Centrals Survives Against Graves Co. In Boys Sweet 16

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Central fought through a furious Graves
County rally to win 53-51 in the final seconds of the third game of
the Boys Sweet Sixteen State Basketball Tournament at Rupp Arena
on Wednesday.
The lead came off senior guard Alex Morrisons jumper with 20
seconds left. A steal by freshman guard Desmond Brown with six
seconds remaining sealed the game.
Graves County had managed to fight back from a 13 point
half-time deficit, taking its first lead at 39-37 with a minute
left in the third quarter. Still, 22 turnovers doomed the Eagles.
Senior forward Ridge Wilson led Central with 16 points, and
Morrison added 11.
Central will play the winner of Corbin and Eastern on Friday at
1:30.
