Fifteen seniors and 15 underclass boys basketball players have earned IBCA/Subway “Supreme 15″ All-State honors for 2014-15, it was announced Thursday (March 26).

In a new level of awards, the IBCA also named 30 Large School All-State players (15 seniors, 15 underclass) and 30 Small School All-State players (15 seniors, 15 underclass).

The “Supreme 15″ is the top honor awarded, and players were voted to that group without regard to school size. The Large School and Small School all-state teams are secondary accolades — the Large School group including players from Class 3A and Class 4A schools and the Small School group including players from Class A and Class 2A schools. Players who make the Supreme 15 are not considered for Large School or Small School honors.

In addition, 78 more seniors and 77 more underclass players were selected honorable mention all-state. The honorable mention laurels are awarded without regard to school size.

Those voted to the IBCA/Subway Supreme 15 Senior boys’ team are: Pat Bacon of Lawrence North, Harris Brown of Indianapolis Howe, Devin Cannady of Mishawaka Marian, Ryan Cline of Carmel, Hyron Edwards of East Chicago Central, Drew Hackett of Munster, Sean McDermott of Pendleton Heights, Joel Okafor of Richmond, Chris Palombizio of Chesterton, Josh Speidel of Columbus North, Caleb Swanigan of Homestead, K.J. Walton of Brownsburg, Chandler White of Carroll (Fort Wayne) and Jaelan Sanford and Alex Stein of Evansville Reitz.

Those voted to the IBCA/Subway Supreme 15 Underclass boys’ team are: Tucker Blackwell of Bloomington South, Nai Carlisle of West Lafayette, Parker Chitty of Columbus East, Eron Gordon of Cathedral, Zach Gunn of Hamilton Southeastern, Kyle Guy of Lawrence Central, Damien Jefferson of East Chicago Central, Romeo Langford of New Albany, Reontre Lawrence of South Bend Riley, Kyle Mallers of Carroll (Fort Wayne), Dru Smith of Evansville Reitz, C.J. Walker of Indianapolis Tech, Kris Wilkes of North Central and Joey Brunk and Paul Scruggs of Southport.

The IBCA/Subway All-State teams are selected through a process organized by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and presented by Subway Restaurants of Indiana.
All IBCA-member head coaches have the opportunity to nominate top players from schools in the traditional regional structure of the non-class tournament format. Representatives from each of those 16 regional areas, plus six district representatives (two each from IHSAA Districts 1, 2 and 3), then meet to review those nominations, vote and finalize the selections.

Subway Restaurants of Indiana once again is making a financial contribution to the IBCA Scholarship Fund as the presenting partner of the IBCA all-state teams. As part of the partnership, Subway also will provide plaques to Supreme 15 honorees and certificates to players receiving Large School All-State, Small School All-State or honorable mention all-state recognition. Those items will be available to each recipient’s coach at the annual IBCA Clinic in April, allowing her coach to present the award to each player.

The IBCA thanks Subway Restaurants for being a partner in this annual project.

The complete 2015 IBCA/Subway Senior All-State and 2015 IBCA/Subway Underclass All-State teams for boys basketball are listed below.
