9 local players receive special mention all-district honors

Six local boys and three girls were selected to the special mention list in their respective divisions on the Associated Press all-Southwest District basketball teams.

The squads were announced Wednesday night. They were selected by a panel of media members that cover prep basketball in the district.

The Division II boys special mention team included Bellefontaine’s A.J. Gorham and Tristin Tillman, Indian Lake’s Jalon Tuttle and Christian Grider and Benjamin Logan’s Dalton Greene.

Gorham and Tillman have helped Bellefontaine reach Friday’s district title game against Cincinnati Taft.

A senior guard, Gorham is averaging 10.2 points, three rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.

Tillman, a junior point guard, is averaging a team-best 10.8 points per game. He is also dishing out 2.6 assists per contest. He is coming off a 21-point effort in Saturday’s sectional championship win over Tippecanoe.
