Jacob Gudorf of Brookville High School became the Blue Devils’ all-time leader in career assists in Saturday’s 75-45 defeat of visiting Tri-County North in a non-league boys basketball game. The 6-foot-3 senior surpassed the previous record of 369 that was shared by former Brookville standouts Ritchie Moody and Steve Hinton.
No surprise that Gudorf leads the Southwestern Buckeye League in assists (7.1). He’s done that two out of the last three seasons.
