20.52

TM: 14-3 with 11:37 to play in the first half.

18.25

TM: Oh my…ORU just blew a 4 on 1 opportunity with a travel. Tie game.

TM: Lions are killing themselves at the line. 50-47 Seawolves

15.42

TM: Anthony Ireland had to switch his #3 jersey to a #20 jersey (got blood on it? tore? not sure) and since then he’s been balling. This is like when MJ wore #12 on Valentine’s day. Knowing Anthony Ireland was forced to wear #20 in one of his collegiate games will probably win you a trivia game one day. Lions within 4.

15.35

TM: Seawolves just got up 10… Then Ireland cut it to 8. 46-38 with 14:38 to play.

15.28

12.36

TM: 38-26 Cats with 5 to play in the first half. Staff is doing work. 10 points on 4-5 shooting.

23.16

TM: 49ers up 15 with 7 left. Henry gets his 6th assist with a beautiful laser pass inside to Clayton.

23.08

TM: Bell-Holter picks up his fourth foul. That’s crucial – he’s done a good job denying Braswell down low… Couple minutes later, ORU puts him back in. Gotta take that chance down 15 with 8 mins to go.

22.58

TM: This is turning into a Henry love fest, but the 49ers are much better when he’s their primary ball handler. Henry has great vision and is killing it out of the pick n roll.

22.51

TM: 5 pts, 5 stls, 4 assists for Henry. 49ers up 45-35 with 15 mins left.

20.49

I just watched an 8 year-old almost beat a grown man in a game of bump!  Million dollar shot coming up!

20.47

39-27 at the half…and all I can say besides SMU just getting out hustled is that I hope their guards have some ankle insurance…because this kid Isaiah Canaan is going OFF.  Definitely feels like a championship game so far.

20.44

Murray State is winning in just about every intangible, unrecorded statistical category right now.

20.42

TH: Murray State – 10 of 15 from field thus far, USM – 5 of 17…no further explanation needed

Murray State’s Jewuan Long wins the “where’d this guy come from” award thus far.  He’s got 6 points and a couple of boards.

20.24

This just in…SMU only has 4 rebounds in the first 10 minutes of action.  SMU’s bigs are clearly more athletic, but just aren’t getting it done on the boards so far.

20.22

Murray State is doing a good job on crowding SMU’s perimeter players overall.  On a side note though, former UAA track and field star David Registe just got a huge standing O from the crowd for his recent silver medal finish in the long jump at the Pan Am Games.  He’s a local btw.  #SHOOTOUT2011

20.19

Murray State is clearly in the zone right now offensively.  But don’t sleep on the golden eagles.  J Mills just cut the lead to nine with a slicing lay up in traffic.  17-8 with just under 13 minutes to go in the 1st.

20.18

TH: MSU duo Poole and Canaan at it again already. MSU ahead 17-8 with 13:32 to play

20.17

Senior guard Angelo Johnson of SMU just banked a “whoopsy” 3-pointer from the top of the key.

20.14

Isaiah Canaan gets buckets, straight up.  Him and Lashay Page from SMU can flat out shoot the rock.  Page just buried a contested jumper off the dribble btw. 7-4 Murray State.  15:45 left in the 1st half.

20.13

TH: Murray State is a team to keep in eye on after the Shootout is over. They are one of those bracket buster Mid-major teams that can surprise some people come March

20.11

Watson on Canaan, been waiting for this match up…#lowkey.

20.10

Ladies and gentleman, allow me to reintroduce myself!  Says SMU guard Neil Watson…

Dartmouth playing the fouling game now.  This one’s over folks.  Final score coming soon.

16.07

Who JUST subbed back into the game btw.

16.06

Andre Coimbra on the block, going to work!  Extends the Central lead to 15 with 2:30 remaining.  Only chance Dartmouth has…Rufful young man Rufful…

15.59

Andre Coimbra showing a nice touch on the low block…J-Golden from Dartmouth on the other end crashing the boards hard…his and 1 put back brings it back to ten.  51-41.  Dartmouth can’t keep trading baskets.  5 minute warning.

15.57

After getting his stuff tossed for the umpteenth time, Brooks cleans up the mess, and 1…wait…player control foul.  #FAIL.

15.55

Rufful’s up to 15 points for the game, Brooks however only has a point, literally.

15.53

Ziegler’s a rebound shy of a double double.  He’s got 20 and 9 with 7:56 to go.  48-38 Central.

15.51

Ziegler with the……………..HANGING…..RUNNER AND 1!!!!! This is the Ziegler I came to see.  Misses the free throw, but next defensive play, earns another trip back to the line.

15.48

Saved by the bell…Maldunas from Dartmouth gets another chance after air balling a free throw because of a lane violation.

15.47

Mbaigoto with his FIFTH rejection of the contest.  My man has blocks down to a science.

15.45

Oh, and McBroom from Central has four helpers with no turnovers.

15.44

Dartmouth freshman John Golden has won the heart/hustle award  for the last 90 seconds.  Dude’s putting in work in the second half.  Has his team within eight.

15.42

Golden with the tre!!!! BOOOOM!!! 43-35 Central.

15.41

John Golden splashes a 3 pointer on the wing to cut the lead to nine.

15.40

Rufful hitting turn around fade aways on the baseline for Dartmouth…he’s in the zone.  41-29 Central leading with 12:18 left.

15.39

This dude is setting his teammates up on some Will Smith “Hitch” stuff…NO LIE!  Official dime count coming soon…

15.34

Rufful’s got all nine of Dartmouth’s points this half.  He has 12 of their 27.

15.33

Rufful getting hot!!!

15.30

Rufful, back to back scores.  Last one in the face of Ziegler.

15.29

Rufful give Dartmouth their first points of the half off a nifty spin in transition.

15.27

I know Dartmouth is in the Ivy League and all, but Mbaigoto from Central is teaching the Big Green a few lessons….CLASS IS IN SESSION!!!

15.08

Derek Jackson nails a tough jumper from the elbow to end the half.   Puts Central up 32-17.

15.07

Got some Ziegler/Central hecklers in the crowd…

15.06

J-Golden gives The Big Green fans some hope with a nice rhythm 3-pointer.  30-17 Central with about a minute to go in the 1st.

15.05

Olivier just said GIMME DAT!!! to a Dartmouth lay up attempt.

15.03

Central coming off of the long delay showing a full court press.  Turnover Dartmouth, lay up Central.  Pretty much been the story of the first half.

14.58

Hospitality Room…brb…

14.56

Technical difficulties at the Sullivan Arena…scoreboard just went out.  #FAIL.

14.55

Trey Ziegler with the deflection at mid court….UUHH…OOOHH…..EURO….AND 1!!!!!  Trey’s offensive game has opened up with Central getting into transition so much this game.

14.52

Crowd is in a coma and despite moderately hard  play from their players on the floor, the Big Green bench looks ready to quit.  23-13 with 5 minutes left in the 1st.

14.50

Jvonte Brooks from Dartmouth hasn’t showed up tonight.  He’s on the floor, but has pretty much been a non factor for the first 15 minutes of the game.

14.48

The Big Green have switched to a match up zone… and don’t look now, but my man R.J. Griffin from Dartmouth got a fresh hair cut since his last game!  His hair du change isn’t helping him on the court as much though.

14.45

6’7″ forward Olivier Mbaigoto from Central has a silky smooth game.  A very solid 3 man for the Chippewas.

14.44

paid off* yes I am allowed to edit my live blog spelling.

14.43

On a side note…Central forward Andre Coimbra has shelved his normal Anderson Varejao look http://tiny.cc/iknrg for a ninja bun.  Looks like the change has payed off.

14.39

McBroom just scorched the net from deep times 2 in the last two possessions.  But don’t sleep on The Big Green, Rufful and Trotter answered them both.

14.37

Central is looking renewed defensively.  They’ve really started this game with a sense of urgency.  #chipontheirshoulder

14.36

Derek Jackson makes something out of nothing with a desperation three just before the shot clock expired.  Next play Central forces a turnover and Ziegler gets to the line (makes both) on the 3 on 1 break.  13-4 Central.

14.32

Dartmouth cutting into the lead, 8-4 now with 15:37 left.  Official timeout.

14.31

After the swat on the other end by Brazillian Andre Coimbra, soph. guard Trey Ziegler jukes out a Dartmouth defender with a smooth euro step to free himself up for the transition lay up.

14.29

The kid Austin McBroom from Central has really impressed me this weekend.  Listed at 6’0″, but he looks about 5’7″ out here.  Regardless, he’s a baller.  Just hit a nice elbow jumper to put his team up 6 to zip.

14.27

Dartmouth vs Central Michigan just tipped off a second ago.  The Chippewas have jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead. #SHOOTOUT2011

16.26

Player of the Game honors goes to CMU’s Olivier Mbaigoto who narrowly missed out on a double-double with 23 points and 9 boards on the afternoon

16.25

Mark it down and put it in the books! CMU takes down the 82-72 victory over the UC Irvine Anteaters. The Chippewas are headed to the 4th/6th place game tomorrow against Dartmouth while UCI draws UAA in the 7th/8th place game tomorrow at noon

16.16

78-69 Chippewas still lead it with 31.7 seconds remaining

16.09

Zeigler with a sensational dunk coming from the baseline! That facial puts CMU out ahead by 15

16.04

Anteaters are back within 10 suddenly. Perhaps they heard me are trying to put my foot in my mouth for me and prove me wrong?

70-60 CMU leads with 2:23 left

16.02

If you get a chance, come down and watch Trey Zeigler play. Great ability on and off the ball, good size and length, solid defensively as well. He’s put up 18 on the night. Did I mention he was the coach’s son?!

15.53

UC Irvine not showing much sign of life here. Comeback looks highly unlikely barring a miracle. Still time left though, CMU on top 65-48 with 5:55 to play

15.40

CMU’s Zeigler now has 16 points on the day, 10 of which have come from this half alone.

15.40

59-41 CMU continues to widen their lead. 11:49 left to play

15.33

All Chippewas so far in the 2nd half. They have extended their lead to 16 as its 54-38 CMU just over 4 minutes into the period

15.28

Here we go with 2nd half action. Remember, winner of this game moves into 4th/6th place game against Dartmouth tomorrow

UCI

Wilder – 14 points
McNealey – 6 boards

Michael Wilder from somehwhere out in the atmoshphere drains a three as the buzzer goes off to end the half! UCI still trails 43-31 as we enter the break

14.55

What a pretty stroke from CMU’s Austin Keel. Back to back three pointers has pushed the Chips back out to a 38-21 lead on UCI with 4:13 to play here before the break.

14.45

24-15 now with UCI starting to claw their way back in. CMU going big with 4 forwards while CMU has 3 guards on the court. 10 minutes to play in half

14.36

Chippewas all over the the Anteaters. 16-5 already. CMU’s Olivier Mbaigoto has 9 points already

14.34

We got a battle for the best ‘Fro here in this game. UCI’s Michael Wilder up against CMU’s Andre Coimbra. Our own Demietrius Preston has even compared the two to Moochie Norris from his days with the Houston Rockets

14.29

CMU jumps out to a quick 6-0 lead right out of the gates just 1:30 into the game

14.22

Taylor Hall here back to bring you action from our next game here at the Sully. We got the Anteaters of UC Irvine squaring off against the Central Michigan Chippewas for the right to play Dartmouth tomorrow in the 4th/6th place game in the Shootout.

14.01

64-52 final.  Seawolves put up a good fight, but Dartmouth shutting down Rohde and controlling the glass I believe was the difference in the game.  Central Michigan and UC Irvine coming up next.  STAY TUNED FOLKS!

13.59

Ridgeway gets a warm ovation from the crowd after picking up his fifth foul.

13.58

Seawolves not throwing in the towel.  Ridgeway earn s a trip to the line after a gutsy rebound over a few taller players.  Dude’s got mad bounce.  Makes one of two.

13.55

Looks like UAA’s gonna fall to 0-2 in their tournament, but Lonnie Ridgeway may be signing a few autographs/posters after the game.  Just saying…

13.53

After a long miss by Phillip Hearn (heat check), Lonnie Ridgeway comes out of NOWHERE and slams it two handed over two Dartmouth defenders!!! Inspirational play of the game.

13.51

P-HEARN with another three!!!  Short lived celebration as Matt LaBove gets and and 1 lay up in transition over UAA’s Taylor Rohde who collects his fifth foul.  61-47 with a minute to go.

13.48

Rufful’s up to about 17 points with 6 boards and 2 dimes.

13.46

PHILLIP HEARN for three!!! It’s good.  Timeout Seawolves 54-40 with 2:18 on the clock.

13.46

Dartmouth successfully playing keep away from the Seawolves.  UAA fell asleep on the backside, alley oop lay in to Rufful.

13.41

This just in…Dartmouth is out rebounding UAA 31 to 19 in the game.

13.39

And if that wasn’t enough, Matt LaBove just hit an 18fter from the top of the key.  Timeout Seawolves.

13.38

Rufful hurting UAA’s feelings with his third 3-pointer from about 23ft out.  50-35 Dartmouth.  Game is slipping away from the Seawolves.

13.37

Two point blank misses for the Seawolves in traffic by Thompson and Fossman respectively.  UAA can’t buy a basket right now.  Loose ball foul sends Jvonte Brooks to the line.  Brooks has a double double.

13.33

Sleeper stat of the half/game:  UAA leading scorer Taylor Rohde  only has FOUR POINTS on just five attempts.  Hats off to the Dartmouth bigs for giving him trouble.

13.31

UAA soph. guard Fossman finally hit a j much to the delight of the hometown fans.  He’d missed his last six tries before that.  43-35 Dartmouth with 8 minutes left in the contest.

13.27

Freshman forward Gabas Maldunas from Lithuania showing some nifty footwork in the paint, gets 3-points the hard way with an and 1 bucket.  41-33 Big Green.

13.25

Steve White takes another charge on Dartmouth’s R.J. Griffin.  There’s got to have been at least 6 to 7 charges takes in this game so far.

13.24

Dartmouth talking more on offense than UAA is of defense at this point.  Not a good sign if your a coach for the Seawolves.

13.22

D Rufful starting to heat up from downtown…swishes his second 3-pointer of the game.  38-30 Dartmouth.

13.20

J Brooks is getting HAMMERED down low.  Refs are missing a few calls.

13.17

#Lowkey Demissie from UAA has got his kicks swag on a thousand trillion with the fresh forrest green snake print Kobe’s.  #GAMERECOGNIZEGAME

13.16

Abebe Demissie of UAA turns it over on his first offensive possession of the half, redeems himself on the next possession by swatting yet another Brooks lay up attempt.

13.14

GET THAT OUT!  Lonnie Ridgeway with the rejection on Jvonte Brooks’ transition lay up.

13.13

Jvonte Brooks is getting visibly frustrated down low.  Seawolves are making him earn everything he gets.

13.11

UAA doubling down on my man Jvonte Brooks, making it hard for him to get touches thus far.  Questionable foul call on Fossman makes Seawolf Coach Osborne flip out.

13.09

#Lowkey I’m starting to spot random people sporting Dartmouth crewnecks, hats, and other gear randomly scattered throughout the crowd.

13.08

Full timeout as the UAA cheerleaders and mascot “Spirit” try to wake the crowd up.  32-29 Dartmouth up with just under 16 minutes left in the ball game.

13.06

Loose balls flying at us in the press row.  Game getting a little sloppy…

13.03

Lonnie Ridgeway misses a 3-point attempt, no worries though as teammate Phillip Hearn cleans it up with a nice put back.

13.02

Gabas Maldunas scored the first points of the half for Dartmouth on a nice duck inside.

13.01

30 seconds till the 2nd half starts.  Tie game, wondering which team will assert themselves from the get go.  #SHOOTOUT2011

12.47

Random observation:  Highly touted UAA freshman Christian Leckband out of Nome-Beltz High is in street clothes with a cast on his right wrist/arm.

12.45

Chris Wietzel with the swat on an unnamed Dartmouth big!  Retains possession of the ball and calls a timeout with eight seconds to go in the half.  25 all!

12.44

UAA has a lot of speed on the floor for the last minute with three players 6’0″ or shorter.

12.42

UAA has revved up the defensive intensity in the last few possessions.  Forcing a lot of Dartmouth turnovers.  The crowd is still looking sleep though, despite a close and exciting game.

12.40

Chris Wietzel, the Junior transfer from Oregon just subbed into the game for UAA.

12.39

Thompson starting to heat up, just drained his third 3 of the contest.  He has about eleven.  23-21 Darmouth.

12.38

Travis Thompson for UAA.  Two words: smooth stroke!  Kid only needs a little bit of daylight to work his magic.

12.37

BIG UPS to the UAA cheerleaders for getting new uniforms!  They are definitely holding it down for the home team this afternoon.  23-15 Dartmouth with three minutes left in the half.

12.36

Dartmouth is playing exceptional D against UAA.  Making them burn up most of the shot clock on the last few possessions.  Trotter with another 3-pointer as their shot clock nearly expires.  I think he’s two for two now from deep, kid’s tough.

12.34

Jvonte Brooks is giving the Seawolves PROBLEMS in the paint.

12.32

Jabari Trotter just splashed a smooth three in the face of a UAA defender.  20-15 Darmouth.

12.31

Shout out to Abebe Demissie, a journalism major for UAA.  Just hit an impressive the hanging runner in the lane.  Looked a little like Derrick Rose on that play.

12.29

Lonnie Ridgeway with the TOUGH  runner on the baseline, could have been and and 1 IMO.  On a side note, Darmouth bigs Mat LaBove and Jvonte Brooks are getting busy on both sides of the ball.  Brooks is looking particularly nice on the low block.  He’s perfect from the field so far with eight points.  17-13 Dartmouth with just under 8 minutes to go in the first half.

12.26

Random tidbit:  UAA has three D1 transfers on their roster.  Taylor Rhode, Marcus Jackson, and Abebe Demissie. All of them are in the game now.

12.25

Dimond High connection!  The former prep teammates Colton Lauwers and Travis Thompson hook up on a nice sequence resulting in a Thompson 3-pointer.  15-11 now Dartmouth.

12.23

John Golden a freshman from Jersey hit a 3-pointer in rhythm to break the tie and give Dartmouth the lead 11-8 with about ten minutes left.  Abebe Demissie and Liam Gibcus in for the Seawolves…

12.21

David Rufful from Dartmouth has got a nice looking stroke.  Name sounds a lot like someone famous.  Haha, thought that name sounded familiar…  It’s similar to one of the former lead singers of the Temptations. http://tiny.cc/iknrg

12.18

Taylor Rhode draws a charge with the score tied at 8 points.  Lady on the baseline has to wipe up the sweat spot.

12.17

Colton Lauwers just checked in for UAA, another Alaskan and former high school teammate with Travis Thompson.  His dad is also an assistant coach on the Seawolf sideline.

12.16

Travis Thompson with the steal at mid court!  Lays it up for two.  After another steal by Taylor Rhode, a misguided outlet pass gives Dartmouth the ball back.

12.15

This game is being played inside out with both teams getting good offense from their bigs.  R.J. Griffin’s slicing lay up in traffic ties the game at 6 all with 13:53 remaining in the 1st half.

12.14

UAA has subbed in former local star Travis Thompson for his fellow Alaskan classmate Fossman, UAA also opening up with a full court press.

12.13

J Trotter with the first points for Dartmouth.  The Big Green force a turnover on the following play.  Media timeout.  4-2 UAA with 15:47 left in the 1st.

12.11

Taylor Rhode, the transfer from D1 ASU with the grown man move downlow over Dartmouth’s Gabas Maldunas.

12.10

Steve White with a nifty ducket gives the Seawolves their first basket.

12.09

The day of rest has definitely helped both clubs, they are each showing a lot of energy and effort on the defensive end.  Dartmouth has about three turnovers to open up the game.  Scoreless through the first three minutes.

12.07

Dartmouth doubling Taylor Rhode in the paint, making it hard for the Seawolves to feed him the rock early on.

12.06

Fossman taking one for the team for the Seawolves first defensive possession.  Drew a charge, UAA bench erupts as his teammates help him up.

12.05

UCI continues to hang around but are running low on time now down 68-56 with just 3:28 left to play. Rally time is now or never

22.54

Respect the ‘FRO! Michael Wilder dials up from long distance for UCI!

22.54

Whata slash to the bucket by USM’s Neil Watson! Cuts thru the whole UCI team seemingly for  a pretty two points

22.48

Hate to say it but this game has the “after Thanksgiving meal” feel to it…not a whole lot of movement and a lull has come over the crowd. Hard to blame those  Shootout faithful who have put in a full day here at the Sully

USM continues to lead 57-45 with 7:46 to play in the game

Final game on Thanksgiving has the Anteaters from UC Irvine going up against the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles. I’m Taylor Hall bringing you the Live Blog action. Here we go with the tip-off

20.46

Freethrows: NMSU 47 CMU 15.  I guess it also should be noted that CMU only has 49 points in the game.

20.44

NMSU randomly getting their transition game going now.  CMU still trying to go isolation every play.  Ziegler just checked out of the game with 2:02 left.  Score is 74-47.

20.43

Weirdo fan in the crowd yelling at McGroom to “pass the ball”.  He must not be watching the game very closely…

20.41

CMU’s woman squad finished third earlier today.  They’re in the crowd watching the men’s team.

20.39

After a 25fter from Austin McBroom and a sweet alley oop pass from him to teammate Derek Jackson, NMSU’s lead is 68-45 with just under 4 minutes to go.

20.37

Bandja Sy’s third dunkof the contest puts the Aggies up 68-41 with 5 remaining.

20.30

Eating some pumpkin pie during a media timeout…#HAPPYTHANKSGIVING #SHOOTOUT2011

20.27

Wendell McKines from NMSU is an animal on the boards!!! He just hit double figures and snagged down his tenth rebound.

20.22

NMSU is making Central work EXTRA hard for buckets tonight, the Chippewas aren’t throwing in the towel though.  Score has opened up to 56-33.  Looking a little out of reach with 9 minutes left.

20.18

Senior guard Hernst Laroche from NMSU #lowkey is having a solid game.  He’s made good on both of his ft attempts has three boards and three assists to go along with seven points.  NMSU has 54 points with no player over 10 points yet.  54-30 Aggies up with 11 to go.

20.14

And just like that Sy from NMSU gets loose on a breakaway, takes off from outside the half circle.  This guy definitely has pro potential at 6’8″ with his athletic ability, rebounding and face up game.

20.12

Bandja Sy from NMSU just missed what would have been the poster of the tournament.  Dude is really impressing me tonight.

20.09

CMU with two straight buckets.  Ziegler had a hand in both of them.  CMU trails 45-27 with 13:54 to go.

20.06

Ziegler and the rest of his CMU squad look visibly frustrated after Jevon Harden blows a dunk on a nice set up from McBroom.

20.04

Freshman guard Austin McBroom #lowkey has been a a bright spot for CMU offensively.  Kid’s listed at 6’0″, but he looks about 5’9″.

20.01

Andre Coimbra’s face up game is NOT working right now.  CMU still struggling to get quality looks.

19.59

Nobody checks Kabongo coming off of an outlet pass, drives in the lane for a nasty one handed flush.  Major miscommunication by the Chippewas. NMSU up 38-20 with 16:52 remaining.

19.56

After a steal at midcourt by CMU guard Derek Jackson, foward Olivier Mbaigto makes an and 1 basket, misses the free throw.  NMSU up 34-20 with 18 minutes left in the game.

19.38

Bandja Sy drains a 3-pointer from the left wing, with a hand in the face as the clock expires.  Sends NMSU into the half with a 34-18 advantage over Central Michigan.

19.36

We haven’t confirmed it, but there is great reason to believe that Christian Kabongo is related to Myck Kabongo the star freshman guard for Texas.

19.35

Kabongo connects on both puts NMSU up 29-18 with 36 seconds left in the half.

19.34

Kabongo with the euro step!  Earns a trip to the charity stripe for two.

19.28

Media timeout.  This game isn’t too close right now NMSU is up 24-14, but it is surprisingly exciting to watch.  3:36 left in the half.

19.24

Almost jumped out of my seat when Wendell McKines from NMSU nearly canned a reverse alley oop dunk, and 1.  #NOJOKE

19.23

Terrel de Rouen by the way is one of only two players on the NMSU roster from the state of New Mexico.  NMSU leads 22-10 with six minutes left.

19.21

And just when you thought all the momentum was gone for Central, Trey Ziegler drives baseline for a SICK poster over poor SMSU freshman Terrel de Rouen who was immediately subbed out.

19.20

Tyrone Watson’s offensive arsenal is anything but pretty, but my man still goes hard in the paint.  Dude’s been grabbing mad offensive boards for the Aggies.

19.18

Deflections, diving on loose balls, showing hard on every ball screen, everybody talking…the Aggies have got the game on LOCK in the hustle and defensive categories right now.  They’re up on Central Michigan 15-8 with just under left in the half.

19.13

Bandja Sy from NMSU is a 6’8″ junior from France.  Has pretty decent athletic ability from what he’s shown so far but more impressively has a NICE face up game.  NMSU still leads 14-5 coming up on the ten minute mark.

19.09

Random fact:  Tony Delk the former Kentucky star and 10 year NBA veteran is assistant coach for the Aggies.  #SHOOTOUT2011

19.05

Did I mention that the Aggies are playing VERY good defense against Central so far?

19.04

Central’s getting good looks…they just aren’t really running any real offense.  NMSU, on the other hand, seems to be running their sets to perfection right about now.  NMSU up 10 with 13 left in the half.

19.02

Bandja Sy  and Tshilidzi Nephawe…try saying those names three times fast.  Lol.

19.01

After a time out Central has decided to turn up their defensive intensity by about ten notches….they’re getting hammered on the boards though.  Post players Bandja Sy  and Tshilidzi Nephawe of NMSU are bangin’ downlow.  Central trailing 9-2 with about 14 to go in the first half.

18.58

Ziegler starting to force the issue offensively.  Freshman guard Austin McBroom is #lowkey playing well though.  He has there only basket.  Kid played ball with Jrue Holliday (Philly 76ers) in high school in Cali.

18.56

Ziegler just missed an easy ducket, nice backdoor move to get free though.  NMSU leading 6-2 with sixteen minutes left.

18.54

NMSU showing a soft full court press.  There defense is giving Central some problems early on.  4-2 NMSU up with 17 minutes remaining..

18.53

Low key…I’m excited to see the guard play of Central’s Trey Ziegler.  Kid had a lot of hype coming out of high school, but chose to stay in state and play for his dad.

18.50

Central Michigan and New Mexico State Fans, we are officially underway here at the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage, AK.  Leggo! #SHOOTOUT2011

And that’s it for the half! USF”s Saunders drove the length of the court but couldn’t get the roll she needed. Miami is up 44-32 at the break

17.12

Foul on USF will send Miami’s Stroman to line where she connects on both.

17.11

shot clock off, Miami has last look

17.06

Gotta say, I like the way both of these coaches handle their squads. Jose Fernandez of USF and Katie Meier of Miami. Kudos for being true teachers of the game no matter the situation on the floor

17.04

USF has the bonus while Miami has double bonus for remainder of half

17.02

36-28, Miami remains out ahead with 3:45 to play. Hurrican guard Riquna Williams is first play to double digit scoring at 10 points. Also has chipped in 3 helpers so far

16.58

A Sylvia Bullock free throw pushes Miami ahead by 5 with 6 minutes to play in half

16.54

Worth noting that Miami, the 9th ranked team nationally, unanimous favorites to repeat as ACC Champs this season. They also boast reigning ACC Player of the Year and All-American candidate Shenise Johnson. So far, she has 2 points and 4 boards

16.50

USF gets it done on both ends of court. A nice rejection by Rowe leads to fast break points for Saunders.

16.49

Leading their respective teams so far in points with 6 apiece are UM’s Shawnice Wilson and USF’s Akila McDonald

16.47

Both teams out to a fast pace. We’re knotted up 20-20 with 11 minutes to go in half.

15.47

Here we go, final possesion!

15.46

10 seconds left, UAA gets ball to half court and calls their final timeout! Nothing like a bit of drama here at the Shootout!

15.41

UAA needs to work the clock now

15.40

Huge bucket for UAA. Who else but Robison! That puts her at 20 points in the game! Player of the Game if the Seawolves hold on for the win?

15.39

CMU within 2 points! with 2 minutes to go! We’re going to go down to the wire!

15.37

CMU into the full court press and it has led to two UAA turnovers and two CMU buckets in response! 68-83 with 3:07 to play!

15.36

Bradford drive lane as is able to draw foul on Robison. Robison sits at 4 fouls now, one more will be the end of her game.

15.35

Scary stuff here as Spirit the Seawolf nearly takes a few of us on media row out on a tricycle. Game coverage will go on despite the experience!

15.32

UAA’s Alysa Horn fouls out on what we’ll call a questionable blocking foul. Tough luck for the Kodiak native.

15.30

Fantastic effort from CMU! They took down 3 straight offensive rebounds but could not get anything to fall

15.00

Here we go with the 2nd half!

14.44

14.24

Still waiting for the games first 3-pointer. Both teams struggling. UAA 0-4, CMU 0-5 thus far

14.22

14.19

UAA takes their first lead of the game, 15-14 with 11:20 to play in first half

Hello everyone! Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to Day 2 here at the Great AK Shootout! I’m Taylor Hall and i’ll host the liveblog for the first game on turkey day featuring the CMU Chippewas against the UAA Seawolves! 5 minutes before tip-off!

23.14

TH: That’s a wrap for us from Day 1 of the Shootout. Early Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and see you tomorrow!

23.07

TH: USF successfully inbounds and avoids the Dartmouth foul! That’s all she wrote, 71-69 is your final! USF will move on to play Murray State. DU has a date with UAA after the loss

23.05

Say a prayer Dartmouth fans.  71-69 with 4 tics left in the ballgame.  USF inbound.

23.05

TH: Trotter only hits one from charity stripe, USF to inbound with 4.7 seconds left and 2 point lead

23.04

Heady play from reserve Avery Johnson of USF, sending Jabari Trotter to the line instead of letting him set up for a three.  Trotter misses the first, Dartmouth down 3 with 4 seconds left.

23.04

TH: Smart foul by USF, Dartmouth goes to line to shoot 2, down by 3

23.03

TH: 71-68 USF now with 4.7 seconds to go

23.02

TH: Finally DU can’t get one to drop from three point land

 

23.02

TH: Williams hits 1 of 2 from line. USF lead back to 2

 

23.01

TH: Another 3 pointer for Dartmouth! Rufful again! 69-68!

23.01

DARTMOUTH WON’T GO AWAY!!!

23.00

DP:

USF’s about to mess around and lose this game…UPSET CITY!!! Wait a second, Michael Williams from USF back at the line for two.

22.59

TH: Both teams in the double bonus from here on out

22.59

TH: There’s your boy again Demietrius, R.J. Griffin resurfaces and hits a 3 to pull Dartmouth with just three points. It’s 68-65 with 42.7 seconds showing on the clock

22.57

Nothing against Dartmouth, but I kinda like the idea of Michael Williams from USF matching up with Isaiah Canaan of Murray State tomorrow…

22.56

And just like that Dartmouth’s back in it after a Mack McKearney 3-pointer.  The lefty hasn’t made a bucket all night, but hit when it mattered.  66-62 USF with 52 seconds left!

22.53

DP:

Dartmouth randomly utilizing the Kentucky dribble drive offense in their last possession, but with no success as Rufful’s lay in falls short.  Dartmouth down 7 with 1:08 left in the ball game.  This one may be out of reach unless Rufful or somebody else gets hot.

22.52

TH: 3 players from each team in the double digits scoring on the night. USF Michael Williams leads all with 21 points so far

22.51

DP:

Fourth and final game of the night.  It’s almost 11 o’ clock, so despite this close game, most of the fans have called it a night.  That isn’t stopping the Dartmouth cheer section though!  What’s this?  Darmouth forcing a turnover out of a timeout?! #SHOOTOUT2011

22.49

TH: USF up 65-59, let’s see if they can put this one out of reach or if Dartmouth will stick around a bit more

22.48

Just under 3 ticks left and USF’s backcourt is starting to heat up!  Dartmouth won’t go away though.  Showing a lot of resilience.  USF up 65-59.

22.45

TH: Things are gonna get interesting here in the nightcap game!

22.44

DP: David Rufful from Dartmout hits a miracle 3-pointer as the shot clock expires to pull within one.  Ensuing possession Angelo Caloiaro from USF hits a hanging runner in the lane, and 1.  61-57 USF with 4:23 left in the game.

22.41

J’Vonte Brooks is a 6’6″ freshman from Santee, CA for Dartmouth.  Dude is randomly getting in the lane at will and either getting buckets, trips to the line or both.  I bet USF is thinking where did this kid come from.  Dartmouth within 2.  56-54 with 5:21 left.

22.37

TH: Dartmouth keeps hanging around though, back within 4 with 6:20 to play

22.34

Dartmouth can’t seem to get anything going at this point.  My man R.J. Griffin has fallen asleep on offense, and luckily for USF, they don’t have another guy that can create.

22.30

For a little guy  Michael Williams sure isn’t afraid to go in a snag some boards. He’s got some bounce. Oh wait, Williams just hit ANOTHER 3 from about 25ft out.  USF leads 52-44 with just under 9 ticks left.

22.27

TH: For anyone interested, game action tomorrow on Thanksgiving includes UAA Women vs Central MIchigan at 2pm playing for 3rd Place, Miami vs South Florida at 4pm for the Women’s Championship.

6’8″ Dartmouth freshman Gabas Maldunas from Lithuania has connected on two consecutive 18 footers.  Kid’s got a nice mid range game.  Needs some more touches though.  Dartmouth down 2. 42-40 with 11:12 left.

22.19

Backcourt duo Michael Williams and Dominique O’Connor from USF are reminding me a bit of  Steve Francis Cuttino Mobley out here.  37-34 USF still leads with just under 14 remaining.

DP:

R.J. Grififin just told USF that class in in session with another nice drive. 32-33 USF with 15:45 to go.

22.13

R.J. Grifiin scores the first bucket for Dartmouth on a slicing drive through the lane.  He has 10 points.  David Rufful just drilled a three, then hit a smooth reverse lay in. USF fails to convert another point blank lay up.  Dartmouth closing the gap 33-30 USF.  17 minutes left.

DP: Celeb Resemblance:  Doesn’t Michael Williams from USF kind of look like a weird cross between DJ Augustin and Brandon Jennings?  You be the judge!   http://tiny.cc/bm5pk

21.54

The hoop is starting to look a lot bigger for USF’s Michael Williams who just drained his second 3-pointer of the half from about five feet off the line. 23-21 USF with 1:19 left.

21.49

Fun fact:  All players on the floor are wearing Nike sneakers except for 6’4″ USF guard Rashad Green who is wearing green Jordan Spizikes.  Rashad just completed an old fashioned 3-point play.  USF trails 21-20, 2:06 left in the 1st.

21.46

R.J. Griffin was looking lost, but hit a timely prayer from just above half court with the shot clock remaining.  Teammate David Rufful makes good on another deep three on the ensuing possession.  21-15 Dartmouth.

21.44

Junior guard Michael Williams has scored USF’s last 5 points.   Ties the game at 15 all after a deep 3-pointer and two made free throws.  Just under 4 minutes to go in the 1st.

DP: Nothing like the smell of corn fritters and chicken strips in the Sullivan Arena!  #SHOOTOUT2011 Dartmouth extending their lead 15-8 with 6 minutes remaining in the first.

21.35

DP: Been hearing a lot about Junior Pg Dominque O’Connor.  Kid had a lot of hype coming out of high school.  He’s been battling through injuries his first two seasons, but he’s been showing a few flashes of brilliance so far.  Despite this, USF trails Dartmouth 6-13 with 7:16 left in the 1st half.
