Twice this NWAC men’s basketball season Centralia College has surpassed 90 points in game.

The first time freshman Brayton Keith of Anchorage didn’t score a point.

This time, though, he got involved in the scoring frenzy.

The 6-foot guard was recently inserted into the starting lineup and against Grays Harbor he make the most of his opportunity, scoring a season-high 14 points as Centralia posted a 98-88 victory.

Keith, of East High fame, nailed 3-of-4 3s and 3-of-4 free throws in a season-high 26 minutes. The points, the playing time, the 3s, the foul shots were all season highs.

It was the first time he cracked double figures as a college player in 17 games.

Keith is averaging 3.9 points per game in limited playing time. Play the kid more and it looks like he will score more.
