Charge End Season Even with Franchise Record
The Canton Charge (31-19), presented by SecureData 365 and powered by the Cleveland Cavaliers, ended the 2015-16 regular season with a 107-105 loss at the Raptors 905 at the Hershey Centre on Friday night. Canton's 31 wins tie the franchise record set last year in Head Coach Jordi Fernandez's first year leading the team.
The Charge had two attempts before the game's final buzzer to tie or take the lead after trailing by 10 with less than three minutes to play. Quinn Cook's three-pointer attempt and a 15-foot jump shot from Chris Crawford both missed the mark after Canton's defense got six straight stops to end the game and pull within two. The Charge will begin the playoffs at home on Tuesday, April 1st at 7:00 p.m.
Cook finished with 22 points, nine rebounds, and 11 assists in 39 minutes for Canton. John Holland hit 11-of-20 shots for 27 points in 39 minutes. The Charge dished out a season-high 33 assists on 42 field goals made. Juvonte Reddic posted a double-double of 17 points and 10 boards in 27 minutes.
Raptors 905 was led by Scott Suggs, scoring 30 points and grabbing eight rebounds in 45 minutes. Davion Berry hit 9-of-14 shots for 23 points. E.J. Singler came off the bench to score 20 points and grab 13 rebounds in 35 minutes for the 905.
