A late rally lifted the Centertown Warriors to the second round of the Warren Masonic Tournament as they overcame a first half deficit to claim a 37-33 win over the Swiss.The visiting squad from Grundy County struck early as they pushed a fast pace in the opening period, leaving Centertown to adjust to their wide-open full court offense. The Swiss’ Kollan Cooper was hitting on all cylinders as he bucketed eight of his game-high 13 points in the first frame, leading Swiss Wildcats to a 10-4 opening quarter lead. The Swiss’ strategy of rebounding the ball and then slinging it the length of the court to a “snow bird” at the other end worked well.However, both Cooper and the full-court strategy disappeared in the second quarter, leaving the Swiss to score only five points.
