EAST FORSYTH 64
*****The most impressive thing to me tonight, as Greensborosports.com observer/viewer, was the Rebounding effort of Keaton Haack….The kid can control the flow of the game with his control of the boards….Big-time defensive rebounder…..Makes possesions become one-and-done for the opposing team….*****(GSO.com/GSPN comments here)
