Lapeer West senior Cullen Turczyn became the Flint Metro League’s all-time leading scorer on Monday night, as the Panthers beat Holly 62-44.

LAPEER, Michigan — Monday night’s victory for Lapeer West (12-5) over Holly (11-6) wasn’t simply a payback for a loss earlier in the season, but a coronation of sorts. West senior point guard Cullen Turczyn needed only 11 points to become the Flint Metro League’s all-time leading scorer. He scored 14.

Turczyn, at maybe 5-foot-8, is truly one of the most unassuming standouts I’ve ever watched. He plays theĀ  game the right way — hard on both ends of the floor. Holly threw everything they had at him, and Turczyn responded with assists to open shooters rather than ill-advised shots. The record was earned for him in the fourth quarter, when he made both ends of a one-and-one.

The record had belonged to former Lapeer East standout Brandon Fisher for more than two decades.
