H.S. BASKETBALL: Central battles past Harrison County

RICHMOND — The Indians used a fourth-quarter surge to pick up another hard-fought victory on the road.

Kirkland Humphrey had a team-best 25 points and Sam Jones had a double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds) as Madison Central (3-0) stayed undefeated with a 77-72 win Monday over Harrison County      (0-2) in Cynthiana.

The Indians trailed by a point heading into the fourth quarter (51-50) before pushing out to a 10-point lead.

“Finally in the final four of five minutes we clapped down and played a little defense,” Central coach Allen Feldhaus said.

The win was the 15th straight for Central dating back to last season. The Indians have not lost since Feb. 9, 2013.

The Indians trailed 20-14 after the first quarter but rallied to tie the game at halftime (36-36).

Central hit 27-of-35 free throws and committed just 13 turnovers.

Humphrey hit four three-pointers and was nine-of-nine at the free throw line.

Demarcus George had 15 points and nine rebounds.

Cameron Thomas had 11 points, Coty Alexander added seven points, Ross Ramsey had four points and Isaiah Jones had three points.

The win came just two days after Central defeated John Hardin in triple overtime at the Purple Cow Roundup at Thomas Nelson.

In that 115-108 victory, George had 29 points and 17 rebounds, Alexander had 23 points, Thomas had 28 points, Humphrey had 18 points, Johnson had 14 points and Jones had 17 rebounds and 11 points.

Central is set to open the home portion of its 2013-2014 season today against Clark County. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
