Trojans score 100, again


Garner put five players in double-figures and scored 100 points for the second time this season as they blasted East Wake 103-45 on Tuesday night at Trojan Coliseum.

The Trojans (6-0, 2-0) got off to the races again taking a quick 9-0 lead before the Warriors (1-6, 0-2) called their first timeout midway through the opening quarter. However, that timeout did little to slow down Garner as the men of Troy went on an 8-0 run before East Wake called another timeout with 1:48 left in the quarter down 14-0. Following the timeout, the Warriors managed just three points and trailed 20-3 after the opening quarter.

The second quarter was more of the same for Garner who went on a 7-0 run to begin the stanza as Cameron Redd led the Trojans went 15 first half points, nine of which came in the second quarter as he finished with a career high 20 points to lead all scorers. But at the half, Garner led 46-20.

Garner turned it on once again in the second half as Dominique Reed poured in eight of his 12 points in the third quarter while Larry Richardson scored five of his 10 total in the third as well to lead Garner to a 72-30 lead after three.

With the fourth quarter underway, the only question left was could the Trojans hit the century mark? They answer was a resounding yes as Foster Dubar scored all six of his points in the final quarter and with less than a minute to play in the game, Patrick Henneghan hit a bucket to give the Trojans 100 points and after a free throw and one more lay up, Garner closed out a 103-45 victory.

This marks the second time this season that the Trojans have hit the century mark as 14 different players scored for Garner and every player saw the floor.

Garner will travel to Smithfield-Selma Friday night at 8:00 before they travel to the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville Saturday afternoon at 2:00 to take on Neuse Christian.
