The series has been going on since 1940 and it is considered a great honor to be named to the annual team, which is only open to outgoing seniors.

Trey Lyles - Indianapolis Tech - Kentucky (also named Mr. Basketball)

Jeremie Tyler - Indianapolis Tech - Ball State

Trevon Blueitt - Park Tudor - Xavier

James Blackmon Jr. - Marion - Indiana

Bryant McIntosh - Greensburg - Northwestern

Sean Sellers - Greensburg - Ball State

P.J. Thompson - Brebeuf Jesuit - Purdue

Zach McRoberts - Carmel - Vermont

Tayler Persons - Kokomo - Northern Kentucky

TylerWideman - Lake Central - Butler

D.J. McCall - Ft. Wayne Concordia - IUPUI
