Girls Thoughts:

How good is the Twin Lakes Conference this year? Manson NWW, Newell-Fonda, South Central Calhoun, Storm Lake St. Marys and Pocahontas Area? That is an unreal girls basketball conference this year. 

Harlan is head and shoulders about the rest in Class 4A, but don’t be fooled by Cedar Rapids Xavier and Davenport Assumptions records. 

Dike-New Hartford suffered their first loss of the season to Crestwood on Saturday. I was very impressed with both teams. 2A from top to bottom is so loaded with talent this year.

Even with graduating 3 starters, Western Christian is still averaging 77 points a game.

Burlington, Notre Dame is unbeaten in 1A and are winning by an average of 50 points per game …that is serious

Boys Thoughts:

Sioux City North drops to #3 after falling to Omaha South before Christmas, Iowa City West vaults to #1. West, Bett and North are most likely the 3 best teams in the state regardless of class. Harlan could probably compete too.

Van Meter at 10-0 not in top 10 in 2A, nothing against them, but there was no movement in 2A. Cascade at #10 is probably a little bit low. They will continue to climb as the year goes on.

Iowa Falls-Alden senior Casey Schlatter continues to lead the state in scoring at 36 ppg. Had 41 Friday night in a loss to Humboldt.

Jeremy Deemer of Lamoni leads the state in rebounding with 17 boards a game…..he also averages 25 ppg. Talk about being active

Thats all for this week, take care and thanks for reading.
