"I'm pleased with the first three quarters -- the ones that mattered -- because it was over after that," Charleston head coach Danny Farmer said about their first two games. "I was concerned about Chaffee, because they're not a bad team. I was a little bit concerned that we would come out and not take it serious.

"We do think this is a winnable tournament for us."

Bogan scored 16 points in the first quarter against seventh-seeded Chaffee and finished with 24 and 10 rebounds. Shandor Webster, a senior, tallied 16 points.

"He shot it well, Shandor shot it well and we played good defense," Farmer said. "I was pleased with the effort."

Charleston's furious start led to a 28-11 lead after the first quarter. Bogan finished with 20 points in the first half to help the Bluejays, who hit eight three pointers in the first half, to a 48-25 halftime lead.

They held Chaffee to 10 points in the third quarter to go ahead 67-35.

"We came out and played," Farmer said. "We looked pretty good."

Charleston (6-3) will take on the Cape Central Tigers during the championship semifinals Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
