The West Central Trojans came to town Thursday, Feb. 27 for the final game of the regular season. Cold shooting from EPJ in the 3rd quarter let them leave with a 74-55 win.

The game was so much closer than that, as EPJ used Adam Grashoff to the max, with several beautiful lobs into him in the paint for easy points. The teams were tied at 15 to start the 2nd quarter, and West Central was pushing too hard to get the ball inside against a pernicious Husky defense. The Trojans also fouled heavily, putting the Huskies into the double bonus well before halftime, while EPJ had only 1 foul the entire half. The Huskies led 36-26 at the half.
