Wake Forest-Rolesville couldn't miss on Monday night and they used the home crowd at Larry Lindsay Gymnasium to hand Garner their first loss of the year, 80-62.

The Cougars (8-2) jumped out to an early 11-4 lead in the first quarter and were able to survive a quick Garner run to close the first quarter up 21-19. But, Dominique Reed was the steady hand for the Trojans in the first quarter scoring 10 of his game high 21 in the opening period.

Garner (7-1) tried to cut into the lead into the second quarter as they went on a 5-0 spurt midway through the stanza. However, the Cougars were able to extend the advantage to 10-points at 38-28 at the break.

But after halftime everything went the way of the Cougars and the Trojans didn't have an answer as Wake Forest took a 56-40 after three.

The fourth quarter was more of the same as the Cougars handed Garner their first loss of the season 80-62.
