Kane County Chronicle 2013-14 Boys Basketball All-Area Team

Published: Friday, March 21, 2014 5:30 a.m. CST

First team

Dom Adduci

St. Charles East, Sr., G

Adduci roared out of the gates this season as defenders struggled to keep the hard-charging combo guard out of the lane, and had little defensive recourse when his perimeter shot also was falling.

Led the Saints with 19.2 points a game and scored 40 points in a conference win against Elgin.

Alec Goetz

St. Charles North, Sr., G

Goetz led North with a scoring average of 16.6 points a game and showcased his feathery shooting touch by making 38 percent of his 3-pointers and 83 percent of his free throws. Supplied signature performance with 36-point outburst against Simeon in a triple overtime loss.

Ty Carlson

Kaneland, Sr., F

In coach Brian Johnson’s estimation, the Northern Illinois Big 12 East co-player of the year had his best single season at Kaneland since former Knights star Dave Dudzinski, who went on to play Division I basketball at Holy Cross.

Carlson averaged team-high 16.3 points and was second on team with 7.3 rebounds a game.

One of the area’s clutchest performers, Carlson closed his career with 38 points in sectional loss to Rockford Lutheran.

Nate Navigato

Geneva, Jr., F

Kane County Chronicle Player of the Year proved remarkably efficient, making 52 percent of his field goal attempts, 40 percent of his 3-point shots and 87 percent of his free throws while leading sectional final-qualifying Geneva in scoring (18.3 points a game), rebounding (5.7 a game) and blocks (32 for the season). 

Makur Puou

Mooseheart, Sr., C

The 6-foot-10 powerhouse finished as the top vote-getter for the IHSA Class 1A All-State team.

Puou played a central role in the Ramblers’ run to their first state championship in school history, averaging team bests of 21.2 points and 13.8 rebounds while lending his intimidating shot-blocking prowess to the Ramblers’ towering front line. Selected MVP of the Northeastern Athletic Conference.
