Combined six men’s and women’s athletes gain all-HCAC hoops honors

NORTH MANCHESTER, IND. – A combined five men’s and women’s basketball team members were recognized from Manchester University on the 2017 all-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference awards, released Feb. 27 and March 1.

Coach Josh Dzurick’s women’s program, which concluded the 2016-17 season at 9-16 overall and 8-10 in the league, had senior guard Jenifer Lee (Rockville, Ind.) and sophomore guard Faith-Alexis Graham (Indianapolis, Ind.) placed on the honorable mention list and freshman guard Brianna Henson (Cicero, Ind.) named to the Sportsmanship team. Lee wrapped her final campaign in a Black and Gold uniform averaging 9.1 points and just under four rebounds per contest while leading Manchester University in steals (33) and ranking among the top three-point shooters in the HCAC, hitting 35 of 108 attempts for a 32.4 percent clip. Graham finished just out of the conference’s top 10 in assists, averaging 2.2 per game (No. 12) as part of a second-year slate in which she averaged 6.5 points per appearance and was the team leader in assists (57).

On the men’s side of the ledger, Coach Gerad Good’s crew, earning its second successive berth to the loop postseason tournament and gaining its first tourney win since 2011 as part of a 10-17 overall and 7-11 conference mark, placed senior guard Tyler Alexander (Indianapolis, Ind.) and sophomore guard Adrian Johnson (Indianapolis, Ind.) on the honorable mention roster. Senior guard Chase Casteel (Monrovia, Ind.) was named to the Sportsmanship squad.

Alexander was among the HCAC’s top four in scoring (18 ppg), field goal percentage (63.6) and rebounding (7.2 pg) and wound up in the top 10 in steals (1.3 pg). Johnson, picking up his second all-conference notification in a Spartans’ uniform after being named Freshman of the Year in 2016, averaged 16.2 points per contest and was the league’s steals’ leader (2.2 pg) while ranking ninth in free throw accuracy (81.7 percent).

Parrett Leads County Trio On All State Teams


Fifteen seniors and 15 underclass girls basketball players have earned IBCA/Subway “Supreme 15” All-State honors for 2016-17, it was announced Wednesday (March 1).

For the third year, the IBCA also named Large School All-State teams (15 seniors, 15 underclass) and Small School All-State players (15 seniors, 15 underclass).

The “Supreme 15” is the top honor awarded, and players were voted to that group without regard to school size. The Large School and Small School all-state teams are secondary accolades — the Large School group including players from Class 3A and Class 4A schools and the Small School group including players from Class A and Class 2A schools. Players who make the Supreme 15 are not considered for Large School or Small School honors.

In addition, 85 more seniors and 85 more underclass players were selected honorable mention all-state. The honorable mention laurels are awarded without regard to school size. Those voted to the 2017 IBCA/Subway Supreme 15 Senior girls’ team are: Riley Blackwell of Plainfield, Dana Evans of Gary West, Maliah Howard-Bass of Columbus North, Nicole Konieczny of South Bend St. Joseph, Bre Lloyd of Hamilton Southeastern, Rachel McLimore of Zionsville, Destiny Perkins of Lawrence North, Aly Reiff of Whitko, Paige Saylor of Roncalli, Anne Secrest of Tippecanoe Valley, Ajanae Thomas of North Central, Macee Williams of Fountain Central, Madison Wise of Greenfield-Central, and Karissa McLaughlin and Madison Parker of Homestead. Those voted to the 2017 IBCA/Subway Supreme 15 Underclass girls’ team are: Jorie Allen of Bedford North Lawrence, Jenasae Bishop of East Chicago Central, Mackenzie Blazek of Whiteland, Leigha Brown of DeKalb, Nia Clark of Ben Davis, Amy Dilk of Carmel, Katlyn Gilbert of Heritage Christian, Emily Kiser of Noblesville, Maddie Nolan of Zionsville, Sydney Parrish of Hamilton Southeastern, Kayana Traylor of Martinsville, Angel Baker and Michaela White of Pike, and Rikki Harris and Ajah Stallings of North Central. The IBCA/Subway All-State teams are selected through a process organized by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and presented by Subway Restaurants of Indiana.
All IBCA-member head coaches have the opportunity to nominate players from their schools or opposing schools. A panel of 22 IBCA coaches (16 from the traditional non-class regional areas, plus six district representatives — two each from IHSAA Districts 1, 2 and 3), then meets to review those nominations, vote and finalize the selections. Subway Restaurants of Indiana once again is making a financial contribution to the IBCA Scholarship Fund as the presenting partner of the IBCA all-state teams. As part of the partnership, Subway will provide plaques to Supreme 15 honorees and certificates to players receiving Large School All-State, Small School All-State or Honorable Mention all-state recognition. Those items will be available to each recipient’s coach at the annual IBCA Clinic in April, allowing her coach to present the award to each player. The IBCA thanks Subway Restaurants for being a partner in this annual project.
