Last week was good for two of the area's top junior boys basketball players. OK, it was very, very good.

Lake Central's Glenn Robinson III and Bowman Academy's DeJuan Marrero were named to the Indiana Junior All-Star team. They will play against the Indiana All-Star team in June.

Robinson, who has verballed to play at Michigan, was selected as a Core 6 All-Star. He will play in both games against the seniors. They will be played at Washington and Kokomo.

Marrero, who is undecided, was named as a North All-Star, meaning he will only play in the game at Kokomo.

"It's a big honor," Robinson said. "I've been working very hard since last year because I really wanted to make this team. Not only did I make the team but being on the Core 6 means even more. I get to play in both games.

"It will be an honor to play against BJ (Lew Wallace's Branden Dawson) and (Indianapolis Pike's Marquis) Teague."

Robinson's father was the Indiana Mr. Basketball in 1991 and the Roosevelt standout led Indiana to a sweep of Kentucky that summer.

"That's the big goal," his son said. "I have to keep working hard every day and practice with the mindset to make the team next year. That would be a big honor."

Robinson averaged 22.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.5 assist this past winter. He scored a career-high 39 points against E.C. Central and also scored 60 points in two sectional games against Lowell and Munster.

Marrero also averaged 22.1 points and 15.3 rebounds for Bowman this past season.

Bowman coach Marvin Rea was pleased that another one of his Eagles was able to get selected and recognized for a state-wide team like this.

"Rico has worked hard and he continues to work hard to improve his game," Rea said. "It's great that the people in Indianapolis have seen his talent and are giving him an opportunity to play in this game.

"We're honored to have another Bowman player recognized like this."
