By the end of the game — which the Red Claws won 125-93 over the Capital City Go-Go (Wizards) — Fall logged another double-double, finishing with 18 points and a career-high 20 rebounds.

Fall went 7-for-10 from the floor and 2-for-4 at the free-throw line in his 29 minutes of action. He also blocked five shots.

The big man was also handed a technical foul in the first quarter. He got upset with a referee, expressed his displeasure, then waved the ref off to receive the tech.

On Maine’s first offensive possession after Fall received his tech, he was called for a personal foul when he took some frustration out on Captial City’s Anzejs Pasecniks as the two battled for position in the paint.

But, according to Capital City’s broadcast, Fall apologized to the refs for his actions in between the first and second quarters.

Tremont Waters scored 16 points for Maine. He went 6-for-11 from the floor (2-for-5 from deep). Waters also had four rebounds and four assists.
