Tyler also added 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 steals in the game.

For his senior campaign, Tyler is posting 15.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 21. Assists and almost 2 steals a game for the 21-2 Titans.

Speaking of leading your team in a big way – Class 3A #1 ranked Greensburg and Ball State signee Sean Sellers, exploded for a massive 105-38 victory over South Dearborn in the opening round of their own sectional on Tuesday night.

Despite sitting the fourth quarter out in the blow out, Sellers posted 30 points (in just 20 minutes of action) on 13 of 17 shoot while also grabbing 12 rebounds and dishing out a pair of assists.
