Center Hill came with the perfect game plan, which was to slow the game down and force Olive Branch to come out to the top of the key and play defense.
That game plan was intact from the start and had the ‘Quistors off-balanced and on the ropes. Down 54-52 in the fourth quarter, Olive Branch (20-7) needed an answer.
Senior point guard Joe Cooper’s 3 over two defenders was needed and was huge for the ‘Quistors as they were able to hold off the Mustangs by the final score of 72-63 on Senior Night.
Center Hill senior point guard Calvin Temple scored seven points in the third quarter to help the Mustangs grab a 50-47 lead. But, Temple picked up his second foul, which sent Cooper to the free throw
