The Chargers struggled in the first half offensively shooting 36% from the field and only 1 of 7 from the 3 point line but still only trailed 33-32 at the break. Gordon State pulled out to 9 points lead with 13.58 remaining in the second half but the Chargers battled back to send the game to overtime. In the overtime period the Chargers were 4 of 6 from the field and closed the game out for the win.
  • The Chargers rode the back of GCAA Freshman of the Year Carl Johnson‘s 31 points. “Johnson carried us tonight, what a tremendous effort by Carl.
