Riley LaChance wrote his name in the Brookfield Central history books on Saturday, as the Lancers extended their winning streak to seven games.
LaChance scored 15 of his game-high 29 points in the fourth quarter to hand Arrowhead a 66-54 loss Saturday in the Al Classic at the Al McGuire Center.
That topped off a weekend that showed him scoring 26 points in a 64-34 blowout in a Greater Metro Conference win Friday night.
Add to that, LaChance broke the remarkable Charlie Jack's all-time school scoring record now with 1,253 points.
Central led Arrowhead, 28-26, at halftime and 45-43 going into the fourth period, when LaChance did what he does best — take over a game.
LaChance scored 15 points in the 21-11 fourth quarter that put the Lancers over the top. He hit five of six free throws and two 3-pointers.
The Lancers' unsung hero is point guard Brad Newman, who scored 9 of his 17 points in the third period when the Lancers trailed by as much as 7 points.
Ricky Finco tossed in six 3s against the Lancers' 1-3-1 zone and finished with 25 points. But coach Mark Adams switched to man-to-man and put bulldog Terry Wallen on him and he shut Finco down in the final period (3 points).
Tamed the Huskies
LaChance (26) and Elijah Goodman (14) scored 40 of 64 points in the 64-34 rout of Tosa East on Friday on the road.
They led 19-11 and 30-18 after two quarters and 43-26 going into the fourth period.
Central plays Madison West and Mukwonago at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the Luke Homan Tournament.
