H.S. HOOPS: Central downs South Laurel

RICHMOND — The Madison Central Indians rebounded from a loss at Russell County last weekend to post a 77-60 win over South Laurel in London.

Central got off to a slow start but cranked up the offense in the second quarter to pull away from the Cardinals.

“The first half we didn’t play very good. I think it was the side effects from Saturday night. We played hard, we just didn’t play good,” Coach Allen Feldhaus said.

The second half was really good. They shot 50 percent in the first half, but in the second they only shot 20 percent. We made some stops and got some fast breaks and dunks and loosened up and got back to playing the way we should be playing.

Feldhaus said he didn’t say anything to the team at the half to turn it around, it was just a matter of pride.

“I didn’t really say much except we need to make stops. It’s ridiculous to let a team shoot 50 percent on us,” Feldhaus said. “We pride ourselves on our man-to-man defense and in the third quarter we made the stops. I think they were 3-of-14 in the third quarter.”

Central got balanced scoring across the board with four players in double figures led by Dominique Hawking with 18 points.

Ken jab Bossily finished with 17, Sam Jones had 15 and Quan Taylor had 13.

The Indians got strong play on the boards from Demarcus George and Jones off the bench that helped break the game open.

“Both our JV post players did a great job against their zone,” Feldhaus said. “Sam and Demarcus work very well together and they made a big difference in there tonight.”

Central will be back in action Thursday when they travel to Woodford County.
