Center Grove’s boys basketball team started Friday’s game as the aggressor against host Perry Meridian. In the second half, the Falcons played that role and rode it to a victory.

The Trojans committed just four first-half turnovers, but Perry Meridian’s aggressive back-court defense forced Center Grove into 10 second-half miscues. The Falcons, meanwhile, lost the ball just three times in the second half and converted several turnovers into fast-break baskets in a 56-52 comeback victory.

Center Grove (5-4) held a 45-38 lead after Michael Benkert hit a layup 11 seconds into the fourth quarter, but Perry Meridian (7-2) took control from there, outscoring the Trojans 14-1 during the next four minutes to take a 52-46 advantage.
