The DC boys basketball team lost two games in recent action, falling at home to Glencoe-Silver Lake 61-46 Monday, and losing on the road to Annandale 72-40 Tuesday.
Against the Panthers, there were two glaring discrepancies in the box score for the GSL-DC game Monday: fouls and free throws.
The Chargers were whistled for twice as many fouls as the visiting Panthers, 22-11.
As a result, GSL shot 22 free throws (hitting 16), while DC had just five (hitting two).

GSL (11-12, 4-7) had three players in double figures: Mitchel Jaskowiak (13), Dane Schirtz (12), and Gage Alseleben (11).
