The 2017-2018 issue of the Hoosier Basketball Magazine was recently unveiled and is now available for the 48th season to the public. The magazine is an annual comprehensive survey of all high school boys and girls, college men and women and professional Pacers and Fever basketball players in Indiana.
Seven high school seniors are featured on the center of Hoosier Basketball’s front cover, four boys and three girls. The spotlighted boys are Demezi Anderson (South Bend Riley), Aaron Henry (Ben Davis), Romeo Langford (New Albany) and Robert Phinisee (McCutcheon). The three girls highlighted in the center of the cover are Amy Dilk (Carmel), Katlyn Gilbert (Heritage Christian) and Kayana Traylor (Martinsville).
Senior boys pictured on the cover are Gavin Bizeau (Plainfield), Jarron Coleman (Indianapolis Cathedral), Chance Coyle (Bloomington South), Kevin Easley (Lawrence North), DeAndre Gholston (Gary 21st Century), Eric Hunter (Tindley), Mekhi Lairy (Evansville Bosse) and De’Avion Washington (Terre Haute South).
Senior girls appearing on the front cover are Angel Baker (Pike), Jenasae Bishop (East Chicago Central), Mackenzie Blazek (Whiteland), Bree Boles (Lapel), Leigha Brown (DeKalb), Nia Clark (Ben Davis), Cassidy Hardin (Center Grove), Emily Kiser (Noblesville) and Keya Patton (Indianapolis Cathedral).
Three men’s college players on the front cover are all Hoosierland High School products—Collin Hartman (Indiana), Brenton Scott (Indiana State), P.J. Thompson (Purdue). Indiana women’s basketball standout Tyra Buss is also pictured on the cover as well as Victor Oladipo (Pacers) and Candice Dupree (Fever).
There are four high school players that are featured with action photos on the table of contents page. They are Caleb Middlesworth (Oak Hill), Jalen Moore (Cloverdale), Ajah Stallings (North Central-Marion) and Kyra Whitaker (Greensburg).
To honor the late Garry Donna, Hoosier Basketball Magazine is printing a nostalgia “throw-back” cover to the 1970-71 season, Garry Donna’s first year as publisher. Romeo Langford of New Albany has a replica photo on the front cover, which replaces the picture of Peru’s John Garrett from the 1970-71 issue. This nostalgia edition can be ordered by mail only (call 317-925-8200).
