AREA BOYS BASKETBALL: Big Reds best Chargers in key SCC battle

CENTERVILLE — As the race for the South Central Conference title resumed on Friday, the Centerville boys basketball team staked an early claim to the crown. Michael Starcevich scored 19 points while Kolton Gonnerman added 18 as the Big Reds built a big 20-6 lead early in a 64-47 win over Chariton.

Starcevich nailed three 3-pointers as Centerville closed the game in style, outscoring Chariton 24-15 in the fourth quarter after the Chargers closed to within eight after three.

“It was kind of a game where the first and fourth quarter decided it,” Chariton head coach Ben Schooley said. “We gave up 44 points in those two quarters combined, so we didn’t start very well and didn’t finish well either.”

Alex Wright scored 15 points to lead the Chargers, including a 3-5 shooting effort from 3-point territory. Chariton (7-2, 3-2) returns to action today at Wayne while Centerville (7-1, 4-0) rides a seven-game winning streak into a matchup at defending 3A state champion Mount Pleasant on Tuesday.

Mustangs run past Clarke in home opener

BLOOMFIELD — After spending the 2012 portion of this season on the road, the Davis County boys kicked off 2013 with a successful home opener. Park Mikels and Colton Roberts each scored 18 points as the Mustangs dominated early in an 81-50 South Central Conference win on Friday.

“We told the guys before the game it was nice to be in our loud gym,” Davis County head boys basketball coach Jeff Graves said. “We fed off the energy of the crowd. We were definitely ready to play at home.”

Roberts added 10 rebounds for a double-double while Wyatt Garmon and Calvin Utt each poured in 10 points for Davis County. The Mustangs dominated the opening eight minutes, opening a 17-4 lead on Clarke, and closed the game outscoring the Indians 26-9 in the final period.

Jared Jamison led Clarke with 16 points. Davis County (4-4, 2-1) returns to their home floor tonight for a matchup with Central Decatur.
