Rolling In The Deep Hoyas!
It was great to see the Hoyas come out roaring early in the first half. The defense later on in the first half slacked some and a lull set it in. It seemed the Hoyas were stuck at 26 forever, but managed to hold the Panthers down by 12 at the half 28-16.
The Hoyas hadn't score in about five minutes. I'm pretty sure at halftime Coach Thompson told his squad to step up their defense, and play more team basketball. I could see this to start the second half the defensive intensity was major.
The Hoyas came out strong with senior Markel Starks (18 pts., 5 asst., 1 reb.) leading the way. He knew when to step his game up! Sophomore D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera (17 pts.) in 27 minutes (6-12 fg's, 3-7 3's, 5 rebs., 4 assts., 1 stl.) showed his talents last night knocking the three ball and getting to the cup. I did like the "Earl The Pearl" into the gut of the High Point Panters defense for the and one. AHHHHHH, Smith-Rivera yelled.
Again, I thought the bench (26 pts.) played magnificient tonight. The reserves have been playing well for most of the season. It's amazing to see the development of the team.
Senior Moses Ayegba in 18 minutes had eight rebounds and one steal. This young man is a true warrior with great strength I can honesty say I think he's the strongest player in college hoops.
If he's not, someone please prove me wrong ha. Junior forward Mikael Hopkins (9 pts.) in 17 minutes (4-5 fg's, 6 rebs., 2 assts., 1 stl.) continues his solid play for the Hoyas. Junior guard Jabril Trawick (6 pts. 4 ast played 24 minutes) lead the charge on defense for the might Hoyas. It's always great to see the Hoyas press, I love this.
Freshman Reggie "Sniper" Cameron (9 pts.) in 16 minutesa fearless competitor in sixteen minutes went (3-7 fg's, 3-6 3's, 1 reb., 1 ast.). Good job Reggie!
Overall the Hoya shot 52% from the field, 41.7% in 3's, 54.5% from the free throw line. 23 assists for Gtown, and outrebounded the Panthers 40-34.
