Devontae Wilson isn't doing this on his own.
He's glad for that. The Battery Creek High School sophomore thinks the Dolphins are playing more as a team than they did a season ago.
Wilson and teammate Yuneek Crittendon lead Battery Creek in scoring, at 12.5 points per game. But Wilson said he doesn't look at the numbers.
After starting as a freshman, Wilson worked to improve his jumping ability and pull-up jump shot. His work is for the team, he said.
"We don't care who scores the most," he said. "I always look to my team. I can't win by myself."
Battery Creek is 10-10 on the season and 8-3 in Region 6-AA entering tonight's region matchup with North Charleston. Coach Antoine Youmans believes a victory could help the Dolphins secure the No. 2 seed and a home playoff game.
And that's what Wilson and his teammates have in mind.
"Go far in the playoffs, that's all we're looking for," Wilson said. "We're a pretty good team."
The Beaufort Gazette and The Island Packet caught up with Wilson this week and ran him through the Two-Minute Drill.
