CULVER â€” North Judson head coach Phil Shabi thinks John Eckert has more to give.
Given the 6-7 senior forwardâ€™s dominant performance at Culver Tuesday, thatâ€™s really saying something.
Eckert scored from the inside, on the fast break and from the perimeter to put up a game-high 26 points while ripping down a game co-leading 11 rebounds, powering the undefeated Class 2A No. 6 Bluejays to a 74-47 win over Class A No. 8 Culver on the road at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.
