Career Game #493

 

Nov 29, 2014: #10 North Carolina (3-2) @ #4 UCLA (3-0)

 

Scouting Report

  • Offense: slow pace, heavy outside, 5 out
  • Defense: m2m, presses on occasion
  • Key Players: Fr C Clarence Simmons 16.2 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 2.0 bpg, #9 recruit
  • Notes: UNC shoots 45.6% 3PT

 

1st Half

 

Very good interior defense by UNC anchored by C Clarence Simmons.  We need to get more fast break pts in the 2nd half (only 4 in the 1st)
 
 

Halftime: Up 28-24

 

Key stat(s)

  • FG: UCLA 33%, UNC 28%
  • 3PT: UCLA 2-5, UNC 4-9

Key Players

  • UCLA: C Bruce McCutcheon 7 pts, 3 rebs
  • UNC: C Clarence Simmons, 2 pts, 10 rebs, 6 blks

 

2nd Half

 

I was called for a technical partly because of the fouls being called on us, but more out of frustration with the way we are playing.  Our offensive execution started to improve after that technical, but UNC still keeping themselves close

11:47, Up 42-37

 

SG Mark Pettway and SG TJ Jones have come alive here in the 2nd half, combining for 21 pts.  We are also getting more offense in transition

6:16, Up 60-43

 

UNC cut down our lead to 10 with 2 mins left.  But we managed the clock well, forcing UNC to give up fouls in the end, and out FT shooting enabled us to hold on for the win

 

 

Final Score: North Carolina - 60, UCLA - 72

  • Notes: WIS scoring almost 72 ppg

 

1st Half

 

Our pressure defense producing 4 steals during the 1st 4 mins, and that has set the tone for the rest of the half.  WIS had to force a lot of contested outside shots, as our defense not allowing them to take easy shots

  • Key Players: Jr PF Lars Granger 10.4 ppg, 7.2 rpg
  • Notes: PROV averaging almost 38 rpg in the tournament

Career Game #499

 

 

Dec 13, 2014: #1 Syracuse (9-1)  vs #3 UCLA (9-0)

 

Scouting Report

  • Offense: slow pace, balanced, high post
  • Defense: 1-3-1, presses on occasion
  • Key Players: Fr Kevin Henderson 25.7 ppg, 8.9 rpg, rank #1 recruit
  • Notes: High powered match up between the 2 of the best scorers in the country, SG Mark Pettway and SYR's SG Kevin Henderson.  Henderson has played 40 mins in 9 of their 10 games

 

1st Half

 

SG Mark Pettway struggled early, and missed his 1st 7 shots.  Fortunately, our efforts in the offensive glass kept us in the lead.  We also limited the shooting opportunities of SYR's SG Kevin Henderson, but their big men showed good range from outside and kept them in the game
 
 

Halftime: Up 42-34

 

Key stat(s)

  • 2nd chance: UCLA 9, SYR 2
  • TOs: UCLA 3, SYR 12

Key Players

  • UCLA: PG Clint Wright 11 pts, 4 asts
  • SYR: SG Kevin Henderson 6 pts, 4 rebs

 

2nd Half

 

C Brian Jones has been our most consistent offensive performer so far, who leads all scorers with 17 pts.  We continue to do a good job on SYR's SG Kevin Henderson, and SYR has scored only 7 pts so far midway in the 2nd half

10:17, Up 60-41

 

SYR's offensive struggles continued the rest of the 2nd half.  And how quickly SG Mark Pettway can turn things around.  After missing his 1st 7 shots of the game, Pettway made 12 of his next 13, and came with his 2nd triple double in the last 3 games

 

 

Final Score: Syracuse - 51, UCLA - 80

Career Game #500

 

 

Dec 20, 2014: #11 Kansas (7-3)  vs #1 UCLA (10-0)

 

Scouting Report

  • Offense: slow pace, balanced, motion
  • Defense: 2-3, press in close and late situations
  • Key Players: So PG Brian Bayyan 9.6 ppg, 3.8 apg
  • Notes: KU's top recruit and leading scorer this season, Fr SG Antoine Holcomb (16.3 ppg), out for more than a month

 

1st Half

 

SG Mark Pettway on fire early, scoring 13 pts in our 19-2 opening run.  But that was just a teaser, as Pettway went on to make his 1st 13 shots, and the rest of the team were making almost every basket from anywhere on the court.  Hands down the best 1st half shooting performance I have seen in my career
 
 
Halftime: Up 76-16

 

Key stat(s)

  • 3PT: UCLA 13-17, KAN 2-9
  • TOs: UCLA 2, KAN 19

Key Players

  • UCLA: SG Mark Pettway 37 pts, 9 stls; PG Clint Wright 21 pts, 7 asts

 

2nd Half

 

Getting outscored by 17 in the 2nd half would normally be a cause of concern for us, but this game was won as early as midway part of the 1st half

 

 

Final Score: Kansas - 59, UCLA - 102
