Gallatin, Tenn.- T.J. Cromer continued his hot start to the season hitting on 8 of 11 three-point shots and scoring 34 total points in the Columbia State Chargers (2-1, 1-0 TCCAA) 101-73 blowout victory over the home standing Volunteer State Pioneers. The Pioneers ran out to an early 7-2 lead but ended up trailing at halftime 60-39 as Cromer scored 19 points and center Ramond Jenkins added 14. The 60 points are the most in any half for the Chargers so far this season.

“We wanted to jump out fast being on the road and try to distribute minutes more since we have a game tomorrow,” said Head Coach Brian Collins. “This was his (Cromer) night. His shot was falling but there may be games when it won’t. We still aren’t where I want us to be. We will get there.”

Jenkins ended the night with 18 points and nine rebounds. T.J. Dunans and Antoine Williams added 13 apiece to round out the Chargers in double figures. Justin Pride added 11 assists.
