Tipton's Crawford named first-team all-state in boys basketball

Indianapolis — Hamilton Southeastern's Zak Irvin and Evansville Mater Dei's Maura Muensterman are the top vote getters for The Associated Press' Indiana all-state basketball teams.

Those teams are selected based on voting by representatives from AP media members and observations by experts in the state.

Irvin, a Michigan recruit, averaged 24.6 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. Muensterman, a junior who's committed to Indiana, averaged 22.0 points and 6.9 assists per game and helped her team win the Class 2A state title.

Other first-team boys are Carmel's Michael Volovic, Mishawaka Marian's Demetrius Jackson, Indianapolis Park Tudor's Trevon Blueitt and Indianapolis Arsenal Tech's Trey Lyles.

Other first-team girls are Whitney Jennings of Logansport, Stephanie Mavunga of Brownsburg, Bridget Perry of Indianapolis Roncalli and Taya Reimer of Hamilton Southeastern.

Volovic, who will walk on at Butler, was the point guard on Carmel's back-to-back Class 4A championship teams. Jackson has been selected to play in the McDonald's All-American game. A pair of juniors, Blueitt and Lyles, are high-level national prospects who are undecided on their college choices.

Boys second team selections include three seniors: Mike Crawford of Tipton (Saint Louis), Bryson Scott of Fort Wayne Northrop (Purdue) and Darryl Baker of Jeffersonville (undecided). Juniors Ja'Quan Lyle of Evansville Bosse and James Blackmon of Fort Wayne Luers (Indiana commitment) round out the second team.

The boys third team includes four seniors: Collin Hartman of Class 4A runner-up Indianapolis Cathedral (Indiana), Castle's Blake Simmons (Evansville), New Haven's V.J. Beachem (Notre Dame) and Class A runner-up Triton's Clay Yeo (Valparaiso). The lone junior on the third team is Bryant McIntosh of Class 3A champion Greenburg (Indiana State commitment).

On the girls first team, Mavunga, the Indianapolis Star's Miss Basketball, averaged 23.2 points per game as a senior and will play college ball at North Carolina. Perry will play for Purdue and Reimer will head to Notre Dame.

Second-team selections are Celeste Edwards of Marion North Central (Dayton), Jill Morrison of Winchester (Ball State), Ariana Simmons of Class 4A runner-up Fort Wayne South Side (IPFW) and Dakota Weatherford of Class 3A runner-up Hamilton Heights (Evansville).

Third-team picks include three seniors: Lebanon's Katie Curtis (Colgate), Andrijana Cvitkovic of Culver Academy (Dayton) and Sullivan's Rhagen Smith (Indiana State). Mount Vernon (Fortville) junior Erica Moore and Columbus North sophomore Ali Patberg round out the third team.
