Hoopsters Go 3-1

The hoop squad picked up a nice win on Saturday. Only about 1,000 were in attendance, but you can't be too surprised at that..when you schedule a home game on OSU-UM day, that's what you're going to get. It is Coach's first win at AA.

We beat a Morehead State team that we even beat last year. They have some uber-JUCO transfer who scored 35 points, but we had all five of our starters in double figures, shot 66.7% (that is accurate), held Morehead to 39.2%, and took care of the ball (12 turnovers) to get an easy win. We led at one point by 19 points.

A few points:

  • Nate Miller had 16 points, breaking out of a shooting slump.
  • Joe Jabukowski played 31 minutes, two treys, six assists, no TOs.
  • Otis only played 6 minutes (we played really small....Marc Larson only played 28, and the rest were all Forwards and Guards).
  • Along those lines, check here for a thread on what is going on with Erik Marschall.
  • We had 24 fouls, which is near our season high. Now that we are back home again, whistle-happy MAC officials seems to be back.
Temple is next, on Saturday. I hope the locals will at least help us get a decent crowd out there.
