Fred Hoiberg started putting up big numbers on the basketball court as a sophomore at Ames High, when he averaged 26 points and 14 rebounds per game. He’d only have about 5 points in the first quarter, his coach Wayne Clinton, said, making sure the rest of the team got into the flow. He’d maybe have 11 by halftime. “Then, all of a sudden, you look up and he has 25," Clinton said. Ames won the Iowa 3A (large school) state title in 1990, Fred's senior year, beating Waterloo East, 79-63. Karen Hoiberg still keeps a clip from the Ames Tribune.
