RAMBLIN' RECK: Will Zeller join high-ranking recruit at IU?

TERRE HAUTE — Let’s talk college basketball.

Cody Zeller of Washington made an official visit to Indiana University last week along with some other top players. He had not made his decision as of Monday afternoon, but IU got a commitment from a good one.

The Indianapolis Star reports that Hanner Perea, a 6-foot-10, 220-pound power forward, will sign with the Hoosiers in the Class of 2012. He’s ranked No. 10 in his class by one source.

Perea is from Colombia, attends La Lumiere prep school in LaPorte and has played summer basketball with the Indiana Elite. One of his coaches said he has a wing span of seven feet.

He is the third player to indicate going to IU in the Class of 2012.

Indiana State commences preseason exhibition play tonight against Rose-Hulman. Players from the Valley should get their first chance to play in a college game.

Illinois is slated to play Southern Indiana tonight after having some trouble beating Lewis last week 76-65. Meyers Leonard, freshman from Robinson, had four points in the contest.

He had a nice game in a scrimmage earlier with 23 points and seven rebounds.

Butler bested Florida Southern in its first exhibition, winning 90-70, and will face Hanover on Thursday. Former Purdue player Linc Darner is the Florida Southern coach.

Vincennes University’s women’s team is ranked 20th in the preseason junior college poll.

• Prep patter — One volleyball team from the area remains in contention for postseason honors.

Casey won the Class 2A regional at Newton and will be host for a sectional with games set for tonight. The Warriors face Decatur St. Teresa tonight and St. Joseph-Ogden takes on Thomas More of Champaign.

In Indiana, the state finals are set with no true Southern Indiana team in the finals.

The lineup:

Class A — Indianapolis Lutheran (27-7) vs. Lafayette Central Catholic (30-7)

Class 2A — Muncie Burris (30-8) vs. Fairfield (31-4)

Class 3A — Bellmont (33-4) vs. Brebeuf (31-2)

Class 4A — Muncie Central (34-4) vs. Penn (38-1)

The Casey football team won its first game in the Class 2A playoffs and the unbeaten Warriors have a home game with 9-1 Carlinville on Saturday.

Two Valley teams remain in the Indiana tournament, both in Class A, with Linton taking on Perry Central and Rockville facing Fountain Central in sectional championship contests Friday.

All of the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference teams will be watching the action from sidelines as the three first-round survivors lost last week: Carmel lost to Fishers 17-14, Southport bested Lawrence North 34-20 while Terre Haute North dropped a tough 17-7 decision to Pike.
