DANVILLE, IN – The American Basketball Association (ABA) recently announced that Indiana Lyons shooting guard Jordan Hidleburg has been named to the ABA West All-Stars as an Honorable Mention for the 2021-22 season.
Hidleburg joins Dillon Ware as the two members of the Danville-based Indiana Lyons who were named to the ABA All-Star Team this season.
Standing at just 5’8”, Hidleburg is small in stature but mighty on the court. Using his lightning speed, he led the Lyons in steals this season, swiping the ball from opponents 45 times, at a pace of 2.4 steals per game. His speed has earned him the nickname “The Flash” from his coach and teammates and “The Bullet” from Lyons fans.
He ranked second on the Lyons with 270 points, averaging nearly 13 points per game. He also ranked second on the team in assists with 77, averaging more than 4 per game. His 31 three-pointers made him the third-most effective long-range shooter on the Lyons.
“I couldn’t ask for a better young man to coach. Jordan is a great teammate,” said Lyons head coach Jamarr Keglar. “He is fearless and gives his all, all the time. I’ve watched him grow tremendously over the course of the season and can’t wait to get back on the court with him. He deserves the accolades and more.”
Hidleburg graduated from Warren Central High School in Indianapolis and attended college at Ivy Tech. He played for the Indiana Lyons during the 2019-20 season and for the ABA’s Midwest Guardians in the 2020-21 season before returning to the Lyons.
The Lyons finished the 2021-22 season as finalists in the Midwest Region Tournament Championship Game and posted a 19-8 overall record, 15-2 at home. They were ranked No. 20 in the ABA.
In four years of existence, the Lyons have turned in four winning records, four appearances in the ABA Playoffs, the North Central Region Championship and an appearance in the ABA’s Final Eight Tournament last season, and runners-up in the Midwest Region after being moved there by the league in 2021-22.
The Lyons play their home games at Bosstick Gym, 49 N. Wayne Street in Danville, affectionately known as the Lyons Den. Learn more about the team, including their 2022-23 roster and schedule when they are released, at www.IndianaLyons.com or by following them on Facebook.
