    Re: Who are the Greatest Iowa High School BB players since the 1960's

    I'll throw my hometown boy Nick Collison out there. McDonald's All-American, 2 state titles, great career at Kansas (Big 12 player of the year his senior year I think), and an average NBA career.

    Just too bad Floyd didn't stick around and we might have got him AND Heinrich. Imagine that team...Fizer, Heinrich, Collison, possibly Tinsley, Horton. Wow!

    I realize he went to a small school, but isn't Brooks McKowen (UNI) the state's leading scoring?

    McKowen would be up there for sure. Jason Bohannon would also be in contention.

    Raef will be on there.

    Yes but he probably wouldn't rank in the top 20 all time of greatest Iowa players

    Hoiberg
    Lafrentz
    Collison
    Barnes

    are the best lately

    Next best would be
    Hinrich
    Haluska
    Oliver
    Horner
    Maybe Bohannon
    Worley was good in high school

    Oliver was a heck of a high school player. He played against some pretty good guards in Ryan Sears, Andy Woodley, Matt Woodley, Andy Zedicker, Heinrich, etc and he was dominant.
