INDIANAPOLIS — The 17th annual IBCA/IHSAA Underclass Showcase events have been set for June 22 and July 15 at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis.
Staged by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association with support from the Indiana High School Athletic Association, the Underclass Showcase events are designed to give exposure to approximately 240 of the top basketball prospects (120 boys and 117 girls) from across the state to colleges across the state and nation.
The 2019 Boys’ Showcase will be on Saturday. Activity will begin at 2 p.m. and will last until about 7:45 p.m. This is being held during the NCAA's new "scholastic viewing period" in June this year after being held in July in previous years.
Area athletes participating include Barr-Reeve's Brycen Graber and Keegan O'Neill, Loogootee's Silas Bauer and Washington's Grant Niehaus. Washington's Gene Miiller will serve as one of the coaches.
The 2019 Girls’ Showcase will be on July 15. Again, action will begin at 2 p.m. and last until about 7:45 p.m. The Girls' Showcase has remained in July, but it could move dates in the future if the NCAA women's basketball recruiting calendar is adjusted.
No Daviess or Martin County girls are currently scheduled to appear in the Showcase.
The showcase events are open to the public. Admission is $5 per person per day. IBCA-member coaches will be admitted at no charge by showing their IBCA membership card.
