The Edison State Men's Basketball Team exploded Saturday afternoon with a big win over Sinclair Community College 79-54.
"Our guys have been very close to upsetting some very good teams as of late, but falling a few points short. This win is a big confidence boost for our young men. Their team play continues to improve every game," said coach Hickman.
The Chargers took a 9 point lead into the locker room at intermission. "We talked at the half about how important the first 5 minutes of the 2nd period was and how the very talented Sinclair team was preparing to take the floor. I was very proud of how our guys responded to the challenge," said Hickman.
Everything seemed to go the Chargers way in the second half as their lead continued to grow. This game gave Edison State their 17th win on the season.
Hadith Tiggs (Wayne HS) and Dae'Shawn Jackson (Springfield HS) scored 19 and 18 points respectively to lead the Chargers in scoring. Nick Thompson (Tipp City) added 12 points and lead the team in assists with 5. Romello Yaqub (Troy HS) added 11 points for the chargers while Zach Ledbetter (Butler HS) went 3 of 6 from the arc with 9 points.
The Chargers finished out the regular season with a 17-13 record and will face Sinclair on the road Tuesday at 7:30 pm for a rematch in the first round of the OCCAC conference tournament.
