Jacobson an all-H10 first teamer

Kylan Smallwood earns second team for the second time

Evan Jacobson rounded out his Panther hoops career with the most notable honor of his basketball days: a spot on the first team of the Hawkeye 10 all-conference squad.

Jacobson took the leadership reins early on this past winter season, scoring 18 points per game, the fourth-highest total in the conference. Jacobson knocked down 55 3-pointers, a better mark than all but six players in the conference. His 41.4 shooting percentage from beyond the arc easily led the Panthers among players with more than a handful of shots.

Jacobson tallied 87 assists (fourth most in the H10), 56 steals (tied for second most) and plucked down 3.1 rebounds per game.

The senior guard shot 85.1 percent from the free throw line, making 80 of his 94 attempts, which was second in the Hawkeye 10, only behind first team all-state selection Nate Mohr.

Jacobson scored at least 20 points in four games and reached 30 twice. He made the team for the second time after earning honorable mention as a junior.

Second team honoree Kylan Smallwood led the Hawkeye 10 in scoring average at 23.1 points per game in 14 games played. His 8.8 rebounds per game marked the second highest total in the conference. Smallwood added 41 assists and 31 steals.

Smallwood shot 59.5 percent from the floor and showed off an improved 3-point stroke as he made 21 of 56 attempts (37.5 percent) from distance.

Smallwood scored at least 20 points seven times and reached 30 twice.

The versatile junior made second team as a freshman, first team as a sophomore, and second team once more this season.

Glenwood placed a conference-high five selections on the all-conference team.

No other school placed more than three.

*Correction: The article previously incorrectly stated that Smallwood did not make the all-conference team as a sophomore.
