Preseason Player of the Year: 2021 Taurice Grant, Meskwaki Settlement

The Warriors look like they should be the best team in the division again this year, and the 5-10 point guard is a big reason why. He's the league's leading returnee in assists and steals, and he should see his scoring skyrocket following the graduation of Tate Bear, who averaged just under 22 points a game.

 

First Team

2021 Taurice Grant, Meskwaki Settlement (11.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 2.8 steals)

A dynamic two-way player who excels at getting his teammates involved, Grant will be asked to take on more of a scoring role this season for the Warriors following the graduation of Tate Bear. The quick guard should be able to get into the paint for buckets all winter in this league.

2020 Brett Livesay, Collins-Maxwell (14.9 points, 11.1 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 1.3 blocks)

The Spartans won just five games last year, but Livesay was a bright spot, as the only player in the division to average a double-double. With their top six scorers back, they should be improved.

2020 Ryan McLean, North Tama (12.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.0 steals)
