Here’s a five-pack of hoopsters from the Indianapolis area you should know about:

Ahmoni Jones (Pike 6-foot-4 Sr. G/F) — One of the most improved players in the state, has taken his game to a whole other level this winter, shredding opponents on the wing.


James Franklin (Indianapolis Cathedral 6-0 Sr. G) — Embodies a warrior’s spirit on and off the hardwood, a resilient net ripper with a sugary sweet shooting stroke.


Tony Perkins (Lawrence North 6-foot-2 Jr. G) — About to become a star … enough said!!


Jakobie Robinson (Warren Central 6-foot-6 Sr. F) — The “X-Factor” in his team’s drive for a repeat in Class 4A, has shown flashes of brilliance out of the frontcourt this season.


Simon Banks (Brebeuf Jesuit 6-foot-3 G) — This nails-tough backcourt gem headed to Air Force just surpassed the 1,000 point mark for his career.
