Four-year starter Trevon Bluiett and the Park Tudor Panthers applied the finishing touches to an impressive triple in Class 2A. Three boys basketball state championships in four seasons are no small accomplishment.
In the 2014 finale, Bluiett totaled 38 points and 12 rebounds as the Panthers captured an 84-57 victory over the Westview Warriors. Bluiett led a Park Tudor attack that set a 2A record with 56.4 percent shooting from the floor, including a record 14 3-pointers in 27 attempts. Park Tudor's 27-point margin of victory also set a 2A mark.
Bluiett averaged a state-leading 35.6 points for this season's Panthers, who topped the state with an 82.0 ppg mark. Bluiett's 38 points in the final represented a 2A record. He totaled 84 points -- an average of 28 per game -- in his state final appearances as a freshman, sophomore and senior.
The Panthers blew open a relatively close game when they went on a 17-5 run to start the third quarter. The Panthers held Westview to 31 percent shooting (9-of-29) in the second half and 35.1 percent (20-of-57) for the game.
Bryce Moore contributed 18 points for Park Tudor while Austin Shelton had 10. Coach Kyle Cox's Panthers, ranked first by the Associated Press, finished 24-4.
For Westview, making its first appearance in the state finals in 14 years, Chandler Aspy led the way with 19 points. Jordyn Bontrager totaled 10 points. Judah Zickafoose led the Warriors with nine rebounds.
Coach Rob Yoder's Westview team, which was unrated, finished 23-5.
