Century Junior High School’s eighth-grade boys basketball team picked up the sixth seed in the South West Interscholastic Conference Tournament but there were some opponents that knew the team was dangerous because of injuries during the regular season.

The Wildcats had a hard climb, but pulled off four wins including a 48-36 championship victory over top-seeded Grissom on Saturday, March 9, at Liberty Jr. High in Burbank.

Marvin Lingan scored 17 points for the champions while Niko Abusara added seven.
