At the end of the half, Antoine Tisby and Kevin Francis led the Mill Rats in points with 13 and 11, respectively.

Tonight the crowd at Harbour Station saw minutes from every player. Newly signed guard Calvin Cage from Bowie, MD, with 7 assists and 7 points, was the game's leader in assists.

"It was a total team effort tonight. Everybody contributed from the entire bench. We did a good job cooling off a hot team coming off their first win," said Assistant Coach Jim Palmer.

Head Coach Jaren Jackson added, "It was a merry win for the Mill Rats. For the first time we got production in the beginning of the game. We really came out and were able to get a good start. We had trouble with that in past games and in that sense, I'm really excited to move forward."
