Xavier Grissett was recognized at sophomore night Sunday at Sandhills Community College. Grissett, a 2016 Pirate graduate, was a stand out in Lumberton on the basketball court as a top blocker in the state.
Sophomore night at a community college is their “senior” night. Grissett will graduate this year. All athletes hope for a great performance senior night, and Grissett had a great one! “Early in the second half, Grissett was a part of a play that left a smile on the face of the 6-foot-6 forward and his teammates that was hard to erase. Cutting toward the basket from the opposite side, he received an alley-oop pass from Morrisette-Barnett. The timing was perfect and he dunked the ball for two of his eight points to go with four boards and two blocked shots.” (The Pilot)
The team won the NJCAA DIII District VII Championship. The photo below shows Grissett cutting the net.
