Central Tournament Trivia:

Since returning to the tournament field in 2010, the Panthers are 10-10.

Last year made the fifth straight in which Central met up with Metamora. Only one of those meetings was in the opening round. The Redbirds won all five of those matchups.

This is the Central's fifth stint in the tournament field since the M-WHT expanded to 16 teams in 1969. Central has participated 1969-73, 1975-85, 1989-94, 1999-2004, and 2010 to present.

Among current tournament partcipants, only Macomb (163), Pittsfield (146) and Canton (131) have played more tournament contests than Central (90).

In those 90 games, the Panthers are 34-56 (.378) including a 1-12 stretch from 1999-2004.

Jeff Nielsen shares the tournament record of 24 rebounds in a game. (vs. Winchester 1975). That record is also held by Metamora's R.J. Romani (1995). Nielson finished the 1975 tournament with a total of 78 rebounds which is also a tournament record.
