March 27, 2004 - Eastern Basketball Alliance (EBA) - Harrisburg Horizon News Release

HARRISBURG-March 27, 2004…It was more of the same for the Harrisburg Horizon last night as they cruised to a 112-88 win over the Schuylkill Fire Dogs. The win improved Harrisburg’s record to a league-best 4-0.

Willie Chandler scored 26 points and Kevin Rowe added 23 for the Horizon, who led by as many as 31 late in the game. Wendyl Daniel contributed 18 points and 13 rebounds.

Forward Jarad Mills scored a team-high 25 points for the Fire Dogs in the losing effort. Forward Cherron Jackson and guard Karim Francisco each had 16 points.

With the score tied at 15, Chandler scored eight straight points just before the first quarter expired. Harrisburg never trialed after that point, maintaining a comfortable lead throughout the game. A turnaround jump shot from forward Jamal Palmer extended Harrisburg’s lead to 20 midway through the third quarter.

Harrisburg’s average margin of victory this season is 23.5 points.
