Nate Cole Buffalo Grove Whatever Buffalo Grove needed, Cole seemed to find a way to provide it. "Nate is an ultimate team player," Buffalo Grove coach Keith Peterson said. "He does whatever is needed to help the team win. He had to guard the other team's best post player this year and did a great job with that. He would score when we needed him to score, he would rebound when we needed rebounding and if he had to be a playmaker, he would make plays. 
Kam Craft Buffalo Grove A 46-point game against Rolling Meadows highlighted the season for Craft, who seemed to be able to score at will in that game and in many games during his sophomore campaign. Craft, the MSL East Co-Player of the Year, averaged 23.5 points per game. "He is an extremely skilled scorer who can score in a variety of ways," Buffalo Grove coach Keith Peterson said. 
Tyler Kipley Buffalo Grove Statistics don't necessarily best tell Kipley's story. "Tyler's impact this year went way beyond the numbers," Buffalo Grove coach Keith Peterson said. "He led our offense as our point guard and our defense as a disrupter. His ability to handle the basketball and run our offense is one of the reasons we could play with such pace and not have high turnover numbers.
