Lewis Central’s Cole Drummond shoots as Glenwood’s Silas Bales defends during the second quarter of a game in early January.

Lewis Central erased an early first-half deficit Monday against Thomas Jefferson on its way to a 59-32 victory.

The Titans were down by three points after the first quarter but outscored the Yellow Jackets 49-19 over the final three quarters. Cole Drummond led L.C. with 11 points.

“We were a little better defensively after the first,” L.C. coach Dan Miller said. “We’ve been starting so poorly lately after the break. To the guys’ credit, they did a good job after that.”

Austin Schubert led T.J. with nine points.

“Throughout the second half, L.C. took advantage of their size and found easy baskets,” T.J. coach Nate Kreifels said.
