Chaps defeat Rams in Walker complex debut

By   /   January 18, 2013  /   No Comments

Sophomore guard Jon Harris knocks down a fadeaway jumper at Saturday’s game.

After a rough month of December in which they went 2-5 and splitting the first two games of January, the Chaps were looking for a win in their Walker Sports Complex debut.

The Chaps began to hit their stride midway through the first half sparked by a series of offensive surges by guard Delbert Williams.

Williams led the Chaps on a 10-0 run with a tenacious drive to the basket and consecutive three-pointers, forcing the Rams to call a timeout.

But timeouts did not help the Wright team as their sloppy play continued while the Chaps kept on extending their lead.

Once this lead was established, the Chaps never lost it.

In fact, it seemed as though Wright guard Darious Randolph was the only one keeping the Rams in the game.

The Chaps won the game 64-51 bringing their home record on the season to 6-2.

Wednesday’s game was not as pretty for the Chaps as they fell to Rock Valley College 69-52.

Forward Denzel Washington led the Chaps scoring 21 points off the bench, but the team as a whole shot only 35 percent from the field.

The Chaps are now 8-11 and will play conference rival Harper Hawks Saturday, Jan. 19.
