The Trojans are led by senior center Randy Javois, who is averaging 15 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. Junior guard J.R. Howell is off to a hot start for AC. Howell is shooting 60.6 percent from the field and 56 percent (14-25) from behind the arc. In their first four games, the Trojans have held the opposition to 42.7 percent from the field. The Lees-McRae men enter the game with a record of 0-4. The Lady Trojans are 1-1 after splitting a pair of games in West Virginia Nov. 18-19.
