Falcon Hoops Posts Strong Win

The BG Hoops team posted a strong win against Arkansas State at AA tonight, leading comfortably most of the way to win 81-72. A little harder to comment, since I was limited to the (still excellent) play calls of Todd Walker, with a trip to BG not in the cards tonight.

Here's what I noticed.

  • We shot 52.7%, while holding A-State to 43.9%.
  • This is a rematch from our D1 opener. They beat us by 10 down there, so it was nice to play so well up here.
  • Dusan continues to play better and better...10 points, 5 reb, 6 assists and 3 TOs.
  • Samarco....what can you say? 29 points, 5 Reb, 4 assists and 2 TOs in 39 minutes. Coach said in the post game that he got the 29 with 18 shots, and it wouldn't be bad if he got a bunch more.
  • Marschall had 14 in the first half, but hurt his foot and did not appear again. Let's hope the injury is not serious.
  • Coach felt we defended badly. Running is in the offing for our team.
  • We had 1,700 in AA. That shows a gradual increase in attendance. Hopefully, a nice crowd shows up for the game against C. Arkansas on Saturday. We've come a long way since the Furman game.
There may be more, but its late. For now, that's what we have. That is 3 wins in a row, and a consistent improvement in play each week.
