Well before the start of Thursday’s game with visiting McBee, North Central boys’ basketball coach Kerry Hayes was talking with one of his players and telling him the importance of getting off to a good start in the opening minutes of the contest. When the Knights headed to the locker room to get dressed for the game, their first-year head coach repeated his earlier sentiments to the team as a whole. The result was laying a first quarter --- 23-7 deficit --- egg.
