Columbus North trio competes in 'Hoosiers' Reunion All-Star Classic
June 8, 2014Columbus North High School
KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. -- Columbus North senior Elliott Welmer scored 11 points Friday evening (June 6) to help the Terhune squad defeat Hickory 118-117 in the 2014 "Hoosiers" Reunion All-Star Classic.
Welmer's efforts came in support ofBrebeuf Jesuit's P.J. Thompson and Park Tudor's Trevon Bluiett, who produced respective totals of 26 points and 23 points to lead the winning Tigers in the all-star basketball played in and for the benefit of the Historic Hoosier Gym, the facility where much of the movie "Hoosiers" was filmed.
Unusual for an all-star game, the game was decided in the final moments by a defensive play. Ahead one with enough time for one possession, Terhune's Tyler Wideman of Lake Central made a last-second block of Hickory's Jordan Furlow of Speedway as time ran out in the boys' game.
Aaron Korn of Frankton led the Hickory boys with 18 points. Furlow and Indianapolis Tech's Jeremie Tyler each scored 16 points in support of Korn.
Earlier, Columbus North's Tayler Goodall scored 13 points to help the Terhune girls top Hickory 116-101. Miss Basketball Whitney Jennings of Logansport paced Terhune with 23 points.
Kelsey Cunningham of Columbus North scored nine points for the Hickory girls.
These games were the final high school events for Welmer and Cunningham. Welmer is off to prep school, then will reclassify and go to Saint Louis University as a freshman in 2015-16. Cunningham is bound to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee later this month.
Goodall plays next for the Indiana All-Stars in their annual series with Kentucky next week. First, there are exhibitions against the Indiana Junior All-Stars on Monday (June 9) in Logansport and Wednesday (June 11) at Columbus North. The games with Kentucky follow, June 13 at Transylvania University's Clive Beck Center in Lexington and June 14 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Following the All-Star series, Goodall will report to Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers later this month to begin her career there.
