Congratulations to Coach Johnson and the Generals on opening the season 5 and 0 and bringing home the Hewitt-Trussville Tip-off Tournament trophy with a 79 – 58 victory over the hosts Hewitt-Trussville. Jon’datric Butler and Quinterrius Rivers led the Generals with 22 points each and Henry Ruggs III added 10.
The Generals overcame a sluggish start and found themselves down 37 – 35 at the half. As the previous four opponents have found out, this years version of Generals basketball just keeps coming at you from as deep as Coach Johnson is willing to go on the bench. Actually he is often not dressing a few extra players that could and will contribute throughout the season.
With the front end of the schedule heavily weighted with travelling, the Lee faithful will get plenty of at home action in the coming weeks. You WILL not want to miss what these student-athletes have to show on the court.
Another great day to be on Ann Street.
