The Jacksonville Giants are ready to keep pace with March Madness and continue their winning streak this weekend when they take on the Stampede for the 3rd time this season. The trilogy will come to an end Saturday, with each side having taken a game thus far after the Giants won the last meeting in late February.
The Giants are fresh off of a complete team performance in St. Augustine this past weekend, where they had 7 different players reach double digit points. Maurice Mickens led the way with 20 points, but Rob Hornsby’s 11 rebounds and Elijah Smith’s 4 blocks helped the Giants’ paint presence be known enough to grind out the 120-115 win.
It won’t get any easier for the defending champs as the Stampede are the only team to beat Jacksonville in the last 2 seasons, and will look to do it again as they seek to advance to the South Regional Finals!
Coach Jerrod Tucker looks to continue his historic coaching season, having only 1 loss in his debut season, and he will use his championship DNA to help the unit gut out a couple more wins as the playoffs in Baltimore continue to loom on the horizon.
The season is coming down to the wire, and the Giants will need your support so make sure and show up and show out this Saturday, March 26th, at 6PM.
