    Fifteen seniors and 15 underclass boys basketball players have earned IBCA/Subway "Supreme 15" All-State honors for 2016-17, it was announced Thursday (March 23).

    For the third year, the IBCA also named Large School All-State teams (15 seniors, 16 underclass because of a tie) and 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, 91 more seniors and 90 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: Jaylen Butz of Fort Wayne North, Jermaine Couisnard of East Chicago Central, Zach Gunn of Hamilton Southeastern, Ra Kpedi of Lawrence North, Kyle Mangas of Warsaw, Jaylen Minnett of Terre Haute South, Cooper Neese of Cloverdale, Jack Nunge of Castle, Mateo Rivera of North Central, Nike Sibande of Indianapolis Attucks, Grant Smith of Connersville, Mack Smith of Warren Central, Sasha Stefanovic of Crown Point, Kris Wilkes of North Central and Malik Williams of Fort Wayne Snider.
    Theos voted to the IBCA/Subway Supreme Underclass boys' team are: Damezi Anderson of South Bend Riley, Johnny Bernard of Merrillville, Gavin Bizeau of Plainfield, Keion Brooks Jr. of Fort Wayne North, Chance Coyle of Bloomington South, Kevin Easley of Lawrence North, Jamal Harris of Indianapolis Attucks, Alex Hemenway of Castle, Aaron Henry of Ben Davis, Eric Hunter of Tindley, Trayce Jackson-Davis of Center Grove, Musa Jallow of Bloomington North, Mekhi Lairy of Evansville Bosse, Romeo Langford of New Albany and Robert Phinisee of McCutcheon.

    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 their school or opposing schools. Representatives from 16 regional areas, plus six district representatives (two each from IHSAA Districts 1, 2 and 3), then meet to review the 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 2017 IBCA/Subway Senior All-State and 2017 IBCA/Subway Underclass All-State teams for boys basketball are listed below. (The same information is in the attached file, if that is easier to handle for you.)
