CITY LEAGUE BASKETBALL: Brookhaven avenges early season loss to Centennial with 65-50 win

Early in the season, the Centennial Stars looked like a team that could challenge Northland and Brookhaven in the City’s North Division.

They even beat the Bearcats on’s HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE at home.

But recently, the Stars have fell on tough times, losing a televised game to the City League kingpins, the Vikings and Friday night, a 65-50 loss at Brookhaven.

The Bearcats take over their customary second-place spot in the North with the victory.

The Stars hurt themselves with a nine-point second quarter and fell behind 38-20 and never recovered.

DeVante Wilson led Brookhaven (15-2, 9-2) with 18 points.

Centennial was led by Boo Osborne, who was contained to 13 points.

Coming into this week, the East High Tigers felt really good about themselves having won three in a row over Briggs, Walnut Ridge and Linden to even their record at 5-5.

With the win on Tuesday over Linden, still looming was Mifflin on Friday and Watterson on Saturday.

The Tigers had a complete meltdown in the fourth quarter against a pressing, fast-breaking Mifflin team and lost 82-78 on’s HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE.

Then comes Saturday and a meeting with tough Central Catholic League power, Bishop Watterson.

The result was a disappointing week when they felt they could win all three if not two of the games.

Bryan Jackson led the Eagles with a season-high 26 points and 11 rebounds for host Watterson who improves to 7-1 after the 57-32 win over East.

The Tigers dropped two games under .500 at 5-7.

Watterson led 17-9 at the end of the first quarter. But East closed to within 22-16 at the half. The Eagles took total control in the 3rd quarter with a 15-8 run to move the score to 37-24 and the rout was on.

The Africentric Nubians have picked up where they left off from last season by winning key games in the Columbus City League South Division.

This week, the Nubians beat Eastmoor Academy, 53-50 Tuesday night on’s HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE.  Friday night, they breezed by the Independence 76ers, 83-63.

Host Africentric is now 3-1, 2-0 on the young season.

Independence drops to 1-1,1-1.

Kenny Robinson and Akil Cornish each scored 20 points. Cornish was 6 of 7 from beyond the three-point line. Trevon Saunders chipped in with 13 points and 10 assists for the Nubians.

The 76ers were led by Malik Breckenridge with 19 points.

It has been years since the Centennial Stars have beaten Brookhaven.

The two Columbus City League North Division rivals usually finish second and third respectively to kingpin Northland.

Last year, Brookhaven lost twice only to Northland in the North; Centennial lost to Northland and Brookhaven.

Friday night on’s HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE broadcast, the Stars seemed determined to win the key early season matchup between the two schools.

There were several keys to the game that enabled the Stars to pull out the game:

*They did not allow the Bearcats to run and gun which they are accustomed to.

* The Stars committed 21 turnovers, but not many against the aggressive Brookhaven press.

* Centennial did not allow Randall Clarkson, Kevin Greenhow and Ronnie Williams to score at will.

* The Stars scored 18 points in the 3rd and 4th quarters.

The game came down to the waning moments as Brookhaven rebounded a missed shot by Centennial with a minute left. The Bearcats worked the ball down to the :10 second mark before attempting a shot which was missed. In his haste to get the loose rebound, Clarkson ran into the Stars Gyai Gyamerah with 2.3 seconds left and the foul was called. Gyamerah calmly went to the free throw line and canned both shots for the 62-60 home win.

The Stars (1-1, 1-0) were led by St. Charles transfer Christian Cumberlander with 13 points and Jamal Slappy with 11 points.

The only reason the Bearcats were in the game, was their free throw shooting (20-32) and the play of transfer Deiondray Martin who scored 20 points, all in the second, third and fourth quarters.

The Bearcats fall to 1-1, 0-1.
