Thornton finished ninth in the league in scoring (17.3 ppg.) and was 10th in free throw percentage (.822). His 44-point performance against West Liberty marked the most points scored by a WVIAC player this season. For his career, Thornton tallied 2,106 points. He earned first-team all-district honors and was selected to play in the 2013 Reese's Division II College All-Star game.
