The Hoosier Crossroads Conference revealed its 2017-18 All-Conference teams for both boys and girls basketball this week, and there’s a local flavor on the rosters.

On the boys side, Noblesville’s Ryan Barnes and Xavier Hines represent the Millers. Barnes, a senior, averaged 7.9 points and a team-high 4.7 rebounds in 22 games. Hines, a junior, led the Millers in scoring with 13.5 points per game.

Westfield junior Zach Banks and senior Josh VanDyke also earned spots on the roster with excellent seasons on the court. In 23 games, Banks averaged 16 points, 2.4 rebounds and an assist. VanDyke finished the year with averages of nine points, 3.9 rebounds and an assist per contest.

A pair of Fishers’ upperclassmen – junior Terry Hicks and senior Jeremy Szilagyi – were recognized for their overall performance, too. Hicks and Szilagyi led the Tigers in scoring on the season with 11.6 and 10.3 point per game, respectively. Hicks also averaged a team-high 5.5 rebounds and 0.4 blocks a game.

Hamilton Southeastern juniors Aaron Etherington and Noah Smith also made the team. Etherington led the Royals in points at 12.6 and also averaged 5.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and just more than a steal in 25 games. Smith also ended the year averaging double-figure points with 11 per contest. Smith also averaged 3.7 rebounds and a team-high 4.5 steals in 24 games.

Brownsburg and Zionsville each had three players named to the team. Junior Cameron Alford, freshman Pierce Thomas and junior Reis Thomas represented the Bulldogs, and senior Riley Bertram and juniors Nathan Childress and Isaiah Thompson were the Eagles players chosen. Avon junior Zach Rinehart was the Orioles lone recipient.

Honorable mentions include: Malek Edmonds (Brownsburg), Willie Jackson (Fishers), Chaz Birchfield and Nick Bowman (HSE), Zack Johnson (Noblesville), Caleb Welch (Westfield) and Will Alcock (Zionsville).
