Lakes High School's fans saw plenty of shots fall through the hoop by former standout John Androus, the school's all-time scoring leader.
Androus left Luther fans with those same memories.
The 6-foot-5 senior led the team with 487 points this winter and was recently named a first team all-Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection.
Androus finished the season ranked fifth in scoring (18.7), second in rebounding (8.6), second in field goal percentage (56.2 percent, 86 of 153) and fourth in assists (2.93).
