Boys Division 1 All-State Team

By WBCA, 03/14/14, 8:00PM CDT


Brady Ellingson of Sussex Hamilton, Riley LaChance of Brookfield Central, and Kevon Looney of Milwaukee Hamilton lead the way as unanimous selections to the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association Division 1 All-State Team.

Looney is a three-time unanimous selection, while LaChance and Ellingson are All-State picks for the second straight year.

Ellingson, a 6-4 senior guard committed to Iowa, is one of the best shooters in the state, connecting on 62 three-pointers while scoring 25.4 points per game. He made one of the season's most dramatic shots to win a regional final over Kettle Moraine.

LaChance is a multi-year standout on the Brookfield Central varsity squad, leading the Lancers to a Greater Metro title and unbeaten regular season as a senior. The 6-2 Vanderbilt recruit poured in 23 points per game for head coach Mark Adams.

Looney helped Milwaukee Hamilton to the state tournament as a freshman and has been on not only the state but the national radar ever since. The 6-9 UCLA recruit did it all for the Wildcats, leading them to the Milwaukee City Conference title while scoring 27.9 points per game.

Trevor Anderson earned Honorable Mention All-State as just a freshman last season, and upped it to First Team recognition this year. He led the Wisconsin Valley Conference in scoring at 21 points per game as the league's Player of the Year.

Matt Heldt is a fast-developing big man who helped Neenah to a FVA title and appearance in the Division 1 state tournament this season. The 6-10 junior averaged 18.4 points and 7.5 rebounds while blocking more than 2 shots per game as the league co-Player of the Year.

Chris Howell has helped Milwaukee King back to a third straight Division 1 state tournament appearance, excelling on both ends of the court for the Generals and head coach Jim Gosz. He led the team in both scoring (16.9 points per game) and rebounding (10.5 boards per contest) while adding 3.8 steals per contest.

Paul Miller led Kettle Moraine to an outright title in the Classic Eight Conference this season as the Lasers finished 12-2 in league play. The 6-4 senior North Dakota State commit averaged 19.3 points per game for head coach Brad Bestor.

Nick Noskowiak fully took the reins from last year's All-State forward Nick Fuller to lead Sun Prairie to a second place finish in the Big Eight and sectional final appearance. He poured in 20 points per game for head coach Jeff Boos.

Adam Pohlman is the catalyst for a Neenah team that is at the state tournament in Division 1. The senior point guard averaged 11.3 points per game to go with better than 6 assists as the FVA co-Player of the Year and member of the league's All-Defensive team.

Brevin Pritzl helped De Pere claim a share of a fifth straight Fox River Classic Conference title this season, averaging 20.9 points per game. The 6-3 guard was a First Team all-league choice as a junior this year.

Evan Wesenberg is a key contributor on a Germantown squad that is going for a third straight Division 1 title game. The 6-7 senior forward averages 12.8 points and 6.0 rebounds per game for the Warhawks.

Darrlyn Willis accepted a much larger role as a senior, doing everything asked of him by head coach Steve Collins. Willis was the Big Eight Player of the Year as Madison Memorial won an outright league title, averaging 17.3 points per game to nearly double his scoring average from last season.
