When you think of high school basketball in the state of Iowa, you start with Iowa City West High and legendary coach Steve Bergman. West participated in the inaugural shoot-out in 2018.
Since 2010, the Trojans have placed in the top 4 in the state every year but 2019. They won state titles in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2017. West lost one of the most decorated players in school history to graduation in Patrick McCaffery. But the cupboard is hardly bare. The Trojans were led in scoring by McCaffrey, but they return the next three leading scorers in Even Brauns, Nicholas Pepin and Marcus Morgan.
Brauns is 6'9 and holds offers from Drake, Toledo, Northern Iowa, Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Colorado State.
