Luke Harangody Named Co-Performer of the Week
Canton Charge forward Luke Harangody (6-8, 245, Notre Dame) has been named the NBA Development League Co-Performer of the Week along with Erie guard Donald Sloan for games played from March 5-11, the league announced today. Harangody averaged 24.3 points on .560 shooting with 14.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.7 blocks in 38.3 minutes per contest. The Charge were 3-0 in games played last week and have won 12 of their last 16 overall.
Harangody had a double-double with 24 points, 16 rebounds and three blocks in 42 minutes during a 106-101 road victory at Springfield on March 8th.

He had a season-high 30 points on 11-of-17 shooting with nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 37 minutes in a 125-100 victory over Reno on March 12th.
