King of the court: Keisling earns top honor

Senior guard led Lewis Cass to regional title

(Continued)

Second team

Andrew Wamsley, Logansport

Wamsley had a big senior year for the Berries.

The 6-3 forward averaged 11.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. He added 2.3 assists per contest.

He shot 56 percent from the field and 74 percent from the foul line.

Wamsley utilized his strength and craftiness to do most of his damage in the paint. He had a number of big games, including 23 points against McCutcheon, 20 against Winamac and Richmond, 18 against Frankfort and 17 in a win over Cass.

“He’s just a very heady, smart post player,” Skaggs said. “We are really going to miss him next year. It’s not that he did a lot of flashy things, but he has just solid post moves around the basket. You don’t see too many high school kids with his type of moves. It’s going to be interesting to see who tries to step in his spot for us next year and fill in because he will be missed.”

Matt Jennings, Logansport

The 5-9 freshman point guard averaged 13.1 points and 2.6 assist per game.

He shot 43 percent from the field, 42 percent from 3 and 72 percent from the foul line.

Jennings had 24 points against Muncie Central, 22 versus Cass and Harrison, 21 against Western and 19 against Anderson.

“I thought he had an outstanding freshman season,” Skaggs said. “He was obviously another double figure scorer for us. Just his ball-handling and quickness is a real asset for us. He was another reason that we were able to win 12 games and he’s obviously a big part of the future here.”

A.J. Smith, Logansport

Smith and Jennings gave the Berries two starting-caliber point guards in their backcourt.

Smith, a 5-8 junior, averaged 10.3 points and a team-high 3.5 assists on the season. He added 2.9 rebounds and 1.7 steals per contest.

He shot 46 percent from the field, 35 percent from 3 and 78 percent from the foul line.
