IHCC’s McKay, Hogue return to All-Region basketball team

Ross, Kendrick also earn all-region honors for Warriors

OTTUMWA — Indian Hills had two repeat selections on the All-Region 11 basketball team announced by the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference.

The Warriors’ Jameel McKay was a first-team all-region choice for the second year in a row and Dustin Hogue was a second-team selection, as he was last year.

The other IHCC players who made the all-region team both played one year at Indian Hills after transferring prior to their sophomore season. Ronald Ross, who played at Vincennes (Ind.) as a freshman, received second-team honors, and Jelan Kendrick, who was at the University of Mississippi for his freshman campaign, was an honorable mention pick.

McKay led Indian Hills in scoring and rebounding for the second year in a row. He averaged 18.2 points and nearly 11 rebounds a game this season, increasing his freshman averages of 14.6 points and 7.7 rebounds, numbers which helped him garner first-team All-American honors last year.  As a sophomore, McKay shot 57 percent from the field and averaged two blocks a game while scoring in double figures in 27 of the 28 games he played. He surpassed the 1,000-point total for his career late in the season and wound up his two-year stint at IHCC with 1,022 points.

Hogue also boosted his scoring average as a sophomore, tallying 12.6 points a game compared to 11.1 as a freshman, while his rebound average stayed the same at around 5.5 boards a game. He started 41 games over the past two seasons and scored 740 points.  His 23 starting assignments this year tied McKay for the team lead.

Ross came to IHCC after he was named an honorable mention All-American at Vincennes.  He was the second-leading scorer for the Warriors, averaging 14.5 points a game, and led the team in three-pointers with 65. He shot over 42 percent from three-point range and also led the Warriors in steals.

In his lone season at Indian Hills, Kendrick led the team in assists, dishing out around four a game, while scoring 12.3 points a contest.  He fought through a mid-season shoulder injury to score in double figures in 11 of the final 13 games.
