King of the court: Keisling earns top honor

Senior guard led Lewis Cass to regional title


He had 22 points against both Muncie Central and Western, 21 versus Winamac and 20 against Peru. He missed a stretch in the middle of the season with a badly sprained ankle.

“I really thought A.J. did a lot of good things for us this past season,” Skaggs said. “He was an outstanding free-throw shooter and really improved his 3-point percentage as the season went along.

“He’s a quick guard for us and obviously we expect big things out of him next year.”

Ryan Bixler, Cass

Bixler formed a potent Kings’ backcourt along with Keisling and Hadley. All three of them made big plays throughout their 20-game win streak and tournament run.

Bixler, a 6-foot sophomore, ran the point for the Kings. He averaged 13.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 2.0 assists per contest.

He shot 51 percent from the field, 40 percent from 3 and 73 percent from the foul line.

“Bixler had the best stats of anybody in regards to he shot 57 percent from 2, 40 percent from 3 and 73 percent from the free-throw line,” Kitchel said. “He led us in rebounding and led us in assists from the point guard position. He had a tremendous year too.”

Owen Ohman, Cass

The 5-10 junior was the Kings’ defensive ace.

“Owen was the guy that got to defend the other team’s best player regardless of the position,” Kitchel said. “At the forward spot he’s undersized but he’s so quick and determined. He’s a real competitor, so know matter who that player was he did a great job. He was also the point guy of our press and was real active there. He’s just an extreme competitor.”

Ohman averaged 7.0 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. He shot 41 percent from the field including 36 percent from 3.

He hit a lot of big shots on the year.

“Against Northwestern he hit a 3 that turned that game around,” Kitchel said. “He probably turned at least three games in the fourth quarter. Most of his 3-pointers put the game away for us or allowed us to be in position to win. He’s a big-play guy.”
