"In looking at the box score, transition points and points in the paint stick out to me," Charger coach Lance Kading said after the win. "Our two main points of emphasis before the game were for our defense not to give up up easy baskets on the inside, and to get out and run our fast break. The guys did a great job at both, and we were able to get another conference win on the road."
The conference win is the eleventh of the season against three losses. The team's overall record improved to 15-4 for the season.
