Mackey drove the bus, filled up stat sheet and was very good. Importantly, as TMH pointed out zero turnovers. Led the team in rebounds, assists, and steals, adn even had a blocked shot.
Goldy, had 4 and 3, but helped hold the senior lumpkins to 4 for 10 shooting, lot of Lumps off boards off his own misses it seemed. Goldy held his own, his defensive presence is so much better then it was in Nov & Dec, not leaving his feet as much and staying in position. Baltimore chipped in nicely, had 5 boards and and a nice putback.
Depth of our backcourt man, they all freeking contributed. BJ had a huge steal at the end, had some nice drives, finished with 6 points. Schaef hit a big 3 ball from the side when AU was making second half run, and hit some FTs late and another sick behind back pass to MM. SC missed some 3 balls in 1st half but kept confident, had nice transition layup off MM feed and then 3 ball next time down. AD played well, hit a big transition 3 and another deuce. All 9 guys stepped up. Tell you what, if I asked anyone on here if we’d win at American pre-season with 2 points from GK and CJ combined, you;d think I was crazy….but it just happened. GK picked up some bad fouls, has to be smarter then that, and only had 2 points…
Holden really carried us and put us back in this game and gave us a chance to get our feet underneath us, huge gutty in.
Bucknell won again, both of us at 2-0, rest of league at 1-1 or 0-2. Good start, ‘gate on saturday night now.
