What a difference a half makes. The Centennial High basketball team led by just one point today at halftime against visiting Palo Verde in the Sunset Regional quarterfinals, struggling against the Panthers’ guard-heavy lineup. The Bulldogs dominated the second half, though, in outscoring Palo Verde by 29 points in what wound up be a convincing 79-49 victory to advance to Thursday’s regional semifinals.

Troy Brown Jr. couldn’t hold back his emotions. When he got off the phone Tuesday night with UNLV basketball coach Dave Rice, the Centennial High freshman was so overwhelmed with happiness he started crying.

high school basketball: In what was expected to be a close game, powerhouse Gaels frustrate Centennial with great zone defense in lopsided win
Nobody expected an outcome this lopsided. Bishop Gorman High senior guard Trey Kennedy knew his team was comfortably ahead Friday against Centennial in the Division-I high school state basketball game at the Orleans Arena, but wasn’t closely following the score. Then, he looked up.

high school basketball: The Bulldogs overcome double-digit deficit to beat Valley for last spot in Thursday's state tournament
With the Centennial High basketball team trailing Valley Monday by 10 points midway through the second quarter of the state play-in game, several in the gym assumed a player with the last name Allen would be the one to step up. And, twins Marcus and Malcolm Allen eventually took over the game. But, at this junction of the game, the Bulldogs had help from an unlikely source.

high school basketball: Allen twins combine for 61 points to help Bulldogs move on in playoffs
At halftime, the game was playing out the way many thought it would. Centennial went on a substantial run in the second quarter to build a double-digit lead over a talented, but outgunned Durango team. That mentality changed after the Trail Blazers reeled off a big run of their own to start the second half.

high school basketball:
When the referee tossed the jump ball Thursday night to start the second overtime between Bishop Gorman and visiting Centennial, the state’s unquestioned top high school basketball teams, you could have easily argued the game would never end. On this night, they were that evenly matched. One team would pull ahead, then the other would tie the game. Over and over again.
