And on day one of the classic, host McEachern was in action as they took on the Hazel Green Trojans out of Hazel Green, Alabama in the first game of the day on the Indians' home court.


The Trojans jumped out to an early 8-2 lead in the first quarter, but the Indians would go on a 9-0 run to close out the first quarter with an 11-8 lead. The second quarter the two teams would go back and forth with a couple of lead changes, however McEachern would hold on to a 20-18 lead to close out the quarter despite being outscored 10-9 in the period. As the third quarter got underway, Hazel Green would start the period with

a 9-4 run to regain the lead as they went up 27-24. The Indians would respond with a quick 5-2 run to tie the game at 29-29, but the Trojans would regain control to take a 34-31 lead at the end of the quarter.



Heading into the final period of play, Hazel Green would have their most dominate quarter of the night as they would be in control down the stretch, outscoring McEachern 16-9 and would on to pick up the 50-40 victory for their fourth straight win. "Afiba puts on the She Got Game event, this is our third time coming to it now, it's really good," Hazel Green head coach Tim Miller said of the Trojans participating in the annual girl basketball event. "We get to play different competition from different states," Miller added as he expressed how the opportunity to have his team participate in the classic gives his players the chance to see how they measure up against some of the nation's top programs.


"We get to play different competition from different states that's really good. He's got us going to Washington DC next weekend," for another She Got Game Classic event, "and it's really good to go across these states and play good competition because it lets you know where you stand," Miller added. And as for their win on Friday, Miller credited his players for overcoming foul trouble and finding their "rhythm" down the stretch. "Once we could get our main players back in, we could get into some type of rhythm offensively and we started making some shots and making shots makes the game easier," Miller added.
