However, the Warriors lost 87-77 to No. 11 Jones County (Miss.) on Saturday. Winters scored 13 points in the defeat.
Indian Hills (34-3) won the regional and district titles on the way to the school’s 10th trip to the national tournament. They were ranked No. 1 in the country at the end of the regular season, seeded No. 1 in the national tournament and seeking its fourth national title.
Here’s Indian Hills team stats before the championship game.
In his first season at Indian Hills, Winters, who played one season at Duquesne as a freshman (2012-13), was fifth among the Warriors in scoring while averaging 11.9 points.
The 6-6 wing shot 40.5 percent (138 of 341) from the field, 33.7 percent (60 of 178) on three-pointers and 72.7 percent (56 of 77) on free throws. He averaged 17.7 minutes – fourth highest on the team – 4.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 turnovers and 1.2 steals. He started 26 of 33 games.
At Duquesne, Winters averaged 9.6 points, 3.9 rebounds in 22.9 minutes. He started eight of 30 games.
The Huskies are expecting Winters to vie for a spot in the rotation and possibly replace C.J. Wilcox, who led the team in scoring the past two seasons. Other candidates include: Darin Johnson, Mike Anderson and Donaven Dorsey.
Winters is expected to join a 2014 recruiting class that includes Dorsey, the Timberline High standout, and Canadian big man Tristan Etienne. The regular-signing period begins April 16.
