I witnessed another great night of Anderson University Basketball last night. It was another double header night with Queens College of Charlotte. Last year saw a couple barn burning contests between these schools. The first meeting of 2009 was no less. The Lady Trojans rallied from well behind to win over the Lady Royals 68-65. The nail was driven in with two solid free throws with only 35 seconds left then a lay-up a foul and another free throw. The eleven remaining seconds were not enough for the visiting Royals. In the guys game the outcome was more assured. Taking the lead for good with 8 minutes left in the first half and never trailed again. The Royals tried hard but came up short in the second half as Anderson took them down 82-74. Food in the Trojan Club room was carved turkey and Mexican egg rolls.
