The American Basketball Association (ABA) announced on April 4, 2022 that Indiana Lyons guard Jordan Hidleburg is an ABA All-Star Honorable Mention for the 2021-22 season.
Standing only 5’8″ tall, “The Bullet” — as nicknamed by John Coy of the Lyons Pride — was in the Top 3 on the team in several statistical categories this season: points, assists, steals, and 3-pointers made.
Hidleburg is a graduate of Warren Central High School in Indianapolis, and this was his second season as a member of the Indiana Lyons. He attended college at Ivy Tech.
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.
The Midwest Region is made up of teams from Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and Mississippi. The Lyons are the only team from Indiana in the region. In addition to their regional schedule, the Lyons played against teams from Illinois and Ohio this season.
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.
Preseason games generally begin in October, and the regular season lasts through mid-March, with the playoffs beginning immediately thereafter.
