A closer look at the top 10 point guards in the Wisconsin class of 2025 rankings…
Herro didn’t put up big numbers as a sophomore, but Whitnall probably doesn’t make it to state without him — They certainly don’t play in the Division 2 title game. People might disagree with where I have him, but you watch him run the show in the Nike EYBL and how he handles going against athletes — I don’t think there’s another guard in the state that does what he does. Herro has some of the best floor vision in the state, sees things before they happen, and is dynamic in the pick n’ roll. A lanky, 6-foot-2 guard, Herro is going to grow into his body late too and can go get a bucket late in shot clock situations.
Hinson continues to climb. A very cerebral point guard that plays mistake-free basketball, Hinson impacts winning in a lot of ways. He can beat teams as a scorer or a facilitator. A knockdown 3-point shooter that can thrive off the ball, there’s some good combo guard ability. The only reason I don’t list him there — I want Hinson running my team and making decisions. Leading Marshfield to an 18-7 record last season, Hinson averaged 16 points per game while shooting 52 percent from the field, including 48 percent from 3-point range.
Give Griffin the ball and good things happen. Arguably the best open floor passer in the state, Griffin just drops dimes. You don’t know what’s coming as a defender. Griffin can go one-hand, manipulate people with his eyes, and just put a unique touch on the ball to fit it into tight windows or impossible angles. Griffin has drastically improved his ability to attack the rim and shoot from 3-point range, especially under duress. The 6-foot-1 junior has a chance to be an all-around point guard and I don’t think it’s out of the question for him to top this list by his senior season. One of the bigger breakout players in the state last season, Griffin posted 14 points and seven assists per game. More importantly, the Falcons went 23-3 and won a league title under his lead.
You just can’t speed this kid up. He’s got some Kon Knueppel in him the way Daoust just looks like he’s always poised and under control. Not going to wow you athletically, but Daoust is extremely skilled and knows how to score based on the coverage he’s given. Like Hinson, you could list Daoust as a combo guard, but size and athleticism-wise, think he’s better off at the point at the next level. Daoust is a very well-rounded scorer and can hit shots from anywhere. He’s even got a unique post-up game at six feet and can create some problems on the block. Daoust put up a whopping 32 points per game as a sophomore as Southern Door went 22-3 and won their conference.
It’s not about stats with Bolden. If you watch him closely, he knows how to run a team and make everyone around him better. The type of guard teammates love playing with, Bolden is going to get you the ball where you want it and in positions to succeed. Helping get Nicolet to the Division 2 state tournament and a 24-5 overall record, Bolden averaged 12 points, five rebounds, and four assists per game.
Dorris led a loaded Martin Luther team in scoring last season at 17 points per game. A speedy, electric guard, Dorris can not only blow by people to the rim, but he can mix it up as a jump shooter and go isolation. At 5-foot-11, think he’s tougher and stronger around the rim than he gets credit for.
Johnson posted 11 points and three assists per game for River Falls as a sophomore. His brother was one of the state’s premier shooters back in his day, but Johnson is more of a floor general himself. The 6-foot-2 lefty has terrific handles and can get to his spots on the floor. When he needs to score, Johnson can turn to a smooth pull-up mid-range game and can fill it up going to either hand.
This is one of the best kept secrets in the state right now. With Verona losing some key guards from last season, look for Buss to potentially get the keys to the car at the point guard position. The 5-foot-11 junior had a terrific spring and summer on the travel circuit. A high-IQ lead guard with a deep bag of tricks, Buss is one of the most improved players in the state and I’m not sure a lot of people are aware of him yet. If he plays as well in 2023-24 as he did over the summer, I can see him going as high as sixth on this list.
Robinson is the heartbeat of his teams. A kid with a chip on his shoulder, Robinson brings it every possession. Not the biggest, not the most athletic, not the most skilled player on the floor, but nobody will play harder than Robinson. Defensively, Robinson is just a dawg. He gets after people, harasses ball handlers, and creates a lot of havoc. He also gave Racine Park 14 points and four assists per game as a sophomore.
Buboltz averaged 16 points per game as a sophomore in a very good Fox River Classic Conference. North quietly went 20-6 and finished second in that league. Buboltz can impact the game in a variety of ways from the point guard spot. He’s a strong, confident ball handler that likes to create for himself and others. He’ll be a factor scoring from all three levels. He’s also a guy that plays good defense, makes the right play with the basketball, and leads on the floor.
