Kris Humphries is College Basketball News' Minnesota Player of the Year and highlighted the College Basketball News' Minnesota All-State team. Nine seniors and two juniors made the team. The high school class of 2003 is considered Minnesota's top group of seniors ever. The team is so talented that 6-10 Longar Longar of Rochester John Marshall, 6-7 Dan Fitzgerald from St. Thomas Academy and 6-3 Darren Clarke of Hopkins just missed making the squad.

6-4 guard Kyle Marxhausen of Rosemont (MN) High has received the attention of several Ivy League, military and high Division II programs. Marxhausen averaged 18.1 points and 4.6 assists per game. He shot an impressive 42% from three-point range for the 16-11 Irish, which play in the same Lake Conference as yours truly.
