    “We faced some adversity in the first half and got off to a rough start,” Chrisman coach John Vickers said. “We had a nice discussion at halftime and got back to playing like we are capable of. Our defense was a lot better and we shared the ball well. Everyone who played made solid contributions.”
    Chris Horn led Chrisman with 21 points as he splashed six 3-pointers. Eli Alvis and Alex Ball added 10 points apiece.
