Munster, 6-7, Sr., Forward
By the Numbers: 15.4 ppg, 7.4 rpg.
The Skinny: Solid, crafty inside player, whose numbers will definitely go up this year for the Mustangs. Bubash is just the kind of player you like to start out with if you’re building a team. He scores, he plays defense and he gets rebounds.
Munster, 6-3, Sr., Guard
By the Numbers: 10.5 ppg, 4.1 apg, 4.0 rpg.
The Skinny: A three-year starter, Schlotman signed with Davidson last season. He is strong and deceptively quick. He is another linchpin for Munster. His numbers, too, will go up this year.
Lake Central, 6-7, Jr., Center
By the Numbers: 13.1 ppg, 7.1 rpg.
The Skinny: Wideman, who weighs around 240 pounds, is so solid and durable that most high school teams don’t have anyone that can body up with him. He runs the court well for his size. Without Glenn Robinson III in the picture, expect a lot of Robinson’s points to go to Wideman.
Wallace, 6-3, Sr., Forward
By the Numbers: 18.1 ppg, 7.1 rpg.
The Skinny: Great high school midrange player. Cooper was dynamite in the loss to Mishawaka Marian in the Plymouth Regional last year. It’s hard to project him at the next level since he doesn’t necessarily have to handle the ball much for the Hornets. But he knows how to run the floor and find the offensive seams.
Andrean, 6-4, Sr., Guard
By the Numbers: 17.7 ppg, 3.6 apg, 4.1 rpg.
The Skinny: One of the most efficient guards in the region, according to Andrean coach Carson Cunningham. He’ll take his talents to Valparaiso University next season. This is definitely his team and has been really since he was a sophomore.
