It’s supposedly spring sports season, but basketball never quite ceases in Indiana.
Today, there were three notable developments regarding local and state high school hoops. Here’s the rundown:
— Kentucky-bound Trey Lyles of Indianapolis Tech was named Mr. Basketball. The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 23.7 points, 12.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.4 blocks and shot 58 percent from the floor during his senior season. He received 117 Mr. Basketball votes, followed by Park Tudor’s Trevon Bluiett (108) and Marion’s James Blackmon Jr. (95).
