CRC had no answer to the Williams big men, as Chase Norwood led the team with his first double-double of the season. He scored 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Eagles. Other big men Donovan Coleman and Maurice Templeton compiled impressive statistics as well. Coleman scored 13 points and collected nine rebounds and Templeton harnessed seven rebounds in eight minutes off the bench. The big men helped WBC outrebound CRC 59-39.
