Tommies win a battle of cats

Prologue
The Rev and big Zach once again on duty together.  A lower profile game for that crew as its PACT visiting Edison.  The teams come out for warmups with 25 min on the clock and the Rev is still on the rail in street clothes.  Gotta love that.  Tonight's walking taco was just nacho cheese as I declined the jalapenos.  Simple but effective to go with a regular Sprite.  None of this 0 calories stuff tonight.  Today's tune is also from Tuesday but is heard everywhere to get the crowd to make noise.

Game Time:
PACT can't buy a bucket in this one.  They don't get their 2nd field goal until the 5:35 mark of the half.  That allows Edison to jump out to a 19-4 lead.  PACT not helping its own cause with double digit turnovers in the 1st half.  That 2nd field goal is a Cade Johnson triple and breaks the ice.  He adds another bomb and a nice cut for 2 more.  26-14 Edison at the break.

2 quick Edison hoops pushes the lead to 16 but we never reach blowout territory.  Jaylen Schweiger gets going with a couple of buckets and frosh Jordan Stone with a 3. PACT within 30-21 with 11:30 left.  Tenzing Chime counters another Cade Johnson triple with 2 buckets of his own.  He'll add a lefty drive after 2 Johnson freebies.  That keeps the lead at 13 with 2:35 left.  Edison wins 49-36.

Post Game
PACT falls to 1-1 with the loss.  Star guard Cade Johnson leads the Panthers with 10 of his 15 in the 1st half.   The ball wouldn't go in for him though as he shot 4-18 on my sheet.  Jaylen Schweiger with 11 of his 13 in the 2nd half to keep the game interesting.  Turnovers a huge problem and were the difference in the game.  Too much athletic pressure on the ball for PACT to handle.  PACT hosts Cristo Rey on Friday.

Edison wins their home opener to improve to 1-1 on the season.  Tenzing Chime leads the Tommies with 18 points.  George Terry with 3 3s and 11 points.  Forward Jackson Rusnucko held scoreless.  But the defense picked up the slack.  The Tommies visit Nova Classical on Tuesday.
