    Small school basketball players

    Has anyone seen anyone from a small school that has really impressed you?

    Yeah, Gary Thompson was pretty good. From a very small school, Roland-Story. Or did Roland have their own high school in those days.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    What is considered small? 2-A and below? Jared Homan, Klay Edwards, Loren Meyer, just off the top.

    I thought you meant from a small school, but in college. There have been several. In the future I think there will be more that will have success at the college level, due to AAU all evening the playing field. Recently:
    There is a player up at Boyden-Hall that looked good, and the two big guys from Rock Valley.

    I'm not picking on you at all, I'm just telling you what 95% of these threads are for.

    And frankly, if you posted this on Iowa Preps, you might actually get more hits. I'd bet most on this board can't name 5 small school basketball players. They can probably name half of Ames High's team, but that's definitely not a small school.

    Really? I played him in aau a couple weeks ago. I held him to 8 Pts and I had 7. He has at least 4 inches on me in hieghth and I even blocked him. I was was wondering what mcdermott saw in him. But now I see he got his scholarship pulled he'll go to some small d1 school. I will say that he was a lot stronger than I thought he'd be

    Try the IAHSAA site. You will find a listing of the All Tournament teams in all four classes from the State Tournament.
