CARBONDALE, Ill. (WAND) -- Central A&M's legendary class of seniors had one heck of a ride.

The Raiders' group went to State in basketball, then again in football just a few months later. Though the final leg of the ride ended without a return trip to the basketball state tournament, the group's legacy remains legendary.

Central A&M fell to another 30-win team, Goreville, at Southern Illinois' Banterra Center by a final score of 71-64 in Tuesday night's Class 1A Super-Sectional game.

In this WAND report by Mark Pearson, he takes you inside the game itself plus he interviews the team about its off-the-court bonds.
