Aaron Richards poured in 12 points to lead the balanced BC attack as Central led 17-9 after the first quarter and 29-15 at halftime.

Cade Holter and Braden Harrington each hit a pair of 3-pointers and scored 11 and 10 points, respectively. Gator Yelenich continued his solid stretch with eight points, while Jared Simkins tossed in seven.

The Maroons, who improved to 5-0 in league play, also got six points form Luke Heaphy and two apiece from Matt Simkins and Dylan Sestrich.

Caeson Jessop’s nine points led Corvallis. Caleb Warnken scored seven, while Jace Barcus netted six and Garrett Brown scored four.
