NEW MADRID -- The Memphis Central Warriors got out to a quick start against the Charleston Bluejays on Friday night as they soundly defeated them 68-50.

The Warriors jumped out to a 24-8 first quarter lead and would never look back as the Bluejays struggled from the field.

"We didn't shoot the ball as well as we should have," Charleston head coach Danny Farmer said. "If we would have shot the ball it probably would have been a closer game."

Memphis Central began the second half by outscoring the Bluejays 20-9 which would increase their lead to 29 points, 60-31. That would be the biggest deficit Charleston faced all throughout the game.
