FIRST TEAM

Player of the Year: Ashton Hermann Ashton Hermann 6'4" | SG Ballard | 2022 State IA , Ballard (2022)
Stats: 16.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 3.3 steals, 51.4 FG%, 73.3 FT%

Hermann was named a second-team all-state player by the IPSA, something that we certainly disagreed with. An electric guard who impacts the game in a major way on both ends of the floor, he led a Bombers team that was ranked #1 for a majority of the season in scoring and did so at a remarkably efficient clip. He’s primed for a big summer that should see him grab some mid-major offers.

 

Emarion Ellis Emarion Ellis 6'4" | SF Assumption | 2021 State #141 Nation IA , Assumption (2021)
Stats: 17.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.2 blocks, 78.2 FT%

Ellis probably would’ve been our POY if he hadn’t missed 12 games with a wrist injury. The Texas signee really emerged this year as a gifted playmaker, setting up his teammates with excellent passes, showing off his improved court vision. He was outstanding at the state tournament, shooting it much better from 3 than he did throughout the regular season.
