Southwood senior Dallas Holmes was one of 15 seniors named to the Small School All-State team, announced by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association (IBCA) on Thursday.

Fifteen seniors and 15 underclass boys basketball players have earned IBCA/Subway “Supreme 15” All-State honors for 2018-19. For the fifth year, the IBCA also named Large School All-State teams and Small School All-State players.

The “Supreme 15” is the top honor awarded, and players were voted to that group without regard to school size. The Large School and Small School all-state teams are secondary accolades -- the Large School group including players from Class 3A and Class 4A schools and the Small School group including players from Class A and Class 2A schools. Players who make the Supreme 15 are not considered for Large School or Small School honors.

In addition, 88 more seniors and 88 more underclass players were selected honorable mention all-state. The honorable mention laurels are awarded without regard to school size.

Holmes was dominant in his final campaign as a Knight, pouring in 22.1 points per game on 44 percent shooting from the field and 33 percent shooting from deep. He added 7.3 rebounds per contest as well as 3.7 steals and 1.7 blocks per game.

Over his final 12 games, Holmes poured in 26.1 points per game with six 30-point games in that span. That spurt helped Holmes finish with 1,274 career points, third-most all-time in program history.

Meanwhile, Wabash’s Trenton Daughtry earned an Honorable Mention for IBCA/Subway Underclass All-State.

Daughtry averaged 18.7 points per game in his junior campaign, guiding the Apaches to a 21-5 mark and ending multi-decade droughts with county, conference and sectional titles. The guard crossed the 1,000-point mark late in the season. His standout came in the sectional final where Daughtry poured in 30 points, 18 in the fourth, to help the Apaches knock off the Squires.

Like Holmes, Daughtry finished the season strong, pouring in 21.1 points per game over the final 10 games with seven games of over 20 points.
