C.J. Penny was literally the chairman of the boards Saturday. The Anderson County High School graduate pulled down 25 rebounds to set a new single-game mark at Asbury University.

Penny snared 25 of his team's 44 boards to eclipse the old mark of 24, set by Art McMahon in 1998, according to a news release.

Penny also scored 15 points as the Eagles defeated Virginia-Lynchburg, 81-64.

“C.J. Has a natural nose for the ball,” Asbury coach Will Shouse, another Anderson grad, said in the release. “His willingness to chase down rebounds like he did tonight is a must for this team to get where we want to be by the end of the season.”
