The Indiana Basketball Coaches Association has named Caston senior guard Cam Kline to its honorable mention Academic All-State team.
Kline was one of 263 boys basketball players statewide to receive the award.
“The IBCA Academic All-State program is one where academic prowess and athletic prowess both are considered in the selections,” the IBCA said in a statement. “Items such as grade-point average and academic class rank are considered along with athletic performance in areas such as points per game, rebounds per game and assists per game.”
Coaches may nominate seniors who meet criteria that include a 3.5 GPA or higher on a 4.0 scale and a class rank in the upper 25 percent of one’s class.
“Once nominations were received, an IBCA committee reviewed the information and determined awards for first team and honorable mention,” the IBCA said.
