Chargers Defeat Southern State 103-53

The Edison State Community College men's basketball team won their tenth game of the season defeating Southern State Community College at home Wednesday 103-53.

After a slow start in the first eight minutes of play, the Chargers came alive, took a commanding lead, and never looked back.

"Our full-court defense looked much better tonight and we showed signs of good team play," commented coach Hickman.

The Chargers defense forced 26 turnovers and only coughed the ball up on three occasions. On the offensive end, Edison State shared the ball well by chalking up 26 team assists with Dakota Prichard (Spencerville HS) leading in that category with six. 

The Chargers had four players in double-figure scoring with Jalen Elliott (Bowsher HS) leading that column with 26. Darryl Robinson (Bowsher HS) added 15. JaBryel Reed (Clark Montessori HS) scored 11, and Hadith Tiggs (Wayne HS) added 10. 

Edison State moves to 10-2 on the year. Next up, the Chargers will play at home versus Wright Patt Air Force Base on Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
