Johnathan Deal came up with some big steals and finished with 3 points as well. Jacob Deutsch was active on the boards and had 9 points. But it was Charlie Dice who kept the Trojans off balance with his ability to get inside. Dice finished with a game high of 17 points. Adam Cox, Joey Gutzwiller, Abe Peetz, Zeb Streator and Eli Tuveson saw significant playing time and provided sound support in the win.
