BROWNSTOWN

Brownstown Central boys basketball coach Dave Benter said winning a conference championship never gets old.

The Braves used a string of 14 straight points in the last four minutes of the first quarter to open up a 23-8 lead in Friday’s Mid-Southern Conference game, and they cruised to a 76-47 win against Eastern (Pekin). They won the MSC title outright with a 9-0 mark.

“That was our No. 1 goal coming into tonight, to wrap up the Mid-Southern Conference,” Benter said. “That is something our guys can be proud of. I think we’ve won seven out of 10 years. That’s kind of tradition. That’s one of our goals at the start of the season.”
