So after trying to watch an mindblowingly shitty webcase I was disapointed. I actually picked Halifax to pull this out in a close game – but I forgot the number one rule of being a Rainmen fan: Halifax do not win games unless that have a comfortable lead coming out of the last media time out. If Halifax are losing in the final three minutes then you know Halifax are going down in a flaming wreck.
The refs were a bit suspect but that’s not why Halifax lost. All around a disapointing game after a close first half.
A few brief thoughts:
– Tracy Morgan Tony Bennett played well but he is definitely a shootfirst guard. I don’t have a problem with him but he should not be running the point. When he is running the offense he dominates the ball and no one else gets touches, even when they’re open. When he was in the game Sanders was not getting the ball on those pick and rolls that get run every posession.
– Huge game from Jimmy Twyman who had 31pts, 24 for Sanders and 20 for Bennett, unfortunately there wasn’t a whole lot of help from everyone else.
– Vermont out rebounded Halifax 49-36. Gross.
– The box score isn’t up yet but I don’t think that Kevin Hammack or Tyronne McNeal got in the game at all.
Here’s hoping they can get Manchester again.
