    LINCOLN CITY—On paper, Monday’s Tell City versus Perry Central matchup in the PSC Girls Holiday Tip-Off tourney appeared to be pretty even.
    But the absence of Tell City’s McKenzie and Kassidie Hayes due to the flu left Tell City without the size to match up with 6-foot-1 Perry Central center Ashley Graves. Graves dominated inside with 18 points and 18 rebounds as Perry Central won 49-28.
    Perry Central also played strong defense, using mostly a 1-3-1 zone with quick Brittany Parker out front and Graves on the back.
