Senior Brady Slagle of Winchester, Ill. was named the MVP of the Cavallo Tipoff Classic All-Tournament Team. Slagle lead the Highlander offense over the weekend, scoring 25 points against St. Joseph Calumet and 24 points against Rust College. He ended the weekend with a .526 field goal percentage. He also had 24 rebounds and 5 assists on the weekend. Defensively, he had 4 steals and 4 blocks.
Men’s Basketball Head Coach Todd Creal weighed in on his all-tournament selection, “Brady had outstanding play over the weekend on both ends of the court. He did a little bit of everything for us. He is our leader and played like it.”
Also named to the All-Tournament team for the Highlanders was senior, Dylan Burton of Girard, Ill. Burton had 20 points on the weekend, shooting .625 from the field. He also had 7 rebounds.
“Dylan Burton played well this weekend as he attempts to leave behind the injury filled memories of the last two years. Dylan earned his all-tournament selection by shooting a scorching 10-15 from the field in two games. Foul trouble limited his minutes, or his production would have been even better,” said Creal.
