Sisley named a Junior All-StarMarch 25, 2020
From Herald Staff Reports
Blake Sisley delivered a monstrous junior season for Heritage Hills, and now, he's reaping the rewards.
The big man scored his 1,000th point Feb. 28 at Perry Central. He paced the team with 485 points and an average of 19.4 points per game, helping the Patriots win their first sectional to 2003.
The all-state panel of the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association took notice. So, too, did the IBCA/Subway Underclass All-State Team, as Sisley has been named to be an Indiana boys Junior All-Star for 2020. Sisley is part of the Blue Group, which means he is scheduled to play June 1 at Floyd Central against the Kentucky Junior All-Stars. This is part of a doubleheader, in which the 2020 Indiana girls Junior All-Stars will play the Kentucky girls Junior All-Stars that same day.
The Red Group, which does not feature any local players, will play June 3 at a location that is yet to be determined against the Indiana senior All-Stars. The Indiana Junior All-Star girls will also play the Indiana senior All-Star girls that day, too.
There are also seven members of the Core Group, who will have the luxury playing both in the June 1 game and the June 3 game.
The coaches for these games have yet to be determined.
The Indiana senior All-Stars will meet the Kentucky seniors All-Stars June 5 at Great Crossing. The two senior All-Star groups will meet again the next day at the Southport Fieldhouse. Bankers Life Fieldhouse will have renovations, and thus, the reason for the move to Southport.
