Zeller’s 26 points, 19 rebounds lead All-Stars in win

Cody Zeller’s final game in the Hatchet House was a memorable one.

After receiving a pregame standing ovation, Indiana’s Mr. Basketball scored a game-high 26 points and pulled down a game-high 19 rebounds as the Indiana All-Stars held off the Junior All-Stars, 117-113.

Zeller shot 11-of-16 from the field, 4-of-6 from the foul line and also had three blocks.

The Juniors, led by 25 points from Kokomo’s D.J. Balentine and 22 points from Hamilton Southeastern’s Gary Harris, looked to be in position for the upset as they built a 106-98 lead with 5:45 remaining.

But the All-Stars tied the game at 111 at the 1:45 mark and Warsaw’s Nic Moore knocked down a pair of 3-pointers in the final minute.

Hamilton Heights guard and IU signee Austin Etherington finished with eight points on 3-of-7 shooting and added two assists and a rebound in 16 minutes.

For the Juniors, Lawrence Central wing Jeremy Hollowell scored 15 points, pulled down five rebounds and dished out four assists. Broad Ripple’s Ron Patterson added nine points, three rebounds and two assists and Park Tudor’s Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell had four points and two assists.

The All-Stars, minus Branden Dawson and Marquis Teague, will scrimmage the six core juniors and the six north juniors on Wednesday night in Kokomo.

    It’s bittersweet to see this much talent on the floor for the Indiana All-Star Game. I love what it says about basketball in the state but it also means we have to let some go…

    Yes he can. He will torture those who oppose him at Illinois State. I was on his bandwagon for a long time but Crean’s better judgement of Yogi prevailed.

    What are the thoughts on Yogis play? Looks like he didnt do much? Also looks like Ronnie Johnson got the call at the end of the game – I don’t like to see boilers on the floor over hoosiers.

    I am still kinda surprised that Ballentine isn’t getting more BCS school interest.  I know that Michigan was looking at him, but they seem to have cooled.  He had a rough state championship game, but the kid is a great ballplayer.

    Did anyone else notice that after Zeller (26), Teague (24), Dawson (19), all McDonald’s All Americans, Moore (14), the PG with the ball and the recipient of Teague’s passes, the fifth leading scorer was Austin Etherington with 8 points. Does anyone know how to access the box score for this game?

    Great game to watch!!!  For the seniors Cody was being Cody and Teague is a great talent, however no one else of this talented group, really stood out until Moores 2 threes at crunch time.
    For the Juniors – Johnson had a great shooting night and Balentine kept me looking at the score card to see who this guy was.  Harris had a good game overall and would love to see him at IU.  Buss reminds me of Jim Thomas with his good leaping ability and defense.   He really looked good going up against Teague.  Yogi was more of a role player and therefore really did not stand out.  Hollowell however had a great game.  With his quickness, ball handling and leaping ability, he and Cody had some great battles under the board. Looking forward to seeing Yogi, Buss, Hollowell, and maybe Harris at IU.

    Looking forward to IU being competitive again!  I recently convinced myself that my expectations are going to be put somewhat in check.  I’m going to stop thinking final4s and championships.  These players may have this type of talent, BUT most importantly I just want to see IU competitive again and I think these guys will do this!
