Player of the game, senior guard Sawyer Pauly, talked to us after the game about his night and about the team’s ability to win the rebounds down low. Pauly told us, “Chatham prides themselves on being scrappy and playing very fast so we tried to limit their transition offense by sprinting back on defense every time they had the ball. About the rebounds, our team works every day in practice on rebounding and it is a second nature to us at this point. We pride ourselves on being aggressive down low and trying to out rebound every opponent we face and tonight we were able to achieve that.” Catching up with head coach Drew Cooper after the game and getting his thoughts he told us, “Chatham plays so extremely hard. They scratch and claw and just have remarkable passion. Anytime you can win on the road in the conference against a team like that it’s a great thing.” The Cougars of Chatham University were led by sophomore guard Isaiah Brown, who finished with the game high 20 points. Other leading scores for Chatham were sophomore guard/forward Alex Schoppen, who finished with 18, sophomore guard Josh Randall, who finished with 14 and sophomore guard Nasir Alexander who finished with 6.
