Whitman selected to play in North/South Indiana All-Star Classic game

Tuesday, March 23, 2004

The postseason recognition has begun for Northview senior basketball star Logan Whitman.

Whitman was recently selected to participate in the North/South Indiana All-Star Classic basketball game at Greenfield-Central High School on Sunday, April 4.

The contest will be part of a doubleheader that also will include a girls' all-star game.

The games, sponsored by Hoosier Basketball Magazine, already includes a 'who's who' of Indiana High School basketball on the rosters.

In the boy's game, Indianapolis Bishop Chatard coach Dan Archer, the 2003 AAA state championship coach, will lead the North boys squad in the 4 p.m. game. His roster will include three of the state's top six scorers with Indianapolis Broad Ripple's George Hill, an IUPUI recruit leading the way with his 36.2 ppg.

Hill will be joined by an impressive group of teammates including Indiana University recruit James Hardy of Fort Wayne Elmhurst, the fourth-leading scorer in the state at 27 ppg. along with Jason Jamerson of Muncie Burris (25.4 ppg.) and Butler recruit Gary Patterson of Hammond Bishop Noll.

Greenfield-Central head coach Dan Carmony will take the reigns of the South squad that will include the Indiana State-bound Whitman who scored more than 1,500 points in his Northview career and helped lead his team to the regional championship game this season.

Whitman averaged 22.1 ppg. this season and will be joined by Butler-bound A.J. Graves of White River Valley (23.2 ppg.). Among their teammates will be 6'7 Iowa recruit J.R. Angle from Indian Creek (27.2 ppg.), Blake Snodgrass of North Harrison (25.3 ppg.), Brandon Ray of Perry Meridian (22.8) along with Carmony's son Keegan Carmony (21.1 ppg.) and Courtney Lee of Pike (20.9 ppg.).

In the 2 p.m. girls contest, there will be a wealth of players headed to Indiana based colleges including Ball State-bound Julie DeMuth of Merrillville and Butler signees Ashley Conner of North Central-Marion and Cassie Freeman of Heritage Christian. Evansville recruits Courtney Felke from Rochester and Rebekah Parker of Tippecanoe Valley along with Rachel Kenney (IUPUI) of Mooresville.

On the North squad, along with Conner, DeMuth, Felke, Freeman and Parker are Amber Jackson of AAA state champion Brebeuf Jesuit, Kristen Miller of A state champion Tri-Central and high scoring Whitney Frame of Randolph Southern, the state's fourth leading scorer at 26 pp.

Competing on the South squad will be Wisconsin-bound Janese Banks of Ben Davis along with Kenney and prolific scorers Allison Hughes of North Vermillion, the second leading scorer in the state (29 ppg.) and Ashley Cazee of Martinsville (23.4 ppg.).

Two-time state champion Kathie Layden (Tri-Central) will lead the North girls and Allen Cooper of New Palestine will coach the South.
