Central Hoops Bounced in State; Blackman Earns Double

Wilson Central made it back to the Big Dance last week, but unfortunately it was one-and-done for the Wildcats in the BlueCross Basketball Championships. Ben Palmer and Jacob Williams each hit buckets for Central to give the Wildcats a 4-3 lead early over the Brentwood Bruins, but Andy Schumpert gave the Bruins the lead right back at 5-4, and Brentwood never looked back. The lead was 21-8 at the end of one, and Brentwood led by as much as 15 in the second before the half ended at 30-17. Wilson Central trimmed the lead to single digits twice in the third, but a strong Bruin run to close out the quarter saw Brentwood up 21 at 46-25. The sides would haggle over the margin in the final frame, but Brentwood hung on to win 56-36 and advance to the semifinals. Jacob Williams led the way for the Wildcats with a double-double, 15 points and 11 rebounds.
Murfreesboro-Blackman would go on to beat Brentwood 47-40, before rallying from 9 down in the championship game to beat Oak Ridge 60-58. The win would give the Blaze Rutherford County’s first boys’ basketball title in almost 50 years, and the fifth sweep of boys’ and girls’ state titles in TSSAA history.
