Arkansas Pine Bluff Recap

[ We are going to have to miss Wednesday's game vs. Detroit at Reed Arena (7:00) if anyone wants to buy our tickets – please let me know. ]

Hey guys – Was out of town over the weekend and I only got a chance to watch the first little bit of the Aggies game on Sunday afternoon on the DVR. I did see that they put a pretty impressive defensive lockdown on Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The good guys prevailed by a final score of 64-37 in a game in which they actually got out to an 18-0 lead with just over 10 minutes left to play in the first half.

I am hoping to be able to watch the rest of the game tonight or tomorrow at some point.

One thing that stood out from the box score was that the Aggies did manage to post another atrocious number from the free-throw line in going 6-of-16 ( 37.5%) and at some point, you and I both know that it is going to cost them a game that they should have otherwise won. On the season, the Aggies are a putrid 147-for-254 (57.9%) from the free throw line. HORRIBLE!

Josh Carter (16 points – 4 rebounds) and Derrick Roland (12 points – 4 rebounds) led the Aggie charge on Sunday afternoon. Bryan Davis (7 points – 9 rebounds) also had a very productive day, making the most of his 16 minutes off the bench.

Here are a few links from Sunday's win:

Carry on.
