Garner falls in Holiday Tourney finals

Garner stages an impressive comeback in the final quarter but falls 68-62 to top-ranked Heritage. Trailing the entire game and by 14 entering the final stanza, the Trojans rally to cut the Huskie lead to just 64-62 before ultimately succombing to the area leader. Donovan Evans has 8 huge points in the quarter, hitting free throws after a dismal 1-7 first half performance from the line by Garner (9-2), and big time 3 to get the Trojans close. Mehki Townes contributes 10 large off the bench for the David West Bracket runner-ups. Alex Reed (17 points tonight) and KD Burt (9 points, 10 rebounds) performance earn All-Tournament Team for three days of stellar play. Evans finishes with 10 points and 4 steals.
