The Central Panthers are very young and love to run... "We are a defensive minded team," said Coach Time Kreta, "and we work on protecting the ball and making decisions that keep us in close games and allow us a chance to play the last two minutes."  Coach Kreta and his staff work hard to find systems that work for our team to put their players in positions to play their best basketball.... Despite being young, the Panthers are hard-working and athletic, led by sophomores Brooks Ferguson and Adrien Barba... "We would like to finish in the top 5 at the tournament and finish in the top three in league," said Coach Kreta... If things go well, a top three finish in the Mid-Willamette League and a trip to Gill Coliseum for the 5A State Tourney are feasible...
