Columbia

Badly needing a win against 10 -1 Howard CC, a national tournament team last year, Garrett won a fiercely contested double overtime game 91 - 86.  Game time was moved up 5 hours and with little rest the team responded by winning the battle of the free throw line hitting 33 of 44 free throws and sealing the win in the paint.  6'6 forward Frank Holloway finished with 27 points, 7 of 8 from the line and 4 of 8 from three point range.  Point guard Corey Groom knocked down 14 of 18 free throws for a total of 18 points and 4 assists.  Deandre Davis added 17 points and 10 boards.  Lakers head into a three week Christmas break 8 -3.
