Glenn Hills Stays One Step Ahead
Nearly a month ago, Glenn Hills earned one of the season's most exciting victories, a 64-62 overtime win over Laney. Surprisingly, Spartan head coach Travis Mcrae expressed satisfaction during the post game interview that the score after one quarter of that game was 7-1 in Laney's favor. "I didn't mind that we had scored one point. I was pleased that we had held them to seven," explained Mcrae. "I knew we would find a way to score points."
Coach Mcrae's philosophy this season has been straight forward and effective: play great defense to have a chance to win whether or not the shots fall. On Tuesday this plan worked brilliantly as Glenn Hills remained in the game despite a cold shooting first half before warming up to drill 5 second half three pointers.
Junior guard Aubrey Mcrae led all scorers with 18 points and senior Naquan Turner added 16. Burke County's Jermaine Baxley finished with 10 points.
