Chris Diehl hit a pair of three’s as Marcus Moody and Franqlin Gatson each contributed one. CCSJ found themselves up 52-38 with 15:23 left in the game.

Robert Jackson, Franqlin Gatson, and Brian Brilmeyer combined for 52 points on the night as they continue to impress. There was something to be said about the intensity that the Crimson Wave showed tonight as they hope to ride the momentum through the playoffs.
