DeSutter shines at Hoosiers Reunion All-Star Classic

KNIGHTSTOWN —  Friday night was a time warp for Tri-West’s Lauren DeSutter.

The 5-foot-6 senior participated in the Hoosiers’ Reunion All-Star Classic held at Knightstown’s Historic Hoosier Gym, the movie home of the “Hoosiers” Hickory Huskers.

DeSutter was on the red and yellow Hickory squad and after leading most of the game, fell late 90-83 to the Terhune Tigers. But this night was not about who won or lost, it was about paying tribute to the movie that is synonymous with Indiana.

“It was really neat, especially because it was in the Hoosiers gym,” DeSutter said. “I first watched the movie when I was little and I thought it was really neat. To be able to be a part of this Top 24 is such an honor and all of these girls have talent.”

The Franklin College-bound guard started the game for Hickory and filled the stat sheet. DeSutter contributed five points, five rebounds, two assists and a block.

“I’m happy with it,” said DeSutter modestly. “All of these girls have talent so all of the stats are going to spread across the board. But I’m happy with how I did tonight.”

The highlight for DeSutter on the evening was besting Sagamore Conference rival Kelsi Byrd from North Montgomery. Byrd, the IUPUI-bound 5-foot-9 forward, was blocked by DeSutter on a jumper in the second quarter.

“It’s kind of a big thing for me because I’m so small,” DeSutter said. “To be able to jump up and block somebody like that feels good.”

Ben Davis coach Joe Lentz served as Hickory’s coach and liked what he saw from the Bruins guard he had not seen much of.

“I hadn’t seen her play very much at all and I was pleasantly surprised at how well she played,” Lentz said. “She did some really smart things, made some nice cuts, made some shots and played very well defensively, too. I was very impressed with her defense.”

With only 665 seats in the gym, the court built in 1922 barely squeezes into the facility. There is hardly more than a foot walking space on the sidelines and the smaller court makes the game faster paced.

“It was a little different to be honest,” DeSutter said. “It was fun because you didn’t get as tired because the court was short. It took a little bit to adjust, we got out there in practice and it was rough in the beginning. Once you get used to it, it’s not that big of a deal.”

An impressive four-year Bruins career ends with an all-star game appearance for its second all-time leading scorer.

“It’s really neat,” DeSutter said. “I definitely loved high school, high school was great for me. I think its cool to move on from this to go into college. All of these girls are going to play in college too so it’s really neat to be able with that kind of talent to start off my college career.”
