Post Leads Rams 2014

After graduating all the starters from the previous season, new head coach Stu Hott and the Shelbyville varsity basketball team, which finished 6-19 (3-8 Okaw) had to find themselves. What they found was a couple of leading post players, Cwenton Williams and Luke McConnell.

Williams and McConnell led the Rams in scoring with 260 and 252 points, respectively. Williams averaged 10.8 points per game and McConnell averaged 10.5 points per game.

McConnell led the team in shooting percentage (61%) and made the most field goals (118). Williams shot 42% from the field and made 97 shots out of a team-high 231 shots. McConnell was the team’s leading rebounder. He grabbed 209 rebounds, 8.7 per game, leaving him just shy of averaging a double-double (10.5 ppg). McConnell also led the team with 13 blocked shots.

Williams was also one of the leading 3-point shooters. He shot the most treys (77) and tied with three other players for the second most 3s made (22). Williams was also the most prolific free throw shooter. He shot a team-high 72 free throws, more than double any other player on the team and more than 25% of all the team’s free throws. He made 44 foul shots (61%), again, more than double any other player. Williams had 102 rebounds.

Spencer Shadwell helped the Rams early in the season, playing in 16 of their 25 games and being the third leading scorer. He finished with 146 points (9.1 ppg). He also was the third leading rebounder with 51 boards (16 games). Shadwell shot 37% from the arc, a team-high, making 22 of 60. Shadwell was second in assists (25). Drennian Martin was a 3-point specialist that played the first 17 games, as well. Martin scored 107 points, making a team-high 28 3-pointers in those 17 games, shooting 32%. Seventy-six percent of his field goal attempts were from the arc and 77% of his made baskets.

Tice Robinson went to point guard midway through the season and ended up leading the team in assists, dishing 59. He scored 80 points and 33 of those points were from the arc (11/37). He shot 66% at the line (19-of-29), the highest percentage of the starting players. Tyler Hendryx scored 99 points, with 66 points coming from 3s and shooting 27% from the arc. Hendryx led the team with 20 steals. Brett Peifer stepped up his minutes later in the season and became the 3rd leading rebounder with 75 boards. He also became 3rd in assists (19).
