Find out who the best athletes in the area are by checking out the NOW All-Suburban teams:

Making the Team

How they are chosen

  • The NOW sports staff begins compiling each All-Suburban team by contacting all coaches in its coverage area and asking for nominations. Coaches provide comments on each player and season statistics.
  • That information is put on a ballot to which NOW reporters add their own first-hand impressions of players.
  • Each staff member then votes for the 10 players he feels should be on the team, ranking them from 10 to 1. The player with the most points is named the Player of the Year and the next 10 players are also named to the team.
  • Those players receiving votes who do not make the team earn high honorable mention and those who are nominated but don't receive votes earn honorable mention.

Bowers a defensive stopper

Bowie looks to better his game

Wauwatosa East's Darrell Bowie led his team in scoring and rebounding while earning a spot on the All-Suburban Team and the Greater Metro Conference first team. But he's not satisfied just yet.(1)

West's Mathwig back atop NOW honor roll

New Berlin West senior Chad Mathwig is on the All-Suburban team for the second consecutive season. He's the all-time leading scorer in Vikings history and a two-time conference player of the year.

Brookfield Central's Olson a key contributor

Brookfield Central's Alex Olson, who led online voting for this season's All-Suburban Team, was named to the Greater Metro Conference first team and nearly became the school's all-time assists leader.

Pelkofer lives up to family bloodlines

Whitnall's Stephen Pelkofer added to his family's rich hoops lineage this season, leading the Falcons to a 17-8 overall mark and a regional title while earning a spot on the All-Suburban Team.(1)

Romanowski hopes to start a trend

6-7 senior Nick Romanowski earned his second consecutive selection to the All-Suburban Basketball team while leading Franklin to an 18-6 mark that could be the best in school history.(1)

Schneck and Patten lead Blue Dukes title run

Whitefish Bay's Ron Patten and Jamie Schneck were a formidable 1-2 punch for the Blue Dukes this season. Both developed as leaders and helped Bay to the Division 2 state title.

Ike freshman Timmer earns NOW nod

Eisenhower freshman Reed Timmer made an immediate impact in varsity play, leading the Lions in scoring, steals and assists. He is the first frosh to make the team since J.P Tokoto three seasons ago.


Lazovik's steady hand leads Bay

Whitefish Bay coach Kevin Lazovik, a reserve guard on the Blue Dukes' 1998 state champion team, came full circle this season and led his alma mater to the Division 2 state title.


The Tokoto Watch


The latest on Menomonee Falls basketball star J.P. Tokoto, one of the top prep players in the nation.

Dunk you very much: Tokoto put on a slam clinic after a recent practice.

Most recent game: On the heels of Tokoto's decision to attend the University of North Carolina, Menomonee Falls bowed out in the first round of the playoffs in a nail-biting loss to Waukesha South. The question now turns to whether or not Tokoto returns for his senior season with Menomonee Falls. The Indians finished the year 11-12.

Season stats:
Tokoto averages 20.5 points per game, fifth among Milwaukee-area players with at least 13 games played.

Next level: lists Tokoto as the No. 40 prospect in the nation among 2012 recruits. He announced he would be attending the University of North Carolina on March 3. Check out our photo gallery and archived video from the event.
