Tech High School will be the site of the second annual Indiana Scholastic Play-by-Play Classic, a four-game event that will feature some of the top teams and players in the state. A look at the schedule:
Bishop Luers (7-6) vs. East Chicago Central (8-6), 3 p.m.: Junior guard James Blackmon Jr. (Indiana recruit) is one of the state's leading scorers. He's opposed by East Chicago Central standout sophomore guard Hyron Edwards, who has offers from Illinois, Indiana and Purdue. Freshmen to watch in this game are Luers' guard Vijay Blackmon and ECC's 6-4 Damien Jefferson.
Lake Central (9-5) vs. Cathedral (12-5), 4:45 p.m.: After a 3-4 start, Lake Central has won six of seven. The Indians are led by senior Mike Miklusak and juniors Tyler Wideman and Tye Wilburn. Cathedral, which has won six in row, hosts red-hot Gary Bowman on Friday night. The Irish are led by seniors Collin Hartman (Indiana) and Mo Evans (IPFW), and sophomore Jalen Coleman.
Pike (14-2) vs. Fort Wayne Northrop (15-3), 6:30 p.m.: Get the track shoes ready for what should be a guard-led, up-tempo game. Northrop is led by twins Bryson (Purdue) and Brenton Scott (Indiana State). Pike's Jordan Pickett (Loyola), Taishaun Johnson and Zavier Turner (Ball State) make up one of the best guard trios in the state.
Tech (15-3) vs. Warren Central (8-6), 8 p.m.: Tech continues with a tough stretch of games that has resulted in losses to Cathedral and Hamilton Southeastern. Juniors Trey Lyles (19.0 ppg), Jeremie Tyler (13.5 ppg) and Mike Jones (9.3 ppg) lead Tech, while Warren Central counters with senior Devin Davis (Indiana) and juniors Jaraan Lands and Jordan Garnett.
