The Teams

BGM (17-6): The Bears lost highly productive guard Noah BeckNoahBeck5'9" | PGBGM | 2020StateIA to graduation. Beck led the team in every major statistical category, so they have a lot of production to replace. The good news is that three of the top five scorers return in Grant Hall (8.3), Jacob Moel (7.1) and Trase Kriegel (6.2), so they do have some experienced players returning. Look for this to be a much more balanced attack this year, and they should remain competitive.

Colfax-Mingo (14-8): The Tigerhawks lost leading scorer Brady BerkeyBradyBerkey6'0" | PGCofax-Mingo | 2020StateIA to graduation, but bring back four players who averaged between 8.4 and 11.8 points a game, so they have a good amount of production returning. Jake Nichols (11.8, 9.8 rebounds) is the leading returnee, a strong, athletic forward who can control the glass on both ends of the floor. David Rague (9.5) will be the team’s primary ball-handling option, while Cole Bracewell (8.6) and Zach Steenhoek (8.4) provide some additional scoring punch. Bracewell is the team’s top perimeter shooting threat. With four key players back, look for C-M to challenge BGM and North Mahaska for second in the division.
