SV 70: TSV
Part two of Haxa Cup was again a success for the men of SV70. Playing against a really good TSV team, we was able to finish the preseason with a win. It was an important game because TSV beat us early in the preseason. Hoping to finish up the preseason on a good note the guys came out and handle business from the start.
In the first quarter TSV came out ready to play and made tough shots, but we was still able to win the quarter 20:15. We still made bad turnovers and led to TSV getting easy lay ups. Taking care of the ball will be a big thing for us going into the season. In the second quarter things changed, we got stops and we was able to play fast. I think we are a better team when we locked down on defense. We also made shots, especially from the outside, making six 3 pointers in the second. At half time we was ahead 51:30.
Third quarter, we went to the bench more giving the young guys a chance. Although we did not score like we can the defense was really good. The young guys showed they can help the team out. We made too many turnovers, but defensively the stayed focus only allowing 18 points.
I think we lost our rhythm in the fourth quarter. Good thing for us is that we gave ourselves a big enough lead in the first half of the game. Overall I think we showed a lot of good things in the preseason. I can see things going in the right direction. Next week will be an important week of practice before the season start on Saturday.
Scoring: Lewis 28, Braun 10, Toptan 11, Paulsen 10, Kiknadze 8, Spitale 7, Bambullis 5, Fouhy 4, Micanovic 2, Braun, Stockey
