    Fifteen seniors and 15 underclass boys basketball players have earned IBCA/Subway "Supreme 15" All-State honors for 2015-16, it was announced Thursday (March 24).

    For the second year, the IBCA also named Large School All-State teams (15 seniors, 15 underclass) and Small School All-State players (16 seniors and 16 underclass because of ties).

    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, 87 more seniors and 80 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: Desmond Bane of Seton Catholic, Tucker Blackwell of Bloomington South, Joey Brunk of Southport, Marcus Burk of Franklin Central, Parker Chitty of Columbus East, Grant Gelon of Crown Point, Eron Gordon of Cathedral, Kyle Guy of Lawrence Central, Brachen Hazen of Columbia City, Damien Jefferson of East Chicago Central, Rhyss Lewis of Chesterton, Kyle Mallers of Carroll (Fort Wayne), Tremell Murphy of Griffith, Dru Smith of Evansville Reitz and C.J. Walker of Indianapolis Tech.

    Those voted to the IBCA/Subway Supreme 15 Underclass boys' team are: Jalen Adaway of Logansport, Kevin Easley of Lawrence North, Zach Gunn of Hamilton Southeastern, Parker Hazen of Columbia City, Romeo Langford of New Albany, Jaren Jackson Jr. of Park Tudor, Cooper Neese of Cloverdale, Jack Nunge of Castle, Robert Phinisee of McCutcheon, Justin Roberts of Pike, Paul Scruggs of Southport, Tyler Smith of Northeastern, Sasha Stefanovic of Crown Point, Kris Wilkes of North Central and Malik Williams of Fort Wayne Snider.

    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 2016 IBCA/Subway Senior All-State and 2016 IBCA/Subway Underclass All-State teams for boys basketball are listed below.
