Turnovers told the story on Wednesday night in Hutchinson, as the 2-seed Salthawks forced Central into a bevy of giveaways, leading to a runaway win in the 5A Boys Sub-State.
Ethan Waters would lead Salina Central’s offense, scoring 19 points in his final game, more than half of the Central output as a whole.
