    AHS in the Dance

    Not sure what the enrollment is for Ames High, but am guessing there aren't too many high schools of its size that can claim to have 4 alumni still participating in the Big Dance.

    Re: AHS in the Dance

    I think it is more impressive that AHS is a public shool and not a prep school known for having a great basketball team.

    It really goes to show how talented that high school team was

    This. Prep schools like Brewster always have several guys dancing (off the top of my head Barton, T Robinson, Ejim, and I think Negedu was at New Mexico) but it's really impressivve for a public school to compete numbers-wise.

    Yes, public and in a small town. Compare that with DC, NYC, etc where you probably have b-ball magnet schools public and private that pull from a very large population....

    With two AA caliber players and two other D1 players (isn't there that kid at Lipscomb) I think it's a pretty safe bet that was the most talented public high school team in the nation. Even at massive public high schools I doubt there are often two AAs and two other D1 players on a roster.

    Think AHS was at about 1200 students back when I went there.
    Always nice to hear Little Cyclones doing great things

    It's a huge advantage having a major university in town though obviously. Fred, Doug, Harrison and Bubu are all ISU related and that's the only reason they were only in Ames because of it.

    Isn't that true of any school near a major employer, though? Maybe with the exception of Doug, who came to Ames specifically as the son of a basketball coach (and was therefore more likely to be a good player) but that happens at the high school level just as much. That's how Nick Collison ended up in Iowa Falls.
