Star Forward Otto Porter Leads Scott County Central To Third Straight Title

Scott County Central (29-2) defeated Dadeville (30-2) 69-54 early Saturday afternoon at Mizzou Arena in Columbia to capture the Missouri Class 1 title.

It was Scott County's third straight championship and 25th consecutive win behind senior Otto Porter, who is ranked 42nd in ESPN's top 100 recruiting rankings

Porter, a 6-foot-9 combo forward, filled the stat sheet with 27 points, nine rebounds, four blocks and three steals. He also was seven-of-seven from the free-throw line.

Otto finishes his high school career with 191 career points in the Missouri final four, crushing the previous record.

Keeping it in the family, Otto Porter's cousin, Dominique Porter, added 18 points for Central.

Zachary Medley paced Dadeville with 19 points, which included four 3-pointers.

Central jumped to a 20-10 lead after the first quarter and was never seriously threatened en route to a 15-point victory.

Dadeville, located an hour northwest of Springfield, was red hot from 3-point range, making 8 of 16, but the team's downfall came from 17 turnovers.

The state title is the second for the city of Sikeston, as Sikeston High  won the Class 4 title a week ago.
