HS BBBall: Decatur St. Teresa Rolls Monticello

In a game heard on WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com, Ryheem Tyus scored 30 points and surpassed the 1,000-point plateau for his career, leading Decatur St. Teresa over Monticello 58-49 in non-conference high school boys basketball action from the Sievers Center in Monticello Saturday evening.


Tyus' 30 points also set a Sievers Center record for points in a game.


The Bulldogs shot 66 percent from the floor in the first half and led 35-22 at the intermission. 


Monticello could not get any closer than seven points in the second half as the Sages struggled to score at points. 


Trey Welter led Monticello with 11 points. Tyler Blythe scored ten. The Sages shot just 33 percent for the game. Knocking down 10-of-29 three-pointers helped them stay close.


Blythe was the ServPro of Piatt/DeWitt Counties Player of the Game. 


The Bulldogs had 34 points in the paint and used 12 Sages turnovers to score 17 points. 


Monticello's rebounding was not good. They were outrebounded 33-24 and St T's 11 offensive rebounds led to 10 second-chance points. 


The Sages will host Tolono Unity for Senior Night on Tuesday at 7 pm. Hear the action on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com.
