Rend Lake Clinches GRAC
INA -- The Rend Lake Warriors are the only Division II team in the Great Rivers Athletic Conference.
Regardless the division, the Warriors are celebrating an outright GRAC championship after hammering Wabash Valley 98-72 Wednesday night.
Rend Lake scored early and often jumping out to a 23-4 lead and never looked back.
Wabash Valley did not reach double figures until there was eight and a half minutes left in the half.
Jeril Taylor's buzzer beating three gave the Lake its biggest lead of the half at 52-21, and the Warriors cruised from there to the 26-point win.
Noel Allen and Bronson Verhines each tallied 17 to lead the Warriors, who wrap up GRAC play Saturday at John A. Logan.
Rend Lake is now 21-3 on the season, 13-2 in the conference.
