runaway favorite in the Metro Classic, perhaps in all of Division 3.  St. Catherine’s was 25-0 last season and only had two games within single digits.  The top three scorers -- Tyrese HunterTyreseHunter5'11" | PGRacine St. Catherine's | 2021State#160NationWI, , and  Jameer BarkerJameerBarker6'1" | SGRacine St. Catherine's | 2021StateWI are all back for their senior seasons. 

TOP CONTENDER - THE PRAIRIE SCHOOL

The Hawks had an up and down year, but reload in a big way behind their top five scorers from last season.  Do-it-all guard/wing Antuan NesbittAntuanNesbitt6'3" | SFThe Prairie School | 2021StateWI will have a strong and experienced supporting cast, featuring Ashe OglesbyAsheOglesby6'6" | PFThe Prairie School | 2023StateWI, Kody KreklingKodyKrekling6'3" | SGThe Prairie School | 2021StateWI, Jacob Fallico, and Elijah LambertElijahLambert6'4" | SFRacine St. Catherine's | 2020StateWI, the Angels may not be better than last season, but they’re still a [player_tooltip player_id="994508" first="Jameer" last="Barker"] runaway favorite in the Metro Classic, perhaps in all of Division 3.  St. Catherine’s was 25-0 last season and only had two games within single digits.  The top three scorers -- Tyrese HunterTyreseHunter5'11" | PGRacine St. Catherine's | 2021State#160NationWI, Kamari McGeeKamariMcGee5'10" | PGRacine St. Catherine's | 2021StateWI, and  Jameer BarkerJameerBarker6'1" | SGRacine St. Catherine's | 2021StateWI are all back for their senior seasons.  TOP CONTENDER - THE PRAIRIE SCHOOL The Hawks had an up and down year, but reload in a big way behind their top five scorers from last season.  Do-it-all guard/wing Antuan NesbittAntuanNesbitt6'3" | SFThe Prairie School | 2021StateWI will have a strong and experienced supporting cast, featuring Ashe OglesbyAsheOglesby6'6" | PFThe Prairie School | 2023StateWI, Kody KreklingKodyKrekling6'3" | SGThe Prairie School | 2021StateWI, Jacob Fallico, and Asanjai HunterAsanjaiHunter5'11" | PGThe Prairie School | 2023StateWI. DARK HORSE -  DOMINICAN  The Knights only had two league losses last season, both to St. Catherine’s. Coming off a 20-win season, Dominican returns  Delone AustinDeloneAustin6'1" | CGDominican | 2021StateWI and Ronald KirkRonaldKirk6'4" | SFDominican | 2021StateWI.  Dominican is losing a lot of depth from 2019-20, including Alex  Antetokounmpo and Ben JelacicBenJelacic6'4" | PFDominican | 2020StateWI, but if sophomore Taylor SmithTaylorSmith6'4" | SFMartin Luther | 2023StateWI can  emerge, they’ll be fighting for a top spot in the league once again.    PRESEASON FIRST-TEAM ALL-CONFERENCE G Micah CauseyMicahCausey5'9" | PGSt. Thomas More | 2022StateWI - Jr. - St. Thomas More G Tyrese HunterTyreseHunter5'11" | PGRacine St. Catherine's | 2021State#160NationWI - Sr. - Racine St. Catherine’s G Kamari McGeeKamariMcGee5'10" | PGRacine St. Catherine's | 2021StateWI - Sr. -  Racine St. Catherine’s G  Jameer BarkerJameerBarker6'1" | SGRacine St. Catherine's | 2021StateWI - Sr. - Racine St. Catherine’s G Antuan NesbittAntuanNesbitt6'3" | SFThe Prairie School | 2021StateWI - Sr. - The Prairie School G Andrew AliaAndrewAlia6'2" | SGKenosha St. Joseph | 2022StateWI - Jr. - Kenosha St. Joseph SECOND TEAM G Brady Wilkes - Sr. - Racine Lutheran G Demerius ShakurDemeriusShakur6'2" | CGMartin Luther | 2023StateWI - So. - Martin Luther G Delone AustinDeloneAustin6'1" | CGDominican | 2021StateWI - Sr. - Dominican W Ronald KirkRonaldKirk6'4" | SFDominican | 2021StateWI - Sr. - Dominican W Quentin BoltonQuentinBolton6'5" | SFShoreland Lutheran | 2021StateWI - Sr. -  Shoreland Lutheran F Ashe OglesbyAsheOglesby6'6" | PFThe Prairie School | 2023StateWI - So. -  The Prairie School   PLAYER OF THE YEAR - TYRESE HUNTER Hunter led the conference in scoring last season at 21.3 ppg. The Iowa State commit is one of the most explosive athletes in the state.  The reigning Metro Classic Player of the Year, Hunter led the Angels to a perfect 25-0 mark last season. BREAKOUT PLAYER - RONALD KIRK [player_tooltip player_id="981038" first="Demerius" last="Shakur"] Kirk finished fourth on Dominican in scoring as a junior. Wouldn’t be surprised if he led the way in 2020-21.  A strong, athletic slasher who just doesn’t get denied on his way to the rim, Kirk put up 11.0 points and 4.8 rebounds per game last season.  If Kirk can shoot the ball consistently from the outside, he’s going to be a handful for defenders to match up with that 6-foot-5 frame. SURPRISE PLAYER -  DEMERIUS SHAKUR Shakur had a strong freshman season, averaging 5.8 points and 2.6 assists per game. Coming off a fantastic summer, Shakur is a terrific pick n’ roll guard who can get downhill, make plays for others, and just carve up the defense. With Martin Luther losing a couple of key seniors, Shakur could get the keys to the car during his sophomore campaign.
