Providence at Roosevelt Thoughts

Nothing else tonight but a pigtail game with Providence Academy making the trip into the city to take on Roosevelt. Roosevelt turns it over and Zach Money converts. Providence with the 1st bucket of the game and by golly we might have a game. Pull the ball out! 4 Providence turnovers in a row force the Lions to take a timeout down 6-2 at the 14:40 mark. James Smith with 2 layups inside for a 14-6 Roosevelt lead at the 12:45 mark. Providence staying close with a John Lundbeck triple and Alex Eaton with a fadeaway and a short pullup. 18-15 Roosevelt with 9:55 left in the half.

And that's all that really worth noting. Roosevelt forces 10 turnovers over the rest of the half for a 26-4 run with only 1 Providence field goal. 44-19 Roosevelt at the break. Providence with 17 turnovers on my sheet. James Smith with 18 points on layups thanks to dump offs against pressure or on penetration against the Lions 2-3 zone. Eddie White the main guy responsible for that. More of the same in the 2nd half. Providence turns it over 27 times in the 1st 25 minutes. The 2nd half is really ugly as Roosevelt rolls 78-28. Eddie Boler with 15 of his 23 in the 2nd half. John Lundbeck with 10 for Providence. They lose only 1 senior, unfortunately that's Zach Money their best player. Roosevelt travels to Holy Family on Thursday.
