To start our season previews, we will first be looking at the best returning duos and trios in each class. To start, we finish with Part II of the top returning senior duos. This list is in no particular order.
Isaiah Thompson and Nate Childress (Zionsville)
Thompson and Childress are the guys that will make Zionsville tick this year. Thompson is one of the best scorers in the state and is committed to Purdue. He is able to shoot it off the bounce and off the catch at a very high clip, Childress is a guy who works inside but is able to play on the perimeter. He is one of the most athletic guys in the state and will really help keep the attention from Thompson a little this year.
Sam Skaggs and Will Penny (Logansport)
Skaggs and Penny are two guards who are going to have to score a lot this year for Logansport to compete with the best. They will do just that as last year they combined for over two-thirds of the team’s scoring total. Penny averaged 21.5 points a game and Skaggs averaged 19.8 to pace the team. They both can score in bunches and we will see that again this year as they take over games.
Colin Kenney and Joe Andershock (Marquette Catholic)
Kenney and Andershock have been stalwarts on the Marquette Catholic line-up for a few years and this year will be no different. Kenney is a quick guard who is able to score at anytime while Andershock is a wing who finishes at the rim really well and rebound. They work well together because each gives you such a different look. With Marquette Catholic you have to pick your poison with who hurts you each night.
Luke Bumbalough and Mason Gillis (New Castle)
Bumbalough is committed to Ball State and Gillis to Purdue. This tells you how much of an impact these two have on the game. Bumbalough is a point guard who controls the game with the best of them and is able to score the ball much better than he was able to last year. Gillis is a powerful wing who can hit from deep or overpower you in the paint. This might be the best returning duo in the state with their pure talent.
Silas Robbins and Sammy Robbins (Linton-Stockton)
The Robbins twins are two that some may not think should make the list but due to being twins, they have the ability to play really well off of each other. They also play tennis duos, which shows you just how athletic they are.Sammy is a little more versatile than Silas but they are both able to defend at a high level due to their mobility. Undersized forwards but they can really get after it. A treat to watch with how unorthodox they are.
