Triton Central senior Rylie Stephens (30) has been named IBCA Player of the Week.

As the boys’ season is in full-swing and the girls’ season begins to wind down, several players throughout this basketball-rich state are finishing strong and posting outstanding performances on a regular basis. The Week-12 awards are highlighted by a pair of repeat winners, as well as a high school teammate of someone who already won earlier this season.

Merrillville junior Keon Thompson, Lafayette Jefferson junior Brooks Barnhizer, North Harrison junior Langdon Hatton, Hammond Noll junior Courtney Blakely, West Lafayette Harrison senior Sydney Jacobsen, and Triton Central senior Rylie Stephens were selected as recipients for the week of Jan. 20-Jan. 25 in the recognition program coordinated by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association.
