Classmates rush the floor to celebrate Central’s playoff win over Saluda.
A tale of two playoff games

Central won its first basketball playoff game in eight years – a 57-53 first-round win over Saluda – but couldn’t maintain that momentum into the second round of the Upper State AA playoffs. 

Greenville Tech scored 21 points in the third quarter en route to a 52-42 win at home on Saturday. 

“We were not mentally prepared,” Central coach Charles Brown said of the Greenville Tech game. 

It was a fast-paced game for both teams. Usually an up-tempo game favors Central.
