FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) -- East Noble Junior T.J. Blair had a super Saturday night this past weekend and it led to his being the Indiana's NewsCenter boys basketball player of the week.

T.J. has been hot early, averaging 24 points and five rebounds a game, but what he did against Snider Saturday night was special.

He hit the Panthers for 39 points, 32 of them in the second half and overtime to key the Knights win.

T.J. is aware the defenses will now key in on him, his play the result of a lot off off season work on his game.

T.J.'s role with the Knights is to score, he is a tough matchup to face, and has started to be a little more of a vocal leader.

After his 13 point per game Sophomore season, T.J.'s play is no surprise.

He is drawing division two and NAIA college interest, and if T.J. continues this level of play, that is bound to increase
