For a high school player to score 1,000 points in a career is a big deal. It may not seem that way when you look at the Indiana boy’s career leaders and see that three players have scored more than 3,000 with another closing in on that figure this season.

A number, (40-plus) players have scored more than 2,000 points in a career. In Indiana high school basketball, commonly known as the historical pulse of the game from its Hoosier Hysteria nickname that we hear this time of year, there have been legends that we all know about down through the years.

PLYMOUTH – The accolades and pats on the back continue to pile up for coach Aaron Butcher and his Ancilla College men’s basketball program.

The latest headline came for the Chargers (22-1, 12-0 Michigan Community College Athletic Association) on Tuesday, Feb. 6, when they rose to the No. 1 ranking in the National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association Division II poll after three weeks in the No. 2 spot.
