Three For The Books — Suder, Tracy and Buckley Keep Shining Bright, Throw Fire For 1,000
This trio of Indianapolis area hoopsters added to their legacies as true greats from the prep scene in the Circle City and recently made it to 1,000 points;
Pete Suder (Carmel 6-3 Sr. G) — Signed to continue his hooping career at the next level with Bellarmine University, “Superman” Suder went off for a career-high 33 points to join the 1,000-point fraternity in his Greyhounds’ 66-61 victory over IU-signee C.J. Gunn and Lawrence North last Tuesday. A four-year starter and a multi-time state champion, Suder became just the tenth player in Carmel program history to eclipse the 1,000-point mark.
Javon Tracy (Decatur Central 6-0 Sr. G) — Signed to play college football at Miami (OH) as a slot back, Tracy surpassed the 1,000-point plateau on the hardwood with a monster effort of 36 points in an 81-77 win over Whiteland Friday night. The young man they call “J Smooth” is stuffing the stat sheet for 22 points, 5 assists, and 5 rebounds a game this winter. Last fall, Tracy rushed for 1,100 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Brock Buckley (Covenant Christian 6-4 Sr. G/F) — Signed to play baseball at Indiana Wesleyan, Buckley reached the 1,000-point milestone on the basketball floor last Tuesday in a loss to mighty Ben Davis (Ranked No. 4 in Class4A). He is averaging 18 points and 7 rebounds per night. Back in the fall, Buckley was one of the best small-school pass catchers in the IHSAA, earning first-team all-state honors after catching 12 touchdowns in 2021.
