SAN ANGELO, TX-- The Central Bobcats took on the Brandies Broncos at Lake View's Ben Norton Gym for third place in the Doug McCutchen tournament. Central ended up falling to the Broncos 62-70.
The game was neck and neck through the start of the first quarter. Brandies started to pull away though when they made a borage of three pointers.
Brandies also got into a press in the middle of the first, which made it tough for Central to get a lot going offensively. At the the end of the first quarter, the score was 25-15.
In the second quarter the Bobcat defense played great only giving up nine points and five of which came from the free throw line. Deveraux Minix played a great quarter with nine points after not scoring in the first. One of the points by Minix was a three pointer from nearly half court at the buzzer.
At the half the score was 34-29.
The start of the third did not bode well for Central's offense as they didn’t score their first basket until the 3:30 mark.
Minix hit a three pointer that started a 9-3 run at the close of the quarter to close the gap, but at the end of the third the score was 46-39.
