Top-ranked Trojans down #2 Millbrook


Garner rallies for the 62-59 win over Millbrook to open the year 3-0. Garner downs their third straight ranked team after leaping the #2 Wildcats for the top spot in the area polls. Milan Harrison 3 with 1:02 left completes the comeback after the Trojans trailed by as much as 12 in their poorest shooting night in 3 years. Harrison jumper puts Garner ahead with 17 seconds left, the Trojans first lead of the night and Demetric Horton free throw with 7 seconds left seals the win. Senior captain Alex Reed leads Coach Gray’s Trojans with 27 and pulls down 12 rebounds for his 3rd consecutive double-double to open the year. Trayvon Ferrell adds 10 & KD Burt records 9 boards, with 8 points. The very unusual 3rd quarter, after the Trojans posted just 9 points in the 2nd (lowest quarter scoring since 2011) saw both teams go on 9-0 & 6-0 runs. Garner completes their comeback with 23-13 final stanza with Reed scoring 9 & capped by Harrison’s two big shots for the win. The Trojans plays NW Guilford Saturday in the PhenomHoops Showcase back at Millbrook, 6:30PM tipoff.
