Men’s basketball: Recruit Dunham third in Mr. Basketball voting

Butler men’s basketball commit Kellen Dunham finished third in the voting for the Indianapolis Star’s Mr. Basketball award.

Gary Harris of Hamilton Southeastern High School won the award, while Park Tudor High School’s Yogi Ferrell finished runner-up in the voting. The results were released last Sunday.

Dunham was also announced as a member of the 2012 Indiana All-Stars team last Monday. Only 13 senior players are chosen for the team each year.

The 6-foot-5, 175-pound shooting guard recently completed his final season at Pendleton Heights High School and led the state in scoring average with 29.5 points per game.

Dunham is ranked 78th on this year’s ESPNU 100, a list of the top-ranked high school basketball players in the nation.

On Monday, Dunham also announced via Twitter that he would be wearing No. 24 at Butler next season.

The last two Bulldogs to wear those digits were forward Brian Ligon, a 2007 graduate, and forward Avery Jukes, a 2010 graduate.
