Sean May started off the season a little slow, but the big man has begun to pick things up.
May, the 6-8, 250-pound power forward from Bloomington North High (Ind.), scored 18 points in a 46-44 win over Richmond on Nov. 21 to begin the season, but struggled to score just two points in the first three quarters of a six-point victory against Bedford North Lawrence in the following game.
He finished with 12 points and 10 boards and rebounded with a strong showing (20 points, 20 rebounds) in a 51-42 win over Edgewood this past week.
May's numbers aren't quite what they were a year ago, when he averaged 23.4 points, 13.6 rebounds and 2 blocks per game as a junior, but North has more weapons this season.
Point guard Errek Suhr has been looking for his offense more than a year ago, and Michael Davis, the son of IU coach Mike Davis, transferred in from Perry Meridian High and scored a game-high 16 points against Bedford North Lawrence.
May scored a team-high 23 points in a 77-32 rout against Southport Saturday night to help North improve to 4-0. The Cougars are ranked No. 1 in the state, but the win against Southport was the first one they posted in convincing fashion.
