Central sees season end on halfcourt heartbreaker

Posted: Updated:

The Phenix City-Central Red Devils lost to Carver-Montgomery in the boys 6A Central Region Finals Friday morning in the most improbably way possible.

Tied at 56 with 7.1 seconds and the Wolverines trying to go the length of the floor, Carver’s Antonio Nelson launched an off-balance, one-footed, falling away prayer from halfcourt.

It found nothing but the bottom of the net.

The loss was just the second of the year for the Red Devils, but it ends their season.

Central’s Anthony Moore led everybody with 17 points Friday, and was named to the all-tournament team.
