First team

Nathan Heise

(Lake City, jr. guard)

21.9 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 4.5 apg, 2.2 spg, All-HVL, HVL Player of the Year, All-State Tournament Team, 2019 Republican Eagle Player of the Year

From head coach Greg Berge: "Nate had a phenomenal year, leading our team in all statistical categories. He is a very dynamic player and a 3-year starter, who can change the game in multiple ways. He is also a very unselfish player who will do whatever is needed to win the game. Nate's shooting skill is well known, but he showed his ability to play the point and lead a team this season. His ability to break a defense down and create plays for himself and others are what make him such a dynamic player. Nate has put countless hours into the game of basketball and he has a very high ceiling."

Reid Gastner

(Lake City, jr., guard)

14.6 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 4.5 apg, 1.8 spg, All-HVL, Class AA All-State Tournament Team

From head coach Greg Berge: "Reid is our second leading scorer, and 3-year starter, and one of the best defensive players in our area and in the state. Reid was right with Nate in most statistical categories all season long. Reid is an unselfish player who makes everyone around him better. Reid is a great shooter who can score in multiple ways inside and out. He is a player who can play and guard all 5 positions on the court. He is also team first guy and a physical presence on the court. Reid has put a ton of time into basketball and it is great to see his hard work pay off."

Jacob Weber

(Pine Island, sr. guard)

18.7 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 3.2 apg, 1.9 spg, Two-time All-HVL

From head coach Jim McNamara: "Jacob has been one of the scoring leaders in the HVL the past two seasons. He has the ability to score from outside the arc, shoot the mid-range jumper and attack off the dribble."

Carsyn Gunderson

(Randolph, sr., forward)

19.3 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.9 apg, 1.7 spg, 43.0 3-point percentage, Three-time All-SEC

From head coach Kent Otte: "Carsyn is a very intelligent basketball player and created matchup problems for opponents due to his great scoring ability."

Zach Hutton

(Zumbrota-Mazeppa, jr., forward)

15.5 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 3.4 apg, All-HVL

From head coach Fred Liffrig: "Zach played every position for us. He was our most versatile player. He could play inside or outside. He was a key component to our conference co-championship."

Second team

Isaac Illa

(Cannon Falls, sr., forward)

15.3 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 1.1 apg, 1.8 spg, All-HVL

From head coach Josh Davisson: "Isaac worked really hard to become one of the best players in the HVL. While he is not an imposing athlete, he has a drive few others possess. He routinely comes up with big rebounds, tipped passes and clutch baskets for his team. Isaac is the epitome of hard work paying off. He will attend Central College in Iowa next year and play basketball."

Cole Peters

(Zumbrota-Mazeppa, sr., guard)

16.5 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.9 apg, 2.4 spg, All-HVL

Zach Cota

(Red Wing, sr., guard)

15.2 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 3.1 apg, All-Big 9

From head coach Drew Olinger: "Zach has put in a great deal of time to become the basketball player that he is today. He lead our team in three major statistical categories this season (points, rebounds, and assists). He was also very consistent in providing our team with energy both on and off the court."

Sam Opsahl

(Goodhue, jr. guard)

13.7 ppg, 4 rpg, 3.2 apg, 1.8 spg, All-HVL

From head coach Matt Halverson: "Sam has been instrumental for our team the last two seasons. He is very versatile and is asked to do a lot. He draws the attention of a lot of other teams. He has been able to add to his game every year so far in the program and are looking for him to take another step forward next year as a senior."

Luke Sjoquist

(Cannon Falls, jr., guard)

14.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.2 spg, All-HVL

From head coach Josh Davisson: "Luke really gained confidence on both ends of the court this season as the year progressed. He's always been a solid shooter. However, his ability to defend and score in ways other than from 3-point range are what makes him so important to the things we do as a team."
