Almost nothing of note tonight except North Dakota State in the building to watch Jonah Travis. Tough as a college coach to have to watch this one.
Keith Wood with a putback at 17:05 and Mounds Park leads, Mounds Park leads!!! Then they get a stop on defense. Pull it out, pull it out!! Not going to happen and that's your Mounds Park Academy Panthers highlight for the evening. Jalen Jaspers with a pair of 3 point plays around a nice JonahTravis pivot and spin. 2 steals for buckets and Jaspers coast to coast etc etc etc. The Islanders pressure defense was enough to almost force 10 second calls with straight man pressure. Every ball pickup seemed like a 5 second call waiting to happen. Jonah Travis with 4 dunks in this one. 1 from the short corner vs zone on a nice pass from Walter Franklin, 1 on an inbound lob and another early in the 2nd half as John Hertle goes off the glass to him for a 2 handed flush. 51-21 Islanders at the half. Their starters are gone at 14:22 of the 2nd half. 71-30 when we reach running time with the benches. DeLaSalle rolls 84-38.
Massive soph lefty Nate Burstein leads Mounds Park with 12 points. He showed some handle and stepped out and knocked down a 3 in this one. Jalen Jaspers with 14 of his 18 in the 1st half. Jonah Travis finishes with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 2 blocks that were back to back vs Burstein.
