Trojans survive first round to advance in NCHSSA

Demetric Horton snags the biggest rebound of his Trojan career on Riverside missed free throw with 1.3 seconds left in Garner 80-78 win in their NCHSAA opener. The Pirates shoot a blistering 68% to threaten the Trojans (26-2) on their home floor where they entered 12-0 this season. KD Burt leads Garner with 26 points and 11 rebounds. Senior captain Alex Reed and Horton 18 points each. Garner uses 25-18 rebound margin to limit second chances but the hot shooting Pirates didn’t need many, including a stellar 6-9 from the arc for the upset bid. The Pirates tie it at 68-68 with 3:40 left before Reed and Trayvon Ferrell drive for two each and 72-68 Garner lead. After a Pirate 3, Corey Marrow dishes to Burt to increase the lead to 74-71 at 1:11 left. Horton BIG 3 from the corner is matched yet again by Riverside to make it 77-74 with 50 seconds to go. Reed FT and a big time fast break slam by Burt give the good guys a margin they need after a terrible foul call on Ferrell on Horton’s clutch block just 1.3 left. The Pirates make just one of three FTs before Horton snags the clinching rebound and send the GNRC Champions to the second round.  The 3-seed Garner will host Broughton Thursday night 7PM. Caps upset Hillside 44-42.
