But Monday afternoon Central hosted Joplin in non-conference girls game.
Central looking to move above .500 at the Pit.
And Joplin out to a quick start, the kickout to Katie Sticklen and the freshman nails the three, it's 5-one Eagles.
Central fighting back, Savannah Rush to Tyanna Stiles for the layup, it's a two point deficit.
Then the Bulldogs on the run, Jaslyn Williams off the mark, but Leann Cody is there for the board and the basket, we're tied at seven.
Joplin's freshman Sticklen, with another three, this from the corner, the Eagles up 13-12 after one.
