2016 AP boys basketball all-state team

Editor's note: Dennis Semrau covers prep sports for ESPN Madison 100.5 FM.

It was quite a run for Stevens Point Area High School the past two years capped by an undefeated season for senior Trev Anderson and the Panthers.

For his efforts in directing the relentless attack on offense and defense, Anderson has been named The Associated Press’ Player of the Year in Wisconsin after helping guide the Panthers to a repeat Division 1 title.

Waupun’s Dan Domask was named AP’s Coach of the Year after guiding the school to its first trip to the state tournament since 1927 and the Division 3 title.

Waupun held on for a thrilling 59-58 victory over Appleton Xavier to win the title last month.

Anderson, a UW-Green Bay recruit, capped his four-year career with more than 2,000 points and also shared the state’s Mr. Basketball award with teammate Sam Hauser, a Marquette recruit. They also were the only two unanimous choices on the AP all-state team.

A phenomenal scorer, Anderson averaged 24.9 points per game, shooting 63 percent from the field, including 53 percent from 3-point range, and 89 percent at the free-throw line. He also averaged 4.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists for Stevens Point, which finished 28-0. The Panthers’ closest victory was a nine-point win over Sauk Prairie in December.

Joining Anderson and Hauser on the first team were junior Kobe King of La Crosse Central, a Division 2 state semifinalist, sophomore Jordan McCabe of Division 2 state champion Kaukauna, and Germantown senior Juwan McCloud, a second-team AP selection last year and a Northern Iowa recruit.

King has made a verbal commitment to play for the University of Wisconsin and coach Greg Gard.

Big Eight Conference Player of the Year Deang Deang of Madison East topped the second team, which also included Stevens Point sophomore Joey Hauser, Sam’s younger brother, senior David Larson of Division 1 semifinalist Sheboygan North, senior Terrence Lewis of Milwaukee Riverside and Te’Jon Lucas of Milwaukee Washington.

Deang, who will attend Highland Community (Ill.) College, averaged 19.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 3.0 steals per game, shooting 58.8 percent from the field, and was one of the state’s top defenders.

Middleton junior forward Tyree Eady earned second-team honors along with Sauk Prairie senior guard Seth Kostroski, while Evansville senior forward Kyle Rutkowski earned fourth-team honors.

Eady led the Big Eight Conference in scoring, averaging 20.7 points along with 5.2 rebounds, 3.2 steals and 1.8 assists per game. He helped lead Middleton to a share of its first conference title since 2001.

Kostroski, the two-time Badger North Conference Most Valuable Player, finished as the Eagles’ all-time leading scorer and averaged 19.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

Rutkowski averaged a double-double for the Blue Devils with 17.4 points and 16.0 rebounds per game.

Sophomore guard Mitch Listau of Waunakee, the Division 2 state runner-up, and junior guard Matthew Myers of Division 5 state semifinalist Barneveld lead a list of area players receiving honorable mention recognition.

Also honored were: Deerfield senior Blake Ehrke; Lake Mills senior Simon Lensmire; Madison Memorial junior Chris Knight; McFarland senior Benjamin Rounds; Middleton junior Storm Murphy; and Oregon senior Charlie Soule.
