Four IHCC Stars Earn All-Region Honors


Four players from Indian Hills Community College, including three who will be heading to a high-major NCAA Division I program after their lone season at IHCC, were named to the All-Region 11 basketball team.

Lester Medford and Roosevelt Scott were picked for the all-region first team, Roderick Bobbitt was a second-team choice and Quevyn Winters was on the honorable mention list.  All are sophomores.

Medford, who is headed to Baylor, was the second-leading scorer for the Warriors, averaging 15.9 points while appearing in every game this past season.  He led the team in assists with 215, an average of 6.1 per game.  He was second in steals with 96, shot 46 percent from the field, 40 percent from three-point range and 73.5 percent from the foul line.

Scott led IHCC in scoring with a 17.5 average and scored in double figures in a team-leading 29 games.  He made 52 percent of his field goal attempts, 38 percent in 3s and 75 percent on free throws.  On his way to Arizona State after graduating from Indian Hills, Scott also averaged 4.6 rebounds.

Both Medford and Scott were named to the all-tournament team at the conclusion of last week’s national tournament and Medford was given the Small Player Award at the tourney, given to the best player no taller than 6’1”.

Bobbitt played in two national tournaments for the Warriors, as a freshman in the 2012 tourney and, after sitting out last season, again this year.  It’s the second time he’s been named to the all-region second team.  He dished out 165 assists this season and 382 for his career, with shooting percentages of 47 percent in field goals, 38 percent on 3s and 77 percent on free throws.

The Warriors’ only honorable mention choice, Winters has committed to play at the University of Washington.  Following a season at Duquesne, he came to IHCC and averaged 12.3 points.  He was third on the team with 58 3s and also pulled down five rebounds a contest.

Indian Hills ended a 34-3 season with a second-place finish in the NJCAA national tournament last week.
