Boys Varsity Basketball · Winter–Boys Basketball–Wildcats Defeat Centennial 57-40, Move Record To 2-3

Article by: AJ Hughes

On Tuesday November 24th, the Wilson Central Wildcats traveled to Centennial to pick up their second win of the season. Through the first three quarters the game was close as Centennial led 38-35 heading into the fourth quarter. However, in the fourth quarter the Wildcats dominated, outscoring Centennial 22-2. That made the final score 57-40 in favor of Wilson Central. Wilson Central’s senior point guard, Zack Markus was a big factor in that big fourth quarter run. He scored 11 points in that quarter and made some significant free throws towards the end of the game.  Overall, Markus had 19 points and went 11 for 11 from the free throw line.

This win should give the Wildcats a huge confidence boost heading into their two rivalry games they have been keyed in on. They’ll play the Golden Bears at Mt. Juliet High School on Tuesday December 1st, and then they’ll host the Lebanon Blue Devils on Friday December 4th.
