Sean Sellers owns the all-time career scoring record at Greensburg High School and a state championship.

And he still has a year to go.

The 6-6 Sellers, who has Division I offers from IPFW, IUPUI and Northern Kentucky, teamed with Indiana State recruit Bryant McIntosh to lead Greensburg to a 26-1 record and the school's first state title, defeating Fort Wayne Concordia in overtime in the Class 3A championship game.

"It meant a lot to me because of the work we all put in, and growing up in Greensburg it was something that I'd always dreamed about," Sellers said. "Next year it will be even more challenging. We haven't really looked forward to that yet, but my main goal would be to do it again and go undefeated."

After spending June working out and playing with his high school team, Sellers will have one more chance to play in front of college coaches in July. Belmont is another school that is recruiting him heavily; he will visit there this weekend for the second time while participating in the program's elite camp.

"Belmont has a little bit different style of play, but they spread the floor and try to get shooters open looks," Sellers said. "I think that would fit me pretty well."

Sellers said he also plans to visit IUPUI on Tuesday and would like to visit IPFW and William & Mary in June, if possible. Other schools that have continued to show consistent interest in him are Air Force, South Dakota State and Rice. Stanford has also kept in contact.

"Most of the schools recruiting me think I can play (small forward) for them," he said. "They think I can be a matchup problem at that position."

Sellers averaged 17.7 points and 7.2 rebounds as a junior. Had 19 points and 12 rebounds in Greensburg's 73-70 overtime win the state title game before fouling out late in the fourth quarter. He also competed in the high jump this spring, with 6-5 as his best mark.

After completing his finals Thursday, a big summer lies ahead for Sellers.

"I think July will be a big deal," he said. "I'll be working on a lot of things in June that will hopefully help me in July. I'm looking forward to it."

Spring circuit

The Spiece Indy Heat team led by Tech's Trey Lyles, Marion's James Blackmon Jr., Park Tudor's Trevon Bluiett, Evansville Bosse's JaQuan Lyle and Brebeuf Jesuit's P.J. Thompson were unbeaten last weekend in Minneapolis to improve to 15-3 in four spring tournaments on the Nike EYBL circuit.

The team has qualified for the Nike Peach Jam, which is played July 10-14 in North Augusta, S.C.

Purdue connection

Nai Carlisle, a 6-foot sophomore-to-be from West Lafayette High School, has early Division I interest and a connection to Purdue.

Carlisle was the starting point guard for West Lafayette as a freshman, averaging 9.0 points and 3.3 assists. His father is Duane Carlisle, the director of sports performance at Purdue and head strength and conditioning coach for the football program. He's held that job at Purdue since 2011, after four years with the San Francisco 49ers.

The younger Carlisle took an unofficial visit to Purdue in April and will attend the Saint Louis elite camp this weekend.
