Most outstanding player: Emarion Ellis Emarion Ellis 6'4" | SF Assumption | 2021 State #141 Nation IA , Assumption (2021)
Stats: 29.0 points, 47.5 FG%, 40.9 3P%, 78.6 FT%, 7.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.5 blocks, 4.5 steals

Ellis wasn’t named the captain of the all-tournament team (that honor went to Nelson), but the Texas signee was the best player in the 3A field last week. He showcased a smooth jumper that looked much better than the 25.8% from 3 he shot during the regular season, with range well beyond the high school line. He was great in both games, putting up 25 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists in the quarterfinal win over Dallas Center-Grimes and exploding for 33 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 steals in the loss to Ballard in the semifinals. His 9 made 3-pointers led all four classes and he played just two games.

Nelson led the Dutch in scoring during the week and was pretty consistent, going for 18 points and 5 rebounds in the quarters, 13 points
