Bears battle back from early Central surge

Mt. Juliet’s Osize Daniyan shoots over Wilson Central’s Hunter Scurlock for two of his 18 points.

GLADEVILLE — Wilson Central’s boys bolted to a big lead early before Mt. Juliet controlled the rest of the game as the Golden Bears picked up a 45-38 road victory last Friday.

The Wildcats jumped to a 12-1 lead. But Osize Daniyan keyed a Mt. Juliet comeback with 18 points, negating the five three-pointers and 19 points by Central’s Zack Markus as the Golden Bears got a payback victory over their rivals who rallied for a December victory at MJHS.
