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.
