The annual alumni game, played during the GBC alumni weekend, was held saturday night before a great crowd at the Aldrich Center. This years squad proved to be a little too much for the former players. Paul Nelson poured in 24 points and Allen Durham added 21 and 11 rebounds to lead the 2008 team. Freshman Matt Kurtz addd 15, Brandon Clahassey had 10 points and 7 assists and freshman Cory Jamieson 11 points with 7 assists. Dan Dame added 10 points and freshman Ryan Krombeen pulled down 7 rebounds.
The Alumni was led by Jeff Forbes with 22 points. Aaron Huizinga added 11 while Jimmy Booth pulled down a team high 5 rebounds. Booth and Rodney Velting both dished out 4 assists.
The game was tight for the first fifteen minutes with the lead changing hands several times. The 2008 squad made a run just before the half to take a eighteen point lead to go into the locker room.
With 15 alumni coming out for the game and many more former players in attendance, it made for a great night of fun and basketball.
