Trojans stay unbeaten in GNRC in Reed’s 100th game

Senior Captain Alex Reed pours in 21 in his 100th career varsity game & Garner blasts Knightdale 87-41. Trayvon Ferrell scores 19, KD Burt 17 & Donovan Evans 11 points off the bench leads the Trojans to their 49th consecutive conference win. Marque Maultsby records his 2nd consecutive double-figure assist night with 11 dimes. Reed joins Julius Barnes (’15) as the only Garner players to have played in 100 varsity games in the program history. In typical Trojan fashion, an oppressive defense causes 13 Knight turnovers as Knightdale shoots just 39%. The home team enjoys a 30-21 rebound margin, allowing numerous second chance buckets for 34-16 margin in points-in-the-paint. Uncharacteristically, Garner has a stellar night at the free throw line, hitting 16-19. Coach Eddie Gray earns career win #495 for the #4-ranked 4A team in this week’s NCPreps.com poll who improves to 13-2, 6-0 in the conference. They host GNRC foe SE Raleigh Thursday night.
