College Park, Georgia - The College Park Skyhawks (14-10) clinched a decisive 110-102 victory over the Cleveland Charge (10-13) on Friday, sealing their triumph in a two-game series against the Charge.


A standout performance from Vit Krejci marked a historic moment as he secured his first career triple-double, amassing a career-high 12 assists, along with 10 points and 10 rebounds. This achievement marked the sixth triple-double in College Park history, the first since Brandon Williams on January 19, 2023. Krejci also showcased his defensive prowess with three steals and one block, contributing significantly in 35 minutes on the court.


Jordan Bowden and Chris Silva delivered stellar performances, each scoring 20 points. Bowden, in particular, led the charge with a game-high 23 points on 8-14 shooting in 26 minutes, while Silva contributed 20 points on 7-10 shooting from the field in the same duration. Since joining College Park on Feb. 12, Bowden has maintained an impressive three-point shooting percentage of .610% (25-41 3FGM).


AJ Griffin, Miles Norris, and Brandon Randolph also made substantial contributions, each scoring in double figures. Randolph notably matched his career-high with nine rebounds alongside his 13 points.


Although Cleveland initially took the lead with double-digit performances from Emoni Bates and Dexter Dennis in the first half, College Park mounted a remarkable comeback. Ending the first half with a 23-8 run, they entered halftime with a four-point lead. Krejci's stellar playmaking, including 10 assists in the first half alone, fueled the Skyhawks' resurgence.

The Skyhawks extended their lead to 20 points in the third quarter, propelled by Bowden's 10-point contribution. Despite Cleveland's attempts to narrow the gap, a combination of crucial free-throws from Rob Baker and a breakaway slam from Griffin secured the victory for College Park.


Cleveland's efforts were led by Pete Nance, who scored a team-high 18 points, and Dexter Dennis, who contributed 16 points and tied for the team-high with six rebounds.

With a 14-10 record heading into the final stretch of the regular season, the Skyhawks currently occupy the fifth position in the East, with 10 games remaining.
