No. 4-ranked Warren Central beats Avon



Both offenses came alive in the third quarter as Warren Central opened up a 48-37 lead. The Warriors went on a 11-4 run to start the first two minutes of the quarter but Avon responded with its own 8-0 run right after.

At one point, the Orioles found themselves down 38-34 midway through the third quarter, but Warren Central would close the quarter on a 10-3 run. Avon failed to get back to the free throw line as often as they did in the first half, going 1 of 2 in the second half, with both attempts in the third quarter.

“They did a much better job of getting to the free throw line than we did,” Young said. “We settled for jump shots and that’s not going to get it done against a top five team, especially on the road.”

Warren Central showed great discipline in the final quarter, holding onto the ball and running down the clock. It forced Avon to loosen its zone and potentially open up some holes in its defense.

“For us to have to extend our defense against their athletes, it really puts us in a vulnerable position and it’s obviously a position we wanted to avoid,” Young said. “But when you get down six to eight points with three minutes to go, you’re going to have to extend. We didn’t want to do it, but we had to.”

For the few shot attempts Avon did get in the final quarter, they could not connect on many. The Orioles hit their first 3-pointer of the game with 33 seconds left and added another with seconds remaining.

This was Avon’s second game in a back-to-back. The Orioles defeated Harrison Friday night, 56-48. They return to the court with another back-to-to back this Friday at Brownsburg and then Saturday at Southport.
