Comments: GTCC struggled early in the contest, and trailed 40-23 at halftime. They found their way after the break, and shot over 50% from the field in the second half.

Carmoni Marks and Barkim Moses did most of the damage in the first 13 minutes of the second half, while Mike Scott and Kaleel Walton scored all but 3 of the final 18 Titan points.

A Tim Kilpatrick bucket and free throw gave the Titans their first lead, 59-58, at the 4 minute mark. The lead changed hands on each ensuing possessing, with Scott scoring 3 consecutive baskets for GTCC. A Walton basket with 1:15 remaining tied the score again at 67. GTCC followed that with a big defensive stop, rebounding the ball with 16 seconds remaining.

Holding for the last shot, Walton was fouled as he attempted to drive the lane. He sank the second free throw for the lead with 4 seconds remaining, and Barkim Moses intercepted the inbounds pass to seal the victory.

Next game is on 12/4/15, when the Titans travel to Louisburg College for a 7:00 tip vs the 19th ranked Hurricanes.
