SULLIVAN -- After the first loss of the season, Central A&M went right back to winning.

The Raiders found their stride in the second quarter to come away with a 65-41 win against Sullivan as Ryan Dooley (14 points), Mikah Maples (13) and Emma Meyer (13) led a balanced effort.

"We responded real well following Saturday's loss," A&M coach Tom Dooley said. "We came out aggressive and played really hard."

Lizzie Green scored 16 points to pace Sullivan.

Maples and Meyer both hit milestones, scoring their 1,000th points.

A&M wraps up the regular season on Thursday at home against Shelbyville.

Tuscola 58, Warrensburg-Latham 33

WARRENSBURG -- After an even first quarter, the Warriors' defense put up walls against the Cardinals' attack.

"I was really pleased with our team defense tonight," Tuscola coach Tim Kohlbecker said. "We did a pretty good job of rebounding as well."

Emma Henderson and Halle McCrory shared the lead on offense as each scored 15 points. Marjory Coates' nine led Warrensburg.

The win gave Tuscola (20-4) back-to-back 20-win seasons.

Arcola 40, Okaw Valley 24

ARCOLA -- It was something Nancy Stiff was looking for a couple of weeks ago at the LOVC tournament -- patience.

Arcola had it on Monday, as they controlled the tempo and eased to a win.

"All three seniors played like it was senior night," Stiff said. "The rest of the kids stepped up and got it done. We were patient on offense, and that helped."

Kauryn Karmazinas flirted with a double-double, scoring 12 points and bringing in seven rebounds to lead Arcola in both categories.

The defense from Arcola was particularly strong, as the Riders held Okaw Valley to eight points or less in each quarter.

"We played very good defense," Stiff said. "It was a good all-around ball game for us."

Jesse Robinson led Okaw Valley with six points.
