The Trojans bounced back from the loss in the opener with a 56-37 win over Metropolitan.

Tied at the end of the first quarter, coach David Disbro’s crew took a three point lead at halftime and it later grew to 40-33 by the end of the third. The Trojans sealed the win by outscoring their opponents 16-7 over the final eight minutes.

Payton Stonefield led the team with 21 points, six assists and nine rebounds. The EC senior also tied for a team-high in steals with three.

After a tough loss to Portage, the Trojans closed out the tournament with a 66-51 win over Tindley at Earlham College.
