Trojans hammer Fike


Garner opened up the home portion of their 2011-12 basketball season in grand style as Coach Gray the defending two-time Greater Neuse River champions placed six in double-figures as they hammered Wilson Fike 103-72 on Tuesday night at Trojan Coliseum.

Garner (2-0) fell behind 1-0 on an Aaron Sessoms free throw to begin the game and never looked back as they went on a 10-0 run over the next two and a half minutes to open up an nine point lead forcing Fike (0-4) head coach, Brent Seacrest to call a timeout.

But, before you could blink, Garner was running away with the game after the first quarter with a 22-7 lead.

Larry Richardson helped lead the Trojans in the first half with a couple of impressive dunks and a pair of three's to give the men of Troy a 52-24 halftime lead.

The third quarter belonged to Dominique Reed as the senior poured in 11 points in the stanza to finish with 25 points which led all scorers and gave the Trojans a 79-50 advantage after three.

In the fourth, Coach Gray emptied his bench allowing everyone to play as a team effort led Garner to the 103-72 win.

The Trojans return home on Friday night at 7:30 when they welcome Middle Creek to Trojan Coliseum.

However, the Lady Trojans cut the lead to three late in the game before Fike hit some late free throws to pick up the 50-40 win.

The Lady Trojans (1-1) will host Middle Creek on Friday at 6:00
