Horton had 22 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocked shots, all career highs. Blackwood added 26 points and seven assists for the Blue Devils (6-10, 2-3 Northeast Conference).
Cale Nelson led the Red Flash (3-12, 1-3) with 20 points and had the visitors ahead early. Nelson scored his team's first seven points for a 7-2 lead.
But Blackwood's 3-point play and his assist to Horton for a layup capped a 13-2 run and Central was up 15-9 and never relinquished the lead. The Blue Devils had a 45-29 lead at the break.
