Travis Grayson took it upon himself.

The junior guard scored 36 points, including 11-of-12 from the foul line, to lead the Chesterton boys basketball team to a 62-50 non-conference victory over Hammond Morton on Tuesday night.

“When we were able to get stops and Travis got downhill, he was really effective,” Chesterton coach Marc Urban said. “He was able to finish at the rim against contact and, at his size, that’s something he has to be able to do. He scored the ball really well tonight.”

Hammond Morton jumped out to a 7-2 lead and led 17-15 after one quarter as the Governors hit 7-of-9 shots from the field, including three 3-pointers.

“This was a great lesson for us. The first half they punched us in the mouth and I was happy with the way we responded,” Urban said. “We know we’re going to get everybody’s best shot and we embrace that. We have been so focused on us getting better that we helped off some guys you can’t help off of. To their credit, they shot the ball well.”

An 8-0 Chesterton run that included four points from Grayson gave the Trojans their first lead at 23-19.

“I thought we tried to blow the out on the first side of the floor early in the game,” Urban said. “We’re really good when the ball moves, people move and the ball goes inside-out. When we get into conference play, we have to get the ball to the third side to get good shots.”

A 10-2 run to start the third quarter pushed the lead to double figures and the Trojans were never challenged again.

Chesterton hit on 23-of-49 shots (47 percent) from the field and held Morton to just 12-of-35 shooting (34 percent) over the final three quarters.

Rounding out the scoring for CHS were Tyler Vanderwoude (10 points), Charlie Eaton (7 points), Justin Sims (5 points) and Chris Mullen (4 points).
