Freshman basketball downs New Life Storm 80-65

The Freshman team travels up to New Life Camp for 80-65 win over the Storm. Christian Little leads Garner very balanced scoring with 16, Jayleon Simmons 15, Darren Ngama 13 & Tom Horton, Rayvon Fussell 12 each. Horton leads on the boards with 9 boards, with Nolan McLean yanking 7, Fussell 6 for the Trojans. Garner starts fast, racing to 7-0 lead while the Storm misses their first seven shots. But New Life battles back to take 26-25 halftime lead. Garner dominates the glass in the second (32-25 rebound margin for the game) half to pull away for the win. An effective defensive press translates in multiple Storm turnovers and layups for the good guys who shoot 59% for the night (force 12 Storm turnovers while Garner has just 7).
