Centennial Gets a Tourney Tune-Up

Going into Friday night's game against Roswell, Lorenzo Brown needed only 6 points to cross the 2,000 point barrier for his career at Centennial. Six points was all he needed and 6 points is what he got. Zo's scoring ability was not desperately needed against Roswell in the 73-33, 40 point beat down. His unselfish play included 6 rebounds, 6 steals, and 4 assists. The Knights succeeded in doing something that has never been done in their school's history: They finished regional play with an undefeated record.

There was no rest for the weary as Centennial woke up on Saturday morning and drove to Asheville, NC. Saturday night's game featured the #1 team in the state of Georgia (Centennial) vs. the #1 team in the state of North Carolina (Christ School). It also featured a matchup of Mason Plumlee (McDonald's All-American and Duke Commit) vs. Lorenzo Brown. The end of the game came down to these two high school phenoms who will soon be bitter ACC rivals. Lorenzo tied the game with 12 seconds left via a runner in the lane only to be followed by Plumlee's buzzer beating 18 foot dagger to give Christ School a 75-73 victory. Zo battled and finished the game with 24 points. Regardless of the outcome of the game, it served as a tremendous tune-up for both teams as they enter post-season play next week.

Centennial has a home game next Wednesday night at the Roundtable against the winner of the Campbell/Alpharetta game. The Knights finished the season 22-3.
