Six long-range shots in the second quarter of Tuesday’s game boosted Class 3A No. 4 Brownstown Central to a double-figure lead against Class 4A Floyd Central.
Four different Braves combined for the 3-pointers in the second quarter, and they added two from 2-point range and a pair of free throws to outscore the Highlanders 24-12 and take a 40-21 lead at halftime.
Brownstown then outscored Floyd Central in the final two quarters for a 71-46 win, their second straight against a 4A team.
“First quarter, we started off pretty well,” Braves sophomore Collin DeHart said of his team’s 16 points on 8-for-17 shooting. “Second quarter, we played pretty well, started hitting shots and we got separation. Everything was clicking. We made sure we got separation before halftime so (the Highlanders) didn’t have a chance of coming back, and if they made a run, we had enough of a lead where we had a cushion.”
For the first half, the Braves shot 16 of 32 from the field.
