Along with his 34 points, Bluiett also ripped down 10 rebounds for the visiting Panthers and was a force to be reckoned with all evening.
“I think that Bluiett might be one of the top three players in the entire state, let alone the junior class,” Bonetreger said. “He is probably the top junior player. There’s not a whole lot of people who can guard him. We knew that he was going to get his points, no matter what. We were just trying to stop everybody else. For the most part, we did fairly well. He’s a heck of a player and you have to give him a lot of credit for all of the work that he has done.”
Tri-West will look to rebound from the loss when they compete against Danville in the opening round of he Hendricks County tournament, which tips off Jan. 2.
