LOUISBURG — Fayetteville Tech men’s basketball dropped a 78-72 loss at Louisburg on Nov. 20, halting a two-game winning streak and moving the Trojans to 2-4 overall and 1-2 against Region 10 opponents.
The Trojans nursed a 38-37 lead at the half but couldn’t curtail a late surge of timely shooting by the Hurricanes, who pulled away down the stretch for the win.
The loss came despite a game-high 15 points from freshman guard Collin Lewis, whose night included three 3-points and six rebounds.
Perhaps key in the Trojans’ loss was an off night at the free-throw line, where the team shot just 50 percent. The Trojans average 65 percent on the season.
The Hurricanes went 13-for-19 from the foul line on the night, a 68.4 percent performance.
The Trojans continue their six-game road trip Tuesday, Nov. 26, at Guilford Tech. After stops at Vance-Granville and Lenoir CC, they’ll return home Dec. 8.
