Scott, Wilson take middle school boys basketball titles

TERRE HAUTE — Seventh-grade sensation Dexter Shouse poured in 30 points to lead Woodrow Wilson over Honey Creek 47-36 in the second game of the Vigo County boys middle school basketball championships Thursday night in West Vigo High School’s gym.

The victory concluded a 13-0 season for the Warriors.

“Dexter’s played well all year,” Wilson seventh-grade coach Andy Higham said afterward. “He’s a great player. I thought, though, we had a lot of guys on the team play well. I thought our defense was good early. At the end of the game, I thought we looked a little tired and our defense maybe wasn’t quite as good.

“You have to give [Honey Creek] credit too. They hit a lot of good shots. … But overall this was the culmination of a great season.”

The 6-foot-3 Shouse, who has received attention for his performances at national youth camps over the past few summers, also contributed eight rebounds, five steals and two blocked shots Thursday.

“My teammates helped me with everything,” Shouse told the Tribune-Star. “I was able to create my shots and get to the basket real easy.”

Shouse also appreciated the significance of a 13-0 season.

“That’s pretty cool,” he said. “We did it last year too [undefeated as sixth-graders].”

Asked one last question about where he looks forward to playing basketball in the future, Shouse replied: “I don’t know yet.”

Let the speculations begin.

Meanwhile, Cody Deckard led Honey Creek with 14 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, and Andrew Bement added 10 points.

Shouse tallied 12 points in the first quarter as the Warriors seized a 14-6 advantage. He ended up with 15 in each half.

In the sixth-grade title clash earlier Thursday, Sarah Scott completed an impressive comeback season — which started with four straight losses and ended with six straight wins — by outlasting Wilson 56-40 behind 22 points from 5-6 Allen Haire.

“I was using my body to post up,” assessed the thickly built Haire, who plans to attend Terre Haute South High School in three years.

Scotties coach Brad Hamersley credited his squad’s turnaround to the boys beginning to believe in themselves.

“We’ve had the same personnel,” he noted. “Just a team-attitude turnaround. We began winning games by close margins and after that, they began believing in themselves. … This [comeback] is fantastic. I’m just glad for the kids. They’ve done a super job. They worked hard for me and the school all season long. The effort has paid off.”

Sarah Scott and Woodrow Wilson split their two regular-season contests, so this gave the Scotties a 2-1 advantage in head-to-head matchups.

Tyler Brown paced Wilson’s sixth-graders with 12 points. Coach Jason Gilmore’s Warriors finished 9-3.
