1st Team

Kole Ruud (6’0” senior G, Lanesboro): There was no player more offensively crass to opponents in the SEC than the Burros Ruud scoring machine Kole’s encore to a 22 point-per-game SEC Player of the Year junior year? A 26 point-per-game repeat SEC Player of the Year senior year. He broke, smashed, Braden Hanson’s school scoring mark (1,430), setting the new record at 1,599, doing so in 22 less games (80 to 102). Ruud scored 706 points in 2013-2014 alone. His 41 points versus Mabel-Canton (the night he broke the record) was a new personal best (topping a 40-point performance versus, L-A as a junior). In the Burros 27 games, Ruud scored 20 or more 22 times. He hit for 30 on 10 occasions (including a string of four straight mid-season). He was never was held in single digits. In the past two seasons (54 games), he hit for 20 or more on 40 occasions and only once was held in single digits. Kole made an SEC-best 71 3-pointers in league play at a 38% clip, a total of 101 for the 2013-2014 season. He made six or more in game seven times including 8 of 16 versus Spring Grove. He hit at least one three-pointer in every game. And behind the arc wasn’t even his best zone. Ruud was a master at getting fouled, eating s’mores and hot dogs at the charity stripe all season long. He made 159 of 195 freebies (81.5%). He hit five or more FT’s 17 times including efforts of 16 for 18, 14 for 15, and 12 for 13. Added 4.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 2.3 steals per game. A two-time All-Conference player, two time first team All-County player, and Academic All-Stater.

Nate Skare (6’2” senior G, Chatfield): For his first two years of full varsity basketball action, Skare was mostly noted for his shooting prowess. He was one of the 3-Rivers’ elite long-range bombers. For his senior year, his efforts on the court metastasized. He had his most complete season. He kept scoring, topping 1,000 points, finishing at 1,117 for his career (top five in Gopher history). He hit the ballyhooed mark, and had a career-high 39 points, in separate games against his hometown school Kingsland. Skare’s 13.8 point per game, for a third consecutive season, led the Gophers. It was good enough for 10th best in the 3-Rivers. But he was also second best on the team in rebounds (6.3), assists (3.2), steals (1.6), and 3-point percentage (39.8). The later was fifth best in the TRC. He had a couple notable stat-stuffing games, 16 points, 13 rebounds, and 7 .....
