The Charles Henderson Trojans knocked off Rehobeth 61-29 in a key area showdown on Friday evening in Troy.

The win for the Trojans put them in a prime situation to at least finish in a tie for the regular season championship. Couple the win with a Greenville loss and the Trojans would win it outright.

Greenville, however, beat the Eagles by three to force a coin flip on Monday to determine the top overall seed in the upcoming tournament. The top overall seed hosts the tournament.
