Sophomore Deandrey Robinson (Peoria, Ill./Peoria) had 12 points and 11 rebounds for his 11th double-double of the year and sixth in the last seven games. Freshman Noah Young (Colfax, Ill./Ridgeview) had 12 points and a season-best 10 boards to collect his first double-double as a Charger. It was also Young’s fourth straight game scoring in double figures.

Freshman Carter Fayhee (Macomb, Ill./Macomb) had 16 points and eight boards while shooting 7 of 11 from the field. Freshman Scott Gowan (Rockford, Ill./Rockford East) had 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting and Ben Stipp (Abingdon, Ill./Abingdon-Avon) went 4 for 5 for 10 points for Sandburg.
