The Indians had an 8-6 lead, but Perry County Central scored the final 11 points of the first quarter. The Commodores had a 39-24 lead at the half.

Perry County Central was led by Justin Johnson (24 points, 14 rebounds) and Braxton Beverly (25 points, seven assists).

Madison Central (17-8) is set to return to action today at Lexington Catholic.

Scarberry picks up 100th win

Model Laboratory coach Wes Scarberry reached a significant milestone on Friday in Richmond.

The Patriots’ 66-59 victory over Wolfe County gave Scarberry his 100th win. In seven seasons at Model, Scarberry is 101-91.

With a win on Saturday at Pineville, the Patriots moved to 15-8 on the season.

Scarberry led Model to a 23-7 record last season and the school’s first-ever appearance in the Touchstone Energy All “A” State Tournament. Scarberry was also named the 11th Region Coach of the Year.

The Patriots have had winning records in three of the past four seasons — 23-7 in 2013, 16-14 in 2012 and 16-9 in 2010.

After the win over Wolfe County, Scarberry was presented the game ball by his daughter, Jenna.
