Athlete of the Week: Madison Central's Minter
Madison Central's Isaiah Minter is the Fox 56 High School Sports Extra Athlete of the Week presented by Bluegrass Orthopaedics. Minter scored seven of his team's final eight points as the Indians erased a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit to defeat LCA, 45-44, Thursday night and advance to the 11th Region tournament semifinals. The junior had a game-high 16 points to go with three assists and two steals.
Down six with 5:26 remaining, Minter came up with a steal and got it to teammate Michael Roberts for a layup. Minter then scored the Indians' next seven points. With 3:58 left, he nailed a three to give Central a one-point advantage. After LCA regained the lead, Minter hit a jumper to tie the game at 44-all.
