1 Down, 366 to Go

Coach Orr won his first game as Falcon coach last night against Belmont, a pretty good team that made the Big Dance last year and beat UC the night before. A nice win for our team, and just what they needed as they get going. UC is tonight. A win will start to get some attention for our program.

Belmont is a three team and they shot real well against UC, but not against us. They shot 33% for the game and 26% from 3. Coach says our game plan was to focus on the three, and he says we defended it well.

Other notes:

  • Rotation: Same as before (Clements, Hamblet, Larson, Knight, Polk, Moten, Miller with Sims and Jakubowski getting <10>
  • We were in control of this game the whole way. We were up 10 five minutes into the game, led by as much as 19, and the lead dipped inside 10 only once.
  • Four players were in double figures...Knight (20), Larson (14), (Hamblet 12), and Moten (10).
  • 21 fouls (still needs work) and 13 Turnovers (pretty good). Larson fouled out for the second time this season.
  • Note: Eric Marschall is said to be injured and has yet to play.
  • We shot 50% from the field, in part thanks to our inside game. Only 2-11 from 3, but we don't have any Samarco-like shooters.
  • We were outrebounded 40-36, but that's better than the first game. Gave up 18 offensive boards again.
  • Much of this has been done with Nate Miller being absolutely stone cold from the field. We know he can score, and he'll be another weapon when his game comes around.
