Saturday's contest between Wake Tech and Fayetteville Tech lived up to the hype.

It was close throughout and the Trojans nearly closed the gap at the end of the game.

Jaren Ellerbe gave Wake Tech another outstanding line with 28 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 steals.

Michael Armstrong had an impressive 20 points and 9 rebounds.

Christian Anumihe cleaned up on the glass once again with 16 total rebounds to go along with 8 points.

For Wake Tech, the win keeps them undefeated in conference play.  Currently, the Eagles are sitting atop of the Region X, DII standings.

The next three games for the Eagles are on the road and are conference matchups.  With contests against Vance-Granville (Dec. 4), Bryant & Stratton (Dec. 8), & Patrick Henry (Dec. 13), Wake Tech can expect to be challenged by each upcoming opponent.
