The Century boys basketball bandwagon gained more momentum Friday night, as the Knights beat visiting Westminster, 60-53, for their 14th straight victory.
More importantly, Century won its third Carroll County championship in fours years under coach George Wunder.
A wild celebration ensued after the buzzer sounded.
"To win a county championship on our home court makes it extra special," Wunder said. "We have had a lot of guys working all offseason to have an opportunity to get to this moment. It's really an exciting thing for these guys and I am proud of them."
The Knights didn't play their usual textbook basketball, but secured the victory when senior point guard Zach Tucker sank five of six free throws in the final 1:08. Tucker, the county's leading scorer, finished with a team-high 18 points.
