Dillon—Just a few minutes after the Dillon Christian boys’ basketball team concluded a highly successful 25-6 season with a hard-fought 78-67 loss to Bethesda Academy in the semi-finals of the SCISA AA tournament at the Sumter Civic Center head coach Bo Stone shared a few thoughts about his team.

“We really have seven starters on this team, and we rotated a lot,” said Coach Stone. “I will start with our three captains Ian Bethea, Phillip Campbell, and Walt Bailey. These three players have been with me a long time. They are great ball players but better than that they are great human beings and great young men and I hate this season ending loss for them. They have all assumed solid leadership roles and I am very proud of them.

“Our other senior was Josh Duran who had a good season despite being a little undersized playing in the post,” said Coach Stone. “He played well, and he could step outside and hit the three-point shot too. He backed up our press well also. Our remaining two seniors were role players for us in back-up center Jacob Dubose and Gage Hunt, a shooting guard who came off the bench.”

Dillon Christian has a lot a talent back in the junior class and they should be in line for another successful season in 2020-21. “Our Region Player of the Year and leading scorer this year is junior point guard Weston Glassgow,” said Coach Stone. “He had an outstanding season and I would estimate he averaged 18 points, 3.5 assists and four steals a game. Weston could also play shooting guard in the different sets we ran but when we had pressure on us, he was a very good player to have playing the point for us.

“The other two starters who rotating in an out were Ethan Brewington, a shooting guard who was named all-region. “He is a dynamic shooter and when he is on, he can put points on the board in a hurry.” said id Coach Stone. “In one region game this year Ethan put 45 points on the board, and he is a really good three=point shooter.”

Another good junior was Adam Norman (6-3,189) a guard or wing. “Adam was really the X-factor for us late in the season and he is the best athlete I’ve ever coached. When he gets the ball on the wing his ability to go to the rim and finish is phenomenal and he can go with either hand. He’s a super athlete with the best motor of any kid I’ve coach. He’s an excellent defensive player and he causes a lot of havoc on the floor and between him and Bethea I can put them on the other team’s best two players and hold them down regardless of what position they play.”

 Additional players of note are junior guard Josh Brown who is expected to play a big role next year. Austin Heasley is another player Coach Stone expects to help lot next season. “We had another player who is a freshman we moved up for the playoffs that we are excited about in the future and he is guard Grayson Singletary and he averaged 20 points a game on jayvee.”

In the SCISA AA playoffs Dillon Christian beat Northside Christin in the opening round and Spartanburg Day in the second round in order to the get to the final four of the state playoffs. Coach Stone has coached the varsity boys four seasons now and this was the best team he has coached to date. “It all started with our senior captains, but you have players like Glassgow, and Norman come in and have the kind of junior years they had you just have to fill good about the future.”
