Trevor Boge, North Linn (2019)
13.7 points (66.7 FG%, 71.4 3FG%), 6.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals, 2.0 blocks
Jake Hilmer was tremendous last week, but North Linn was aided big by Boge’s performances in all three games. He was active on both sides of the ball, and extremely efficient shooting the rock. In the title game, he scored 11 first quarter points to catalyze what would become a 19-point win over Boyden-Hull in the 2A title game. Boge was among the 2A field’s leaders in nearly every conceivable statistical category.
Jack Campbell, Cedar Falls (2019)
11.0 points (86.7 FG%), 5.7 rebounds
The future Iowa Hawkeye linebacker was an absolute nightmare for opponents down in the paint last week. His great length and strength make him hard enough to handle, but he paired some added basketball skill this season that rendered him nearly unstoppable. Campbell was 13-15 from the floor in Cedar Falls’ three wins. He was 7-8 from the floor against Sioux City East in the quarterfinals; he went for 16 points and 10 rebounds in that win.
Harouna Sissoko, Grand View Christian (2019)
12.3 points (40 3FG%), 6.7 rebounds, 1.7 steals
Sissoko may have been a slight snub from the media’s all-tournament team, but as the leading scorer for the state 1A champs, we thought it necessary he make an appearance on this list. Sissoko added some flare last week with a couple rim-rattling jams in the 1A title game, and also shot the ball well from deep, making three of his five 3s in the Thunder’s three wins. He was also among the 1A field’s leaders in rebounding and steals.
Ryan Schmitt, Van Meter (2019)
11.0 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.7 blocks
The 6’9 Van Meter big-man was the only guy in the 2A field to average a double-double last week, and one of just three guys, regardless of class, to do it. He helped Van Meter to its first-ever state tourney win after while going for 11 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks against Dike-New Hartford. He was even better in the semifinals, helping to keep Van Meter close against eventual champs North Linn while going for 10 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks.
Keyton Moser, Boyden-Hull (2020)
11.0 points (65 FG%, 60 3FG%), 6.0 rebounds
Moser was especially good during a Boyden-Hull semifnal win against South Hamilton when he went 7-7 from the floor 2-2 from deep. He scored a team-high 19 points in that one, and the Comets would need nearly all of them in the narrow 62-59 win. Only a junior, Moser averaged 12.2 points per game this season for the runner-up Comets. He projects to have a big-time senior season next winter.
