GAME BALLS: AMES, LUNN, MAEPA
Mike Ames continued his nice January by hitting on 4 of 5 three pointers in a 22 point night. Mike added 2 assists and a steal when he played a more manageable 33 minutes. 8 of 13 from the field on a good night by him.
David Lunn returned from a game off due to illness and boy was it evident that we missed him versus UNCW on the defensive end. David had a nice 6 points, 2 assists, and 4 steals in 35 minutes to help hold GMU 28 points on 40% shooting in the second half.
Lebo Maepa came out of the woodwork to provide good minutes while Nana is out. And he delivered a very nice effort. Lebo was 4 of 5 from the floor with 6 boards and 9 points in only 16 minutes on the hardwood.
ATTA GUYS: SLATTERY, COURTNEY, OLAWOYE
Slatts again kept the offense in gear and played another good night at both ends of the court. Mike ended with 9 points, 8 assists, 3 steals and just another Mike Slattery night.
Courtney continued his progress of becoming one of UD's future leaders. Herb is a very sound player in his technique. This night he scored 9 points, had 2 steals, and 3 rebounds and continues to keep his composure and has already proved to me he belongs on the court at crunch time.
Henry continues to impress as well. Henry snared 5 boards to match his 5 points in 13 very respectable minutes of play. Something special about this guy that I like.
This team has now won 4 of their last six and is really looking like they are beginning to get in synch. Let's hope they can steal some of these upcoming road games and continue to protect the home hardwood.
Touche to the home crowd last night too. A pretty good turnout on a night where many could have chosen to stay home in their jammies. Or they could have stayed out in the front parking lot to do some ice skating.
