INDIANAPOLIS – Some of the best to ever come through their programs were recognized as Indiana All-Stars. The Indianapolis Star released the lists Monday morning for the boys and girls All-Stars as well as Junior All-Stars. The teams are prospectively looking to play the Kentucky All-Stars in a home-and-home series on June 5-6.
The Boys All-Stars features two area players in Westview’s Charlie Yoder and Culver Academy’s Trey Galloway. Yoder finished as the school’s all-time leading scorer and had the Warriors ranked among the top-five in Class 2-A for majority of the season. Yoder did not announce a formal college basketball commitment as of Monday morning. Galloway also leaves his program as the all-time leading scorer as the Eagles were among those still alive in the state tournament after the Academy won the ultra-competitive Class 4-A LaPorte Sectional. Galloway is set to head to Bloomington in the fall to play for the Indiana Hoosiers.
Making up the remainder of the Indiana All-Stars are Tre Coleman of Jeffersonville, Johnell Davis of Gary 21st Century, Dre Davis of Lawrence Central, Malek Edwards of Brownsburg, Anthony Leal of Bloomington South, Mabor Majako of Hamilton Southeastern, Sincere McMahon of Crispus Attucks, Nijel Peck of Lawrence Central, Tayson Parker of Northwestern, Tony Perkins of Lawrence North and Kiyron Powell of Evansville Bosse.
