A difficult second half of the boys basketball season continued Friday for Center Grove, but the Trojans are confident they have found a bit of a spark in the second part of Friday’s Metropolitan Conference matchup with visiting North Central.

Center Grove fell behind quickly and never recovered in a 69-51 MIC loss to the Class 4A No. 10 Panthers. But Trojans coach Cliff Hawkins thinks his team’s second-half effort and execution might just turn around the second half of the season.

After falling behind 36-15 at halftime, and trailing by as many as 28 in the third quarter, Center Grove outscored North Central 19-12 in the fourth quarter and 36-33 after the half.
