IBCA/Franciscan Health boys’ all-state honors set
Fifteen seniors and 15 underclass boys basketball players have earned IBCA/Franciscan Health “Supreme 15” All-State honors for 2021-22.
The IBCA also named Large School All-State teams (15 seniors, 15 underclass) and Small School All-State teams (15 seniors, 15 underclass).

Players who make the Supreme 15 are not considered for Large School or Small School honors.

The IBCA/Franciscan Health All-State teams are selected through a process organized by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and presented by Franciscan Health Sports Medicine. All IBCA-member head coaches have the opportunity to nominate players. A panel of 20 IBCA coaches — 16 from the current regional areas, three district representatives (one each from IHSAA Districts 1, 2 and 3) and the committee chairman — then meets to review the nominations, vote and finalize the selections.
Those on the IBCA all-state committee for 2022 included chairman David Wood, former coach at West Lafayette, plus Matt Kostoff of Fort Wayne Bishop Dwenger in District 1, Chris Hawkins of Indianapolis Attucks in District 2 and David Benter of Brownstown Central in District 3.
Completing the voting panel were Mike Hackett (Munster), Ryan Osborn (Carmel), Mark James (Perry Meridian) and J.R. Holmes (Bloomington South) in Class 4A; Robb Berger (Mishawaka Marian), Aaron Wolfe (NorthWood), Todd Howard (Brebeuf Jesuit) and Gene Miiller (Washington) in Class 3A; Chris Benedict (Whitko), Matt Luce (Wapahani), Aaron Spaulding (Eastern Hancock) and Travis Wrightsman (Switzerland County) in Class 2A; and Scott Bowersock (Washington Township), Brian Klein (Blue River Valley), Brady Days (Southwestern – Shelby) and Josh Thompson (Barr-Reeve) in Class A.
Franciscan Health Sports Medicine 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, Franciscan Health Sports Medicine 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.
