Bowen Born named Mr. Basketball; IPSWA all-state teams announced

DES MOINES — The Iowa Print Sports Writers Association (IPSWA) announced the 2020 boys basketball all-state teams on Tuesday. The teams were selected by print sports writers in Iowa during a meeting on Sunday.

Norwalk’s Bowen Born was named Mr. Basketball. Born led the Norwalk Warriors to their first team state championship in Class 3A.

Born is headed to the University of Northern Iowa on a full-ride scholarship. He was 17 points shy of scoring 1,000 points in his senior season alone, scoring an average 36.4 points per game. The 5-foot-11 guard was sixth on the Iowa High School boys basketball all-time career scoring list. Norwalk was 79-23 during his four-year career. He is a three-time all-Little Hawkeye Conference first-teamer. Norwalk won three league titles under his leadership. He was the Class 3A Iowa Basketball Coaches Association Player of the Year in 2018-19.

Sports writers attending the meeting included Colin Peters (Centerville Daily Iowegian), Dale Wegner (Sac Sun), Daryl Schepanski (Anamosa Journal-Eureka), Greg Grabianowski (Algona Publishing), Jim Johnson (The Kalona News), Jim Nelson (Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier), Kristi Nixon (Hampton Chronicle), Kyle Ocker (Centerville Daily Iowegian), Matt Coss (Quad-City Times), Matt Gengler (Missouri Valley Times-News), Mike Oeffner (Harlan Newspapers), Noah Rohlfing (Marshalltown Times Republican), Perry Bell (Pella Chronicle), Ross Eberhart (The Observer), Ross Thede (Marshalltown Times Republican), Scott Spurgeon (Bloomfield Democrat), Troy Hyde (Newton Daily News), and Tyler Hetu (Creston News Advertiser).
