Gabe Knutson (forward) and newcomer Corey Schaefer (point guard), will renew acquaintances from high school this summer – if they haven’t already – by playing summer ball in DesMoines . They’ll square-off against one another at least once in the five week Capital City Y program. Check out the company they’ll keep and the number of talented players from Iowa State and Drake, in particular. On Corey’s team alone you have two notables guards in 5’11" Korie Lucious, former Michigan State star who will sit out the upcoming season at Iowa State but be ready to compete in ’11-’12 together with 6’5" guard Chris Babb, former Nittany Lion who sat-out last year at Iowa State but will play this year. Gabe, on the other hand, will apparently be sharing court time with Royce White, 6’8" forward out of Minnesota (’09-’10) who sat out last year’s play at Iowa State and is set to go this year for the Cyclones.

Coach Reed’s Comments
A 6-0 point guard, Schaefer will join current sophomore Gabe Knutson as natives of Iowa. Schaefer enjoyed a standout career for Johnston High School, helping lead it to a 17-5 record and No. 7 distinction in the Iowa Class 4A rankings. He was named 4A Second Team All-State after averaging 14.5 points and three assists per game in the state’s highest classification. Schaefer also played for Martin Brothers out of Iowa this summer. In addition to Lehigh, he received interest from North Dakota, Eastern Illinois and Bucknell. Corey has a tremendous feel for the game of basketball. He is a heady player with a strong basketball IQ who seems to know how to win. He is also creative with the ball, has vision and can create for himself and his teammates. His shooting ability and his deep range will make him a threat from long distance as well. Conroy’s defensive versatility and rebounding talent will be tremendous assets for our program. In addition, he has demonstrated the ability to stretch the defense by making perimeter shots. His length, along with this athleticism, will allow him to score in a variety of ways on the court and will also provide a shot blocking presence.
