Cannot argue with that list. I would add Taylor Duncan kid from Marshall and the kid from Owen Valley (I think his name is Sienze). They've got game, too.

Yeah Mr. Duncan is clutch for sure! They just got that nice squad. I am not sure he is better than any of the 10 names listed however. It's tough when you do a top 10 list like that. But except for maybe Anderson I think everyone else pretty much a lock in the top 10 players of the Classic this year.

I agree wih your list, although Mahurin has disappointed me this year. He is not tough at all. Does not play D and doesn't go after rebounds. Lientz is the guy from Owen Valley and he is tough. Gant is going to be a monster over the next two years. Xavier and Butler were there last night watching him. Wampler is a kid that if he had 2-3 more inches would be getting recruited, although his future is probably in baseball.

How about Indiana State baseball? Pearson and Lucas of West Vigo have been tearing it up! ISU baseball was ahead of Bloomfield the other night 14-6.

I want to say that I think it is a shame that the Duncan kid did not make all tourney team. What were they thinking? They put Harrison and Anderson from North ahead of Duncan. This proves how much politics were involved. RJ should have even made the all tourney team. Duncan willed his team to victory with key free throws late to win the game against South and he and Marshall put on a freaking clinic on Terre Haute North last night.

Have you seen a better coached team than Marshall in recent memory?? Hats off to them for well played basketball!

I agree completely. It is a shame politics played a part in the selection of the All-Tourney Team. The Duncan kid was head and shoulders above some of the players who made the team. Seems like they already had the team picked before the tournament began. 2 from THS, 2 from THN, 2 from Marshall, and one each from West Vigo, Rockville, Owen Valley and Casey. Casey didn't win a game. How did they get one on the ATT ? I am surprised the zebras let a small school team from another state win the tourney. At least the media can disrespect Marshall by not putting a deserving player on the ATT.

Did anyone see Channel 2's newscast coverage ? They gave more time to the third place game than the Championship game. Was this because North lost ?

Well what you find is that WTWO has a Terre Haute South Biast as they should in my opinion. They are located so far South almost all the way to Sullivan. The give South alot of coverage not to mention they are so much fun to watch and are one of the top teams in class 4a. So it's a combination of things.

Yeah good point it does seem like they selected the teams before the tourney started. It really is a shame Duncan didn't make the team. I would have selected him tourney MVP after that performance to be honest. But no one asked me! Go figure..
