Less than 24 hours after leading her John Hardin team to a home upset over Marion County, Lady Bulldog 5-5 point guard Keisha Compton signed with coach Ginger Colivn and the Campbellsville University Lady Tigers.

"I liked how the campus was set up," Compton said of her decision to sign with CU. "It's small and it's close to home.

"I also liked the way they play. They run and that fits me well.

"I looked at some other schools, but none of them excited me the way Campbellsville did."

Compton, who plans to major in psychology, says her strength is her quickness and she likes to handle the ball.

She said she needs to get stronger and improve her ballhandling, shooting and defense.

Compton had 19 points, eight rebounds and five assists over Marion County, which was the Lady Knights' first loss vs. Fifth Region foes.

"It was just her usual game," John Hardin coach Bryan Todd said. "I was really proud of her eight rebounds. We needed all of them.

"She's been consistent all year long. She hadn't had many off nights."

On the year, Compton averages 19.5 points while shooting 50.5 percent from the field and 69.4 at the charity stripe.
