City of Palms: Omaha Central 62, Eagles' Landing (Ga.) 37

Omaha Central defeated Georgia-Eagles' Landing 62-37

Omaha (Neb.) Central tied a Nebraska state record for consecutive wins on Tuesday, torching McDonough (Ga.) Eagle’s Landing 62-37.

Omaha Central won its 41st consecutive game as Louisville-bound senior Akoy Agau scored 16 points, and Tra-Deon Hollins finished with 12 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals. Tre’Shawn Thurman also recorded 12 points and eight rebounds of his own, along with two blocks and four assists. Kevin Scott contributed 11 points and five rebounds.

“It’s definitely exciting,” Agau said after the win. This is something no team in Nebraska has ever done before, so it is definitely a privilege. That's only the first win. We got to keep on working hard and come back the next time we play and play the same way we did, and try and get more wins.”

Omaha Central is currently ranked No. 22 in the ESPN Power Rankings, and it looks like Agau and his teammates could see their school’s name a few spots higher next week.

On the other hand, the Golden Eagles just couldn’t seem to buy a basket for much of the game. Only Trevin Joseph scored in double digits, as he finished with 12 points. Desmond Ringer put up nine points and 11 rebounds, moving well in the low post but unable to finish at the basket. Middle Tennessee State commit Eric Wortham went cold, finishing with five points on 2-for-9 shooting and four fouls.

The Golden Eagles turned the ball over 19 times, compared to 11 turnovers for Omaha.
