Duncan becomes part of the Hall of Fame

INDIANAPOLIS — Former Alexandria player Sabrina Slone Duncan officially became part of the 18-member Silver Anniversary Team at the Indiana Basketball Awards Dinner here Saturday night.

Slone graduated in 1989 as an Indiana All-Star. She scored 1,146 points depite losing two thirds of her junior season to a knee injury. Her senior year she averaged 21.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 6.1 assists. Her jersey was retired in 1989.

She went on to play basketball at Wake Forest where she was again hampered by injuries.

There were also 10 new inductees for the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame including Greg Kirby, who coached the Valparaiso girls basketball team for 16 seasons. He got his first assistant coaching job at Anderson under coach Norm Held. “He taught me a lot about how to be a coach,” said Kirby.

The members of the Silver Anniversary team didn’t speak individually, but the 10 inductees did.

“Just sitting there listening to those stories from all of the different players brought back such memories,” said Duncan, a bit tearful a few moments after the ceremony concluded. “It doesn’t matter where you play, a lot of us have had the same experiences and the same list of people who helped us along the way.”

It was an experience that left a big impression on her. “I will never forget this day,” said Duncan. “It will stay with me always.” She is married with two children and lives in Arcadia.

Another member of the Silver Anniversary Team was Julie Shelton, who has coached the Mount Vernon girls since 1994, winning a state championship in 2013. She played at Seymour and then at Butler. She is still the Butler women’s career scoring leader with 2,018 points.

The 2014 Indiana Fever Silver Medal Award was presented to Notre Dame women’s coach Muffet McGraw. McGraw wasn’t there in person. The Fever’s Kevin Messenger accepted the honor and reported that this is prime recruiting for college coaches and she was occupied with that.

He did show a video of McGraw accepting the award. In that video she said, “I am humbled and grateful to accept this honor. It is my pleasure to recruit the girls basketball players of Indiana.”

McGraw coached the Irish to the national championship in 2001.
