  1. The Tuggle boys really have Gboro college playing some great basketball. I have played a lot of pickup with the Tuggles and they certainly know their basketball. My daughter and I try to make it to a couple of Gboro college games a year. This year’s squad is exceptionally good. If you haven’t had a chance to go to a game, you really need to go and see them. In the past, their hasn’t been an admission fee and it is a great place to bring the family. The men’s team normally plays right after the women so you can get to see two games. Go out and support the Pride. BTW, I also make it to a couple of Guilford college games. Go out and support the Quakers as well.
