Indians At A Glance


The Sharife Cooper-driven Indians made three consecutive appearances and won a City of Palms title in 2018, but now return to Fort Myers with an even higher-ranked star in 6-8 SR Airious “Ace” Bailey (22 ppg, 14 rpg, 4 blocks, 3 apg), who powered McEachern within three games of a big-school state title as a junior. Coach Tremayne Anchrum’s squad adds a trio of athletic transfers in Cal-Berkeley commit 6-1 SR Jeremiah Wilkinson (17 ppg, 4.5 rpg as a sophomore at Hillgrove GA, before spending a year at The Skills Factory), 6-2 SR Jaye Nash (11 ppg, 6 apg at Tennessee Div. II-AA state runner-up Memphis Briarcrest) and 6-5 SR John McQueen (Langston Hughes GA), who join forces with returning 6-4 SR Moses Hipps … The status of 6-10 JR J.D. Palm (kidney transplant), a national top-20 talent before his illness, is unknown. … McEachern piled up a 15-game unbeaten streak – including a 42-point rout of Hillgrove in the region final and wins over Florida powers Oak Ridge and Calvary Christian – after two setbacks at the King Cotton Classic, until its 79-71 quarterfinal loss to eventual state champion Wheeler. … Bailey poured in 40 points during the SLAM Summer Classic at New York City’s famed Rucker Park.
