Posted by Community Relations on 3/11/2015
A season-ending loss is never fun, but the Central High Boys Basketball team concluded a great season with a valiant effort February 25 in the State Quarterfinals against one of the best teams in the nation. For the second time this month, the Bobcats took three-time defending state champion Corona del Sol down to the buzzer, before the Aztecs won at the end. Central fell behind 25-10 to start the game, but outscored and outplayed Corona the next three quarters. They pulled to within one point halfway through the fourth quarter, and closed to within two points with 56 seconds left. The Bobcats were led by senior Famoun Miller, with 20 points and 12 rebounds and Obi Megwa had 19 points. Central ended the season with a 25-6 record.
Corona eventually won another State Title, but in an Arizona Republic final ranking of every team in the state, Central was #2.
