    Welsh was exceptionally efficient, scoring nearly a point per minute and generating his fifth double-double of the campaign.

    Welsh provided another strong performance for the Swarm, though he continues to struggle on the defensive end of the floor. The 24-year-old's inability to improve upon his averages of 0.4 blocks and 0.2 steals per game has been integral in the Swarms' league-worst 113.7 defensive rating.
