More than six potential Division I boys basketball players will be at Bowman Academy for the second annual Black Friday Shootout, with five games scheduled.

Indianapolis Tindley will open against 21st Century at 1:30 p.m.; Indianapolis Marshall will play Hammond at 3 p.m.; Lawrence Central will play Griffith at 4:30 p.m.; Horizon Christian will play West Side at 6 p.m.

And defending Class 2A state champion Bowman Academy will play Indianapolis Tech at 7:30, with Kentucky-bound Mr. Basketball candidate Trey Lyles.

"It's going to be a great event with a lot of great talent," Bowman coach Marvin Rea said. "We're excited to have teams from all over the region going up against some of the state's best teams." — Steve Hanlon

Former Bulldog earns scholarship: Sasha Cucuz recently signed her national letter of intent to play Division I volleyball at the University of New Hampshire of the American East Conference.

“I’m really happy. It’s a great school and it’s a great program,” said the 6-foot-1 Cucuz, who began her prep career at Crown Point.

The daughter of former Lake Central basketball standout Bo Cucuz moved to Ohio with her family as a sophomore.

Bo and Dasha Cucuz attended the Nov. 13 signing at Canton High School along with Sasha's sister, Tia. — Al Hamnik

Oh, what a night: Munster's Miranda Mihalic scored 34 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the Mustangs' 84-76 win over Bowman Academy on Monday. Munster coach Matt Backs believes the number is very close to the school record for points, but he isn't 100 percent sure.

There were 52 fouls called in the game and Munster was 39-of-47 from the line. — Steve Hanlon

A distant Times reader: Indianapolis Cathedral football coach Rick Streiff was talking about The Times at Monday's IHSAA state press conference. He was laughing about a column in The Times that said his Irish would win the Class 5A state championship and then get bumped up to Class 8A, which doesn't exist.

"My dad lives in Griffith," Streiff said. "He sends me your paper all the time." — Steve Hanlon

Lew Wallace Hornets are buzzing: Saturday marks the 8th Annual Regional Alumni Games at Wallace High School from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is $5. Children 5 and under are free.

Alumni games include teams from Lew Wallace, East Chicago, Andrean and Wirt. Contact Lisa at 219-902-6911 or Preston at 708-261-3058 for more information. — Al Hamnik
