Ferrell, Hollowell, Patterson named Indiana All-Stars

IndyStar.com: Indiana All-Stars team selection is difficult

Harris, a 6-4 Michigan State-bound guard, is joined on the All-Star team by 5-11 Park Tudor guard Yogi Ferrell (Indiana recruit) and 6-5 Pendleton Heights guard Kellen Dunham (Butler), who finished Nos. 2 and 3 in the Mr. Basketball vote, respectively. Ferrell led Park Tudor to back-to-back Class 2A championships as a junior and senior and Dunham led the state with a 29.5-point scoring average.

    Could Hanner have made the All-Star team?

    Disappointed for Yogi not receiving Mr. Basketball, but maybe that is just the motivation he needs going into the summer. Keep the collective chip on your shoulders, boys.

    Gary Harris winning to me is a joke. I’ve always been told that the Mr. Basketball goes to the player who had the best career and has exceptional talent. Both Yogi and Harris have exceptional talent but only 1 had a spectacular high school career.

    No Hanner Perea in the all star game?

    I just hate seeing INDIANA Mr. Basketball players go out of state…especially to a team in the same conference as IU and PUke, but in this case he was committed prior to receiving the award, so it’s not really a big deal to me. I really got the feeling that Harris would have come to IU had the Hoosiers had room for him, but IU has the players Coach Crean wants and I am definitely happy with that. Next year should be amazing!

    Was not eligible.

    La lumiere is not an ISHAA school so he is not able to take part

  • CreamandCrimson

    Nope.  He attended a non-IHSAA school and was not eligible for the team.

    Of course, I believe that Yogi should have been Mr. Basketball, but I think we all need to realize that this class is ridiculously talented.  In most years, guys like Dunham would RUN AWAY with the award, but this year he is only 3rd best.  And the guys from outside of the Indy area are pretty fantastic too, even if fewer people saw them play.  I saw Balentine play a few times, and he can score whenever he wants to.  His team just didn’t require that typically.  He’s going to Evansville, and I think we will not enjoy playing against him the next 4 yrs.

    This Indiana All-Star team should absolutely annihilate Kentucky.

    In fairness to Harris, he was in a sectional with 3 of the state’s top 5 teams in class 4A – the toughest division in the state.  Class basketball sucks, especially when they can’t even spread out the best teams.  Harris shouldn’t be punished for that.  His high school career was spectacular, regardless of the postseason.  Otherwise he wouldn’t have been a McDonald’s All-American.

    Had he committed to IU, none of us would care whether he or Yogi won the award.

    Yes well beat them like we always do but your right this year will get very ugly. We could win by 40 plus in kentucky! Kentuckys just lucky there was no DSR or McGary or Hammons. Man were good! Whats our lead in the series up to now 40 or so. As far as yogi not getting it im not surprised really. Harris had a great year and is a great player. I know they didnt win state but Carmel was just really good that night. Congrats to Gary but hope you never beat IU the  whole time your at MSU. I thinkyoull be regreting not going to IU as you watch us win it all this year and maybe a repeat. With IU and Michigan on the rise MSU and OSU will begin to slide back to the second teir where they belong. Hope it was fun for them while it lasted because its back to reallity.

  • Kevin

    Yeah, plus can you really blame Gary for not wanting to be the SIXTH commit in one class? Even in state, that wouldn’t be attractive to me, especially being as good as he is. He’s going to do BIG things next year.

  • Kokomo_Joe

    Dunham isn’t even thrid best.  I would take G-Rob Jr and Patterson over him and the Johnson going to Purdue.

  • Daburns0

    I feel like yogi not winning Mr. Basketball may have been due to a private school slight by public school coaches. They seem to always be complaining about the recruiting by the private schools. I have always been under the impression that the award went to the best player on the best team. That is why Dee Davis from BSHS came in second last year. I think YF and GH are both deserving. I am just partial to Yogi.

  • calbert40

    I agree that he isn’t the 3rd best player in the state.  I was referencing that he finished 3rd in Mr. Basketball voting.  Typically, a player who averages 30 ppg from a top 5 school in the state wins the award without much question.  This year, there was just so much talent statewide that no one really even thought he was a legitimate contender!

  • Kokomo_Joe

    I get it.  Thanks for the clarification.  I agree and Dunham is twice as good as Kojak Fuller ever was.
