St Croix Lutheran at Roosevelt Thoughts

Prologue
No concession stand tonight which is a shame and I was under the impression that all the JV games were at SCL so that we'd have boys varsity only.  So much for that assumption as this was a varsity doubleheader with the ladies playing the night session.  So we get started half an hour late, so much for the late game I wanted to do.

Game Time
Let's just say the first half had offense at a premium.  A Cameron Cummings 3 point play puts St Croix on top 13-10 at the 11:05 mark.  Wesley Tucker finishes the half with a steal for a layup.  That gives St Croix Lutheran at 26-24 halftime lead.  Very ugly half of basketball.  James Smith keeping Roosevelt in it with 10 points.  Calvin Jenkins with 9 for Roosevelt in the half.

The start of the second half seals this one.  Nasir Garad with a jumper, a triple and then a post up.  Smith with a tip and Jenkins with a 3 point play  43-27 Roosevelt with 11:25 left . Total run is 17-3 to start the half.  SCL tries to make a come back behind a layup and triple from Mark Lawrence.  That cuts the Roosevelt lead to 46-40 with 8:13 left.  The Crusaders get no closer.  Roosevelt wins 62-55.

For St. Croix Lutheran, the sophomores guards once again lead the way.  Wesley Tucker 17 points and 6 rebounds on my sheet..  Cameron Cummings with 15 points but couldn't get it going in the 2nd half.  The young Crusaders fall to 0-3 on the season against a soft schedule.  Next up, at Tartan to start the Tartan holiday tournament.

For Roosevelt, Calvin Jenkins finishes with 18 points.  SCL didn't have a good answer for him.  James Smith with 10 of his 12 points in the first half.  Nothing special here.  Roosevelt gets their first win and they have a couple of winnable games coming up before Christmas.
