Class of '66 Old Fart

(2018) G Chanel Wilson to IUWBB

Indiana picked up its second 2018 commit Thursday night with Georgia’s Chanel Wilson.

Wilson, a 5-foot-7 guard from Powder Springs, Ga., averaged 12.9 points, 5.0 assists and 2.1 steals per game in 24 games as a junior for McEachern High School. She tore her ACL in January, but her team went on to win a fourth straight state championship.

Wilson was on campus this past October for Hoosier Hysteria. Along with Louisville’s Grace Berger, the Hoosiers now have two guards as part of its 2018 class. IU has room to add as many as six players in ’18, but it’s more realistic to think this class will have four or five players.

Wilson adds a guard with a willingness to shoot the 3. She went 59-of-160, or 37 percent, from beyond the arc as a junior. She may be somewhat under the radar playing alongside Quanniecia Morrison, a five-star guard headed to Georgia in the fall.

Quick Hitters: Though the Indians graduated talent more is waiting in the wings with junior G Victoria Agyin (6.6 ppg) and 5-10 Jasmine Carson, a transfer from Memphis (Tenn.) Central, known to stretch the defense from 3-point land. Indiana-bound 5-6 Chanel Wilson (12.9 ppg, 5.0 apg) is the catalyst and Jewel Smalls (Kennesaw State) also returns. Freshman Denim DeShields and sophomore transfer Mikaylyn Glover are key additions for the defending Class AAAAAAA champions, who have won four straight titles.

Tough break here.

http://www.mdjonline.com/sports/mceachern-girls-take-key-injuries-into-trip-to-norcross-rematch/article_d458edca-1a93-11e8-bd85-ffc93a6fef5f.html#utm_campaign=blox&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social

McEachern’s girls basketball team is facing adversity at the worst time of year.

The four-time defending state champion Lady Indians are facing a tough enough test with Wednesday’s Class AAAAAAA state quarterfinal at a Norcross team looking for payback after coming up short to McEachern in last year’s title game. However, the Lady Indians (21-5) will have to take on the Lady Blue Devils (25-3) without forward Kemia Ward, who suffered a torn ACL during the fourth quarter of McEachern’s 81-53 win over Tift County in the second round Thursday.

McEachern may also be without Chanel Wilson, who also left the game with a knee injury. Wilson was scheduled to get an MRI today, coach Phyllis Arthur said, and her status for Wednesday’s game is uncertain.

From HoosierSportsReport.com:   Chanel Wilson, 5-6, PG, Powder Springs, Ga., 2018:  Suffered second ACL tear in as many years in the second round of the state tournament, and McEachern had its streak of four straight state titles stopped in the semifinals last Saturday.

Not a good omen for her IU career.

Wonder if she could redshirt and rehab a year?
