Four turnovers, three double-figure scorers, two career-highlight performances, one team.

In Saturday’s 85-42 win at Mitchell, the Class 3A No. 6 Brownstown Central boys basketball team didn’t commit a turnover until the second half. Senior Brett McCory finished with his first triple-double — 16 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds — and senior Skylar Thompson scored a career-high 24 points, while junior Chaz Schneider ­

added 20.

McCory has scored in double figures in all five games this season, while Schneider and Thompson have recorded double-digit scoring four times each.

“When we don’t turn the ball over and we rebound as well as we have, good things are going to happen for this team offensively,” Braves coach Dave Benter said. “This team, through five games, has been so unselfish. They’ve been a lot of fun to watch because of how they’ve made the extra pass.
