Biggs Lead Charge to First-Ever Win

In their first two games – both losses – the Charge surrendered big runs after intermission that spelled their demise. On Saturday night, Canton turned the tables and reversed their fortunes, netting the first win in the team’s young history – a 108-87 decision over Texas.

Canton took an eight-point lead into the locker room, but the Legends – which topped the Charge on Friday night – used a 6-0 run to draw to within a deuce. At that point, the Charge kicked it into gear, closing the third quarter on a 24-11 run to give Alex Jensen’s squad all the breathing room they’d need.

After leading all scorers on Friday, top pick Tyrell Biggs did one better in Saturday’s win – notching 24 points on 10-for-17 shooting and leading Canton in rebounding with nine.

Four Charge starters tallied double-figures, with Travis Franklin coming off the bench to notch 18 points, seven boards and four helpers – going 8-of-9 from the floor.

Texas guard Booker Woodfox led four Legends in double-figures with 23 points off the bench, going 9-for-19 from the floor. Vance Cooksey finished with 15 points and a team-high eight assists and Lawrence Hill and Ronald Allen notched nine boards apiece.

Canton’s Marcus Relphorde tallied 17 points in the win, with Tyrone Kent pitching in with 16 points and a team-high three steals.

Canton native Keith McLeod led his team with eight assists to go with 12 points. Every Charge player except recent addition Kyle Gibson got in the scoring column for Canton.

The Charge welcome the Fort Wayne Mad Ants to town on Wednesday night.
