Dixon makes winning basket for Shorians

Lake Shore got a measure of revenge in new surroundings.

Ricky Dixon made a driving shot from in the lane with 1.7 seconds left in the fourth quarter to break a 51-all tie and lift the Shorians to a 53-51 victory over host Warren Woods-Tower in a MAC Gold Division boys basketball game Tuesday night.

Dixon scored the final five points of the game as the Shorians overcame a 51-48 deficit and avenged a loss to Warren Woods-Tower in a Class A district-opening game at Grosse Pointe North last spring.

“I wanted the shot, but if one of my teammates would have taken it, I would have been fine with that,” Dixon said. “We needed a big shot down the stretch.”

The district defeat was on the Shorians’ mind, Dixon said.

“We had it on our minds in the summer,” the senior forward said. “We wanted to get the ‘W’ today.

“This was an emotional game. It was really our first big game playing well as a team.”

Jaylen Dixon finished with 22 points and Ricky Dixon had 11 for Lake Shore, which improved to 2-0 in the division and 6-2 overall with its fourth consecutive victory since a loss to De La Salle.

Jauron Vicks scored 16 points and Keegan Sikorski 11 for Warren Woods-Tower (1-1, 6-1).

“We played tough,” Vicks said. “We played well the whole game. He (Dixon) made a good shot to win it.

“I wouldn’t change anything that we did.”

Lake Shore called timeout with 10.8 seconds left. Ricky Dixon took the inbounds pass, dribbled into the frontcourt and then into the lane.

“We executed,” Ricky Dixon said. “We could have done better not turning the ball over, and we’ve still got to do better on defense. But it’s a really good way to start.”

Lake Shore, which is new to the Gold, won the Silver Division championship and Warren Woods-Tower was the Gold runner-up last season before the teams met in district play at Grosse Pointe North.

New Haven, the defending Gold champion, has moved to the MAC Blue.

St. Clair is 2-0 in the division and 7-0 overall.

The Warren Woods-Tower/Shorians rematch will be at Lake Shore on Jan. 26.

Jaylen Dixon had 11 in the first half for Lake Shore.

Vicks made one of two free throws and Charles Anderson-Louie split a pair as WWT took a 44-43 lead in the final minute of the third quarter.

That was the score as the fourth quarter began.

Lake Shore’s Cortez Jackson landed on his hip after he was fouled while shooting by Keegan Sikorski with 1:54 left in the third quarter.

Jackson made both free throws after the intentional foul, and Lake Shore’s Jaylen Dixon made a 3-point field goal from the corner on the ensuing possession to give the Shorians a 43-42 lead with 1:42 left in the third quarter.

Sikorski’s 3-pointer from the corner gave Warren Woods-Tower a 40-33 lead, but a layup by Mark Hill and Jaylen Dixon’s banked-in triple pulled the Shorians to within 42-38 in the third quarter.

Vicks had 12 points in the first half, which ended with the Titans leading 29-26.
