The Wisconsin Herd were unable to finish out their inaugural G League campaign on a high note as they lost to the Canton Charge in their regular season finale on Friday night.
In front of a sold out crowd in Menominee Nation Arena, the Wisconsin Herd couldn’t cap off their expansion season on a high note as they were defeated wire-to-wire by the Canton Charge on Friday night, losing 139-117.
Both the Charge and the Herd got off to solid starts in the opening few minutes of the night. But the Charge gradually separated themselves from the Herd, eventually leading way for them to hold a 39-28 lead after one.
Despite the Herd’s efforts to keep pace with the Charge going into the second quarter, their deficit steadily grew throughout the period, especially as the Charge’s hot shooting from three-point range showed no signs of slowing down.

As a result, the Herd headed into halftime trailing the Charge 76-59.
That pattern carried over into the second half as the Charge looked at their most dominant during the third quarter, considering they led by as many as 28 in the final few moments of the frame.
However, the Herd were determined to not go down without a fight, which they attempted to cobble together in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter.
Unfortunately, their effort to whittle the gap down to something more respectable as the period wore on was eventually squashed by the Charge as they secured the night’s result well in advance of the final buzzer sounding.
With the loss to the Charge on Friday night, the Herd finish out their first season with a 21-29 record, good for ninth place in the Eastern Conference.
