Andre Emmett led the Bighorns with 16 points and eight rebounds while Mo Charlo once again posted a double-double with 14 points and 14 rebounds. The Bighorns went an impressive 3-1 on their four-game road trip.
The Bighorns were held to only 37.3 percent shooting on the night, converting on only 3-of-20 three-point attempts. The team turned the ball over 22 times and dished out only 12 total assists.
The Bighorns missed the offensive spark of the NBA D-League’s leading scorer Blake Ahearn, who missed the game due to illness.
