Lance Huber's message to his team at halftime was simple.
"I just told them that the game was going to be won on the defensive end and we didn't do very well on defense in the first half and we had to get to that a little bit in the second half," Huber said.
The message resonated with his Dundee-Crown Chargers. They held Rochelle scoreless for more than 5 minutes to start the second half while completing an 18-0 run that carried them to a 64-51 victory in the opening game of the Leland G. Strombom Tournament in Sycamore.
Joshua Raby had 26 points and 7 rebounds for the Chargers in the season-opener for both teams.
D-C trailed 32-24 late in the first half. An old-fashioned 3-point play by Kennon Cook, his only points of the game, started the Chargers' comeback. D-C then scored 15 in a row to open the third quarter, taking a 42-32 lead.
