HOWARD — Thursday was a story of second chances for the Centerburg Trojans girls basketball team. At times, it was about third, fourth and fifth chances.

The Trojans (1-2) put on a rebound show, pulling down 44 as a team, including 26 of them on the offensive end of the court. Senior guard Kendall Compton put up 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for a double-double to lead the Trojans over the host East Knox Bulldogs (1-3) in their non-conference game, 62-35.

The Trojans were 22-for-62 from 2-point range, with many of those missed shots being putbacks that just would not go through. The extra rebounds gave Centerburg the chances they needed to finally score and also allowed them to hold onto the ball longer.
