Bearish defensive wins the day

A combined Friday and Saturday post here.  We hit each side of the metro with this.  Quality hot dog on 1 side and a good walking taco on the other.  Schools from all 4 classes included in the viewing party.  Great music as well.

Friday: Blake 65 Mounds Park Academy 52
Story here was Mounds Park Academy's Yahya Madar off the bench.  He comes in and promptly banks 2 triples and converts a 3 point play.  Panthers up 12-8.  Blake does lock down and they add the last 4 of the half for a 6 point halftime lead.  Madar with 2 quick hoops early in the 2nd half to keep the margin at 36-33.  But Blake holds the Panthers to 1 FG over the next 12+ minutes.  The freshman backcourt gets hot with a couple of 3s.  Then that leads to a couple of dump offs for layups inside.  No drama at the end.  Freshmen Gabe Ganz with 18 and Jasper Liu with 17 lead the Blake scoring.  Yahya Madar with 24 points to lead Mounds Park.  Nick Guiang with 10 was the only other help. A quality bit of music with Purple Rain, Love Shack, No Diggity, Happy and a double dose of Michael Jackson.  Once solo and with the Jackson 5.  But the best moment was during a 2nd half time out, when the PA played the Vikings radio call of the Diggs game winner last week.  Then the Blake students lead the entire crowd in a Skol cheer.

Saturday
Game 1: St. Paul Johnson 69 St. Croix Prep 59
To the east side for the always quality walking taco.  A good challenge here for St. Croix Prep (one of the 4AA teams looking to be the 2 seed) against a more athletic Johnson team.  Story here was soph guard Daniel McCarrell for St. Croix Prep.  He knocked down 10 3s and the Lions had Johnson in their sights.  47-40 St. Croix Prep leading with 9:35 left after their 13th 3 of the afternoon.  Their 2-3 zone and Euro ballscreen offense really keeping the pace of this one slow.  But Johnson's pressure just wears on teams and it did here.  The Governors go on a 21-2 run in 6 minutes.  2 Keylon Jackson buckets inside and 2 Kyle Lee hoops get it going.  Lamont White also controlling the paint for Johnson.  A very thin bench for St. Croix Prep and no Jayton Metcalf in the lineup.  2 freshman guards off the bench also played 1 half of JV.    The 3s stop falling until a meaningless one late and Johnson found McCarrell and took him out of it.  He went scoreless for the last 11:55.  Lamont White with 17 points to lead Johnson.  Guards Kyle Lee and Shemar Tucker-Adams add 14 and 13 points for the Govs.  Johnson has won 5 out of 6 and has 3 winnable conference games before the big rematch with Central in 2 weeks.  After the game a youngster breaks out in song on the piano in the Johnson lobby.  Excellent pop music choices plus he threw in some Beethoven

Game 2: Edina 75 Minneapolis Washburn 47
With 2 previous starters out of the Washburn lineup, this had trouble written all over it.  Edina jumps out to a 21-4 lead.  Anders Nelson with 15 of those points and and assist for 2 more.  He ends up with 22 points in the 1st half as Edina builds a 24 point halftime lead.  Washburn starts the 2nd half strong as they do manage to cut the lead to 17.  But Nelson with 3 assists and a tough bucket of his own and Washburn never gets any closer.  Anders Nelson finishes with 28 points.  None of the other 9 scorers for Edina in double figures.  Luke Glenna with a couple of 3s ends up with 9 points.  Jack Middleton with 8.  Terrell Adams leads Washburn with 22 points. Charles Cook-Gordon adds 11.  Edina has now won 7 in a row.  Now they get Orono, at Wayzata, Eden Prairie, Hopkins and at Prior Lake after a 10 day break. Washburn has lost 6 out of 8.

Stars in the corral

Prologue
Trying to get in the small schools is always fun.  Also fun to visit Maranatha and their large concessions setup for a MCAA showdown with Southwest Christian.  Great to catch up with Stars coach (and all time leading scorer) Kit Avery and talk about the old days of the MCAA.  Its fitting with Bethany not having a varsity team this year and SW Christian leaving the league after this season for the Minnesota River.  Its cheese pizza and Sprite on the menu but the meal deal means the Fritos are free.  That's not a bad thing.  Today's song is a random selection as I can't quite get there cause they've all forsaken me.

Game Time:
Maranatha jumps out to a lead and keeps it there.  They are all over the offensive glass for a couple of early putback and an 8-0 lead just over 2 minutes in.  Double figure scorer Hunter Wight with an early 2nd foul and has to sit for the Stars.  But there's still firepower left and Max Steensland with a long 2 and a floater to pull Southwest Christian within 15-12 at the 12:23 mark.  Beijan Newbern with a couple of hoops and the lead expands to 26-16 at the 9:15 mark.  Southwest Christian digs out their trusty matchup zone and that slows the pace.  Anders Olson comes off the bench with a couple of hoops and a block on Newbern.  Stars within 29-26 with just over 5 minutes left in the half.  Newbern steals and scores but Steensland counters with a freebie and a deep triple.  3 free throws to end the half put Maranatha up 38-31 at the break.

Newbern getting it going in the 2nd half with a hoop and then a 3 point play after a blocked shot.  That quickly pushes the lead to 12.  But the Stars won't go away.  Nathan Schwarz cleans up a mess with a 3 and drives for 2 free throws to keep the margin at 8.  Olson adds 2 bunnies around 2 missed Maranatha free throws.  55-51 Maranatha leads inside of 10 minutes left.  But Newbern knocks down a 3 via a quality possession and extra pass to find him in the left corner.  Then he steals a pass on the other ends and takes that for a dunk.  The Stars turn it over and its Newbern with the assist on the finish.  That pushes the lead back to 11 and happened in about 45 seconds so blink and you miss it.  The Stars hit a couple of 3s and are within 10 with 2 minutes left.  But the Stars ending is sloppy and the Mustangs clown around to push the final margin to 78-61.

For Southwest Christian, Max Steensland finishes with 2 triples and 15 points.  Jalen and Hunter Wight combine for 15 so they were held down.  Anders Olson limited but effective minutes and 8 points inside.  Similar to what we saw from Cossy Kowoutu of South last night.  The Stars did have moments were they had difficulty keeping Maranatha off the glass.  But particularly later in the 1st half, they had that fixed and gobbled up the Maranatha missed jumpers or inside forces.  But they ran out of gas down the stretch.  The Stars fall to 7-6 overall, 3-2 in MCAA play.  They visit PACT and host Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity next week as league play continues.

Beijan Newbern leads Maranatha with 26 points.  He scored 14 of those in the 2nd half.  He had a couple of dangerous moments on the break where he was almost under cut (had 1 hard landing) but was OK and did make both hoops.  His shot wasn't there (4-10 FTs) but his open 3 when the game got down to 4 was clutch.  Hakim Daniels as always was active inside.  He had 11 of his 19 points in the 1st half.  Clarence Daniels adds 11.  They go as their activity level goes but the SW Christian zone showed that a half court game is not the way they want to play.  Maranatha improves to 10-5 and they remained undefeated in league play at 5-0.  But a tough stretch awaits in the 2nd half of the league schedule.  They are at Lester Prairie on Tuesday and then host the next 2 teams in the MCAA standings, New Life and St. Croix Prep.

Seeing Orange in the City

Prologue
A light schedule on a Wednesday night takes me to a Minneapolis City game between Washburn and South.  South once upon a time had walking tacos but not tonight.  But the hot dog was solid to go with a full dose of Sprite.  Light crowd on hand.  The Rev saunters in just before the 20 minutes go up on the clock.  Today's tune has to go with our color.

Game Time:
South jumps on the Millers quickly.  Suldan Omar with a triple and a reverse layup.  He'll also add a layup.  That's part of a 17-4 run to start the game.  Charles Johnson trying to keep Washburn close with 4 buckets.  South still up 11 at the 5 minute mark.  Josiah Lossow with the last 2 hoops of the half.  That sends South to the break up 39-26.

South center Cossy Kowoutu sat much of the 1st half with fouls and most of the 2nd half due to the score but he made an impact in minimal time.  He makes a free throw and blocks a shot and that turns into a Curtis Jones layup.  Then he sticks back his own miss to push the lead to 19.  He scores again and adds another block that becomes a South triple.  Then a run out for a layup and an extra pass triple.  62-36 South rolling with 8 minutes left after a 10-0 run.  South very sloppy late but the outcome is never in doubt.  Tigers win 84-64.

Post Game
For Washburn, they played without center Gavin Years.  Plus they lost freshman forward Cade Haskins to transfer at the semester break.  Shots didn't go in and that included open layups and South made them pay.  8th grade Emmett Johnson with 18 points of his 21 points in the 2nd half to lead the Millers.  Terrell Adams with 18 and Charles Johnson 14 (10 1st half).  Washburn falls to 6-7 overall, 2-2 in the Minneapolis City.  This is a rough stretch for the Millers as they've now lost 5 out of 6.  They visit Edison on Friday and then host Edina on Saturday night.

Junior guard Suldan Omar leads South with 18 points.  Soph PG Curtis Jones adds 17, 13 in the 1st half.  Demetrius Gladney with 11.  Cossy Kowoutu with 7 points, a bunch of rebounds and some blocks.  No big body to match him.  He outplayed Andrew Niebuhr on Monday and played well again here.  He's still limited but has to be one of most improved players in the league.  Frosh Damarion Bradley gave good 2nd half minutes in that spot as well.  South improves to 6-8 overall, 2-1 in the Minneapolis City.  2 good back to back wins this week.  They host Henry on Friday which is after Henry plays North tomorrow.  Then tough road games at Roosevelt and St. Louis Park next week.

Orioles shoot down the Eagles

Prologue
All my games.  Are changing every day. In every possible way.  That means I'm off to Totino-Grace for a NW Suburban West division showdown with #6AAAA Osseo.  Its part of a tough schedule stretch for Totino-Grace as this is a back to back (granted at home) after playing Hopkins yesterday.  I was surprised at the sparse crowd on hand for both sides.  A hot dog and more of the delicacy known as A&W Root Beer on tonight's menu.  The JMOA represented along with Lou Smith (rare form tonight) and a surfer guy.  As to today's tune, No Need to Argue.  After all its a tribute, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?

Game Time:
The 1st half was a grind it out affair.  Totino-Grace's switching defense slowed Osseo down but also very patient.  Osseo solid on their end as well but the Eagles also patient on offense.  Zach Theisen with a pair of early 3s in a 9-1 run and Osseo takes a 10-5 lead 6 minutes in.  Theisen another bomb and then he'll convert a turnover to push the lead to 9.  Charlie Jacob with a pair of hoops and Will Schmidt back in with 2 fouls for a 3 point play. That cuts the Osseo lead to 22-19 at the 3:30 mark.  Emmette Paige off a set play high flare screen for 3 and Johnson Fallah knocks down a kickout 3.  Then Theisen flops in front of the Totino bench at the buzzer and Lou Smith gives the call.  TG coach Nick Carroll questions it and Lou goes all Ted Valentine and points at him and then barks at an assistant.  So incredibly out of line.  Plus he had 3 very questionable offensive foul calls on players posting up.  Not necessarily bad, but calls you just don't see.  30-21 Osseo at the half as they score 8 of the last 10.

Theisen and Paige from deep and then a big block by Osseo.  But that momentum is killed by a technical on the way back down the floor.  Jacob makes the 2 techincal free throws and the Eagles score on the possession.  MoKiller timeout by Totino-Grace down 11 with 15:13 left.  Flottmeier posts Paige for a 3 point play.  That cuts the lead to 10 and sends Paige to the bench with 4 fouls and 14 minutes left.  Jacob for 3 and the lead is down to 9 and you like Totino's momentum.

But Osseo's shooting takes over.  Cornell Richardson for 3.  Theisen inside out is wide open for 3 and then why not in transition for 3 more.  That's all part of an 11-0 run and the lead is 20 with 11:32 left.  Theisen 2 more bombs as he scores 5 straight Osseo buckets, all from deep.  That counters a putback, 2 free throws and a 3 from Jacob.  The outcome never in doubt.  Osseo wins 70-50

Post Game
For Totino-Grace, Charlie Jacob with 12 of his 16 in the 2nd half to lead the Eagles.  Will Schmidt 11 of his 13 in the 1st half.  Osseo's defense was very strong and they kept Totino mostly off the offensive board.  Schmidt never got going in the 2nd half and with the hot shooting, there's your result.  The Eagles fall to 6-6 overall and 3-3 in the NW Suburban.  They've now lost 4 in a row in the last week but those are to Maple Grove (top computer ranked team in section 8AAAA), #7 Park Center, #2 Hopkins and #6 Osseo.  They visit Irondale on Friday, then Champlin Park comes in and the return match at Maple Grove next week.  That's followed by a trip to Park Center to end the month.

Zach Theisen goes absolutely nuts for Osseo.  He finishes with 9 3s and 35 points to lead all scorers.  22 of those points and 6 3s in the 2nd half.  Totino-Grace doing a terrible job of finding him and recognizing him.  Prime example was on the 1st trip down the floor, Osseo gets a corner screen the screener look that they've run for years.  That was also true for Emmette Paige who had 15 points and 3 bombs of his own.  While I liked the switching and it was effective early.  Giving up 50 to the top 2 scorers is just unacceptable defensive execution.  Osseo improves to 10-2 overall and remains on top of the west division of the NW Suburban at 6-0.  They finish the 1st rotation thru the division on Friday in a rivalry game vs Maple Grove.  Then on the road to Coon Rapids and the other big rival Park Center next week.

Strategy Session
So the idea of having the ball in the corner and then throwing back to the wing for a shot has become more noticeable in recent years.  Osseo has a couple of sets where they'll do exactly this. If you see high post, wing and corner all filled and the ball goes corner, you can bet its a set.  Osseo will take a hard dribble or 2 baseline but then have the wing guy go off the high post and come back for a look.  They'll also run an NBA curl set where the wing screens away, player curls and the wing comes back off the high post for a look.  It fits well with the euro ball screen stuff they run too.

2018 Dream Classic Night Session

Off to Roosevelt for the 4th annual Dream Classic.  As in past years, I take in the late 2 games.  We get the Roosevelt drum line.  Nothing like a drum line in a small loud city gym.  But not quite like the old drum line in the MTS gym.  Excellent choice to get food ahead of time and how sad that the main beverage choice was Pepsi.  More for me.

Game 1: Minneapolis Roosevelt 80 Simley 49
I was looking forward to the Jake Binley vs Deszi Sims scoring battle in this one.  It certainly did not disappoint.  Binley opens the scoring with a post up out of the Swing Offense.  Sims gets it going right away too.  A steal for a dunk and he converts another turnover.  He adds a triple and then a nice spin and he's off to the races for a coast to coast bucket.  Those end an 18-2 Roosevelt run and the Teddies lead 18-4 7 minutes in.  Sims takes another turnover for a dunk to push the lead to 20.  Binley with a BLOB finish and bonus free throws.  Sims with a triple and an assist on another Teddies 3.  41-17 Roosevelt at the break.

The 2nd half was more interesting than expected.  Binley fouled on a 3 and make all the freebies.  Sam Vujovich with 3 triples and an assist to Binley for another.  Binley also has a putback of his own miss for a 3 point play during the run.  Its 5 triples during the run plus a 3 point play and 3 free throws being fouled on a 3.  That result is a Simley 21-6 run in under 6 minutes.  That cuts the Roosevelt lead to 49-38 with over 11 minutes left.  But its all Roosevelt from there.  Sims dunks a turnover, puts back a miss for a 3 point play, makes 2 free throws on an intentional foul (turnover), spins for a 3 point play and scores again.  That's 12 points in a 17-0 run over the next 4 minutes.  That pushes the lead back to 28, 66-48 inside of 7:30 to play.  The rest is garbage time.  Deszi Sims scores 39 points to lead Roosevelt.  Eric Atson adds 11 for the Teddies.  Jake Binley leads Simley with 22 points.  Tyler Walker with a pair of 3s and 10 points off the Simley bench.  A very lethargic SImley performance on both ends.

Game 2: Minneapolis South 66 Jordan 65
South's quickness was a problem all night long for Jordan.  Add in some timely first half 3s, 5 of them to be exact and South goes to the break with a 37-35 lead. Very balanced South offense.  Jordan's Eric Tiedman (Augustana commit) had 7 quick points but only 1 bucket in the last 12:40 of the half.  Ryan Samuelson with 3 triples in the half to help Jordan hang around.

Back and forth early in the 2nd half.  Tiedman on the elbow iso for a 3 point play to break a tie.  South counters with the next 4 to regain the lead.  Then Josiah Lossow with a long 2 and then a South hustle play gets him a layup.  Jordan takes timeout with 8:55 left down 5 and their staff is not happy with the energy level.  They claw their way back to the lead with Tiedman picking up his play.  South responds and pushes the lead back to 5 with post Cossy Kowouto making a pair of freebies and tipping in a miss.  Jordan not going away.  Big center Andrew Niebuhr runs the floor for a 3 point play.  Then a set side elevator play for Samuelson is a long 2 (thought it was 3) and we're tied at 61 with 2:45 left.  Then he finds Tiedman for 2 free throws.  7-0 Hubmen run and South needs a timeout down 2 with 2:05 left.

Set play for Curtis Jones in the left corner for 3 and South goes up 1.  Time Jordan and Tiedman grabs a miss and feeds Niebuhr for 2 free throws to put Jordan up 1.  Niebuhr with a clutch block but Jordan turns it over. South misses a layup on that turnover but Jordan throws it away trying to save the rebound.  South takes another timeout.  Kowouto scores on Niebuhr with about 20 seconds left to put South up 1.  Jordan takes timeout.  The play breaks down and Samuelson's fade away from the left baseline is no good.  South pulls off the upset.  Cossy Kowouto with 16 points inside.  Josiah Lossow adds 12.  4 others combine for 34.  Ryan Samuelson with 19 points and 3 triples to lead the Hubmen.  Eric Tiedman with 18 points and a bunch of little plays down the stretch to help the cause.  Andrew Niebuhr with 11 points.

A president, a rivalry and a road trip at home

A fun weekend of hoops on the St. Paul side of the metro (excluding the miserable walk to Concordia on Thursday).  Plenty of cola on the menu with Pepsi at Como Park and a double dose of battery acid and pizza at North St. Paul.  A doubleheader so why not eat twice.  After all with the JV game it is an all day adventure.  Then back to Dacha De Czar to watch the final pair of games from my hometown event, the Midwest Players Classic.  The metro as always is represented and they get the nightcap so some thoughts on that as well.

Friday:  St. Paul Como Park 65 St. Paul Harding 46
Since we have a presidential school (Harding) represented, I'll pick a presidential debate to sum this game up.   In fact, like Saturday Night Live, I'll do it in 1 word.  Strategery.  Or you could pick Lockbox if you wanted.  Como Park with a great strategic move to go box and 1 on Harding PG Jovan Christian.  On a catch or ball screen they would trap out of it (a variation I absolutely love).  Then they went simple man and just faceguarded him in the 2nd half.  That locked Christian up holding him to 8 points on the night.  None in the 2nd half.  All of those were on mental breakdowns in the scheme.  But without Christian on the floor Harding fell apart.  A 1 point game becomes 7 when Christian sits early in the half.  A 9 point game inside of 5 minutes and Christian doesn't return and the game gets really out of hand.  Devonte Bolton with 11 points off the Harding bench to lead the Knights.  Donn Ward with 14 to lead Como Park.  Donzello Barros with 3 triples and 13 points.  Timitrius Simmons with 11 points off the Cougars bench.  Harding will need to come up with an answer for that Christian denial option as they really struggled without him being a factor.

Saturday Game 1: North St. Paul 76 Tartan 72
Full house on hand for this one along with the Polars band for a proper rivalry atmosphere.  This one was a battle the entire way as no team held a double digit lead.  Goodnews Kpegeol picks up 2 quick fouls and sits for about 8 minutes of the first half.  That helps Tartan build a 21-13 lead.  The Titans side ball screen offensive look really grinding things to a halt.  Dajuan Carter would bring the Polars back.  But Antawn Kimmons with the answers for a 33-29 Tartan lead at the break.

The 2nd half is the Kimmons vs Kpegeol show.  Kpegeol scores 9 straight Polars points as North reclaims the lead 40-38.  Kimmons then scores 9 straight Tartan points as the Titans take a 51-50 lead.  Then a critical stretch with the Polars scoring 8 of the next 9 for a 58-52 lead.  Post Yao Dumenya cold off the bench with a big 3 during that run.  Then Kpegeol with 6 in a row and then a kickout to soph forward Brenden Lankford-Johnson for a crushing 3 with 2:45 left.  That puts North St. Paul up 65-60.  That was the answer to a couple of Kimmons hoops.  After a couple of missed free throws, Brady Hartman buries a 3 with 3.5 left to pull Tartan within 1.  Tartan gets 1 last chance down 3 but throws the pass away.  A free throw seals the final margin.  Antawn Kimmons with 23 of his 38 in the 2nd half for Tartan to lead all scorers.  That included 16-19 from the charity stripe as he got to the lane at will.  Brady Hartman with a couple of 3s and 11 points.  Andre Jenkins-Whitmore adds 10 for the Titans.   North St. Paul's size was a problem for Tartan on the glass.  Tartan rightfully lets Antawn Kimmons carry the offense but he'll need more help.  Goodnews Kpegeol had to sit a big chunk of the 1st half with foul trouble.  He scored 6 quick points before that and then 17 in the 2nd half plus a critical assist to lead the Polars.  Dajuan Carter with 14 points off the North St. Paul bench and some critical offense late in the 1st half.  He'll get and take a ton of shots next year.  Bryce Phillips with 12 including the final free throws.  Cahlil Golden with 10.

Saturday Game 2: La Crosse Central 57 Woodbury 51
So missing the Big Boar BBQ at the La Crosse Center as part of the Midwest Players Classic.  This is the once beaten and 4th ranked in D2 defending state champion (and Czar's alma mater) La Crosse Central Red Raiders taking on Woodbury.  A snoozefest of a 1st half.  Woodbury goes 2-3 zone the entire way and Central has no plan.  Central goes diamond and 1 all half and Woodbury has no plan.  Michael Jones 1 FG in the half.  Central star soph Johnny Davis (WI offer) with only 2 FG.  Both held to 6 points in the half.  DJ Fleming stepping up with 10 of the 1st 16 Woodbury points.  23-22 Central at the break.  Woodbury with only 1 field goal for about the 9 minutes of the half.

Drew Bramlett off the Woodbury bench with a pair of critical triples.  That puts the Royals up 38-34 with 11:10 left.  Then an away from the play double foul with the ball way out around halfcourt.  That's the 4th foul on Michael Jones with about 9 minutes left.  That will send him to the bench.  UNLV offered Terrance Thompson with 2 putbacks and that puts Central up 44-41 with 6:43 left.  Its part of a 9-0 run.  Jones returns and gets Woodbury back to even at 46 inside of 5 minutes left with 5 in a row.  Central scores, Woodbury misses and Central spreads for a layup with 1:20 left to go up 4.  Its free throws from there.  Central hangs on.  Johnny Davis with 12 points for Central.  DJ Fleming with 4 triples and 18 points to lead Woodbury.  Michael Jones with 16 points, 7-7 FTs with 1 3.

The bright lights of 4AA

Prologue
Dashing thru the snow, drifts up to my waist.  Uphill into the wind, freezing all the way.  Its a cold and snowy trip to Concordia to see the Beacons take on Cristo Rey in a 4AA section battle.  The Pumas stepping out of TCAC play for a challenge.  Concordia trying to separate themselves from a jumbled pack in the middle of the section.  Another venue with 1/4 lb hot dogs,  there's incentive for me to appear more often.  More Red Gatorade to go with it.  Kevin Hart and the 3 man crew get both the JV and varsity games.  A very different but very satisfying music mix on the speakers tonight.  From that we get this tune.

Game Time:
An early 7-0 run for Concordia puts them up 12-8.  After 5 in a row from Cristo Rey allows the Pumas to reclaim the lead, the Beacons score the next 10.  James Sommer with a triple and bucket to break those 2 runs.  Franklin Doyle with a triple and a free throw and that keeps Cristo Rey with 25-20 at the 6:35 mark.  But the rest of the half is a wreck for the Pumas.  Concordia finishes the half on a 24-2 run.  That starts with 14 in a row and finishes with the last 10 of the half.  Only 2 field goals in the last 10:40.  Barnabas Preble and Essay Hagos with triples in the last minute.  That sends the Beacons to the locker room with a 49-22 lead.  13-5 foul differential in favor of Concordia during the half.  That forced a bunch of lineup manipulations. 

The teams slowly go back and forth and its still 57-30 game with 12 minutes left.  Snooze fest.  But then again maybe not.  Concordia goes something like 10 straight possessions with a turnover and couldn't even get into any offense let alone get a shot up.  That was thanks to Cristo Rey throwing all caution to the wind and trapping everywhere make or miss.  Franklin Doyle with 2 triples around 2 Victory George layups via turnovers.  Shots start falling for the Pumas too.  Derek Burgess off the bench for 3..  Doyle and George convert more turnovers.  The Cristo Rey run is 17-0 in 3 minutes and all of a sudden we have a game again.

Cristo Rey would have a chance to cut it to 8 but not convert.  Sommer fouls out and Derek Burgess hits another 3 to keep the Pumas within 62-52 with 6:15 left.  But Gavin Harbo will put the game out of reach for Concordia.  He makes 4 free throws and assists on 2 layups to start a run.  The Beacons add 2 putbacks and convert a turnover.  That run is 16-3 and puts the game out of reach with 2:30 left.  Concordia wins 84-64.

Post Game
Cristo Rey falls to 8-2 and loses their second game in a row.  Victory George leads the way with 15 points.  James Sommer with 13 before fouling out.  Franklin Doyle adds 3 triples and 12 points.  Good move by coach Clay to go small without center John Williams in the 2nd half and really pick up the pressure.  The fouls in the 1st half may have prevented him from going to it earlier.  The TCAC schedule may rack up wins but not many quality wins.  This loss has the potential to knock the Pumas down a notch later.  Will be interesting to see.  Its a busy time on the schedule too.  International School comes calling tomorrow and then they play Minneapolis Henry in the MLK Classic at Totino-Grace on Monday.

Concordia improves to 8-5 overall.  5 of their 6 scorers were in double figures so great balance.  Forward Barnabas Preble leads the way with 24 points.  Senior guard Gavin Harbo with 22 points and some big assists.  5 of the 7 players in the rotation are back next year, Harbo being the biggest loss.  They'll definitely need to find a way to handle pressure when more athletic clubs come after them.  This win definitely gives Concordia a notable section victory.  They are back in Tri-Metro play next week with a tough trip to St. Croix Lutheran and a visit from St. Agnes.

The Tri-metro wars begin

Prologue
The Tri-Metro season kicks off in Brooklyn Center with a big west division game between the #5AA Centaurs and #4AAA Columbia Heights.  Yes it brings back memories of the old Metro Alliance.  The Old Spice guy on duty.  An absolute zoo of a crowd but I manage to weave my way through it for sausage pizza and Dr. Pepper.  We also get the Brooklyn Center cheerleaders and a surprise appearance from the pep band.  They dug out a bunch of classics.  25 or 6 to 4, Poker Face and Don't Stop Believing on the set list.  But it was this classic that gets tonight's tune.

Game Time:
The start of the half is the difference in the half.  Christian Kelly and Quentin Hardrict score off turnovers.  Deundra Roberson with a nice pull up and then a triple.  That's a 9-2 start for Columbia Heights.  Columbia Heights dominating the glass early in the game.  Columbia Heights keeping the pace reasonable with their flat 3-2 zone.  That held the Centaurs to 1-13 from 3 in the 1st half.  Wendell Matthews effective on post touches as well.  32-23 Heights at the half.

Good start to the 2nd half for Brooklyn Center.  Lu'Cye Patterson with a couple of tough hoops in an 8-1 run to start the half.  That cuts the Hylanders lead to 33-31 just before 3 minutes into the half.  Heights counters with a banked Bryan Mayfield 3 to start a 8-0 run and the lead is back to 10.  Roland Russ doing nice dirty work inside with 2 hoops plus a 3 point play.  Patterson with a difficult spin and finish and the lead is down to 6 with 10 minutes left.

Hardrict jumper, Matthews in the post for 2 and the lead is 11.  Then Matthews with 4 free throws and a lob finish around a Rudy Tahir triple.  60-50 Heights inside 5 minutes left.  Then a Centaur missed front end and 2 more freebies missed.  Matthews with a pair of 3 point plays and another hoop as the lead grows to 17 with 2 minutes left.  Heights very sloppy turning it over late but the end result is not in danger.  Columbia Heights wins 81-70.  But the final doesn't really do the game justice.

Post Game
For Brooklyn Center, Lu'Cye Patterson leads the way with 23 points.  3 other starters also in double figures with Rudy Tahir scoring 14.  The game was a slower pace than Brooklyn Center would have liked.  Once again the interior play was too much for the Centaurs to stop.  Brooklyn Center falls to 8-3 overall and 0-1 in the Tri-Metro.  This game begins a brutally tough 5 game stretch of the schedule over these 2 weeks.  They play Esko on Saturday in the Breakdown MLK classic in Duluth.  Then league games vs #1AAA De La Salle and at St. Croix Lutheran next week.  They end the stretch a week from Saturday against a tough St. Paul Central squad.

Wendell Matthews leads Columbia Heights with 19 of his 25 in the 2nd half.  But with a lack of touches and difficulty finishing at the basket to start the 2nd half, he could have had 40.  I was surprised they didn't go to him even more as there was little resistance inside.  Quentin Hardrict with a very solid 15 points.  You can really see the difference he makes running the show.  Christian Kelly with 13, Deundra Roberson with 11.  Columbia Heights remains undefeated at 10-0 and now 1-0 in the Tri-Metro.  They have 3 winnable games coming up but don't overlook a trip to Fridley next Friday.  Two major tests lurk at the end of the month against Hopkins (at Trinity) and hosting St. Croix Lutheran.  That's just the start of a tough back half of the schedule.

Huskies Bite Kennedy at Buzzer

Prologue
To Bloomington Kennedy to see the Eagles host St. Anthony.  Interesting non-conference matchup.  The new bleachers and redone floor definitely help the atmosphere.  But its still one of my least favorite buildings out there.  We're back to normal concessions with a hot dog.  No Sprite tonight as I resort to fruit punch Gatorade.  Minnehaha AD Josh Thurow with the white hat duty tonight for the officiating crew.

Game Time:
St. Anthony once again playing without shooter Aaron Smith.  He's still out due to an injury suffered in the South St. Paul championship game.  The early pace is to St. Anthony's liking.  But Kennedy takes a 10-7 lead thanks to a layup out of the THE WORST VERSION OF THE WORLD'S WORST OFFENSE.  Coach Jamin Cook going with the screen and pop version of the flex.  Drew Nelson a pair of triples and St. Anthony goes up 17-13 at the midway point of the half.  Kennedy quick fouls put the Huskies in the bonus in the half but no real advantage gained.  The teams trade 3s at the 6 minute mark.  22-21 St. Anthony with the lead.  Then another Drew Nelson 3 and Sullivan Jahnke converts 2 dropoffs for layups.  Tait Nelson fouled at the buzzer for 1 of 3 free throws.  The 8-0 run puts the Huskies up 31-25 at the break.

Kennedy turns up the full court pressure in the 2nd half.  That leads to 6 turnovers in the 1st 4 minutes.  St. Anthony finding it very hard to generate any offense.  Markel Aune 2 bombs and a free throw to put Kennedy up 34-33 after those 4 minutes.  Tait Nelson with a nice spin and he turns that into a 3 point play.  39-38 St. Anthony with 8:49 left.  Then 6 in a row from Kennedy thanks to 2 hoops and 2 free throws from Isaac Coutier.  Isaiah Stone converts a turnover inbetween that.  45-39 Kennedy with 6:30 to play.

St. Anthony rallies with Tait Nelson making bonus free throws and then finding Jahnke for a 3 point play.  That ties the game at 44 with 4:39 left.  Markel Aune drives and scores and then a steal for 2 more.  Kennedy by 4 with 3:05 left.  Mickey Jah with a triple off a BLOB.  Then a couple Kennedy misses around a St. Anthony turnover.  Jah scores with 1:14 left and its 49-48 Huskies back on top.  Kennedy runs a set for Aune that is well defended.  He misses an open lane jumper but Kennedy gets it back with 32 ticks left.  He then hits the same fade from the foul line with 26 seconds left and Kennedy is back on top.  Timeout St. Anthony.

Its an elbow entry and flare screen for Tait Nelson.  He gets a great look at 3 but it goes in and out.  It ends up in Stone's hands and he's fouled with 8.2 left.  St. Anthony takes time and Stone misses the front end.  Jah will push it back the other way hard.  He finds Jahnke for a wide open layup but Stone comes from nowhere and swats it out of bounds with 0.5 seconds left. One last timeout for the Huskies.  They run a screen and roll back that is defended.  But Jah's defender leaves him alone in the backside corner.  He catches and calmly buries the 3 at the buzzer.  St. Anthony wins 52-50.

Post Game
For Bloomington Kennedy, Markel Aune scores 13 of his 23 in the 2nd half.  That included the last 6 Kennedy points.  Jaylen Williams and Isaac Coutier 7 points each.  I was surprised Kennedy didn't run even more of THE WORLD'S WORST OFFENSE.  I thought it was the most effective stuff they ran all night (yes it kills me to say that knowing how much I despise it).  While they did get switches for post mismatches out of their euro ball screen look, I didn't see it doing that much for them.  Kennedy falls to 3-7 overall but 6 of those losses are by 8 points or less.  That includes this buzzer beater, a 2 OT loss at  Mounds View and a 1 point loss to section foe St. Paul Harding.  The Eagles host Jordan on Thursday before kicking off Metro West play next week.

Mickey Jah's game winner gives him 16 points to lead St. Anthony.  He scored the last 8 Huskies points in the last 2:45 with a pair of clutch triples.  Tait Nelson adds 14 points.  Drew Nelson with all 3 triples and 9 points in the 1st half.  Jah had 4 2nd half field goals while the rest of the roster had 3 combined.  He also did a ton of ball handling vs the press.  That diamond press really caused St. Anthony problems in the 2nd half when Kennedy went to a smaller lineup.  The Huskies improve to 7-5 overall.  This one was after 2 losses by a combined 9 points.  The schedule helps with 6 of the next 7 at home but they aren't easy.  Mahtomedi, Fridley and Roosevelt all come calling in the next 2 weeks.

Play of the Day
Here's the game winner.  The lineup is both corners, ball side block and backside elbow.  Ballside block sets the diagonal screen for the backside elbow and then rolls back to the backside block looking for a layup.  Jah was set up in the backside corner and its his defender who often helps on the roll back.  In this case the defender was too far away and Jah made the Eagles pay.
