Substate 1

Lio Aguirre Lio Aguirre 6'3" | SF Ankeny | 2024 State IA

Sioux City West (7-14) at Ankeny (17-4)

One of the state’s most potent and balanced offensive attacks in Ankeny shouldn’t face too much resistance in this one, as Sioux City West ranks 45th (out of 48 4A teams) in scoring defense, allowing 67.2 points a game. The Hawks are averaging 66.8 points a game behind three double-figure scorers in senior Ryan Crandall Ryan Crandall 6'1" | SF Ankeny | 2022 State IA (11.3, 8.5 rebounds), sophomore Lio Aguirre Lio Aguirre 6'3" | SF Ankeny | 2024 State IA (10.7), and junior JJ Kohl JJ Kohl 6'8" | PF Ankeny | 2023 State IA (10.6). Four others average between 6.2 and 9.9 points a game, giving the Hawks seven players they can comfortably look towards to score. Junior point guard Keavian Hayes Keavian Hayes 6'2" | SG Sioux City West | 2023 State IA (17.1) is the catalyst for West, an athletic and quick guard who is efficient from all three levels, while Lamarion Mothershead (11.7) gives them some additional punch on the wing. The Wolverines are athletic enough to stick around for a while, but eventually the overcoming depth and number of options that Ankeny possesses will overtake West as the Hawks cruise into the substate final.
Our pick: Ankeny
