BRAWLEY — Central Union boys basketball coach Juan Valenzuela was visibly displeased with his team following its game here Friday night against the Brawley Union Wildcats, and they got an earful afterward despite edging out a 58-55 victory against their Imperial Valley League rivals.

Central entered the game with 7-7 overall and 2-0 in IVL play after defeating Calexico at home on Tuesday.
