2011 MIAA All-Tournament Team

Skyler Bowlin

Senior guard

The MIAA’s player of the year showed why he’s one of the conference’s best, scoring 65 points in the Lions’ three games in Kansas City, averaging just under 22 per game.

“Skyler obviously had a nice tournament,” Head Coach Robert Corn said. “So it’s always nice to have guys get recognized.”

“All year it’s been us two [Thomann] and Jason [Adams] I guess being depended upon for the scoring and we just thought we had to do that to win some games,” Bowlin said.


Keane Thomann

Junior center

The tournament’s leading scorer, Thomann had 72 points at Municipal Auditorium. The junior center averaged 24 points per game as well as six rebounds per contest.

“Keane especially stepped up and had a great tournament and he was very deserving to be on the All-Tournament team,” Corn said.

“I didn’t even know they did an All-Tournament team,” Thomann said. “Because I haven’t been around [past tournaments] long enough.”


Dominique Jones

Senior guard

Scoring 30 points in the MIAA Championship game against the Lions, the one-handed free-throw shooter singlehandedly willed the Tigers to the conference title and automatic berth to the South Central Regional tournament.

“Dom is an exciting player to watch him play,” Jones’ teammate Corbin Kuntzsch said. “You’ll never see, I’ve never played with anybody that can make the shots he can make…it’s exciting to watch and fun to play with too.”


Corbin Kuntzsch

Senior guard

Kuntzsch contributed 18 points of his own in the Tigers’ clinching game, shooting seven of 11 from the field and pulling down four rebounds.

“We got it done today and really our seniors down the line, the stats obviously…Corbin was real big with 18,” Head Coach Mark Johnson said. “You win when you have good players and experienced players and these guys are both.”

Kuntzsch was held to 10 points against Southern in the regular seeason.


Dijon Smith

Senior forward

Smith was also big for the Tigers throughout the tournament and the clinching game with his 14 rebounds and 14 points.

Smith ranked in the Top-10 in scoring throughout the tournament and lit up Southern in the regular season for 34 points, an average of 17 per game.

Smith also had three blocks in Sunday’s championship game, slowing the Southern offense wiich scored just over its season average with 83.
