King of the court: Keisling earns top honor

Senior guard led Lewis Cass to regional title


Third team

Evan Ohman, Cass

Owen’s younger brother was the Kings’ sixth man as a freshman. Though the Kings had no starter taller than 6-1, Evan Ohman came off the bench at 6-3.

He averaged 6.1 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. He shot 42 percent from the field, 28 percent from 3 and 90 percent at the foul line (44 of 49).

“He was the guy at the end of the game we could put in and he hit 90 percent from the free-throw line and made great decisions,” Kitchel said. “As a freshman he might not be able to go for 32 minutes strength-wise, but we’d put him in at key times. He hit some free throws to put away big games in the sectional.

“I’m excited about what he’ll do in the future.”

Adam Gruenig, Winamac

The 5-9 junior sharpshooter was the Warriors’ second leading scorer at 8.1 ppg.

Of his 66 made field goals on the season, 58 were from 3-point range. He shot 38 percent from beyond the arc.

“He’s one of best shooters in area,” Johnson said. “I think his best year is yet to come. He made 58 3-pointers after a slow start. On defense he’s always in the right spot and is a good defensive player. He’ll be gym rat this summer.”

Dustin Offenberger, Caston

The 6-1 junior averaged 9.9 points and 4 rebounds per game for the Comets this season.

Offenberger had a particularly memorable stretch in February when he had back-to-back game-winning shots against Maconaquah and North White.

His game-winner against North White was on the “Valpo play” that was a 3-point buzzer beater against an eventual regional finalist team.

“Dustin is probably our best set shooter,” Howell said. “He has a pretty good body for the Class A level and was a good rebounder by the end of the year. He did a great job of attacking the basket and being something more than just a 3-point shooter. In the middle of the year he was in a slump and hadn’t hit a 3 for a few games and I challenged him to be aggressive and get to the free-throw line and the shots from the outside would come. Late in the year he had a string of five straight games in double figures.
