The Brandon-Evansville boys basketball team had a young roster this past winter, but junior guard Titus Fuller was one of the athletes back with plenty of experience.

Fuller brought home a couple of team-voted honors after the season as he was named the most disciplined player and the Pillar Award winner, which goes to a player who encompasses everything the Chargers are looking for in a teammate who represents Brandon-Evansville well.

Fuller was B-E’s leading scorer at 13.5 points per game. He added 113 total rebounds, 25 assists and 29 steals to his season totals.

Tyler Bitzan


Fellow junior guard Tyler Bitzan joined Fuller on both the Little Eight and Pheasant all-conference teams. Bitzan earned the Chargers’ Defensive Player of the Year Award from his teammates. He showed a knack for chasing down blocks with a team-best 22 of them to go along with 31 deflections and 22 steals. Bitzan also grabbed a team-high 116 rebounds and averaged 8.4 points per game, second best for B-E.

Brady Perleberg

Brady Perleberg and Riley Perleberg are two of the younger players who got minutes this winter. The team voted Brady, a sophomore, the winner of the Best Communicator Award, and Riley, a freshman, as the most-improved player. Riley posted 24 rebounds, 17 assists and 8 steals, while Brady had 15 steals, 53 rebounds and 28 assists in 20 games played.

The Chargers will lose two seniors in Kobe Reiland and Brian Lauthen who were regulars in the rotation. A season-ending loss to Ashby on March 18 wrapped up a 7-13 season for a B-E team that should return the rest of its lineup next winter as the Chargers try to make progress.

Riley Perleberg

“This was a really enjoyable season,” Hintermeister said. “We had guys who worked hard to get better throughout the season. By the end, we were playing great team basketball. The ball didn't go in the basket as much as we wanted, but our defense continued to improve and throughout the month of March we took really good care of the basketball. I'm thankful to have gotten as much of the season as we did. Kobe and Brian are going to be greatly missed within our program. They are fantastic young men.”
