2A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL: Park Tudor thwarts Westview title run

INDIANAPOLIS – After upset wins over No. 5 Hammond Noll in the regional and No. 7 Lewis Cass in the semistate, Westview looked poise to continue its run against No. Park Tudor in today’s 2A state championship game.

But Mr. Basketball candidate Trevon Bluiett proved to be too much for the over-achieving Warriors, scoring a game high 38 points and leading Park Tudor to an 84-57 win this afternoon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. It is the Panther’s third state title, all coming in the past four years.

Bluiett, 6-6, who is verbally committed to play at Xavier University next year, simply had too much size and range for Westview to contain throughout the game. He finished five of eight from 3-point range.

Chandler Aspy led Westview with a team-high 19 points. The Warriors finish the year with a 24-5 record. Jordyn Bontrager added 10.

Westview’s Jamar Weaver was honored after the game with the Arthur L. Trester mental attitude award for the 2A game.

The Warriors managed to stay in the game through the first half and looked to be making a run early in the third period.

Westview’s Damon Hershberger got the Warriors within five, 35-30, with 7:25 left in the period on a three-point play. But the Panthers stepped on the gas after that, embarking on a 13-0 run over the four minutes to take a 48-30 lead. The Warriors were unable to mount a serious threat after that.

Shooting was the difference as Westview shot 35 percent for the game which Park Tudor finished with a 56 percent effort.


Second quarter

Park Tudor used a 13-3 run to start the second quarter to pull to a 35-27 lead over Westview. Bluiett did the most damage, erupting for eight points in the first four minutes of the period as the Panthers built a 25-9 lead. Bluiett leads the state with a 35.6 points-per-game average.
