Brownstown Central tied a school-record with 17 3-pointers to hand Southwestern boys basketball one of its worst losses in school history, 104-39 Saturday at Delbert O. King Gymnasium in Hanover.
The Braves, ranked ninth in Class 3A, were 17-for-31 (54.8 percent) from behind the arc and got treys from six different players. Chaz Schneider and Hayden Stuckwisch each hit five 3-pointers while Brett McCory had four.
Brownstown (9-1) jumped out to a 20-1 lead and led 36-7 by the end of the first quarter. The lead was 54-14 at halftime and the Braves continued to pour it on in the second half.
The 65-point margin of defeat was the second-worst in Southwestern's 52-year history. The worst loss came courtesy of Scottsburg, which hammered the Rebels 123-52 on Nov. 10, 1995. The 123 is also the most points ever scored against Southwestern.
The 104 points on Saturday are the most Southwestern has allowed since Jac-Cen-Del also scored 104 points in a 104-75 win over the Rebels on Dec. 20, 1996.
Southwestern, now 3-8 on the season, hosts Switzerland County on Friday.
