Return matchups for the Indiana All-Stars as they take on their Junior All-Star basketball counterparts are set for Wednesday, June 11, at Columbus North High School.
In Monday’s first games at Logansport — involving three Elkhart Truth area players — the senior boys whipped the juniors 140--91, but on the girls side, the juniors stunned the seniors 82-61.
NorthWood’s Jordyn Frantz contributed nine points, four rebounds, a block and a steal in 17 minutes. As a North Six selection, she’s not expected to participate in the rematch Wednesday.
For the seniors, Penn’s Caroline Buhr had six points and two steals in 14 minutes.
On the boys side, Core Six junior Jordan Geist of Penn, coming off a stellar weekend against the Kentucky juniors, had six points, four assists, three steals and three turnovers in 18 minutes. He was 3-of-5 from the field.
Trevon Bluiett, the Xavier recruit who led Park Tudor to the Class 2A state title over Westview in March, paced the loaded senior squad to the lopsided win with 30 points in 24 minutes.
Ball State recruit Sean Sellers added 23 points in 18 minutes (going 10-of-12 from the field) and Indiana recruit James Blackmon Jr. 22 points in 26 minutes. Butler recruit Tyler Wideman grabbed 16 rebounds to go with 13 points in 25 minutes.
The seniors did their damage even without Mr. Basketball Trey Lyles. The Kentucky recruit said he has meningitis, according to IndyStar, and has not been cleared to play.
The girls game in Columbus is at 6 p.m., with the boys to follow.
The senior All-Stars face their Kentucky counterparts in girl/boy doubleheaders Friday in Lexington and Saturday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
