Cretin-Derham Hall vs Tartan Observations (4AAAA Semi #2)

Right to the action for game 2 as CDH takes on Tartan. CDH gets out to a qu-ick 11-0 lead in the 1st 3:20 thanks to 7 quick Michael Floyd points and 3 Tartan turnovers. Max Ryan and Marc Sonnen hit back to back 3s to make it 15-11 with 11:25 left in the half. But Tartan can't make a shot in this game. They go without a field goal the last 9:15 of the half and its 35-17 CDH at the break. Floyd with 13. Sam Ryan with 8 and Marc Sonnen the other 7 for Tartan.

More of the same in the 2nd half for Tartan. Another Floyd bucket makes it 39-19 with 14:25 left. Tim Lubke finally breaks a 14 minute period for Tartan without a field goal by knocking down a 3 at 13:08. But they go almost 6 minutes before their next field goal. With 9:50 left its 45-25, but Tartan turns up the D and gets as close as 50-38 with 6:15 left. But the finish is elementary. CDH wins 70-55.

Floyd with 17 to lead CDH. Seantrel Henderson had a rough night at the FT line (0-6) but did have 14 points and was a factor on the glass. Marc Sonnen with 22 for Tartan, Sam Ryan with 16. With about 9 minutes left Floyd comes back in the game and there's some wondering why (16 point game). He goes baseline with about 7 or 8 minutes left and gets called for a charge but he comes down very awkwardly and he leaves for the night. Something appeared to be wrong with the left leg after the treatment he got. Hopefully this isn't serious and he's fully ready for the big showdown Tuesday vs Sibley.

Tartan had a stretch across the 1st and 2nd halves where they had exactly 1 FG in 20 minutes. But they did hit 14 FTs including 9 of 12 from Sonnen during the stretch. Between 2 pt field goals they had a stretch of 23 minutes 10 seconds. 18-25 FTs, 15 FGs. Staggering numbers as I can't recall an offensive performance like this. The FG% numbers would be really be interesting to see for this game. Shawn Marlowe, James Pritschet and Manani Beavers combined for 6 points so not having an inside presence really hurt Tartan tonight.
