De’Torrion Ware is a 6’4 small forward from Christian County High School in Hopkinsville, KY. Through early February, the Colonels are 16-6 and sit just behind University Heights in the regional standings. Last season Christian County finished 27-8 and just short of the state tournament, falling to city-rival Hopkinvsille.
If Christian County makes it to the state tournament this season, it’ll be on the back of their senior wing. “With Jaylen (Sebree) and guys like that graduating and leaving us, I needed to step up and lead,” said Ware. And he has sure done that.
De’Torrion Ware is currently averaging 31.3 points and 9 rebounds per game. Is points per game average puts him at third in scoring in Kentucky. Last season, ware averaged 20.6 points and 7.4 rebounds. “I just want to do whatever I can to help me team win.” Ware is shooting 51% from the field and 35% on 183 attempts from 3-point range.
Ware is capable of taking over games for Christian County, using an arsenal of offensive skill and ability to make it a long night for defenses. He can take you off the dribble and finish with ease at the rim, or hurt you by scoring around the perimeter. He’s also managed to go toe-to-toe with region rival and mutli-“Power Five” conference offers prospect Dekeyvan Tandy. There is never an off night for De’Torrion Ware.
Christian County has some big wins against schools from around the state, including Doss, Paducah Tilghman, Mayfield, Bowling Green, and University Heights , who they will most likely have to take down in order to make it to Rupp Arena.
Ware currently holds an offer from NCAA D-I program Southeast Missouri State out of the Ohio Valley Conference. As district, regional, and (hopefully) state tournament games begin, expect more interest to pick-up for the senior.
