The person who put the initial all confrerence teams out was correct and I owe (Tosawest) an apology. My problem with the teams is that I personally do not believe that the best players are on the prospected teams. I have went to most of the woodland games or had collegues attend and their is no way you leave a player like Derrick Washington off the all conference team(s) but you award a player from Shorewood for what? Not to say the player from Shorewood (Harmon) is not a good player but you need to award the best players in the conference. Now everyone I spoke with (sportswriters,coaches and other woodland followers) stated that Derrick Washington was in the top ten performers by far.(I am a Data man for a recruitment service) Am I missing something here? I agree with Dorlack,Combs,Wiz on the 1st team but the woodland conference have to do a better job in rewarding the best players in the conference. Not because you want to see players from your school on these teams but the best players are rewarded. If the Woodland conference wants to be recognized as one of the elite conferences then you have to do a better job in rewarding your best players. (It does not add up) I have been around the game for 30+ years and I know talent. I feel that there is alot of talent in the Woodland and the best is yet to come but you need to reward your "best" players in the woodland to promote your conference. Hypothetical:Say one of your better players in the conference is snubbed in the future from any all-conference and go on to play for a good D-1 school, you think that person will say anything good about the woodland conference. I think the coaches or the politics of the conference miss the boat on this one. I also thought JJ Watts should been on the 1st team. Do not miss the boat woodland conference. It will back fire because of politics. This is not popularity contest. YOU PICK THE BEST PLAYERS AND THE "BEST PLAYERS" ARE NOT ON THE FIRST TEAM. I also think Taylor Janssen should been a first team all conference. IZZO: honorable mention. (Not to say IZZO did not help his team win some games.) All in all, the woodland conference did represent in the post season with Pewaukee knocking off Catholic Memorial. Woodland conference has some dynamic players coming with Wiz NBW,Washington BD...etc. Good wishes in the woodland next season.

Watch for my AAU team review coming soon. First team featured will be the Running Rebels varsity team with the likes of Demarcus Phillips (Washington), Marvin Fitzgerald(Vincent),Terrence Edwards(Milw. North), Derrick Washington(Your very own woodland conference player (Brown Deer) just to name few. They have confirmed tournaments in Houston,TX,Cleveland,OH, Las Vegas,Nevada and Kentucky to name a few. First tournament is @ Msoe (Milwaukee,WI) at the end of March.

Best wishes to you all.

Dominique Sharp
Vincent
F
6'4"
Undecided
The glue that kept it all together this year. Without Sharp, Vincent has no interior game. Easily the best athlete in the entire 07' class with excellent instincts, solid rebounding skills, and even better leadership qualities. Kid that everyone embraces because of his solid personality and willingness to do whatever it takes on the basketball floor. Vincent doesn't get past Germantown this weekend if it wasn't for his two big put backs and solid defense and rebounding down the stretch...period.

Jamil Wilson
Racine Horlick
F
6'7"
Undecided
The #1 available recruit in Wisconsin since Korie Lucious committed, Wilson put down an excellent year this year for Horlick before bowing out of the state tournament. Excellent length and athleticism with the ability to score in a number of ways.

Marshall Adams
Grace
SG
6'3"
Undecided
Cursed by the competition he played against but when you put up 30+ a game and you have two different 50+ games you have to be doing something right. Excellent shooting guard prospect with an old school flavor in that he can score at the mid range and stroke the 3 as is evident by the fact that he hit for 8 three pointers in a game earlier this year. Sleeper in the 2007 class.

Shane Woods
Bay View
SG
5'10"
Undecided
The second part of triple threat did not disappoint this year as he put up basket after basket helping Buycks & Co. put down an excellent season. Woods is the old school type who lets it fly and can shoot you in or shoot you out of a game. Many times this year he was shooting them in as he hit for 20+ a number of times to help Bay View put down an excellent season this year.

Dwight Buycks
Bay View
PG
6'2"
Bradley
Triple double threat every time he takes the floor. Easily one of if not the top player in the state of Wisconsin this year. Can do a number of things very well on the court. Excellent prospect with an unlimited upside at the next level.

Diante Garrett
Vincent
PG
6'4"
Iowa State
Probably the most gifted scoring threat in Wisconsin simply because he can attack the rim and finish on anyone. Great length, handles, and ability to finish in traffic give him an excellent chance to be a big time player at the next level. Biggest reason why Vincent is headed up state later this week.

Bryquis Perine
Vincent
SG
6'3"
UWGB
Easily the most underappreciated underrated and most well rounded of the players on this team. Play with a very smooth rhythm to his game and can hit you for 20 before you even notice. Solid length, excellent court awareness, and an excellent overall floor game. Does everything for the team and nothing for self which affects his statistics and keeps him from the press he deserves. He's the guy who time and time again has blown games wide open in the first half for Vincent. Excellent basketball player with solid upside at the next level.

Korie Lucious
Pius XI
PG
5'10"
Michigan State
The lone junior on the 1st team and by far the most deserving of it. Single handedly gave Pius XI a great year this year including a top 5 ranking in the state for most of the year. The simple fact that Korie was able to maintain his focus as a player despite all of the negative press since his transfer is a testament to just how mentally tough this kid is when he takes the floor. One of the big time talents ever to go through the state of Wisconsin...ever. Big time prospect, big time kid, and big time talent with unlimited potential at the next level.

James Haarsma
Racine St. Catherine's
F
6'5"
Undecided
Another underrated player. In a year with limited front court prospects in the Milwaukee Metro area, Haarsma was the biggest reason why Racine St. Catherine's has advanced again the the state tournament in Madison, WI. Absent a couple of poor performances against Union Grove, Haarsma really put together a solid year and his performance against Bradley Tech in helping his team upset them is the biggest reason why he takes this spot over the likes of Hill or Vines.

Chris Vines
Washington
F
6'4"
Undecided
Another of the most underappreciated players in the entire state of Wisconsin. A double double every time he takes the floor is a possibility. Led Milwaukee Washington to an excellent year this year before being upset by Milwaukee King in the Sectional Semi-Finals. Excellent basketball player who knows how to play the game and makes his team better whenever he's on the floor.

Anthony Hill
Bradley Tech
F
6'7"
UWM
Solid front court prospect who again is a double double waiting to happen. On a team loaded with guards, he was one the big who held down the paint and helped Bradley Tech bounced back from a mid-season swoon to advance to the Sectional Finals against Rufus King. Excellent young front court prospect who should have a solid career for Rob Jeter and the UWM Panthers.

Kwamaine Mitchell
Dominican
PG
6'0"
Undecided
Strong physical guard who can score in a number of ways. Really plays excellent on the ball defense and was the biggest reason Dominican advanced into the Division 2 sectional finals despite a lack of depth this year. The #2 rated prospect in the 2008 class stands to be the most highly recruited player next year with Korie Lucious committed to Michigan State.

Conor Smith
Catholic Memorial
F
6'7"
Undecided
Long forward who can stroke the rock from anywhere on the court. Big reason why Catholic Memorial had such an exceptional year. Was consistent night in and night out down the stretch and really had an excellent year this year by all accounts.

Jared Jenkins
Rufus King
G
6'4"
Undecided
Nothing flashy, no press, no hoopla...just solid basketball every game, tough defense, and leadership on a team that completely overachieved all year long and is now headed up to Madison looking for a state championship. Excellent leadership and team play by him this season is the biggest reason for the success of King this year.

F

One of those kids that had no help all year long and still put up big time numbers and almost had his team pull off a major upset in the state tournament. Long front court prospect who hit for 17+ a game and 12+ rebounds on a team that didn't really have any depth to help him out. Could become a steal for any school landing him next year.

William James
Marshall
G
6'2"
Undecided
The biggest reason why Marshall had a successful year this year as he was consistent night in and night out and put down solid numbers all year long. Solid prospect with excellent ability to put the ball in the hole.

John Henney
Burlington Catholic Central
F
6'7"
Undecided
Put down a big time year in leading Burlington Catholic Central to an excellent season this year. Stock really took off as a prospect this year as he put down big time game after big time game. Biggest reason for the success of his team this year. Really had an excellent year by all accounts.

Chris McHenry
Bradley Tech
SG
6'0"
Undecided
Strong left handed SG prospect who played a major part each night in how well Bradley Tech would do. When he hit for 15+ in a game they were virtually unbeatable...when he didn't, they didn't have enough firepower to beat a lot of teams. Hit some big time shots against Bay View in the Sections sem-finals to advance the finals against King before coming up short. Really should have an excellent year next year as the leader for Bradley Tech.

Terry Hollins
Marquette
G
6'1"
Undecided
Very underrated player who really had an excellent year before his team struggled down the stretch. Hit for 30 against Bay View in the state tournament doing everything he could to pull out the victory before falling short. Solid backcourt prospect who comes from a disciplined system. Had a great year and was a big time leader for the Marquette University High School basketball team.

Andy Smith
South Milwaukee
F
6'8"
Undecided
Had a big time year for a program and team that really has nothing else. Smith did whatever he could night in and night out to put up big numbers and help his team. He's the only reason South Milwaukee pulled out any victories this year and he should continue to develop and have an even better year next season.
