Peyton Trexler led Southwood to its second consecutive sectional championship. Tyler Kramer sparked Southwestern (Hanover) to its first sectional crown in 20 years. Israel Nash didn’t go down without a fight for Monroe Central.
            Those three athletes are the honorees in the IBCA/Subway Player of the Week program for the week of Feb. 26-March 3.
            Trexler is the winner for District 1 in the program coordinated by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association. Nash is the recipient for District 2. Kramer received accolades for District 3.
            The 6-0 Trexler averaged 28.7 points and 3.3 assists in keying Southwood to three victories and a Class A sectional title at Lafayette Central Catholic. The senior guard opened with 30 points, four assists and two steals in a 97-31 runaway over Clinton Central. Trexler tallied 27 points with two assists and three steals in a 70-66 decision over host Lafayette Central Catholic. He concluded with 29 points, four assists and five steals as the Knights (22-3) topped Frontier 96-42 for the crown. Over three games, Trexler hit 34-of-52 field goals, 7-of-13 3-pointers and 11-of-12 free throws.
            Kramer netted an average of 28.3 points as Southwestern (Hanover) won three times to claim a Class 2A crown on their own court. The 5-11 junior poured 30 points with two rebounds and five steals in a 69-53 victory over South Ripley. He provided 26 points and three assists in a 69-46 semifinal triumph over South Decatur. Kramer netted 29 points with three rebounds and three assists as the Rebels (24-2) beat Switzerland County 53-44 for the program’s first sectional trophy since 1998. He converted 28 field goals, including eight 3-pointers, plus 21 free throws en route to his big week.
            The 5-11 Nash erupted for 42 points plus six rebounds, four assists and two steals, but it was not enough as Monroe Central (11-11) dropped a 72-64 decision to Class 2A defending state champion Frankton in the Lapel Sectional. The game was Nash’s third of the season with 40 or more points, and the senior guard converted 14-of-24 from the floor, 5-of-9 from distance and 9-of-12 from the line in his final high school contest.
            This is the 10th season for the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association Player of the Week program and the sixth season it is presented by Subway Restaurants of Indiana, a banner sponsor of the IBCA. Subway, in its seventh season as an IBCA sponsor, encourages athletes to “train hard and eat fresh.”
            Player of the Week winners generally are chosen each week from each of the IHSAA’s three districts. The girls’ season is now complete. Boys’ winners will be chosen through the week following March 24.
