Oriole, Bulldog show skills at Top 60

INDIANAPOLIS — Avon’s Conner Funkhouser and Brownsburg’s Trevor Lucas wrapped up their senior seasons on Sunday as participants in the Hoosier Basketball Magazine Top 60 workout held at Marian University.

The 44-year annual event has traditionally been a showcase for the state’s top players. For the athletes, it has served a dual purpose — a chance for unsigned players to catch the eye of college coaches, and one final bid to impress selectors who will name the Indiana All-Stars that will face Kentucky this summer.

Players were initially drilled under the guidance of Brownsburg coach Steve Lynch, before being split into four squads for scrimmages.

Neither Funkhouser nor Lucas has determined their playing destination for next year, but both felt good about their efforts and opportunities at the workout.

“I was excited to come here and play my best and play with some of the best,” Funkhouser said. “I had a good time. I had hoped to guard (Lucas), but it did not work out today.”

Lucas had similar sentiments.

“It was good to get back on the court,” Lucas said. “I was a little rusty and could tell that I was a little out of shape. (Other players and I) know each other pretty well from playing against each other, and we went out and had some fun.”

Both players impressed Lynch on how well they fit in.

“I thought the kids came in and did a great job,” Lynch said. “It was a neat opportunity having one of your own here. Trevor always amazes me with his ability to go get the basketball at his size. Trevor brings energy and effort every day, and that will be something our seniors next year will have to learn.”

That same effort impressed Lynch about Funkhouser.

“Conner is very similar to Trevor in that he does not take plays off,” Lynch said. “He really stood out with his opportunities. He will find opportunities at the next level.”
