My picks for the IHSAA Girl's State Finals

Class 1A







Lafayette Central Catholic lost assistant coach Jeff Dienhart to cystic fibrosis this past week but the Lady Knights came



back from eight down with 55 seconds to go to down Oregon Davis.



The key playmaker: Senior guard Emily Burks.



Top performers: Cameron Onken, Junior Guard and senior Angela Tharp

Barr Reeve came back from 20 down to out Jac-Cen-Del to remain the only undefeated team in the state.



Top players: Olivia Carroll had 21 points and Tiara Kenney 17.



State Champion: Lafayette Central Catholic

Class 2A



Heritage Christian is a very balanced team but led by Taysha Harris whom has Kentucky as a key prize next season.



Peyton Fallis, Allison Schofield, Darby Forsman (Indiana recruit) and Kaitlyn Gilbert are key to HC's success.



Fort Wayne Canterbury's Darby Maggard makes her fourth consecutive appearance in the state finals.



Last season was a loss in Class 1A. This season is the programs first in Class 2A.



Mason VanHouten led the team with 20 points Saturday, hitting 4-of-8 from three-point range. Katherine Smith posted a double-double (10 points, 12 rebounds) and Alexa Habig pulled down nine rebounds.



State Champion:  Heritage Christian





Class 3A



Princeton's Tigers are in the state final behind Notre Dame verbal Jackie Young. Young became the all-time single season points scored record holder as she passed Abby Conklin.



While Young is a elite athlete she gets help from 6' Brooke James. Hannah Brewer, 5'9, junior is another option. This year  Princeton's first sectional title since 1997.



Tippecanoe Valley downed Rochester a school only six miles down the road  from one another for the semi-state win.



TV's top performers: The Vikings were led in scoring by sophomore guard Meredith Brouyette, who scored 19 points in the win. Valley also received big contributions from sophomore Anne Secrest, who had 16 points, and senior guard Taylor Trippedi, 14 points



State Champion:  Princeton





Class 4A



Columbus North returns to the state finals for the first time in four years. In those four years one player has been common, Notre Dame bound and 2015 Miss Basketball Ali Patberg.



Patberg finished runner-up four years ago.

German headlines IBCA/Subway Players of the Week

Gary 21st Century standout averages 40.0 points, 9.5 rebounds for week of Feb. 23-28

        Gary 21st Century Charter junior Eugene German averaged 40.0 points and 9.5 rebounds over two games to headline this week's honorees in the IBCA/Subway Player of the Week program.

        German is joined by Southport senior Malik Bennett, Lanesville senior Matthew Husband, Oregon-Davis junior Taylor Kranenburg, Heritage Christian junior Tyasha Harris and Columbus North senior Ali Patberg in the awards program overseen by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association.

        German was cited for boys' District 1, while Bennett is the boys' District 2 winner and Husband received accolades for boys' District 3 for the week of Feb. 23-28. The respective girls' district winners for the same span are Kranenburg, Harris and Patberg.

        The 6-1 German poured in 41 points with 12 rebounds, four assists and two steals as Gary 21st Century dropped an 80-76 decision to Hammond Gavit. German then followed with 39 points, seven rebounds, two assists and four steals as the Cougars lost 76-75 to Lake Station to fall to 9-13. Of note, German produced a 55-point outburst on Feb. 21 in a 101-67 win over Fall Creek Academy.

        Bennett, meanwhile, was instrumental is propelling Southport (22-2) to a pair of big wins. First, the 5-10 senior guard tallied 23 points as the Cardinals defeated Mooresville 77-49. Bennett then followed with 31 points to help Southport knock off previously undefeated and No. 1-ranked Evansville Reitz 88-80. He converted 9-of-20 shots from the floor, three 3-pointers and 10-of-11 free throws in the latter contest.

        Husband averaged 25.0 points over two games for Lanesville (9-13). The 6-0 forward scored 17 points in a 64-57 setback to Austin. He followed with 33 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals in a 74-56 triumph over Crothersville.

        The 6-0 Kranenburg scored a game-high 28 points, including 17-of-18 free throws, but it was not enough as Oregon-Davis fell to Lafayette Central Catholic 47-44 in a Class A semistate game Crown Point. The Bobcats completed their season with a 19-9 record.

        Harris paced Heritage Christian to a return trip to the Class 2A State Finals with a 61-41 victory over Providence in the Jeffersonville Semistate. The 5-10 guard netted 23 points with nine rebounds and eight assists as the Eagles moved to 27-2 with a second consecutive semistate crown.

        The 5-10 Patberg averaged 30.7 points, 9.0 rebounds and 5.3 assists over three games in leading Columbus North (27-1) to both regional and semistate titles. The Notre Dame recruit opened with 32 points, 11 rebounds and six assists in a 76-66 win over Evansville Central, then followed with 21 points, 10 rebounds and four assists in a 48-40 decision over previously undefeated and two-time defending Class 4A state champion Bedford North Lawrence. Patberg capped her week with 39 points, six rebounds and six assists in a 69-60 victory over Lawrence North in the Richmond Semistate.        

        This is the seventh season for the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association Player of the Week program and the third season it is presented by Subway Restaurants of Indiana, a banner sponsor of the IBCA. Subway, in its fifth season as an IBCA sponsor, encourages athletes to "train hard and eat fresh."

        Player of the Week winners are chosen each week from each of the IHSAA's three districts. Girls winners will be chosen from now through the week following March 7. Boys winners will be chosen from now through the week following March 28.

BIG Men's Weekly Release

   

Attached is the 2014-15 Big Ten Men’s Basketball weekly release in PDF format, including updated schedules, results, television information, notes and more. The latest Big Ten statistics are also included in the same PDF. In addition, a few notes are included below:

Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin are currently tied atop the Big Ten standings with identical 3-1 conference records. The Spartans are on a three-game Big Ten winning streak, while Michigan and Nebraska have each won two straight conference contests.

First-year Big Ten members Maryland and Rutgers will collide on the hardwood for the first time in a Big Ten conference game on Wednesday at Maryland’s XFINITY Center.

Four games have been extended to overtime during the conference season, most recently between Michigan State and Northwestern at the Breslin Center on Sunday. The Spartans outlasted the Wildcats, 84-77.

Indiana's 69-66 win over then #22/20 Ohio State marked its Big Ten-best third win over a nationally ranked opponent this season. The Hoosiers have defeated 18 ranked teams in the regular season since the start of the 2011-12 campaign, the second-most in the NCAA behind Kansas in that timeframe.

 Illinois’ Nnanna Egwu has recorded 173 career blocks, and enters Wednesday’s game at Northwestern just four blocks shy of setting Illinois’ career record (177), set by Deon Thomas from 1991-94.

Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan won his 159th Big Ten game against Purdue last week, passing Walter Meanwell (158) for the most conference victories by a Badgers head coach record.

Iowa’s Aaron White became the Hawkeyes’ all-time leader in free throws made (527) last week versus Nebraska. He is the only Hawkeye in school history and one of only two active Division I players (along with Oklahoma's TaShawn Thomas) to score 1,500 or more points, corral at least 750 rebounds, hand out 150 or more assists, and tally at least 100 career steals.

The first two return matchups of the conference season will take place on Saturday, when Iowa hosts Ohio State and Maryland entertains Michigan State. The Hawkeyes defeated the Buckeyes in Columbus on Dec. 30, while Maryland outlasted host Michigan State in overtime.

Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker (1,018) became the 11th active member of the Big Ten’s 1,000-career-point club against Purdue. The Badgers' Frank Kaminsky currently boasts 996 career points, just four shy of the 1,000-career-point plateau.

Indiana’s Tom Crean, Iowa’s Fran McCaffery, Maryland’s Mark Turgeon, Michigan’s John Beilein, Michigan State’s Tom Izzo, Minnesota’s Richard Pitino and Purdue’s Matt Painter are participating in the 5th annual “Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge,” competing for fan votes in an online bracket tournament that helps raise money for charities of the coaches’ choice. Fans are able to vote daily at www.ESPN.com/Infiniti.

Five Big Ten teams received votes in the latest Associated Press (AP) or USA Today Coaches' top 25 polls, including a pair of top-15 squads. Wisconsin leads the way at No. 7/6 (AP/USA Today). Maryland (No. 14/11) and Ohio State (# -/25) also appear among the top 25, while Indiana and Michigan State received votes in at least one poll.

The University of Maryland Athletics Department will recognize the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame induction of legendary coach Gary Williams on Jan. 16 ahead of the Terrapins’ home game against Michigan State on Jan. 17.
