RICHLANDS, VA — Fayetteville Tech men’s basketball won their second straight victory, cruising past Southwest Virginia 95-77 on Sunday, Nov. 17.
Jawon Eddie, a 6-foot-9 freshman out of Raleigh, powered the Trojans with a game-high 21 points and 14 rebounds, recording his second double-double of the season.
In their second road game in as many days, the Trojans jumped out early, carrying a nine-point lead into halftime at 44-35.
The Trojans’ second-half performance was aided by a strong night at the foul line. FTCC went 17-for-20 from the stripe in the game, shooting 85 percent as a team.
Lewis scored 10 and led the Trojans with five assists.
The Trojans continue their road stretch with a game at Louisburg on Nov. 20, the first of four remaining away games before they return home to Reid Ross Classical on Dec. 8.
