GEORGETOWN, Texas – The Centenary men’s basketball team moved even in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play following a 65-58 win at Southwestern University on Saturday afternoon. The Gents sits 7-7 overall and 2-2 in the SCAC while SU falls to 5-10 and 2-3 in the league.

A contest in which the Gents led a majority of the way with the Black and Gold claiming its only lead with 12:12 left to play on a Johnson layup, but Caden Cheramie layup three seconds later placed the Maroon and White back in front. Centenary, which held its largest lead early in the first half by 12 points, continued to press the advantage grabbing a 51-41 lead with 7:39 left in the contest.

The Gents connected on a season-high 66.7 percent from behind the arc as they shot .39 percent from the floor. Centenary hit 82 percent from the free throw line tying the second best mark of the season set against LSU-Shreveport in the season opener.
