Boys’ Basketball 2015-16 Review

The boys’ basketball team completed its season with a 14-8 record, extending the program’s streak of seasons with 10 wins or more to 14 seasons. Only 20 boys’ basketball programs in Indiana have an active streak of at least 14 seasons of 10 wins or more. Despite opening the season with only three players who had appeared in more than five varsity games and no players who had ever started a varsity game, the team won a school single-season record nine home games and was one of just nine teams in 47 seasons of Roncalli basketball to win at least 14 regular season games. This year’s team played nine games against teams ranked in the top 64 of the Sagarin computer state rankings and registered wins over Franklin Central, Franklin and Floyd Central. Five Roncalli opponents – Park Tudor, Brebeuf Jesuit, Southport, Lafayette Central Catholic and Franklin Central – won sectional titles. The 2015-16 Rebels finished as one of the top shooting teams in the history of the program, setting single-season records for 3-pointers made (148) and free throw percentage (.778, 305-for-392).

Junior guard Christian Stewart led the team in scoring (18.8 per game) and set three school records and tied a fourth. He scored 414 points, which is the most ever by a non-senior. He connected on 138 free throws to set the single-season free throws made record and hit 16-for-16 free throws and established a single-game record for free throw percentage in the February 28 win over Franklin Central. He attempted 150 free throws for the season, tying the record originally set by Aaron Evans in 2007-08. Stewart’s efforts earned him third-team All-Marion County honors. Andrew Fey, the program’s lone senior, set a record for 3-pointers made a season with 68. He had nine games of at least four 3-pointers made and finished second on the team with a 11.6 points per game average. Junior center Collin Sonderman finished third on the team in scoring (10.5 per game) and led the team in rebounding at 6.9 boards per game. Sonderman was an honorable mention All-Marion County selection. Stewart and Fey shared team MVP honors, while sophomore Logan Schott earned the team’s mental attitude award. Additionally, Stewart was named an honorable mention Underclassmen All-State selection by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association (IBCA). He is scheduled to participate in the IBCA Top 100 Underclassmen workout this summer. Fey was named honorable mention Academic All-State and was picked to play in the City/County All-Star Game
