Charge Enjoy Record-Breaking Victory
CANTON, OH - The Canton Charge (6-6), powered by the Cleveland Cavaliers, set multiple offensive franchise records in a 151-125 victory over the Long Island Nets (8-4) at the Memorial Civic Center on Thursday night.
Canton's 151 total points and 83 in the first half were both new franchise records, with the latter record having been set originally on Feb. 12th of 2012. The Charge hit 35-of-58 from the field (60%) in the first half and turned the ball over just three times. Canton moved the ball for a season-high 33 assists on 62 field goals, with Scoochie Smith becoming the fourth Charge player to dish out a franchise-best 16 assists in a single game, tying a mark set by Quinn Cook and tied twice last season by London Perrantes.
Four Charge players scored 20+ points, led by a season-high 25 from Bonzie Colson II with 11 boards in 24 minutes for his fourth double-double of the season. Levi Randolph netted a season-high 25 points on 10-of-13 shooting in 34 minutes off the bench. JaCorey Williams also came in off the bench to score 20 on 10-of-11 shooting with seven boards in 26 minutes. Kobi Simmons scored 20 points in 27 minutes to round out the quartet.
