Week 3 saw the Class A city schools in Lincoln open up their seasons, while other schools in the area continued the early stages of the new high school season. Here are some Lincoln area prospects whose performances stood out during the week’s action. 

Sam Hoiberg Sam Hoiberg 6'0" | PG Lincoln Pius X | 2021 State NE - 6’0 Senior Guard/Lincoln Pius X

Senior guard Sam Hoiberg Sam Hoiberg 6'0" | PG Lincoln Pius X | 2021 State NE led the way for Pius in the first two games of their season against Lincoln North Star and Gretna. Against North Star, Hoiberg had a game-high 19 points that came on 8-12 shooting from the field, which included 3-6 from 3 point range. He also had 5 rebounds and two steals against the Navigators. Against Gretna, he had 13 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 steals. The two biggest moments of that game however were his go-ahead 3 point make with 26 seconds left and 2 made free throws to seal the win for Pius. Hoiberg plays smart and has a very quick release on his jump shot, he also isn’t afraid to put his head down and look to finish through contact at the rim.
