Tonight's big game will be the 1st one with the Lady Knights going against the Bloomies.
Congratulations to both Golden Knight squads. Let's make it a clean sweep tonight!
PSAC scores of interest:* IUP lost at Stroud, 57-55. So Stroud stands alone at the top of the East standings at 5-1, their only loss at home to Lock Haven. That has to hurt. IUP is now 4-2 in the West.* Speaking of Lock Haven, they moved to 3-3 in the West with a 85-77 home win over Cheyney.* Slippery Rock leads the West at 5-1 after their 69-64 win at Millersville Friday. The Rock play at Shippensburg tonight. SRU's only PSAC lost came at West Chester.
Nice win by the Knights. In the first half, GU looked like a team that hadn't played in over two weeks ... very sloppy and rusty with a ton of turnovers.It was just a matter of time before the Knights took better care of the ball and broke it open -- the game was decided with 10 minutes to go. Good to see some offense.The only concern was the fact that I hope that playing the starters a ton on the second half doesn't become a trend ... Until Reilly emptied the bench with 1:26 to go, the starters played all but 4-6 minutes of the second half. Torrence scored 12 points in the first half, but barely played in the second half. They won't tire out against a team like Bloomsburg, but fatigue would play a bigger part against more quality PSAC sides.
Great win, but that was some of the strangest substitutions I have seen. CJ as a point? I wish Coach would play some of more of the bench when we are up that much. Great game to the ladies, I enjoy watching them play some great fundamental basketball. Keep it going Knights!
The women deserve a lot more attention than they get. They aren't playing nearly up to their abilities and won a game Friday night that I easily could have imagined they would have lost a year earlier - I think Thies is the difference in the Shaw game a year ago and all of those EUP games. 1/16 has me pretty damn stoked.
