After elevating his game to an all-state level in football this year, Maryville's Jonathan Baker replicated that feat on the hardwood.
The sweet-shooting senior guard was selected to the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association's Class 3 All-State team last week, joining a select group of Spoofhound athletes to take home all-state honors in multiple sports.
A first team all-state quarterback, Baker led the Hounds in scoring this past season with 16.9 points per game. He was also the team's leading rebounder with 4.6 per game and the top assist man with 3.5 per game.
Baker shot 51.3 percent from the field, over 46 percent from three and was nearly automatic at the foul line, connecting on 88.2 percent of his attempts.
A three-year varsity starter, Baker set a new career-high with 34 points and joined the school's 1,000 point club in a 64-57 win over Smithville on Feb. 1.
He went for 26 points and hit five three's in the team's loss to eventual Class 3 runner-up St. Pius X in sectionals.
With Baker playing a lead role, the Hounds posted a 20-8 record and won their first district title since the 2009-2010 season.
Baker, a Northwest Missouri State football signee, finished his basketball career with more than 1,100 points and is one of just eight players in the school's history to total over 1,000.
Along with making his first all-state team, Baker grabbed first team All-MEC honors for the second straight year. Joining him on the all-conference team are Hound senior guard Treyton Burch and junior forward Trent Nally, both of which garnered honorable mention.
Burch averaged 10 points per game and three assists. Nally scored 7.1 points per game and pulled down 3.8 rebounds per game. MHS senior guard Blair Twaddle and junior guard Chelsea Byland were honorable mention selections on the girls All-MEC squad.
There was one other player from Nodaway County to earn all-state honors: Nodaway-Holt junior guard Megan Rosenbohm. She made the Class 1 All-State girls team for the third consecutive year of her high school career.
Bothered by a shoulder injury over the last half of the season, Rosenbohm still averaged 20.7 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.5 steals and 4.1 assists per game. All were team-highs for the Lady Trojans who claimed a share of the 275 title and reached the district finals.
Rosenbohm made first team All-275 as well along with North Nodaway junior guard Cambry Schluter.
On the boys side, Nodaway-Holt junior Nick Patterson and senior Derek Lemon were each first team All-275 honorees.
The All-Platte Valley Conference first teams included 11 players from the county's three league schools.
Jefferson's girls and boys had a trio of first team selections.
Girls honorees were seniors Jill Henry, Ashley Chor and Shanna Welch. For the boys, it was senior Zach Jermain, senior Blake Meyer and junior Kyler Farnan.
