Asheville to retire Grant's jersey


Asheville High will retire the jersey of former Lee Edwards basketball great Larry “Go Go” Grant between its varsity games with North Buncombe on Friday.

Grant graduated in 1969 and led Lee Edwards to a 4-A state runner-up finish that year while averaging 18 points, eight assists and five rebounds a game.

Grant was a collegiate All-American for Western Carolina and scored more than 1,100 career points.

Friday’s ceremony at Asheville should begin at about 7:30 p.m. Since the Black Hawks do not have a junior-varsity girls team, the JV boys game starts at 4:30, followed by the varsity girls and boys.
