Park Tudor senior Trevon Bluiett poured in 37 points and grabbed 17 rebounds to pace this week’s recipients in the IBCA/Subway Player of the Week program.

Bluiett is joined by Westview senior Jordyn Bontrager and Barr-Reeve junior Addison Wagler as Week 19 honorees (March 17-22) in the recognition program overseen by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association.

The 6’5” Bluiett took the District 2 honor for the second consecutive week and the fourth time this season as he led top-ranked Park Tudor (23-4) a Class 2A semistate crown with a 76-64 victory over No. 2 Clarksville.

The Xavier University recruit converted 10 of 22 shots, was 3 of 7 on 3-pointers, and went 13 of 16 from the free throw line en route to his big game. He also added four assists as the Panthers advanced to the IHSAA state finals for the third time in his four seasons.

Bluiett previously claimed Player of the Week honors Dec. 9-14, Jan. 13-18, and March 10-15.

Bontrager and Wagler were respective winners for District 1 and District 3.

The 5’10” Bontrager nearly had a triple-double as he produced 18 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists to lead Westview (23-4) to a 65-58 win over No. 7 Cass and the Class 2A northern semistate crown. Bontrager sank 7 of 12 shots from the floor and added 4 of 7 free throws to propel the unranked Warriors to the state finals.

Wagler, a 6’5” forward, provided 24 points and 13 rebounds as top-ranked Barr-Reeve (26-1) beat Clay City, 75-55, in a Class A semistate game. Wagler made 7 of 9 shots as well as 10 of 12 free throws while adding two assists for the Vikings.

This is the sixth season for the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association Player of the Week program and the second season it is presented by Subway Restaurants of Indiana, a banner sponsor of the IBCA. Subway, in its fourth season as an IBCA sponsor, encourages athletes to “train hard and eat fresh.”
