Basketball scoreboard: Carthage upsets No. 1-ranked Center, 41-40

Shelbyville boys edge San Augustine in OT

CARTHAGE – The Center Roughriders were upset on the road by the Carthage Bulldogs, 41-40, Tuesday night in a game that will likely bump the Riders from the No. 1-spot in the Class 4A boys basketball rankings.

“We needed that butt-whoop,” said Center head coach Hiram Harrison after the game.

With the loss, Center (24-2) finds itself in an unexpected battle for the top spot in District 16 play with Carthage (6-2), Rusk (14-10) and Tatum (17-14) reaching Friday's mid-point of district play with 2-1 records.

Center hosts Tatum Friday at 7:30 p.m.
