Braves hold off Eagles for MSC win


One Mid-Southern Conference game down, two more to go this week.

And none of them are going to be easy for the Class 3A No. 5 Brownstown Central boys basketball team.

The Braves maintained a double-digit lead for most of Tuesday’s MSC game at Austin, but the host Eagles hit some big shots late and outscored the Braves 24-18 in the fourth quarter to make the final score 65-56, favoring Brownstown.

“The fourth quarter, I didn’t think we guarded very well at all,” Braves coach Dave Benter said. “We’ve got to have some consistency for 32 minutes. We can’t have guys playing really well for two minutes here, and then breaking down the next (few) minutes. I thought Skylar (Thompson) and Brett (McCory) guarded inside well, but we’ve got to have better ball containment on the perimeter.”
