Honors aplenty after wild week

ANDERSON, Ind. — With the recently completed Madison County Boys and Girls Basketball Tournaments, Anderson’s girls and Pendleton Heights’ boys teams were crowned champions. The Herald Bulletin took time to hand out some highly unofficial awards for some of the outstanding performances and performers from last week’s action.

Most Outstanding Players

Boys — Kellen Dunham, Pendleton Heights

Pendleton Heights’ all-time leading scorer added another accolade to his resume by smashing the Madison County Tournament scoring record with 107 points in his three games.

He capped off the week with a 39-point effort against Anderson in the title game.

The previous mark was held by Lapel graduate Jason Holsinger, who scored 86 points in 2005.

Girls — Darien Thompson, Anderson

The Anderson junior came up big when it matter most. As balanced as Anderson’s scoring attack can be, Thompson was leaned on heavily and answered the call for her team with a game-high 26 points in the Lady Tribe’s 53-51 victory over Pendleton Heights in the girls championship game.

Breakout Players

Boys — Chris Nunn, Liberty Christian

The Liberty Christian freshman surged onto the county tournament scene with a 34-point debut against Lapel in an 82-76 loss in overtime in the first round. He finished the tournament with 19 and 13 points for a total of 66 in three games.

Girls — Quincy Gary, Pendleton Heights

Opened the tourney with a career-high 19 points for the Arabians against Alexandria. She followed that with 15 points against Lapel in the second round.

Unsung Hero/Heroine

Boys — Terrance Johnson, Anderson

Came off the bench for the Indians adding energy, defense and even a little scoring when Anderson needed it most. Johnson was especially effective in the semifinals against Frankton, filling in admirably when starting center Trey Boyd found himself in early foul trouble.

Girls — MacKenzie Boles, Lapel

The Bulldogs sophomore guard scored 19 points as Lapel beat Frankton for third place. She scored 21 points against Liberty Christian and 14 against Pendleton Heights in the semifinals.
