The Canton Charge finished their homestand strong with a 107-90 victory over the Delaware 87ers (3-7) at the Memorial Civic Center on Saturday night. The win was Canton's sixth in their last seven games.

The 87ers jumped to an early 26-24 lead after one period of play. Canton proceeded to outscore the visitors 24-18 in the second stanza and never looked back. A season-high 39-point third quarter for the home team, which included buckets on nine of ten possessions at one point, gave the Charge an 87-70 advantage heading into the fourth quarter. Canton led by double digits for the final 16:48 of the game, as they handed Delaware their sixth-straight loss.

Five Charge players scored in double figures led by Stephen Holt's season-high 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting in 34 minutes of action. Cavaliers assignee Alex Kirk registered his fourth double-double of the season, scoring 20 points and grabbing 11 rebounds with three blocks in 33 minutes. Arinze Onuaku came off the bench to add 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting with eight boards in 22 minutes. Canton dished out 24 assists as a team in tonight's contest.

Delaware's Drew Gordon, a college teammate of Kirk's at New Mexico, led the 87ers with 21 points on 9-of-13 shooting with eight rebounds in a 40 minutes. Malcolm Lee, fresh off of a stint with the Philadelphia 76ers, poured in 16 points all the while adding five dimes off the bench in his return to the 87ers.

The Charge hit the road to end the weekend with a matchup at the Maine Red Claws (Boston Celtics Affiliate) December 14 at 5:00 p.m.
