H.S. BASKETBALL: Indians roll on the road, Pirates down Walden

RICHMOND — The Madison Central Indians bounced back from a loss to Dunbar earlier in the week with a big 76-56 road win over East Ridge on Saturday.

Four Indians scored in double figures, led by Sam Jones with 17 points. Kirk Humphrey had 15 points, Cameron Thomas 14 and Demarcus George finished with 13 points.

The game was tied 16-16 after one quarter, but thanks to its full-court pressure, Central began to pull away.

The Indians outscored the Warriors by 15 in the second quarter to take a 41-26 lead into the locker room.

The second half was much the same as the Indians press was just too much for East Ridge as Central steadily built its lead to as many as 30 points in the fourth quarter.

Central coach Allen Feldhaus said he was pleased with how his team bounced back.

“We played a lot better tonight, especially defensively. We pressed the whole game and kind of wore them down and got the big lead. That allowed us to play our subs the last four or five minutes,” he said.

Central is back in action on Friday when it travels to Covington to take on Holy Cross.

Berea 80, Walden 65

Shyiem Alexander and Andy Allen combined for 37 points to lead the Berea Community Pirates to an 82-65 win over Walden Saturday in Berea.

Alexander had a season-high 19 points and four rebounds, while Allen finished with 18 points, three rebounds, two steals and one assist.

The Pirates jumped out to a 13-8 lead after one quarter. They extended their lead to 30-24 at the half.

Walden pulled to within one at 55-54 by the end of the third quarter, but Berea was able to stretch its lead back out.

Bradley Atkins and Trey Terrill also finished in double figures for the Pirates. Atkins had 15 points and Terrill added 10 points and seven assists.

Dustin Kates finished with eight points, Caleb Goss had five points, Jarel Tevis added three points and Austin Warford had two points.

The Pirates return to action on Tuesday when they travel to Burgin.
