It comes as no surprise that IU basketball class of 2020 signees Trey Galloway and Anthony Leal were named as 2 of the 13 Indiana All-Stars on Monday.
It will be surprising, however, if the Bloomington bound duo is able to represent their state in the annual Indiana vs. Kentucky All-Star series at the regularly scheduled time in early June.
But just being named Indiana All-Stars carries special significance to in-state players. And after the abrupt and frustrating end of their respective high school careers, Galloway and Leal have now earned an honor that they can carry with them for a lifetime.
Galloway averaged 20.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 2.3 steals per game. After missing a few games due to a right wrist injury, the 6-foot-5 Culver Academies guard led the Eagles to a 15-game winning streak to finish the season. Galloway set the Culver career scoring record with 1,537 points.
Leal averaged 18.2 points and 4.3 rebounds per game and led Bloomington South to an undefeated 26-0 season. Leal set the career scoring record at Bloomington South with 1,617 points.
Both Galloway and Leal led their respective teams to sectional titles before the season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As of this writing the All-Star series with Kentucky has not been canceled or postponed. Here is the current schedule:
