The Teams


Ames (18-4): The Little Cyclones are an elite defensive team, allowing just 38.7 points a game last season despite playing in the loaded CIML. Three of their top four scorers return, and they add a talented newcomer to the lineup. They’ll be led by future Iowa State guard Tamin Lipsey Tamin Lipsey 6'1" | PG Ames | 2022 State #163 Nation IA (16.3 points, 5.0 assists), a dynamic and physical two-way guard who showed no ill-effects of an ACL injury that caused him to miss his entire sophomore year, picking up right where he left off by dominating on both ends of the floor. He’s one of the best on-ball defenders in the state, and he’s electric offensively with his ability to play with pace, get to the rim, or knock down 3s. Senior forward Trevion Labeaux Trevion Labeaux 6'3" | SF Ames | 2022 State IA (11.5) got off to a bit of a slow start following his transfer from Waterloo East, but came on late last year in a big way, showing why he’s so highly regarded in the 2022 class. He’s an athletic freak who can defend multiple positions, rebound at a high level, and score efficiently around the rim.
