Hempstead -- 14.9 ppg (54 FG%), 2.6 apg, 2.6 spg, 6.7 rpg

There's a strong case to be made that no sophomore in Iowa is having a better season than Duax. Iowa's 6th-ranked 2021 is leading the Hempstead in scoring, assists, steals and rebounds. 

 

 

Dylan Johnson, 6'6 SF, Epworth, Western Dubuque -- 12.1 ppg (50 FG%), 1.7 spg

A big and versatile forward, we came away very impressed with Johnson last summer while he was playing with Martin Brothers 15U. He's doing a nice job this season of proving he's a top-20 prospect in Iowa's 2021 class.
