    Best Iowa High School Basketball Players Ever

    I know some of the best Iowa High School players to come out of the state but I was wondering who everyones starting 5 of all time would be.

    Hinrich
    Hoiberg
    Settles
    LaFrentz
    Collison

    I'm missing a 3G, maybe Oliver could fit that roll.

    Any thoughts?

    Are you asking this based on HS performance, college performance, pro or all the above combined?

    Not a Hawk fan, but I don't see Bobby Hansen on that list. He was more of a 2 guard, but had a good high school, college and pro career.

    Re: Best Iowa High School Basketball Players Ever

    If you are basing it on just HS performance, you may have to include Todd Berkenpas on the list.

    He wasn't so good as a Hawk, though. Kind of like Troy Skinner.

    Ricky Davis is an idiot but a good basketball player.


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    I always enjoyed the line, "Ricky Davis was a future Hawkeye 3 times as long as he was an ACTUAL Hawkeye."

    he committed as a freshmen in HS, then left after one year. Something becoming more and more common.

    I agree with this starting 5 except I would sub Korver in for Settles.

    I was going to say that myself.

    Davis absolutely OWNED the eastern half of the state of Iowa back in high school. If he wasn't such a dolt, perhaps he would have lasted longer than one year at Iowa (rumors were he was going to be ineligible to compete the next year his grades were so bad) and wouldn't have been near the headcase that he currently is in the NBA.
