INDIANAPOLIS — Triton sophomore Clay Yeo, Park Tudor freshman Trevon Bluiett and Washington senior Cody Zeller are the IBCA/Pacers-Fever Players of the Week for the week of March 21-26.
Bluiett and Zeller were named winners after leading their teams to respective Class 2A and Class 3A state championships, while Yeo is a recipient after helping Triton to a Class A runner-up finish. The citation was Zeller’s fourth this season.
Yeo, a 6-5 forward, was recognized after scoring a game-high 19 points in Triton’s 59-55 Class A title-game setback to Indianapolis Metropolitan. Yeo added six rebounds, six steals and three assists as the Trojans finished their season at 23-4.

The 6-11 Zeller, an Indiana University recruit, totaled game highs of 20 points and 18 rebounds in propelling Washington to a 61-46 triumph over Culver Academy for the Class 3A crown.
