Gould, who transferred from Clay County before the season, is the most experienced player on the team in terms of high school minutes played, but she joined a starting five that included three sophomores and a junior who have all played together for a long time.
After averaging 21.3 points for the Panthers last season, Gould's transition onto a talented Sissonville roster could have been a bit rocky, but Skeen said that has been far from the case.
"They have really accepted her and it's been a really good fit," Skeen said. "You could see at the end that any one of them can handle the ball and do some things."
"Brittany has been good. She averaged more points last year at Clay and she's had to give up a little bit too, but it's a good dynamic. It's helped her, it's helped us - it's been good."
It was the second game in two days for Wheeling Central (8-6) after it won Friday night at Charleston Catholic.
The trip afforded the Maroon Knights the opportunity to square off with two quality teams, something coach Penn Kurtz said is important this time of year.
"That's what we want to do - our goal every year is to get ready for the state tournament," Kurtz said. "This is a good way to do it, come down here and play two good teams on the road and learn all the things you have to do when you travel. We'll build on this."
Regan Blaha led Central with 17 points on an efficient 6-for-11 shooting while Lindsey Baker had 13 points and 10 rebounds and MacKenzie Michaels chipped in with 10 points and eight boards.
