With an early season match-up between the Davies Eagles and Shanely Deacons taking place this last Tuesday, I was very eager to see how things would unfold. Would Shanley’s top guys be able to pull off the upset, or would the abundance of talent that the Eagles posses just be too much to handle. Well, it turns out that the latter of the two would be the outcome. After walking out of that gym, I knew that coach Bart Manson had one of the best teams in the state on his hands, and he knew just how to play to their strengths.

Ian is one of the best guards in all of North Dakota, and in the game on Tuesday he showed us why. With an array of skilled and tough finishes including a dunk, impressive court vision, gritty on-ball defense, and a crafty mid range game, the Davies senior poses a threat to any team in the conference. When its all said and done, don't be surprised if this kid is named the Eastern Dakota Conference Player of the Year
