Preseason Player of the Year: 2023(Indianola)
The top returning scorer and rebounder in the conference, Kingery is a versatile wing who can dominate games on both ends of the floor. He’s the best player on the best team in the conference, and the top uncommitted player remaining in the 2023 class.
2023(Indianola): 18.7 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.6 steals, 51.8 FG%
A dominant three-level scorer who can fill it up efficiently and in a hurry, Kingery is a 6-5 wing with a silky smooth all-around game. He can take defenders off the bounce, pull up and drain 3s in their faces, or get good looks with off-ball movement. Also a solid defender with great length, he can control games on both ends.
2024(Norwalk): 13.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.0 steals, 84.8 FT%
A high IQ player with a great feel for the game, Born is a three-level scoring threat who also led the Warriors in assists last season as a sophomore. He has good size and uses that size to his advantage, taking smaller defenders down onto the block for buckets in addition to his ability to take bigger defenders off the bounce.
2023(Indianola): 11.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.6 steals, 43.0 3P%, 85.4 FT%
Drea transferred from Ankeny before the start of last season and enjoyed a really strong junior year with the Indians. A knockdown shooter who can play both with and without the ball in his hands, look for his assist totals to go up this year following the graduation of Cooper Nailor.
2023(Newton): 9.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists
Newton had a very balanced attack last season, so Bauer’s scoring numbers aren’t going to blow you away, but he’s a good perimeter shooter who can get scorching hot from deep and carry the Cardinals for stretches offensively. His ability to move without the ball in his hands and find spaces in the defense is huge for a Newton team that has a number of quality shooting options.
2023(Norwalk): 12.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.8 steals, 62.9 FG%
Carlson had a breakout junior year, finishing second on the Warriors in scoring while leading the team in assists. An efficient scorer who does most of his damage inside the paint, he does a great job crashing the glass on both ends of the floor. He’s a good athlete with excellent hands.
