'Til It's Over: Indianapolis ISU recruit rolling along in senior season

INDIANAPOLIS — As Indiana State recruit Anna Munn approached Christmas with the Decatur Central basketball team, the senior guard didn’t seem to need much of a wishlist.

A college scholarship to a Divsion I university with her preferred major and a coaching staff that made her a top priority. Check.

The best start prior to Christmas in her four years as a starter for the now 12-2 Hawks. Check.

After Munn poured in 21 points Dec. 22 at Southport, Munn can check off almost every skill on the basketball court as well.

She has an all-around game that will help the Sycamores immediately next season.

Against Souport, Munn, now averaging 16.8 points, led her team to a 72-49 victory in bouncing back from a 54-45 loss to No. 4 Mooresville. She’s scored 17 and 22 in the Hawks’ two games since, both victories.

“This was just a get-better game, get ourselves back on track and I think we did that,” Munn said after the Southport blowout victory. “The team has really stepped up this year so it’s taken a ot of pressure off me. That will overlap for next year, too, not being the ‘best player out there.’”

Munn has always been talented but she’s improved her leadership and her confidence is at a new level, Decatur Central coach David Cupp said.

“Her confidence, her mentality and how she approaches the game, she really believes she’s pretty good now,” Cupp said. “She’s such a soft-spoken kid and so kind-hearted she doesn’t quite have the ego I’d like her to have. She’s a great leader.”

After making the core group of the junior Indiana All-Stars last season, Munn should get top consideration for the Indiana All-Stars this spring. Her size, athleticism and long-range shooting would certainly be an asset.
