Senior forward Shawn Blaney led Westminster (9-7, 5-4) with 21 points, and junior point guard Drue Giles added nine.
The Owls’ biggest problem seemed to be producing points in the final quarter. They only had four and shot 2-for-9 from the field.
“We didn’t play with energy and effort and that’s what happens,” Westminster coach Brett Kanther said. “They played better. They deserved to win. We have to move on. We have three games next week.”
Century led 42-40 entering the final quarter.
The Knights opened the period with a 12-0 run, and Truby had eight points during that stretch. Westminster missed its first five shots and didn’t score until Denio Blaney converted a layup with 2:34 remaining.
Consecutive layups from Owings and Lamb gave Century a 19-14 lead in the middle of the second quarter.
The Knights’ third trey of the first half came from Lamb and boosted the host’s advantage to 22-16 with 3:11 left.
Blaney had 15 first-half points and Truby had 10. Truby and the Knights seem to have revenge on their minds — Westminster beat Century, 49-37, in the county rivals’ first regular-season matchup Dec. 21.
“The last time we lost to them, it hurt a lot,” Truby said. “So I am glad we got the win tonight.”
Century (56): Jake Diehl 4, Jared Lamb 16, Zach Owings 13, Carter Truby 23.
Westminster (44): Denio Blaney 4, Drue Giles 9, Shawn Blaney 21, Joe Wright 2, Jacob Busic 4, Parker Eysaman 4.
