Redoing another dynasty in DDSCB2 (for some reason, accessing the Wolverine Forum site is intermittent from my location)

 

Background:

- simmed for 50+ years, in order to generate historical data

- allows conference movement

- allows undegrads to declare early

1st Half

 

UTST having trouble stopping our inside game, particularly C Brandon Braun, as we raced to an early 17-4 lead.  UTST stayed close by making their outside shots, but we pulled away when our 2nd unit was on the floor.  For the 2nd straight game, we scored 50+ pts in the 1st half

I momentarily took out C Brandon Braun because of 3 fouls, and UTST able to take advantage.  I had to call a timeout, and bring Braun back in.  We are in the penalty
7:03: Up 70-61
 

C Brandon Braun and SG Kevin Stokes scored 4 pts each to keep our scoreboard running.  We are leading by 13 with 2:31 left, and it was enough buffer for us to slow down the game and hold on for the win.

1st Half

 

It is our inside game vs UTSA's outside offense, and so far we're winning.  We should have been in a much better position had we done a better job in the FT line; 7 missed FTs already.  But I liked the way we were able to keep our turn overs in check

We increased our lead to 22.  UTSA able to reduced it to 13, but a well-rested PF Brandon Braun was consistent towards the end.  SG Ron Warley scored all of 11 pts in the 2nd half.  This has been our best defensive effort so far this season.
 
UTSA's SG Jermaine Frederick limited to just 5 pts in the 2nd half

Career Game #4

 

Nov 26, 2000: Delaware St (3-0) @ Northwestern St (0-3)

 

Scouting Report

  • Offense: slow pace, balanced, lots of freedom, triangle
  • Defense: m2m, some press
  • Key Players: Jr SF Eddy Flanigan 19.3 ppg, 5.7 rpg
  • Notes: NWST shooting just 38% FG

1st Half

 

As expected, this is turning out to be a grind-it-out type of game.  Lots of fouls on both sides, but we got the raw end of the deal, with both C Brandon Braun and PG Sidney Petteway having 3 each.  Outside of Braun, the rest of the team shot just 5-20 FG.

 

Halftime: Down 34-37

 

Key stat(s)

  • FG shooting: DELST 36%, NWST 41%

Key Players

  • DELST: C Brandon Braun 18 pts, 9 rebs
  • NWST: SF Eddy Flanigan 10 pts, 3 3s

 

2nd Half

 

C Brandon Braun dominant early in the 2nd half, but he eventually picked up his 4th foul.  Our other starting big man, C Jamal Swift, also with 4 fouls.  Our offense got stalled, while NWST caught fire from the outside

10:43: Down 46-56

 
We went down by 15.  Sensing that the game is slipping away, I had no choice but to bring back C Brandon Braun.  Braun tried his best to get us back into the game, but NWST's shooting continues to wax hot.  Still down by 14 with 3 mins left.  Not gonna do it; we didn't make enough stops in the 2nd half
 
NWST's SF Eddy Flanigan finished with 27 pts, 7-14 3PT

  • Defense: m2m, press at points
  • Key Players: C Owen Doss 7.2 ppg, 5.0 rpg
  • Notes: EKU committing 17.3 topg

1st Half

 

EKU really wanting this game to be a track fest.  At first we were able to keep up and took advantage of EKU's turn overs.  But our short rotation has taken a toll towards the end of the 1st half and EKU took the lead.  EKU had 7 players scoring at least 4 pts in the 1st half

2nd Half

 

C Brandon Braun has scored 12 of our 21 pts in the 2nd half.  But we can't make stops, and EKU still shooting an 63% FG at this stage of the game.  PLus we can't make our FTs; 9 misses already

10:42: Down 61-68

 
Both teams in the penalty, and we continue to miss from the charity stripe.  But we started to make some stops.

3:44: Down 72-77

 
Had a chance to cut the deficit down further, but C Brandon Braun missed down low.  On the return play, EKU hits a dagger 3.  Down 8.  SG Kevin Stokes hits a jumper.  Down 6.  EKU awarded a 1-and-1, but missed the front end.  Timeout

2:30: Down 74-80

 
We ran a play on C Brandon Braun, but he missed again.  Loose ball, last touched by EKU and we retain possession.  This time we go C Jamal Swift, but his kick out pass was stolen.  UKU called for a charge.  Still have a chance.  Timeout

1:44: Down 74-80

 
One more go with C Brandon Braun on the low post, but he missed for the 3rd straight time, perhaps fatigue setting in.  EKU missed; we get the rebound.  C Jamal Swift drives, had a good look, but the ball rimmed out.  UKU hits a shot, plus a foul.  They made the bonus FT.  Timeout

0:49: Down 74-83

  • Defense: m2m, press at points
  • Key Players: So SG Chris Cross 18.1 ppg, 44% 3PT
  • Notes: KC not a good rebounding team at 27.7 rpg

1st Half

 

Atrocious defense, and early turn overs, allowed KC to score 26 pts in the 1st 9 mins;we were down by 10 at that point.  We made some defensive adjustments to slice our deficit, but we definitely need more effort on the defensive end in the 2nd half.  C Brandon Braun just 4-13 FG

 

Halftime: Down 40-44

 

Key stat(s)

  • FG shooting: DELST 42%, KC 56%

Key Players

  • DELST: C Brandon Braun 12 pts, 7 rebs
  • KC: C Juan Felts 13 pts, 4 rebs

 

2nd Half

 

C Brandon Braun continues to have difficulty making shots on a consistent basis, just 7-18 FG so far.  SG Kevin Stokes is 1-7 FG.  But we're keeping ourselves close.  We're in the penalty already

11:17: Down 53-57

 
Refs are not stopping calling fouls on us here in the 2nd half. We turned to our bench, and they did a decent job of hanging on.  
6:46: Down 64-67
 
C Brandon Braun scored 6 pts in a small 8-1 run, enough for us to take the lead.  KC had to take a timeout
4:18: Up 72-68
 
KC scored their 1st FG in almost 3 mins.  Up 2.  We go back to C Brandon Braun, and he delivered down low.  Up 4.  KC gets a basket, and the 4th foul on Braun.  KC missed the bonus FT.  Up 2.  Over 3 mins left; I'll keep Braun on the floor.  We go to Braun again.  Braun shoots, miss, but he gets the offensive rebound.  2nd serving by Braun, and this time he makes the shot plus a foul!  Braun makes the FT.  Braun has scored 11 of our last 13 pts.
3:20: Up 77-72
 
KC puts up a 3. It's good!  Timeout
3:07: Up 77-75
 
KC denying C Brandon Braun to get the ball.  PG Sidney Petteway drives.  Miss, we get an offensive rebound, bt we turned the ball over.  KC can tie or take the lead.  They miss a 3; we get the rebound.  SG Ron Warley puts up a 3.  An ill-advised shot.  Miss.  KC with the possession.  KC misses a 3.  They get another chance with an offensive rebound.  KC missing a jumpshot.  But another rebound by KC.  3rd try.  Miss.  Another rebound.  4th.  Another miss, but another rebound.  They didn't waste their 5th opportunity and scores plus a foul.  They made the FT.  Timeout.  I was mad at the team for letting KC get those rebounds
1:35: Down 77-78
 
This time, we were able to bring the ball into the hands of C Brandon Braun, who bulldozes his way inside and scores.  Up 1.  KC turns the ball over, their 19th of the game.  Braun defended well, and can't get the ball.  PG Sidney Petteway puts up a 3.  Miss.  We wasted that possession.  Timeout KC
0:42: Up 79-78
 
We can't have any defensive lapses.  KC puts up a 3 against our double team.  They knock down a 3!  Timeout
0:42: Down 79-81
 
C Jamal Swift able to make a basket underneath to tie the game.  0:20 left, shot clock is off.  KC not calling a timeout.  Foul called.  I was complaining, but to no avail.  KC's C Juan Felts to take 2 FTs; he's 3-4 FT so far today.  Miss the 1st.  Makes the 2nd.  I call my last timeout
0:13: Down 81-82
 
KC able to knock the ball away.  Still our ball, but only 0:03 left.  Inbound.  PG Sidney Petteway gets the ball.  No time to set up a low post play, so Petteway puts up a 3 from top of the key.  BANG!  Time expired.  Players collapsed on Petteway at midcourt.  What an exciting escape win!

Post game observations

  • (+): We stuck with our game plan, and kept the score close even if we're not playing well
  • (-): So may reasons to lose this game; we lost the battle on the boards, outside shots not falling, missed 10 FTs, etc.  But we found a way to win in the end

Career Game #8

 

Dec 10, 2000: Niagara (2-5) @ Delaware St (5-2)

Perhaps due to the post game celebration in the last game, PG Sidney Petteway suffered a sore hand and will not be available today.  Bummer

 

Scouting Report

  • Offense: normal pace, balanced, lots of freedom, shuffle
  • Defense: 2-3, press at points
  • Key Players: Sr PG Shamel Huss 8.7 ppg, 3.9 apg
  • Notes: No NIAG player is averaging more than 8.7 ppg

1st Half

 

1st time to face a team that predominantly uses zone defense.  We shot the ball reasonably well to break their zone.  But the problem again is our defense, allowing NIAG to shoot 57% FG

 

 

Halftime: Down 37-44

 

Key stat(s)

  • FG shooting: DELST 44%, NIAG 57%

Key Players

  • DELST: C Brandon Braun 15 pts, 3 rebs

 

2nd Half

 

We can't afford to simply trade baskets with NIAG.  Our 2 PGs we have today have combined for 6 turn overs.  Worst of all, PF Brandon Braun picked up his 4th foul

11:54: Down 49-55

 
We managed to hit some 3s, and even tied the game at 57.  However, turn overs and our penalty situation has allowed NIAG to establish a lead once again.  I had to bring C Brandon Braun back in
7:57: Down 57-64
 
Finally, we get a string of stops.  C Brandon Braun scored 5 pts since he returned to the floor.  Both teams in the penalty
5:32: Tied at 64
 
We extended our current run to 11-0, and take a 4 pt lead.  NIAG broke their silence with a 3.  Up 1.  C Brandon Braun scores once again.  Up 3.  NIAG turns the ball over
3:47: Up 70-67
 
C Jamal Swift got fouled on the act shooting.  Swift missed both FTs.  But C Brandon Braun was there for the put back!  Up 5.  NIAG scores on a drive.  Up 3.  C Brandon Braun was isolated on the low post.  This should be easy for him, but he was called for steps.  Damn.  NIAG missed a jumper, but they get the off rebound.  Another miss by NIAG, but they get another offensive rebound.  NIAG takes their time.  We got called for a foul.  They hit both FTs.  Timeout.  I am not happy on that last sequence of play
2:23: Up 72-71
 
We couldn't get a good look.  SF Anthony Jefferson has to put up a hurried with shot clock about to expire.  Miss; rebound by NIAG.  They can take the lead here.  They miss a 3.  And we get the rebound.  TImeout
1:26: Up 72-71
 
SG Kevin Stokes drives.  He misses.  NIAG with the ball.  NIAG missed.  Another offensive rebound for NIAG.  2nd chance for NIAG.  And this time they score.  Timeout
0:48: Down 72-73
 
C Jamal Swift takes it strong to the hoop.  Miss, but he got fouled.  Missed the 1st.  Makes the 2nd, his 1st made FT in 4 attempts today.  Tied.  0:37 to go.  NIAG not calling a timeout.  NIAG buries a 3!  I called my last timeout
0:25: Down 73-76
 
We don't necessarily need a 3.  C Brandon Braun missed on his shot, but there was a foul.  Braun missed the 1st.  And he also missed the 2nd.  SF Anthony Jefferson was there to grab the offensive rebound.  0:10 left.  We have to take the 3 now.  SF Anthony Jefferson takes a 3.  Miss.  NIAG rebounds and was able to dribble the time away.  A sorry home loss

Post game observations

  • (+): Outside shooting was decent today, 7-18 3PT
  • (-): Our lack of depth at PG was exposed today with the absence of PG Sidney Petteway.  Also, C Brandon Braun has to avoid getting into foul trouble so he can stay longer on the floor

Career Game #9

 

Dec 14, 2000: Milwaukee (4-2) @ Delaware St (5-3)

 

Scouting Report

  • Offense: fast pace, balanced, some freedom, motion
  • Defense: m2m, press at points
  • Key Players: Fr C Tommy Lutz 11.7 ppg, 7.5 rpg
  • Notes: UWMIL on a 4-game win streak, averaging almost 80 ppg during that span

1st Half

 

C Brandon Braun scored 23 of our 1st 26 pts.  Our defense was holding its own during the 1st 12 mins of the game, and we're ahead by 12.  I took out Braun for a brief rest, and that's when things started to go downhill for us.  UWMIL went on a 17-0 run, before we slightly recovered towards the end of the 1st half

 

 

Halftime: Down 39-42

 

Key stat(s)

  • Turn overs: DELST 9, MIL 4

Key Players

  • DELST: C Brandon Braun 25 pts, 10 rebs

 

2nd Half

 

We're having difficulty making stops once again.  C Brandon Braun's monster game just enough to keep us close.  We finally regained on the latest play, a successful drive by SF Anthony Jefferson

13:33: Up 55-53

 
Game remained close the past 6 mins; we never led by more than 4
7:30: Up 63-61
 
SG Kevin Stokes, who has been scoreless so far up to this point, scored 6 straight pts (a 3pt play, and a 3pt shot), which started an 10-4 run, and extended our lead to 8.  UWMIL hit 2 FTs to cut it down to 6
3:39: Up 73-67
 
PG Sidney Petteway hits a big 3.  Up 9.  We forced UWMIL to a turn over.  However we missed on our next play.  UWMIL scores,  Timeout.  Far from over
2:29: Up 76-69
 
C Brandon Braun, who must be very tired now, had 3 shots and 2 offensive rebounds on our next play.  He got fouled on his 3rd attempt.  Braun missed both, but C Jamal Swift was there to grab the offensive rebound.  We give it back to Braun, and Braun missing again.  Tough break.  NIAG with possession.  Traveling.  Timeout
1:34: Up 76-69
 
SG Kevin Stokes puts up a 3, and its good! Up 10.  UWMIL missed a 3.  We slowed down.  UWMIL will have to give up fouls.  We made 3 more FTs to seal the game, which made the last 2 3s by UWMIL moot and academic.  We did a good job in taking care of the ball in the 2nd half with just 2 turn overs, after committing 9 during the 1st.
 
 

Final Score: Milwaukee - 75, Delaware St - 82

Post game observations

  • (+): In Braun we trust.  Also, SG Kevin Stokes found the right time to regain his shooting touch
  • (-): Seems like we can rely on just a 7 or 8-man rotation.  The return of SG Lewis Lepore in a few weeks time should help though

Career Game #11

 

Dec 21, 2000: George Mason (2-5) @ Delaware St (7-3)

 

Scouting Report

  • Offense: fast pace, balanced, some freedom, motion
  • Defense: m2m, rarely press
  • Key Players: Sr SF Terrance Rhodes 10.1 ppg, 4.3 rpg
  • Notes: GM shooting 41% 3PT; they had 12 3s in their last game

1st Half

 

Both teams like to put a lot of shots quickly.  The difference is we're shooting at a much higher percentage.  We have 4 players already in double figures

 

 

Halftime: Up 52-34

 

Key stat(s)

  • FG: DELST 54%, GM 38%
  • 3PT: DELST 7-10, GM 4-15

Key Players

  • DELST: C Brandon Braun 14 pts, 6 rebs; SF Anthony Jefferson 11 pts, 3 3s

 

2nd Half

 

GM offense improved early in the 2nd half, but they can't get any momentum going because of their poor defense.  SF Anthony Jefferson was on fire the whole game, making all of his 6 attempts from beyond the arc.  5 of our players scored in double figures

Career Game #12

Start of conference games

 

Dec 31, 2000: Delaware St (8-3, 0-0) @ Coppin St (5-6, 0-0)

 

Scouting Report

  • Offense: fast pace, balanced, some freedom, traingle
  • Defense: m2m, rarely press
  • Key Players: Jr PG Anthony Drayton 16.2 ppg (3rd in MEAC), 4.1 rpg
  • Notes: CSC giving up almost 73 opp ppg

1st Half

 

Poor shooting; even C Brandon Braun shot just 4-11 FG.  CSC was just making shots everywhere

 

 

Halftime: Down 31-42

 

Key stat(s)

  • FG: DELST 34%, CSC 50%
  • 3PT: DELST 4-10, CSC 7-12

Key Players

  • DELST: C Brandon Braun 13 pts, 7 rebs
  • CSC: PG Tony Willias 14 pts, 4 3s

 

2nd Half

 

Nothing going right.  We even got into the penalty less than 4 mins into the 2nd half.  C Brandon Braun has 4 fouls, but he remains on the floor; PG Sidney Petteway also with 4.  Braun is the only one keeping us in this game, scoring 14 of our 16 pts in the 2nd half

14:13: Down 47-52

 
We cut down our deficit to 3.  We just want to keep close, and hope C Brandon Braun does not pick up his 5th.  On our last play, C Brandon converted a 3pt play opportunity, and we finally get a taste of the lead.
9:41: Up 59-58
 
It has been a see-saw game since.  PG Sidney Petteway just fouled out.  Both teams in the penalty
5:50: Tied at 67
 
We scored 3 inside baskets and added 2 FTs, while CSC able to score just 3 FTs.
3:57: Up 75-70
 
Teams traded turn overs.  On our next possession, C Brandon Braun missed on his shot, but he got the offensive rebound and the put back is good,  Braun makes the bonus FT.  Braun's current endurance is less than 50; he just needs to hang in there.
3:16: Up 78-70
 
CSC missing a 3.  C Jamal Taylor scores inside.  Up 10.  We get a steal, and Taylor was ahead on the break for the slam!  Up 12.  CSC makes 2 FTs the next play.  Timeout.  Everyone is exhausted
2:16: Up 82-72
 
C Brandon Braun scores again inside.  That should probably do it.  Up 12.  CSC hits a 2.  Up 10.  1:43 left.  We slowed down to waste some time.  CSC made 2 late 3s, but didn't affect the outcome.  A great come from behind road win, after being down by 16.  We played better perimeter defense in the 2nd half.
