Coach Jenkins says it doesn’t stop there. Eli Cleveland is averaging 14-points a game and five others average four points a game, so the Tiger’s have a lot of depth.

 

The Trojans are led offensively by Ryan Hawkins averaging 14.3 points a game, 51-steals on the season, 16-blocked shots and close to 8-rebounds per game. Freshman Garrett Franken is scoring 12.2 points a game and scored 22 against a very good Creston team in the win a little over a week ago. Franken is also pulling down about six rebounds a game as well. Joey Walker coming off of a 20-point performance against Clarinda last Tuesday night, enters tonight’s game averaging 10.7 points

 

Tip-off is slated for 7:30 p.m. We will have the broadcast on 95.7 f.m. Pre-game starts at around 7:15 p.m.
