The Austin Packers have built quite a program in Class 3A basketball in the almost Iowa Minnesota town. They made it to State 6 out of the last 8 years and so far for 2019-20, they are 16-3 and seem to be making that 7 of 9.
A big reason Austin is rocking at 16-3 is six-foot three-inch point guard Agwa Nywesh. The explosive point is averaging 15 points per game, 4.4 assists, and 4.4 steals per game. The Packers team has four players averaging 10 plus points per game.
Nywesh had his season high scoring, 30 points, versus Rochester Mayo twins Mason and Gabe Madsen in one match which Austin won 78-77. Another time early in the season Nywesh scored 23 points in a close 72-69 loss.
In late January, early February when I chatted with Nywesh he hadn’t made a college decision. In March he made it official selecting Idaho State.

Q: How’s the season going so far?
A: The season is going good we are currently 14-3. At the beginning we had some chemistry issues but through out the season we have been clicking lately and have gotten closer as a team and have learned to trust each other with the ball.
Q: What do you do to improve your game?
A: Getting in the gym as much as I can. I like working on my craft and seeing it transition on the court during games. I watch a lot of YouTube videos on the pick and roll and breaking down certain NBA players that resemble my game and I get a mixture out of all there games and put it into my game.
Q: Which players do you try to model your game after?
A: Kobe Bryant, Damian Lillard, and Stephen Curry.
Q: How’s recruiting going for you?
A: Recruiting wise I have interest from South Dakota State University, University of Northern Iowa, University of North Dakota, and NDSU. Also some D2 and D1 JUCOs have been interested in me as well.
Q: What kind of music are you listening to?
A: I listen to a little bit of everything but before games I tend to listen to Meek Mill and J. Cole.
