Postby PointGuard » Tue Mar 28, 2017 1:30 am

Jacksonville @ Illinois—Playing on the road against a much stronger team, Jacksonville came back from a 20 point deficit to nearly overtake the Fighting Illini before losing 71-66 in a game that proved their tenacity and ability to compete with strong teams. C Fred Smith came back from an injury in their previous game to score 20 points while SF Michael Frederick pulled down 14 rebounds. The Dolphins were sent to the foul line only 2 times. Illinois’ 8 more points at the line were the difference in this game. Jacksonville was a +17 in rebounds but a -13 in turnovers. (1-4)

Cal-Davis @ Weber St.—The Aggies never led in game and trailed by 18 at the half. They allowed Weber State to hit 50% of their shots while only converting 30% of their own FG attempts, thus leading to their 74-54 loss. SF Adrian Ballard led their scoring with 11 points. (2-3

Wofford @ Providence—Providence ran away with this game to the tune of 83-50, but the Terriers embarrassing loss was made worse by injuries to 3 of their players. Two suffered hamstring strains. Coach Kyle Anders reported after the game that while SG Victor Griffin is expected to just be shut down for a couple days of practice, SF Brandon Linton is likely to miss 2-3 games. SF Brandon Detmer sustained strained abdominal muscles and also is expected to be out for 2-3 games. PG Alton Johnson led the Terriers in scoring with 16 points. (2-3)

Akron @ Texas St.—Texas State came out on top in the first half 39-35. But Akron came from behind at the end of the game. With the game tied, Akron pulled off a perfect pick and roll freeing them for a jumper with 2 seconds on the clock that resulted in a 76-64 loss for Texas State. Reserve C Matt Wright came off the bench to lead the Bobcats in scoring with 24 points. SF Russell Brown scored 10 and hauled in 10 boards. High-scoring SG Andre Sales popped in 31 poisteadints for Akron. (3-2)

Chicago St. @ Mississippi St.—Chicago State came out on a mission and slowly pulled away from Mississippi State. By the half, the Cougars were in charge 43-32. They kept Mississippi State at arms’ length in the second half to win 69-58 and give Coach DJ Brower his first victory as a head coach. PF Robert Allocco’s 19 points led Chicago State. (1-4)

Akron @ Jacksonville—Akron won their 3rd game against teams coached by one of the friends. In a hard-fought battle, the Zips conquered Jacksonville 75-69. SG Andre Sales scored 26 for Akron (giving him 87 points in the 3 games against friends’ teams). PF Maurice Braun topped Jacksonville’s scoring with 15 points. PG Rowland Bolton sustained a concussion when he was knocked to the floor contesting a rebound. He will miss the Dolphins next game. (1-5)

Cal-Davis @ TX Rio Grande Valley—Cal-Davis stayed close in the first half and trailed by a mere 4 points at the break. But they lost contact in the 2nd half, falling behind by 20 points before being saddled with a 74-63 loss. PF Jeremy Wolthers scored 16 to lead Cal-Davis. (2-4)

Northeastern @ Wofford—The two teams slugged it out in the first half with Wofford coming away with a 40-36 halftime lead. In the 2nd half, Wofford kept up their attack but coupled it with a crippling defense that resulted in an 82-63 stomping of Northeastern. None of Wofford’s three injured players played, but Wofford overcame that disadvantage. Antuan Lackey came in off the bench to pour in 19 points in 15 minutes of floor time. SF Chris Wilder made the most of the chance to start by scoring 18 points and grabbing 5 rebounds plus getting 2 steals and a block. Wofford’s 3 losses are to teams (Utah, Boston College, and Providence) with a combined record of 19-2 with one presently ranked #2 and another #25 in the polls. The Terriers thus have earned their RPI ranking them as the 55th best team in the country. (3-3)

Texas St. @ Miami (OH)—Miami smothered Texas State in the first half to take a 38-24 lead at the break. Texas State continued to be outclassed in the 2nd half, falling behind by as much as 27 points. The final score was 78-55 in favor of Miami (OH). With this e Bobcats’ offense stymied, their leading scorer, PG Gilbert Lemeke, scored just 9 points. (3-3)

Chicago St. @ Mississippi—The second part of Chicago State’s trip to the state of Mississippi wasn’t as successful as the first. After taking an early 7 point lead, Chicago State was overwhelmed by Mississippi’s defense. Trailing 39-32 at the half, they steadily fell further and further behind in the 2nd half. The Cougars fell and fell hard, 79-57. PG Steve Greer scored 15 for Chicago State, while SG Lionel Ball topped all scorers with 21 for Mississippi. (1-5)

Wofford’s C Jamaal Hobbs was selected as the Conference U Freshman Player of the Week. Hobbs is averaging 10.2 ppg and 4.2 rpg thus far this season.

Week 4 (ending 12/10/16) Results:

Postby PointGuard » Tue Mar 28, 2017 7:25 pm

Jacksonville @ Northern Arizona—The Dophins took no prisoners in this game. After gaining a quick advantage, they controlled the boards (39-28) and scored 40 points in the paint compared to 10 by Northern Arizona. Jacksonville expanded its 12 point halftime advantage to 25 points in the 2nd half and bludgeoned Northern Arizona by a final score of 74-55. PG Reggie Scholls scored 15 points while hauling in 8 rebounds. (2-5)

Cal-Davis @ Toledo—When you hold your opponent’s shooting to 40%, you normally have a good chance of winning. But not if, like Cal-Davis in this game, you can only drop in 32% of your FG attempts. The Aggies could never put together a sustained offensive effort and dropped this game to the tune of 72-54. C Casey Givens scored 16 for Cal-Davis, but Toledo’s SF Keith Lightfoot topped all scorers with 22 and his teammate PF Anthony Welch scored 10 points while pulling down 12 boards. (2-5)

Air Force @ Wofford—The two teams exchanged the lead 8 times in the first half and were separated by just a point at the halftime break. But Air Force took flight in the 2nd half and soared to a 76-60 win. PF Kenny Taylor scored 18 for Wofford. For Air Force, SG Ray Marek scored 23 and SF Marque Lloyed had 21. The two combined to hit 10 of 14 three-point attempts. (3-4)

Texas St. @ High Point—Those attending this game got their money’s worth. 23 lead changes, 13 times tied, and neither team having greater than a 5 point lead. Texas State shot a little better and worked the boards better allowing them to come away with a 72-68 road victory. The Bobcats’ guard duo scored a combined 31 points (16 for PG Gilbery Lemeke and 15 for SG Terry Deng). C John DePina barely missed recording a double-double finishing with 9 points and 9 rebounds. (4-3)

Chicago St. @ Seton Hall—It’s likely the AD for Chicago State won’t schedule a game against Seton Hall for next season. Although the Cougars were able to hang with the Hall for the early going, they trailed by 19 at the half and suffered an ignominious defeat 91-59. PF Robert Allocco score 20 and had 7 rebounds for Chicago State. PG Levall Howard chipped in 25 for Seton Hall. (1-6)

Jacksonville @ George Mason—Jacksonville played a strong 1st half, opening an 11 point lead and gaining a 32-26 halftime advantage. But George Mason wrestled control in the 2nd half and gradually caught up and then overtook the Dolphins, winning 65-60. SF Michael Frederick topped Jacksonville’s scoring with 17 points. C Roderick Allen scored 15 and pulled down 13 rebounds for George Mason. (2-6)

Wofford @ Mississippi St.—Wofford was unable to emulate Chicago State’s earlier victory over Mississippi State. Mississippi State’s defense completely dominated Wofford. The Terriers his just 25% of their FG attempts and they were forced into making 19 turnovers. Wofford fell and fell hard 71-40. PF Kenny Taylor scored 14 for the Terriers. C Mike Shine dropped in 22 points and SG Jason Cameron had 17 point and 11 boards for Mississippi State. (3-5)

Texas St. @ East Tennessee St.—A second straight tight game for Texas State. 24 lead changes, 15 ties, a one point variance at the half. But again Texas State came out on top, scoring a 78-71 victory. C John DePino scored 21, but the player of the game for Texas State was SG Terry Deng who poured in 19 points and came away with 12 rebounds. (5-3)

Sacramento St. @ Chicago St.—A rare home game for the Cougars and they took advantage of home-cooking to storm to an 83-63 triumph. Chicago State completely dominated the boards (46-22), but getting to the line 24 more times where they scored 20 more points than Sacramento State didn’t hurt their cause at all. SF Bernard Merton had a surprising big game, scoring 19 points. (2-6)

Postby PointGuard » Thu Mar 30, 2017 12:25 am

Vanderbilt @ Jacksonville—Jacksonville annihilated Vanderbilt in the first half, taking a 34-16 lead to the locker room. Their defense dissolved in the 2nd half and Vanderbilt poured in 47 points in the final 20 minutes of play. But the Dolphins were able to hold off the onslaught to come away with a 70-63 win. Jacksonville was +16 in rebounds but scored 12 more points on free throws than Vanderbilt. PG Ryan McDonald scored 16 points. (3-6)

William & Mary @ Cal-Davis—Cal-Davis got out in front early and never looked back winning easily 76-55. The Aggies hit 51% of their shots, were +16 in rebounding, and scored 18 more points at the line than the Tribe. SG Steffon Forman topped the scoring for Cal-Davis with 19 points. (3-5)

UNC-Greensboro @ Wofford—UNC-Greensboro outscored Wofford 36-30 in the first half. In the 2nd half, Wofford applied a tenacious defense and steadily pulled away to post a 70-59 victory. C Jamaal Hobbs led their scoring with 11 points. The Terriers bench contributed 30 points. (4-5)

Texas St. @ Valparaiso—This was Texas State’s 3rd straight close game. The Bobcats held a 40-37 halftime advantage. Most of the 2nd half was close, but then Texas State faded at the end and dropped the game 70-61. Poor shooting contributed to the Bobcats loss as they hit just 31% of their FG attempts. PG Gilbert Lemeke scored 15 for Texas State. (5-4)

Chicago St. @ Canisius—Chicago State opened an 11 point lead at the half and then held on throughout the 2nd half to win their 2nd straight game by the final score of 80-71. The Cougars dropped in 52% of their shots. SG Ryan Roberts was high point man with 21 points, but PF Robert Allocco scored 18 and grabbed 8 boards. (3-6)

Akron @ Cal-Davis—Akron continued its dominance with their 4th victory over a 5-friends’ team. Cal-Davis went to the break with a slim 29-27 edge. But the Aggies were sloppy in the 2nd half, finishing with 22 turnovers and a 68-61 loss. C Casey Givens scored 14 for the Aggies. SG Andre Sales wasn’t as dominant for Akron as in previous games against teams coached by one of the friends, but still had high-point honors with 16 points. (3-6)

Even though DJ Brower’s Chicago State Cougars have an unimpressive 3-6 record, their wins in their last 2 games plus their strength of schedule which includes a loss to 11th ranked Arkansas, gives them the 72nd best RPI in the nation at this point. They travel to take on #7 ranked Villanova for their next game. Reserve PF David Johnson is nursing a bad bruise to his thigh, but isn’t expected to miss a game.

Weber State stomped the Dolphins 82-65. C Fred Smith had 11 points and 9 rebounds for Jacksonville and SF Michael Frederick scored 12. (3-7)

Drexel @ Cal-Davis—Cal-Davis fell behind by 11 points at the end of the 1st half. They struggled to get back into the game and made a game of it towards the end, before falling 79-75. The Aggies were a -12 in rebounding, but the main difference in this game was that the refs put Drexel on the line 19 more times where they scored 13 more points than Cal-Davis. Coach Monroe Thurlow rode the refs hard and had to be restrained by one of his assistants at one point. PF Jeremy Wolthers scored 13 points but was limited to just 14 minutes on the floor due to foul trouble. (3-7)

Wofford @ Central Florida—After falling behind by 7 points in the first half, Wofford came back to take a 37-30 lead to the locker room.

Postby PointGuard » Sun Apr 02, 2017 2:52 am

Jacksonville @ Southern—The only thing Jacksonville did well in this game was to control the boards (34-20). But their defense was porous allowing Southern to drop in 52% of their shots. Southern also only had 9 turnovers compared to 25 by Jacksonville. Southern overwhelmed the Dolphins by a score of 80-59. SG Justin Hartield was the top scorer for Jacksonville with 11 points. (3-8)

Cal-Davis @ Stanford—The Aggies jumped out on top and opened an 11 point lead in the first half. Stanford closed to within 3 points at the break. The score remained close throughout the 2nd half but Stanford was able to come back late in the half and take the game by the score of 60-55. A great effort by the Aggies on the road against a talented team. Four fouls were called against Stanford during the entire game (yes, just 4), and the Aggies never got to the foul line the entire night. Meanwhile Stanford made 15 of 19 free throws. PG Jason Everett carried the Aggies offense with 20 points. During the post-game interview, Coach Monroe Thurlow was asked about the officiating, to which he replied, "It's often said that if you don't have something good to day, don't say anything at all. So with respect to your question about officiating, I have nothing to say." (3-8)

Wofford @ Portland—This was a close game the entire way. Portland led 37-35 at the half. The game was tied 73-73 at the end of regulation. But the Pilots came on strong in OT and won 90-81. Wofford hit 59% of their shots, but made 25 turnovers. PG Alton Johnson popped in 21 points for Wofford. For Portland C Tezale Walcott scored 19 and had 10 boards. (5-6)

Texas St. @ Texas Tech—Playing on the road, Texas State hung with the higher-rated Texas Tech team the entire game. The Bobcats simply ran out of time at the end of the game and lost a squeaker, 65-63. SF Russell Brown scored 13 for Texas State. SF DeShawn Thompson was high-point man for Texas Tech with 21 points. (6-5)

Morgan St. @ Chicago St.—Morgan State controlled the game in the first half but only led by a score of 37-34 at the half.

PF Robert Allocco poured in 28 points plus had 9 rebounds. PG Steve Greer had 8 points and 8 assists. (4-7)

Chicago State’s Robert Allocco was named the Conference U Player of the Week based on his 28 point, 9 rebound performance. For the season he’s tied for 2nd in scoring in Conference U with 16.3 ppg, is 4th in rebounds with 6.9 rpg, and is 5th in blocks with 1.5 bpg.

In non-Conference U news, Virginia Tech was put on probation due when 2 players were found to have accepted bribes. Virginia Tech will be prohibited from offering scholarships for 2 years and will be banned from post-season play for a year. It’s suspected that Coach Hollis Gunder may likely be fired.

Coach Feedback going into Conference Play:

Postby PointGuard » Sun Apr 02, 2017 7:14 pm

DJ Brower (Chicago State Cougars, 4-7, RPI 102)—We had a tough start, losing 4 straight to open the season, but we bounced back to win 5 of 9 and 3 of our last 4 games. And this call came about even though we only played 3 of our 11 pre-conference games at home. So I’m optimistic and look forward to taking on the rest of Conference U. I’m pleased with how the team has done on the boards but we need to tighten up our defense. Our perimeter players needs to improve their shot selection so their shooting percentage improves, but overall Steve Greer (9.2 ppg, 3.5 apg) at PG, Ryan Roberts (9.5 ppg) at SG, and Gavin Johnson (6.8 ppg, 7.4 rpg) have playes well. C David Bracey (4.9 ppg, 3.7 rpg) has had a couple good games, but needs to improve his consistency and attack the boards harder. PF Robert Allocco (16.3 ppg, 6.9 rpg) is our anchor and has played exceptionally well.

Kyle Anders (Wofford Terriers, 5-6, RPI 117)—It was disappointing to lose in overtime to Portland in our last game, otherwise we’d be playing above .500, but I’m really enjoying my time here in Spartanburg. My guys are excited about starting play in Conference U. But we’ve got a ways to go. Too many turnovers (16.5 per game) and we need to get stronger both on offense (64.8 ppg) and defense (71.3 ppg). I like my guys to be tough on the boards and thus far, they’ve done pretty well. PG Alton Johnson (11.8 ppg) has been our workhorse and our leader offensively. Freshman C Jamaal Hobbs (9.1 ppg, 3.8 rpg) is still acclimating to Division I college ball and has done well on offense but we’re going to need more rebounding from him. PF Kenny Taylor (8.1 ppg, 5.8 rpg) has been steady for us. SF Brandon Detmer (6.0 ppg, 4.9 rpg) missed 3 games due to an injury, but will be a key player for us, I believe. We’re still solidifying who will be starting at SG. Freshman Antuan Lackey (6.6 ppg) has been on the floor the most time, but Jimmy Griffith (4.0 ppg) and Victor Griffin (3.2 ppg) are challenging him. We really need one of the 3 to step up and put consistently put some points on the board for us. PF Rod Leonard, who we signed for our lone scholarship this year, should be a big addition next year both offensively and on the boards.

Monroe Thurlow (Cal-Davis Aggies, 3-8, RPI 303)—We’ve played well in 2 or 3 games. But I’m not happy with our record thus far. We’ve lost too many close games. The guys need to nail down those games that we have a good chance to win, and we just haven’t done that so far. We’re going to be working harder on getting our guys familiar with our offensive sets so we can put some more points on the board. Our interior guys have done pretty well but both PF Jeremy Wolthers (10.2 ppg, 5.4 rpg) and C Casey Givens (9.9 ppg, 6.4 rpg) need to hit a higher percentage of their shots. Our perimeter players, PG Jason Everett (8.0 ppg, 3.9 apg), SG Steffon Forman (7.4 ppg, 4.6 rpg), and SF Adrian Ballard (7.7 ppg, 4.5 rpg) are shooting well, but need to put more shots up when they get good looks at the basket. We didn’t win as many pre-conference games as I would have liked, but only 6 of the conference teams has 6-5 records and all others were below .500 so I think we have a good chance to do well in conference play. Our goal now though is to beat the Conference U teams one by one starting with Parson Nyland’s Jacksonville Dolphins this coming week.

Parsons Nyland (Jacksonville Dolphins, 3-8, RPI 196)—This head coaching gig isn’t as easy as I expected. Pretty rough start. We had a couple good wins against some good competition (Baylor and Vanderbilt), but haven’t played well otherwise. But his is a young team with 5 freshmen and 4 sophomores and just 2 seniors. Thus far PF Maurice Braun is leading us offensively with 10.5 ppg, plus he’s come up big on the boards (7.0 rpg). C Fred Smith isn’t far behind with 9.5 ppg and Ross Walker has been None of our perimeter players has yet stood out, but we have 4 of them (Reggie Scholl, Michael Frederick, Justin Hartfield, and Rowland Bolton) scoring between 7 and 8.5 ppg. Recruiting wise, I’m happy with the point guard (Josh Jones) who has signed an LOI to play for us next year…even though he’s not ranked that highly, our assessment is that his passing, ball handling and defensive skills will make him a key player for us, if not as a freshman, at least for the 3 remaining years. We’ve got one more scholarship to fill and are looking closely at a couple strong centers.

Vernell Strom (Texas State Bobcats, 6-5, RPI 176)—Overall I think we’ve played pretty well so far. And we played a heckuva game against a very talented Texas Tech team in our last game and even though we lost by 2 points, our guys now realize they can compete with anyone. Defensively we’ve played particularly well. And offensively we’ve got 3 players averaging in double figures (C John DePina, 11.7 ppg; PG Gilbert Lemeke, 11.0 ppg; and SG Terry Deng, 10.4 ppg) so that keeps the opposition from focusing on any one guy. SF Russell Brown is averaging 7.9 ppg, but if he can start hitting his 3’s, he could be in double figures also. PF Kebu Dupay (5.5 ppg) has had a slow start and is being challenged as a starter by Brian Robertson (3.6 ppg in 7.6 mpg). We have landed one recruit but still need 3 more so have some major work to Thdo on the recruiting front.
