Richmond High School
Muncie Central High School
Richmond earned its first North Central Conference win of the season by outlasting Muncie Central 66-63 on Friday night at the Muncie Fieldhouse.
Christian Harvey led three Red Devils in double figures scoring 31 points, including 22 in an electric first half that saw the visitors rally from a seven-point deficit to take a six-point lead at the half.
Trey Griffin added 16 points with five of those coming in the third quarter as Richmond pushed its lead to double figures. Junior Kei’Shaun Clemons was the third Red Devil to reach double figures as he added 11 points, including a clutch basket in the final minutes to stop a Bearcat rally.
Senior A.J. Ferguson added eight points and 10 rebounds for the Red Devils who never trailed in the second half as they improved their record to 5-10 ahead of next Friday’s non-conference game at Shelbyville.
