The Central Catholic boys basketball team clinched at least a share of the Three Rivers Athletic Conference boys title as Jermiah Braswell scored 15 points and Marcus Winters added 11 in a 61-47 win over Lima Senior on Sunday.
Central (17-2, 12-1) went into the half with just a 32-29 lead, but the Irish, just as they did against rival St. John’s on Friday night, tightened up their defense to start the second half. Central limited the visitors to seven points in the third quarter to build a 44-36 lead and gradually pulled away in the fourth.
For the Spartans (7-13, 4-9), Jay Thomas had 17 and Rico Stafford 12.
Notre Dame 50, Perrysburg 35
A strong start and stronger second half propelled the Eagles to the win on Saturday afternoon.
Tierra Floyd and Kaayla McIntyre each scored 13 points, while Jayda Worthy added 11 as Notre Dame took a 14-9 lead after the first quarter and extended a two-point halftime lead by allowing just 13 points in the second half.
Sarah Baer scored 13 to lead Perrysburg.
Notre Dame (18-3) came into the game rated No. 7 in the final Division I coaches poll, while the Yellow Jackets (19-3) were ranked sixth.
