Former Orioles’ hoopster honored

When the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame recently came out with its 2013 Silver Anniversary Team, former Avon basketball player Travis Inman made the list.

Honored March 20 at the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in New Castle, players were selected that were seniors during the 1988 high school basketball season.

Inman’s statistics definitely merited his selection for the team — 27.6 ppg, 10.7 rpg, 52.7 FG percentage, 89.3 FT percentage — but when talking about the honor, he lauded praise on his former teammates for assisting with his success.

“I played with an awesome group of guys and we had a really good team that was like a family,” Inman said. “We just had a great team and I look at it more as a team award rather than an individual award. I wouldn’t have been recognized if it wasn’t for them, that’s for sure.”

Inman led the Orioles to a 15-6 record his senior season, a Mid-State Conference title, and a county championship.

“Winning county was really nice as there were good teams that season,” Inman said.

Another memory that stands out for Inman was a game against Park Tudor in which he scored 53 points, a single-game scoring record that stands to this day.

“We were up by 10 or 12 at the half and our coach said ‘Hey, Travis is hot, let’s get him the ball,’” Inman said. “It was more of guys doing whatever they could to get me open, setting picks, the point guard doing whatever he could to get me the ball, and again it was like a team record. With guys doing whatever they could to get me open, the least I could do is hit the shot.”

Following high school, Inman went on to play basketball at Indiana State University where he won four varsity letters, scoring 1,081 points. He was a Missouri Valley all-conference player and selected to the Sycamore’s all-decade team of the ‘90s.
