INDIANAPOLIS – Some of the top high school basketball players in southeastern Indiana have earned all-state honors. 

The Indiana Basketball Coaches Association released 2021-2022 Boys Basketball All-State teams on Thursday.

The “Supreme 15” is the top honor for seniors and underclass players. Other honors include the Underclass and Senior Large School and Small School All-State Teams, and Underclass and Senior All-State Honorable Mention. 

Jac-Cen-Del senior Wyatt Day was named to the Small School All-State Team. Day led the Ohio River Valley Conference in scoring at 20.5 points per game. The Eagles’ star also averaged 6.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 2.3 steals.

Day, along with Senior All-State Honorable Mention selection, Caleb Simon, helped lead the Eagles to the semi-state. Simon averaged a near double-double this season at 17.6 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.

South Decatur's Hunter Johnson is no stranger to many teams in the area. The Cougars' star averaged 31.9 points per game, earning a spot on the Senior Small School All-State Team.

EIAC stars Jackson Bobo (Lawrenceburg), Chad Cox (Franklin County), and Colin Comer (Greensburg) made Senior All-State Honorable Mention.

In the ORVC, Southwestern senior Zach Cole and Switzerland County freshman Cam Craig were named honorable mention.  

The IBCA/Franciscan Health All-State teams are selected through a process organized by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and presented by Franciscan Health Sports Medicine.

All IBCA-member head coaches have the opportunity to nominate players. A panel of 20 IBCA coaches -- 16 from the current regional areas, three district representatives (one each from IHSAA Districts 1, 2 and 3) and the committee chairman -- then meets to review the nominations, vote and finalize the selections.

  • Costume Swap at the Dearborn County Recycling Center

    The Dearborn County Recycling Center’s Costume Swap was created as an annual event offering customers the chance to share and reuse costumes that would otherwise only be worn once. Last year over 800 individuals used the program. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once. Over 1,000 costumes for adults and children are available. Masks, wigs, makeup, accessories, treat bags and décor are also available. All available costumes are clean and in good condition, with many being brand new. The sizes of costumes range from infant and toddler to adult sizes. Costume Swap even has a small selection of pet costumes. Participants are asked to bring a costume that is clean, in ready-to-wear condition, and free of rips, tears, and stains. To be considered for exchange, all costumes must also be complete with original items, including masks and accessories that came with the costume originally. Those without a costume to exchange are asked to make a cash donation to the reuse program. Shopping times and the number of guests allowed to shop at a time will be limited. Visit dearborncountyrecycles.com for more information. Participants should be prepared with a donation in case their costume is not accepted. The program does not operate as a charity. Costume Swap is open to everyone; it is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents.
