howardWEB
T.J. Howard for Centertown crosses the center court line and prepares to push the ball ahead versus the aggressive and quick Morrison Eagle defense.

The Eagle offense flew into Centertown on Monday night and soared away with a 44-20 win over the Warriors. The Eagle offense is fast and covers the floor better than most any other 7-8 team in Warren County.
The speed on both ends of the floor and the ability to anticipate the pass is very key in the Morrison offense, not to mention execution.
Irving Espinoza for Morrison led all scorers with 16 points. Espinoza creates havoc on the opponent’s defense.
The Morrison offense pushed the tempo against the Warrior defense. Espinoza went to work right away and it did not take him long to heat up. He pulled up when the defense failed to go out beyond the 3-point line and knocked down the 3-pointer.
He pulled up inside for his second shot of the game. Rylan Holder also added a basket in the early minutes.
It was less than stellar for Centertown on offense. The quick hands and feet from Morrison disrupted the Warriors offensive execution. Wyatt Wilson showed he can hit from way out and he connected form 3-point range and the Warriors trailed 7-3 after one.
The Morrison offense slowed slightly in the second quarter. Centertown focused more of its attention on Espinoza and allowed other Eagle scorers an open look. Rylan Holder scored three more points in the second and his brother, Kason Holder, knocked down 1-of-2 free throws.
Dominique Betancourt silenced the Warrior crowd with his deep 3-point shot and Espinoza added two.
In the second for the Warriors, it was all Wyatt Wilson again and he supplied all of the Centertown offense. He buried a 3-point shot and off the dribble he drew the contact on his way to the basket. He shot 3-of-4 from the line before the half. Centertown trailed 16-9 at the half.
It was more high-flying antics in the third quarter by Morrison and Espinoza got back in his rhythm and added four more to his total in the third. Kason Holder had yet to hit a shot from the floor and he slipped past the defense twice for a pair of easy baskets.
The wheels rolled off the Centertown offense in the third and nothing went according to plan. Wyatt Wilson again supplied the only points for Centertown with a pair of free throws. Anything that could go wrong did in the third for the Warriors and at the end of three Centertown trailed 26-11.
By this time the Morrison offense was on cruise control and the Eagles had their best total of the four quarters. Six different Eagles posted numbers in the final six minutes. Dawson Waldron set his sights on the rim and he pulled up and fired. He connected on his 3-pointer from way out. Elijah Fults and Will Hyder each added points as time ran out on the Warriors.
The Centertown offense improved over its previous quarters and Brad Burke scored inside and then stepped up to the free-throw line and knocked down both attempts. Westen Wilson scored his only three points of the game just before time expired.
It was all Eagle offense and the speed was too much for the Warriors to match and Centertown was defeated, 44-20.
