This was the Game of the Year candidate as Greensboro College battled back and did they tie the game up on a last-second shot?????

The officials said the last GC basket was good, but after a brief discussion the officials went upstairs to Bob Lowe, GC SID, and to the UStream broadcast review, and after looking at the tape, they declared the last basket was good and we were headed to overtime, in what may go down as the best game in Greensboro this year, better than the ACC tournament game or any other basketball contest in our city this year….

GC grad-Tom Shalley(recently retired from the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department) was there, former GC AD Kim Strable was there, Mr. Matthew Craven from the Greensboro College staff was there and so were a large group of Greensboro College students that raised the roof on that old Hanes Gymnasium when the officials finally called that last basket good…

You would have thought that the building might be coming down by the energy the crowd showed when the officials showed the three-point signal, for basket good…..

This might easily qualify as one of the most exciting games in Greensboro College basketball history and this might be in the top five of the most exciting games in the history of basketball in Greensboro….

The final was Ferrum 82, Greensboro College 78…..

Greensboro College was down at times in the first half by 10-15 points, but they battled back and had a chance late in the game and they even got two looks at the basket on their last possession and on the final shot with the Greensboro College Pride trailing by three, they hit the three to tie the game and send it into overtime….

Greensboro College couldn’t pull it out in OT, but this still will go down as one of the best games this season in our city….As former Ledford/High Point University player Brett Speight used to call these; it was the Game of the Week, the Game of the Month and the Game of the Year, all rolled into one……

More details to follow from the Greensboro College staff….

    Greensboro College will be the team to beat in the tournament. Their young guys are really coming on and I think Tijani will be the man that steps up and coming from Page High School he can do it.
