3-point line sinks McNary against Centennial in tourney final

The Celts (5-2) came in averaging 71 points per game and allowing just 48, striving on a fast-paced transition offense stemming from their pressure defense. Centennial (6-2) prefers a slower, more deliberate pace, scoring 58 per game while holding opponents to 50.

Tuesday was definitely that slow Centennial pace. The two teams combined for just 35 points in the first half in a game Centennial would eventually win 55-47.
