Post-season honors recap
Region Roundball Review

04/13/08 12:03 am by RRR | Back

The 2007-08 season is now history, and all that is left is the review of who was awarded what honor and when.  We've pulled together those honors as a reference for fans, players and college coaches, who are still looking for those uncommitted gems in the Class of '08.


Please list any local awards from your area (all area, conference, etc.) by submitting your honorees in the "Comments" section of this page. Let's help those college recruiters locate the best talent from your area! Be sure to include any links to online news stories covering your local awards.



Miss Basketball 2008

Although there was a great deal of speculation after the performances of some of the top '08 players in the state finals, the long-time, odds-on favorite emerged with Indiana's highest post-season honor. Brittany Rayburn (right) of Attica will wear jersey No. 1 when the All-Stars suit up for their annual games against Kentucky this June. The Purdue signee received 119 of 309 votes in the Indianapolis Star's voting by coaches and media. Briana Bass (Tennessee) of North Central received 47 votes, while Danielle Havel (De Paul) of Carmel and Maggie Boyer (Miami) of Lebanon both received 15 votes each. As a senior, Rayburn averaged 28.7 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. At 6'0, Rayburn will be expected to make an immediate impact for the Boilermakers next season. Rayburn was also named the Journal & Courier Small School Player of the Year (for the third straight season). Photo from the Journal & Courier



2008 Indiana All-Stars

After a Top 60 workout that overall failed to impress many who attended, there were a few who raised their stock with some notable performances that day. One week later, that stock was cashed in for a spot on the 13-member 2008 Indiana All-Stars team for some of those who used the workout to show their stuff. Selected to represent Indiana against the Kentucky All-Stars in June are:

The IBCA Senior Honorable Mention list is not accurate. The list has been cut off compared to the newspaper article.

Note from RRR:
You are absolutely right. Thanks for the catch.
