WHAAAAAT? That was an exciting day and night of basketball. Our conference is the best!
SPU 92 @ WWU 88
Honestly this is a pretty typical game between these two teams. It was back and forth the whole time and a fun game to watch and you truly didn’t know who was going to win until the final buzzer sounded. Congrats to both teams on a hard fought game.
Falcon highlights:Coleman Wooten had 12 points and seven boards; Harry Cavell started and had 10 points and five boards; Gabe Colosimo had 21 points; Nathan Streufert had 15 points and six boards; and Gavin Long had 12 points. Off the bench Braden Olsen had 14 points while going 5-5 from the line; and Nikhil Lizotte had five points.
Viking highlights: Trey Drecshel did bounce back with a 15 point and seven rebound performance; Deandre Dickson had a fantastic 25 points on great shooting from the field and the line, along with nine boards; Trevor Jasinsky had 14 points, five fouls, and a full house; Daulton had 14 points, five boards, and a full house as well; and off the bench Siaan Rojas was seriously impressive with 16 points and four boards.
Really fun game. Proud of all of the guys for fighting ridiculously hard.
WOU 72 @ UAA 62
That score doesn’t quite tell the whole picture. WOU was dominating, Anchorage worked their way back and things got a little dicey, but then as good teams do: WOU found a way to put the game away. Nicely done to the Wolves on what felt like a come-from-behind experience.
Wolf highlights: Tanner Omlid had 22 points, seven boards, and a full house; Ali had 12 points; Riley Hawken had nine points and seven boards; JJ Chirnside made his debut in the starting line up; and off the bench Vince Boumann had nine points, eight boards, and six assists.
Seawolf highlights: Malik Clements had 14 points; DJ Ursery had a “quiet” game with 10 points, five boards, and a full house; Drew Peterson had 15 points; Brian Pearson had 10 points; and off the bench Brennan Rymer had five assists.
Really proud of the Seawolves -we see you guys making progress!! Congrats to the Wolves on their victory.
SMU 85 @ SFU 63
We’re tempted to just say it was a blow-out the whole time because SFU stopped updating their stats mid-game and so we have no idea what went on, but… Reality: SMU was up by a lot, allowed the Clan to come back in it and tie it up at the half, and then Alex Pribble clearly said some magic words at halftime and the Saints blew the Clan out right properly.
Saint highlights: Luke Chavez had 20 points; Matt Dahlen had nine points; Jordan Kitchen had 10 points and eight boards; Rhett Baerlocher had 11 points and seven boards; and EJ Boyce finished with 18 points. Off the bench Jared Matthews had 10 points; and BJ Standley had seven boards.
Clan highlights: Kedar Salam had 12 points and six boards; Michael Provenzano had 11 points; Tyrell Lewin had 13 points and seven boards; and off the bench Othniel Spence had 12 points; while Jordan Muir-Keung had nine points and six boards among a flawless full house.
Nicely done to the Clan for walking it back up and good job to SMU for finding the motivation and putting it away once again.
MSUB 73 @ CWU 77
THIS WAS SUCH A FUN GAME. CWU looked like they were going to blow out the Jackets early and then the Jackets were like ‘Heck no,” and got back in it, and then CWU was like “Um yeah, we are,” but MSUB was like “NO YOU’RE NOT,” and then the final score happened.
Yellowjacket highlights: Kobe Tereshim had 24 points; Zharon Richmond had 11 points and five boards among a full house of stats; and Zack Rollins had eight boards. Off the bench Hafeez Abdul had six points and four boards; Tyler Green had seven points; and Jordan Perry had nine points and five boards.
Wildcat highlights: Khalil Shabazz had 20 points, five boards, and six assists; Malik Montoya had five boards; Jawan Stepney had 15 points and five boards; and Fuquan Niles had 11 points and nine boards. Off the bench Sage Woodruff continues to impress with 13 points and five fouls; and Coleman Sparling had nine points.
Congrats to both teams a hard fought battle.
CUPDX 62 @ UAF 63
This game was insane but ugly. It was back and forth and then it looked like UAF was going to finally get settled in, but they couldn’t; Concordia was on them the whole time. We should have made it a ‘pick ’em’ but oh well; we maintain the right team won, and CU-PDX will have another chance to break their losing streak against MSUB this week.
Cav highlights: Jarrett Gray had 19 points and six boards; Chris Edward had a good game with 11 points and 11 boards; Taylor Harris had six boards; and off the bench Cody Starr had nine points and four assists.
Nook highlights: Donny Wilder was back in the starting line-up had had 13 points and 11 boards for the double-double; Tre Eisenhut had eight points; and Michael Kluting had 13 boards. Off the bench Amenofis had five points; Davis Kimble had four boards; and Joe Lendway had 11 points.
Congrats to UAF on continuing the push to make the conference tournament and good luck to the Cavs against both WOU and more importantly MSUB.
Fun night of basketball.
UAF and SFU keep falling down on the job in regard to live stats and it’s really bugging us because we follow those stats religiously. YOUR SCHOOL’S LIVE STATS MATTER. It doesn’t matter if you don’t think anyone is following along, we always are, and we’re rather dedicated, so please: Update the darn stats promptly and consistently.
Good luck to all in the coming week.
