Congratulations to the Bishop Luers Knights who have won their second State championship in two years. The Knights were led by Deshaun Thomas who scored 34 points, had 15 rebounds, 3 blocks and 2 steals. Thomas was named MVP by the Associated Press.
The Luers team led 24-21 at the half, against a very determined Brownstown Central team, but a couple of threes by Bishop Luers senior Lawrence Barnett put the Knights ahead for good. The final score was Luers 67, Brownstown Central 49 at Conseco Fieldhouse on Saturday March 28, 2009.
