Despite the Chargers losing twice last week, Hadith Tiggs (Wayne HS) averaged 22.5 points on 17-for-27 shooting along with nine rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.5 steals per game last week for Edison State.
In a 94-69 loss to Cincinnati State, Tiggs had 22 points, nine rebounds, two assists and one steal. Then, in an 81-76 loss at Sinclair, he had 23 points, nine rebounds, and three assists.
