Both Kudelka and Crawford earned double-doubles on the score sheet. Kudelka netted 23 points, grabbed 11 rebounds in addition to making five steals. Crawford scored 17 points and took down 15 rebounds. Alex Santiago and Matt Panganiban both chipped in 13 points for Bishop Ahr.

JT Vento was the top scorer for the Chargers, netting 13 points for Spotswood. Fuzesi scored nine points while Nieskens added seven. Both Michael Harris and Justin Dekovics earned five points in the loss.
