Ganden Gosch of Mankato East (6’4 soph). Excellent all around game for Ganden who made a lot of people take notice. He had ten points, five assists, five boards, and five steals for the young and talented Cougars.
Grant Gunderson Grant Gunderson 6'4" | CG Orono | 2023 State MN of Orono (sr). He’s not a new name to most but because he does so much of the dirty work I feel like he needs to headline this section. His contributions on defense, on the glass (nine boards), and moving the basketball were all important to Orono getting a two point win. Grant is the guy that steps in for the help defense, takes the charge, makes the extra pass and helps his team win.
Caleb Jannsen of Stewartville (jr). Caleb is a 6 foot 4 starter that made every attempt he took today on his way to nine points for the game. He’s been a solid role player for Stewartville that will return along with a lot of what will be considered a veteran line-up.
Chase Pemberton Chase Pemberton 6'3" | SF Andover | 2024 MN of Andover (jr). A 6’3 wing for Andover that hit three threes for the Huskies and scored nine points a game for the season. I could definitely see Chase taking a nice jump heading into his senior season as a go to shooter.
Pj Pounds Pj Pounds 6'7" | SF Delasalle | 2023 MN of DeLaSalle (sr). Pounds likely played his best game as an Islander today scoring 20 points when his team needed offensive production. Scored on 9 of 12 attempts for the game.
Ben Shaffer Ben Shaffer 5'11" | PG Wayzata | 2024 State MN of Wayzaya (jr). Looking for that next Wayzata guard who plays a steady game and impacts the Trojans on both ends next year? I give you Ben! He knocked out a pair of threes today and scored 12 points on 5 of 7 shooting. Ben has been a key reserve all year and will have a bigger role next season.
Jaxon Shoenrock Jaxon Shoenrock 6'4" | SF Alexandria | 2023 MN of Alexandria (sr). A 6’2 spot up shooter, high level defender, and all around intelligent player. Shoenrock was a pest on defense getting several deflections, five steals and forcing all around many turnovers. Also scored four times and had five assists.
