03/19/2024, 3:45pm CDT

Amari McCottry of Saint Thomas More is a three-time first-team all-state selection while Drew Daoust of Southern Door, Devin Brown of Milwaukee Academy of Science and Dupree Fletcher Jr., of Carmen Northwest are repeat selections on the WBCA All-State squad among players who compete at the WIAA Division 3 level. 

The 6-foot-6 McCottry played point guard for much of the season for a Saint Thomas More squad that went 29-1 and won the first WIAA state basketball title in school history. The two-time Player of the Year in the Metro Classic Conference averaged 22.1 points, 8.8 rebounds and 5.3 assists. He scored 2,284 career points and hoping to make a collegiate decision in the near future. 

Junior Drew Daoust (6-2) of Southern Door finished third in the state in scoring at 32.8 ppg. He also contributed 5.5 rpg and 4.4 apg for a Southern Door team that went 22-5 and won the Packerland Conference title. Daoust was voted Player of the Year in the league and owns a NCAA Division II offer from Newman University. 

Devin Brown (6-7) of Milwaukee Academy of Science is a tough cover because of his ability to positively affect a game from the perimeter and in the paint. The physically strong and skilled junior helped MAS to a 17-8 record by averaging 20.5 points and 10.4 rebounds. He owns Division I offers from Bradley, Milwaukee, Mississippi State and Western Illinois, among others. 

Dupree Fletcher Jr. (6-0) of Carmen Northwest has committed to Division I Grambling State. He averaged 28.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 5.2 assists for Carmen Northwest while leading the team to the Milwaukee City Gold Tournament title. 

Senior point guard Pierce Arenz (5-10) of Kiel helped the Raiders to a 28-1 record, the Eastern Wisconsin Conference title and the school's first state-tournament appearance since 2010. The Player of the Year in the league averaged 19.4 points and 4.2 apg for the Raiders. He is headed to Division III Wisconsin Lutheran College to play basketball. 

Jamarion Batemon (6-3) is a bulldog backcourt prospect who helped Milwaukee Academy of Science to a regional title. Batemon had 26 points for MAS in its 75-72 loss in the sectional semifinals to eventual state-champion Saint Thomas More. He averaged 20.9 ppg, 4.3 rpg and 2.9 apg and is the object of an intense recruiting battle between Illinois, Iowa State and Marquette. 

Junior AJ Bender (6-3) of Lake Mills is one of the more athletic players in Wisconsin's loaded 2025 class. He led Lake Mills to a 23-4 record and the Capitol North Conference title by averaging 22.0 ppg, 4.7 rpg and 4.3 apg. The Player of the Year in the league owns Division I scholarship offers from Cal Poly and SIU-Edwardsville. 

Sekou Konneh (6-9) played on two teams that played in the state tournament and won league titles at Saint Thomas More. The improving and long forward prospect led the Cavaliers in both scoring (22.6 ppg) and rebounding (10.7 rpg). Like McCottry, Konneh plans to announce his collegiate selection this spring.  

Senior Lucas Ludlum (6-3) was picked Player of the Year in the Southwest Wisconsin Conference. He helped Platteville to a 24-4 record and the league title, averaging 15.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.4 steals.

Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau senior Cody Schmitz (6-5) was named Player of the Year in the Coulee Conference as a senior. The high-scoring wing prospect averaged a league-best 30.1 points and 11.0 rebounds. The four-year varsity performer completed his high school career with 2,654 points. He owns Division II offers from Minnesota-Moorhead, Northern Michigan and St. Cloud State. 

Junior Aaron Womack III (6-6) is smooth, athletic wing prospect who helped Dominican to a 22-4 record. He averaged 21.9 points, 9.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists. Womack holds a Division I offer from Milwaukee.
