Ernie Duncan left off Indiana All-Star team

No one works harder than Harrison’s Ernie Duncan, who started at the point for the Warriors from the first game of his freshman year. His hard work was rewarded as he was named an Indiana South member of the 18-member Junior All-Stars last year.

But Duncan was left off the 13-member Indiana All-Star senior team announced on Thursday.

In fact, no area player was named to the boys’ team. It’s a shame, but not surprising. Once again, the rest of the state forgets that Southwestern Indiana exists, unless your last name is Zeller.

Bosse’s Perry Fairrow emerged as the state’s fifth-leading scorer with a 26.6 average, but played in the shadow of JaQuan Lyle earlier in his career.

Memorial’s Adam Eberhard is an Indiana South Junior star. Here’s hoping he will meet a better fate next year than Duncan did this season.

Duncan was named to the Associated Press all-state third team on Wednesday. Fairrow and Eberhard received high honorable mention.

While I’m on my soapbox, just wanted to pass along that it’s a travesty that Princeton sophomore Jackie Young only received high honorable mention on the AP girls’ team. She’s already been offered a scholarship by Notre Dame, for crying out loud, and she can’t even be named third team all-state? Good grief, Charlie Brown.
