Trojans advance to GNRC Tournament title game

Garner survives an ice cold shooting night to edge scrappy Rolesville 72-66 and advance to the GNRC Tournament title game vs Clayton. The Championship game will be played at Campbell University Thursday night 7:30PM. Trojans (24-2) manage just 37% shooting from the floor vs 53% for the Rams but a stellar defense creates 19 Rolesville turnovers leading to 32-of-37 free throw shooting for the top seed. KD Burt posts another double-double with 14pts / 10 rebounds. Senior captain Nick Kuhns is clutch with 12 first half points to keep the good guys within 2 at the break. Alex Reed posts 11 to send Garner to the championship game for the 4th straight time and position Coach Eddie Gray for a possible 15th conference title.
