Third annual boys all-county team (Assisted greatly by Bill Bentson’s Three Rivers Conference Stats)

1st Team

Kole Ruud (5’11” junior G, Lanesboro) Of the Burros three big-scorers (Peterson, Rogers), Ruud was the best, the most difficult to defend. He could do it from deep (68 made 3-pointers at a 40% clip), beat his guy off the dribble and make tough shots in the lane, or get fouled and make a living at the line (76% FT shooter). And that’s why he was the SEC Player of the Year. Averaged just over 22 points per game, which was top three in the SEC. Also averaged 3.4 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 2.4 steals. Scored a season-high 40 (9 three-pointers) against long and athletic 3-Rivers foe Lewiston-Altura. Went over 30 points in a game four times; three came in the final five contests where Kole averaged 31.0 PPG. Went over 20 points in a game 18 times and only once didn’t get to 10. A scorer-de-jour. Helped lead Lanesboro to second place finish in the SEC and a Sub-Section 1A runner-up. All-SEC.

Cole Kingsley (5’11” sophomore G, Rushford-Peterson): When you are the starting PG, on a team that ties for the conference title, goes 28-4, and takes third at state, and you are a threat to notch 10 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, and/or 10 steals in a game; you’re something special. On a team of skilled and poised basketball players, Kingsley was probably the best amalgamation of skill, poise, and athleticism. Cole led the Trojans in scoring (10.7 per game), assists (4.8 per game), and steals (3.1 per game). The later two were first and second in the 3-Rivers conference respectively. Kingsley also snared 3.8 rebounds per game. He shot 55.8% from the field (3rd in the 3-Rivers), and 38.5% from beyond the 3-point arc (5th in the 3-Rivers). Cole was smooth-running efficient engine that drove the R-P machine. 3-Rivers All-Conference

Jayme LaPlante (6’3” junior F, Chatfield): The phrases unstoppable and man-child come to mind when discussing LaPlante. It just took the Gophers roughly half the year to start focusing their offense on the super-athletic 6’3” 215-pounder. Once they did, their team record improved resultantly (6-7 in first 13 games, 9-5 over last 14). Jayme led the 3-Rivers conference in FG percentage at 61.7 (hence unstoppable). He was second on his team in scoring (10.8 PPG) and rebounding (6.2 RPG) while also averaging 1.4 steals per game. Over the last half of the year (14 games), he only failed to reach double figures once while scoring a season high 22 points .....

Waiting For the Inevitable It just seems to happen, probably all too often for non-Trojan fans. An opponent tests the Rushford-Peterson boys, usually early on, and then presto. R-P forces some turnovers. They score in bunches. Next thing you kn .....
