With 1:44 to play, Wilson Central (#4 seed) emptied their bench because the embarrassment had to end. It needed to. Hendersonville’s Commandos (#5 seed) barely competed the final three quarters falling 60-36 in the final District 9AAA quarterfinal.
With the blowout win Wilson Central will get the favored Mt. Juliet Golden Bears Saturday night in the Hendersonville gymnasium.
