Indiana Boys’ Basketball All-Stars

first_imgAccording to the Indianapolis Star, the Mr. Basketball for Indiana will come from one of these 6 players:  Damezi Anderson of South Ben Riley, Aaron Henry of Ben Davis, Eric Hunter of Tindley, Mekhl Lairy of Evansville Bosse, Romeo Langford of New Albany, or Robert Phinisee of McCutcheon.  Only Hunter is from a small school.  This is a bit deceiving, however, since Tindley is an Indianapolis prep school.They can talk all they want about class basketball for Indiana, but when it comes to choosing an All-Star team the athletes from big schools or prep schools have the best chance.  For example, there are no players from a great Morristown team who roared through the 1A state championship this year.  Besides the 6 players named above, the other All-Stars come from schools like Warren Central, Lawrence North, Bloomington South, and Plainfield.Oh, well, I remember how difficult it was to get the athletes from Batesville on the All-Star teams in the past.  Only because of the hard work of their coaches did Jim Fristch, Sr., Donna Lamping, Cindy Lamping, Curt Clawson, Michael Menser, and Colt Ryan make the team.  Except for Fritsch, the other 5 were among the top scorers in the state.last_img read more
