SHELBYVILLE - Just seconds after C.J. Penny rammed home a thunderous dunk, exclaiming Anderson County's 60-53 win at Shelby County on Friday, his fellow students in the cheering section came up with one of the most creative yells in basketball history.
Turning to the junior's mom, seated a couple of sections away, they chanted, "Thank you, Stephanie! Thank you, Stephanie!"
There was little doubt that Penny's slam put some emphatic punctuation on a victory that has probably thrust the Bearcats into the role of Eighth Region favorite.
