STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: Indiana hoops recruiting >> Becher leaves quite a legacy at Heritage Hills, heads to UIndy

By: , April 30, 2020, 2:39 pm

Nets shake in fear when he walks in the gym.

Senior shooting guard Murray Becher, a true legend in Heritage Hills hoops history, will play his college ball in the Circle City and sign with the University of Indianapolis. 

The Greyhounds just hired Paul Corsaro as their new head coach last week. 

The 6-foot-4 Becher is a natural scorer and dead-eye shooter. He plays with heart, soul and steely-eyed focus. Back in the winter, Becher captained Heritage Hills (22-3) to its first sectional championship in nearly two decades, averaging 20 points, five rebounds and two steals per night. 

Becher will graduate from Heritage Hills this spring as the school’s all-time leading scorer (1,443 points) and pass the baton of leadership for the Patriots program to teammate Blake Sisley, a wiry 6-foot-6 inside-outside threat in the Class of 2021 getting Division I college offers. Becher’s dad, John, played at Valparaiso in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Corsaro grabbed the reins at his alma mater UIndy after being an assistant at Purdue-Ft. Wayne the past two years. UIndy finished 24-6 in 2020 under Stan Gouard, who left the DII school in April to take the job at Southern Indiana. Corsaro was one of Gouard’s assistants for six years before jumping to the DI ranks at PFW in 2018.

To The Yoon & Back 

Lawrenceburg lefty Gavin Yoon is ready to fire away in college at Taylor University. Yoon is a 6-1 gunner with a gym-rat mentality and baseline-to-baseline motor. As a senior in 2020, he poured in 22 points per game. He was also an all-league wide receiver on the football field catching passes from his brother Garrett. Taylor is a NAIA school.

Recent offers for the state’s Class of 2021 

Silver Creek forward Trey Kaufman got an offer from Virginia. Kaufman is one of the most coveted frontcourt prospects in the Midwest. The four-star prospect is an early frontrunner for next season’s Mr. Basketball, and won this year’s Gatorade Indiana Boys Basketball Player of the Year honors. 

South Bend Riley junior guard Blake Wesley saw an offer from Maryland come to his doorstep. Wesley was offered by Louisville last month. Scouts think Wesley might have the most upside of any junior in Hoosierland right now.

North Harrison big fella Langdon “LT” Hatton snatched an offer from Elon, a small DI school in North Carolina. Western Kentucky offered him in the winter. The 6-10 Hatton averages 20 points and 10 rebounds per game and can step out and knock shots down beyond the paint. He’s got great footwork and work-ethic intangibles.
