Edgewood Senior Cooper Bybee was named as an Indiana Basketball Coaches Association/Subway player of the week for February 6-11. Each week, the IBCA chooses a male and female player from each of the three districts in the state.
Bybee was selected as the representative for District 3, which covers the southern third of the state. Here is what the IBCA press release said:
“The 6-1 Bybee averaged 34.0 points over two triumphs for Edgewood (14-8). He opened with a school-record 48 points plus three rebounds in an 88-85 victory over Eastern Greene. Bybee converted 14-of-19 shots, 8-of-11 3-pointers and 12-of-13 free throws en route to eclipsing the school mark of 45 points set by Brandon Owens against Greencastle in 2012. Bybee later added 20 points with four rebounds as the Mustangs defeated Orleans 57-32.”
Bybee is just 6 points shy of reaching 1000 points for his career, and he’ll try to get that (in addition to the team’s 15th win) when the Mustangs travel to Mitchell on Friday night for their last regular season game.
