Six players scored in double figures for the Pioneers (1-1) while Antonio Cannon was the only player to reach double figures for Ancilla (1-1) with 16 points.
The Chargers were sharp early on, opening the game with a 7-0 lead.Â After that, however, the game belonged to Delta.
The Pioneers led 51-33 at the half, holding Ancilla to just 33 percent shooting in the first 20 minutes.Â Delta also forced the Chargers into 21 turnovers while only committing 12 throughout the game.
â€śDelta has a good team and really exposed a lot of our weaknesses,â€ť said Ancilla head coach Greg Neeley.Â â€śWe have to learn from this if we want to be a good basketball team.â€ť
The Chargers will resume play on Saturday, November 20 when they host Edison Community College as part of a menâ€™s and womenâ€™s doubleheader at the LifePlex in Plymouth.Â The women will tipoff at 1:00 p.m., followed by a 3:00 p.m. tipoff for the men.Â Both games will be broadcast by local radio station WTCA AM1050 and can also be heard at www.am1050.com
