Jason Williamson, junior, Owatonna
Notes: Whether it was soaring above the rim for blocks or throwing down one-handed dunks in transition, Williamson provided more highlight reel plays than anyone on the team this past winter. He’s an elite on-ball defender who averaged 2.7 steals and 4.2 rebounds per game. He also chipped in 9.7 points and 2.8 assists.
Karson Vigeland, sophomore, Blooming Prairie
Notes: A huge piece of BP’s promising young core, Vigeland averaged 10.7 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game while shooting a team-best 55.2 percent from the field overall.
Brady Agrimson, junior, NRHEG
Notes: Agrimson chipped in many facets for the Panthers, averaging 11.7 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.2 steals per game. His length (6-foot-4) and versatility allowed him to guard four positions.
Alex Raichle, senior, Owatonna
Notes: Raichle, who averaged 9.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.7 steals per game, could keep pace with any point guard in the Big Nine Conference on defense and used his strength to attack the rim with ease on offense. “He may have impacted more games in more ways than anyone our team,” said OHS coach Josh Williams.
Gabe Hagen, sophomore, Blooming Prairie
Notes: After missing half of the season with an injury, the sophomore slowly rounded into form by the end of February, leading the Awesome Blossoms in scoring (11.5) and rebounding (7.0) while shooting 50 percent from the field. As a 6-foot-3 forward, he also displayed excellent vision and finished second on the team in assists at 2.8 per game.
