Heaton delivers big, leads Central A&M over Indians
After injuring his ankle in the Regional semifinal, then scoring just eight in the Regional championship game against Nokomis, it was unclear how Connor Heaton was going to play in Tuesday’s Sectional semifinal game in Casey against an Altamont team that was 28-6 going into the contest.

His stat line says enough: 33 points, nine rebounds, and five steals, but his coach also thought he played one of the best games of his career.

I thought when we had them off balance and were driving to the basket, we were successful, but we shied away from that in the second half,” said Raider head coach Tom Dooley.
