Butz, Williams named to All-Star team Carroll’s Beasley to coach squad against Kentucky in June.
As expected, two of the area’s best players will represent Indiana against Kentucky this summer.
Seniors Jaylen Butz of North Side and Malik Williams of Snider were named to the Indiana All-Star team on Monday.
Butz, a DePaul commit, averaged 17.2 points and 12.6 rebounds as a senior as the Legends advanced to the Class 4A state championship.
Williams led Snider to its first SAC championship since 2009, averaging 21.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4 blocks.
He will head to Louisville next season and is one of four finalists for the Indiana Mr. Basketball award.
Williams is the first-ever Snider boys basketball player to be named to the Senior All-Stars squad.
Butz is the seventh North Side Redskin/Legend to earn the honor, joining Charles Lyons (1955), Dave Moser (1965), Frank Thomas (1976), Vernard Hollins (1999), Eshaunte Jones (2007) and Justin Jordan (2009).
The Indiana All-Stars will play a pair of exhibition games against the Junior All-Stars on June 6 at New Albany and June 8 at Plainfield. The pair of games against the Kentucky All-Stars will take place on June 10 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and June 11 at a location in Kentucky that is still TBA.
