Mason Docks ♦ Williamston
Basketball ♦ Senior
Docks capped a four-year varsity career by helping deliver Williamston’s first MHSAA Finals boys basketball championship since 1940. The 6-foot senior point guard had 19 points, four assists and five steals as the Hornets won a Semifinals matchup of undefeated teams 65-45 over Freeland on March 25. He then poured in 27 points, with six 3-pointers, as Williamston downed 2021 champion Grand Rapids Catholic Central 68-65 in overtime in the Division 2 championship game March 26 at Breslin Center. Docks scored four of the team’s final six points in the finale as the Hornets put the finishing touches on their 27-0 season.
Docks finished with season averages of 16.2 points, 4.8 assists and 3.8 steals per game, and he was named statewide Division 2 Player of the Year this week by The Associated Press. After playing on Williamston’s varsity as a freshman and sophomore, Docks played in Texas as a junior as the family moved to follow his father’s job. But Docks had the opportunity to move back this school year and was one of 10 seniors on the Hornets’ roster. Next season he’ll be the next from his immediate family to play Division 1 basketball, at University of Maryland-Baltimore County. Docks’ father Ted Docks played at Morehead State, and older brother Chris Harrison-Docks played at Butler, Western Kentucky and DePaul.
