Hall of Fame Classic boasts key matchups

The 2015 City Securities Hall of Fame Classic on Tuesday and Wednesday guarantees history in the making when for the first time in Indiana high school basketball history two players who have each previously surpassed 2,000 career points face each other.

The occasion will take place when Princeton, led by senior Jackie Young, faces Lebanon and their senior star Kristen Spolyar in the second semifinal of the girls Classic on Tuesday at the New Castle Fieldhouse at approximately 12:30 p.m.

The two leading scorers in Indiana girls high school basketball a season ago, Young (39.6 ppg) and Spolyar (37.8 ppg) again pace all Indiana scorers this season, recently ranked as the No. 2 and No. 3 scorers in the United States in statistics gathered by MaxPreps.com.

Both will enter the Classic already in the top 10 in Indiana high school girls career scoring totals. Young has totaled 2,765 points as of Tuesday, ranking fourth all-time, and Spolyar comes to the Classic with 2,380 career points, placing 10th all-time.
