Coaches watch Bentley

Junior Alex Bentley of Indianapolis Ben Davis is averaging 15.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists for the 21-1 Giants.
Sophomore point guard Courtney Moses is averaging 14.7 points per game, shooting .615 from the field (96-of-156) for 17-0 Oak Hill (IN). She also averages 14-of-27 from the perimeter (.519) and 44-of-54 from the free throw line (.815), 5.4 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 2.5 steals per game.
