The Santa Cruz Warriors split a pair of back-to-back home games this past weekend, defeating the Reno Bighorns 95-85 before falling to the Canton Charge, 104-85.
Dewayne Dedmon had another monster game, scoring a season high 27 points on 12-15 shooting while hauling in 19 rebounds. He was on fire with his jumper and was crashing the boards on offense, creating second-chance point opportunities for himself and his teammates. Daniel Nwaelele contributed 17 points, six rebounds and four assists as the Warriors had four players in double figures. They took the lead on a Dedmon hook shot at the 5:27 mark in the first quarter and did not trail for the rest of the game.
