All-Region 6 Team
(2023) |6’2 SG| Bishop Ryan
21-3 record, All-State selection. 21 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 2 apg, 53 FG%, 75 FT%. You could not guard this guy with only one defender. He is a competitor that will do whatever it takes to put his team in a position to win. As a guard, his strength while slashing and finishing was as good as it gets in class B. Feller could drain them from way deep and score from every level on the way to the rim. Brady was a leader for the Lions and a player with great character. He will be greatly missed by the Lions.
(2023) |6’5 SF| Bishop Ryan
21-3 record. He was a versatile and flexible player that could guard multiple positions on defense. Ian could take wings with his athleticism and D-up on the inside with BIGs because of his length and toughness. On offense, Johnson was a jack-of-all-trades that would make the defense pay if they overplayed him. Ian had some impressive games shooting the ball from deep and he was opportunistic slashing to the rim. He was also a productive rebounder. Johnson is a competitor that plays the game with passion. It will be tough to fill Ian’s shoes next season.
(2025) |6’7 PF| Bishop Ryan
21-3 record. 14 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 1.3 apg, 1.2 spg, 1.3 bpg, 64 FG%, 37.5 3FG%. The BIG youngster shot a high percentage this season. Walz was a scary scoring threat with his length, athleticism, and all-around skill. Walz was consistent all year and teams struggled to guard him with single coverage. Minot had a ton of weapons, so opposing teams had to pick their poison. Ramsey’s length and mobility make him an intriguing player. Walz will be one of the premier BIGs in class B next season. I am excited to see him hoop with ND Phemon this spring/summer.
(2025) |6’3 G| Westhope/Newburg
11-11 record, All-State selection. 27.4 ppg, 11.5 rpg, 3.1 apg, 4.2 spg, 1.2 bpg, 45 FG%, 34 3FG%, 71 FT%. He is a super-skilled player that can do it all on the court. Walker is an underrated defender because he is so potent on the offensive end. His length and athleticism give offensive players problems. Braaten is also a smart kid. His rebounding is beyond impressive. Walker is a bucket from every level, his stepback game is sick, and his fadeaway J is next to impossible to stop. Walker showed that he has the ability to completely take over a game. Braaten battled some injuries this season, but he will be fine for AAU hoops. He is going to tear it up again for ND Phenom. Walker is a coachable kid that is always working on his craft. Braaten has a radiant future ahead of him.
(2023) |6’6 PF| Surrey
He is not the easiest player to match up with because of his size, strength, and power. Mayo is a physical BIG that makes plays inside the arc, he can also hit from the outside. Will patrolled the lane to keep opponents away from the Mustang basket. He got after the bourds with his muscle and size. Underclassmen that play down low will be happy that Mayo is graduating!
(2023) |6’5 PF| Rugby
12-10 record. Foster will go down in Panther history as one of the best rebounders to come through the program. He is a tough kid, a hard worker, and has good length. Foster improved his scoring in the past year and his jump shot was very effective. Foster was efficient around the cup and he always shared the rock. Erik was a versatile blue-collar defender. Nobody wanted Foster to be guarding them. Erik had an excellent career and Rugby and he left his fingerprint on the program.
Brody Schneibel (2023) |6’4 F| Rugby
12-10 record. He is a multi-sport athlete and a standout in football, basketball, T&F, and baseball. Brody was All-State in baseball last spring. On the hardwood, Schneibel is a left-handed forward that is big and strong. Schneibel is physical in the lane and he can produce around the basket. Brody could also score from mid-range with jumpers.
(2024) |6’0 G| Bottineau
10-11 record. 24.5 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 4.0 apg, 2.5 spg, 41.5 FG%, 515 points on the season with 144 boards. Haerer is a lean, wiry, and smart lead guard. His skills are top notch and he can shoot the lights out from deep, mid, and short. Haerer is a multidimensional scorer and playmaker. His stats and overall gameplay were easily worthy of being an All-State player. Carson was a stud this past season and will be one of the best guards in ND next year. I saw him play today at Bearstail practice and this kid is the real deal. He will only get better this offseason because he is playing with excellent teammates and he will see stout competition.
(2026) |6’6 F| TGU
10-13 record. 14 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 2 apg, 1.7 bpg, 40 FG%, 36.4 3FG%. Sage and the Titans were a young group that did not win as many games as they would have liked, but Hanson showed some scary potential. Sage had a nice overall season, he has an intriguing skill set and you have to love his length! Hanson can knock them down from deep. He hits them off the bounce and catch. Sage is on his way to becoming a sharpshooter and a playmaker. On defense, Hanson is smart and long. He blocked 10 shots in the last game of the season vs. DLB! Get ready for a big AAU season from Hanson, he will be running with ND Phenom.
(2024) |6’1 G| Mohall-Lansford-Sherwood
13-12 record. Riley is a fundamental player, you can tell that he spends a lot of time with the ball in his hands. He is a strong guard and once he gets to his spots, there is no stopping him. Riley has an impressive spin when attacking the hoop, he fooled many defenders this season with that move. Morlock is tough physically and mentally. Riley scores the rock via slash and with perimeter jumpers. He has an impressive scoring package. Morock is going to be a dude and will put up gaudy numbers next season.
(2023) |6’5 SG| Des Lacs-Burlington
20-8 record, Region Champions, 4th place at State. 13.9 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 1.6 apg, 1.1 spg. Without Olson, the Lakers do not make that magical run to the State Tournament. I really like his 3-point shot, with his length/athleticism, Olson can rise above the defense for a clean shot. He ran the floor like a deer and finished well in transition. The long lefty was also a very good defender for the Lakers.
(2023) |6’9 PF| Des Lacs-Burlington
20-8 record, Region Champions, 4th place at State, All-Tournament Team at State. 19.9 ppg, 11.2 rpg, 3 apg, 1.3 spg, 1.7 bpg. Yale came a long way in the last 2 years after missing his junior season with an injury. All of the hard work and rehab was certainly worth it! Yale was a double-double monster and a headache of a matchup with his size, mobility, and skill. Yale did it all as a 4-level scorer. He drained triples, scored from the high post, finished efficiently at the rim, and he got it done at the FT-line. Yale was a creature on the glass and an impressive rim protector. It was a marvelous season for Mr. Yale!
