Impressive runaway win against No. 13 CSI closes No. 2 IHCC's second winning weekend

(Continued)

Indian Hills responded with a Lester Medford layup to stop the run. Roderick Bobbitt then found a wide-open Winters for a 3-pointer to push the lead back out to 19 points in a blink. The dish, coming off a rebound, helped pace Bobbitt to a triple-double with 13 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists.

“For Rod to go out and get a triple-double like that is unheard of,” Peery said of Bobbitt. “He’s been rebounding the ball tremendously early in the season.”

Indian Hills saw its lead nearly get cut down to single digits early in the second half as CSI got as close 61-51 minutes after halftime. When the Golden Eagles (3-1) tried to attack the basket, however, freshman Malik Dime was there as a defensive outlet for the Warriors’ transition offense.

Dime had his biggest night protecting the rim, coming up with seven blocks including several that sent IHCC on the run the other way for easy baskets. Several of those layups led to the Warriors’ second 15-point run of the night as Indian Hills opened up a 93-69 lead with Winters going over 20 points on a layup with 9:12 to go in the game.

“That’s what I do the best. I’m good at shot blocking,” Dime said of his defense. “I have some long arms. Maybe that’s the reason it worked out so well. It seemed like every time I blocked a shot, it got us running out.”

“I know I might have some big nights in me, but it was my teammates that did a great job getting me the ball,” Winters added.

For Dime, finding his niche on a basketball floor might be even more impressive considering how new to the sport the post presence from Columbus, Ohio is to the game. Being part of such a balanced and unselfish team has been trying an eye-opener.
