  • Chargers: The Chargers fall in the championship game 75-65 to the Titans of Central Georgia Tech. The Chargers plagued by foul trouble early in the game, GCAA All Region player Khalyl Waters got two fouls in the first 2:00 minutes of the game and his third just before the half Coach Gaffney had to sit Waters for the rest of the half. The Titans went on a 10 point run with 7:43 left in the first half to take a 24-14 lead. The Chargers cut the lead to 29-24 at the half. The Chargers had a tough first half offensively shooting only 32% from the field and only 1 of 11 from the three point line. In the second half it was all Central Georgia with the Titans extending their lead to as many as 19 points with 4:47 to go. The Chargers didn’t give up battling to cut the Titans lead to 8, 73-65 but that was as close as the Chargers would come. Playing in his last game as a Charger sophomore Khalyl Waters led the GHC with 18 points, Carl Johnson added 16 points, and Derrick Cook 10 points. The Chargers end the season with a 23-10 record.
