Area players, coaches invited to showcase

Four local players and one basketball coach have been invited to the 2016 IBCA/IHSAA underclass showcase on July 12 and 13 at Ben Davis high school.

Seymour’s Tiller Cummings and Brownstown Central’s Carson Lambring and Cody Waskom will attend the boys showcase.

Sarah Benefiel of Seymour will participate and Brownstown girls basketball coach Karla Rieckers will work with the coaching staff in the girls’ showcase.

Trinity Lutheran’s Maddie Roark was also invited to attend the showcase, but declined due to a scheduling conflict with AAU nationals.

The girls’ showcase will be July 12, with activities starting at 2 p.m. and ending around 8 p.m.

On July 13, the boys will go from 3 to 9 p.m.

The underclass showcase events are designed to give exposure to approximately 200 of the top basketball prospects from across the state to colleges across the state and nation.

The showcase events are NCAA certified for 2016, meaning college coaches from all levels (NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA and NJCAA) may attend to evaluate the participants.

The showcase events are open to the public, and admission is $5 per person per day.
