Tyler, Sellers, Bluiett, Fazekas are Players of the Week

Quartet recognized by IBCA/Subway after helping teams to IHSAA state championships

 

        Indianapolis Tech senior Jeremie Tyler scored 19 points on near-perfect shooting, helping the Titans to a Class 4A state championship and capturing honors as one of this week's recipients in the IBCA/Subway Player of the Week program.

        The 6-3 Tyler is joined by Greensburg senior Sean Sellers, Park Tudor senior Trevon Bluiett and Marquette Catholic junior Ryan Fazekas as Week 20 honorees (March 24-29) in the recognition program overseen by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association.

        Tyler is a first-time IBCA/Subway Player of the Week, while Sellers and Fazekas are second-time honorees. Bluiett captured Player of the Week accolades for the fifth time this season. All four players sparked their teams to IHSAA state championships.

        A Ball State signee, Tyler added two rebounds, two blocks and two steals as Tech (27-2) held on to post a 63-59 victory over Lake Central for the Class 4A championship. Tyler triggered the Titans to an early lead, and he finished the game by hitting 8-of-10 shots, including 1-of-2 3pointers, plus 2-of-4 free throws.

        Sellers, also a Ball State recruit, propelled Greensburg (28-1) to its second consecutive Class 3A crown with an 89-76 victory over Bowman Academy. The 6-7 forward dropped in 27 points with 16 rebounds, three assists and two blocks as the Pirates prevailed. He converted 8-of-13 shots and 11-of-13 free throws.

        The 6-5 Bluiett poured in 38 points with 12 rebounds and four assists is leading Park Tudor (24-4) to an 84-57 triumph over Westview for the Panthers third Class 2A title in four seasons. The Xavier University signee sank 14-of-22 shots, including 5-of-9 3-pointers, and 5-of-7 free throws.

        Fazekas carried Marquette Catholic (20-6) to the Class A podium in a 70-66 victory in overtime over Barr-Reeve. The 6-8 guard/forward produced 34 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and three steals as the Blazers captured their first basketball championship. The Providence University commit hit 13-of-22 shots, 7-of-11 3-pointers and 1-of-2 free throws en route to his game-high output.

        Bluiett previously claimed Player of the Week honors for the weeks of Dec. 9-14, Jan. 13-18, March 10-15 and March 17-22. Sellers previously received laurels the week of Feb. 17-22. Fazekas collected accolades the week of Feb. 3-8.

        This is the sixth season for the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association Player of the Week program and the second season it is presented by Subway Restaurants of Indiana, a banner sponsor of the IBCA. Subway, in its fourth season as an IBCA sponsor, encourages athletes to "train hard and eat fresh."

        Player of the Week winners are chosen each week from each of the IHSAA's three districts. The program will resume in November for the 2014-15 season.
