9-7 Stags; 14:55 in the 1st

  • Media break - cause I'm tired already.
  • Wide-open lay-in for Caleb Holmes.... oh, wait. Jon Han sprint down the court, and knocks the ball out of bounds. They always say on the courts back home, "No easy buckets." Han just proved it.
  • Ross Moiron shows some poise in the post and puts up a great shot on Peanut.
  • Alex Zampier, with Han in his face and the shot clock at 3, buries a three from the top of the arc. Sweet shot, sweeter look, sweetest uniforms for Yale. 9-5 Stags.
  • After back-to-back misses from both sides, Nero gets the ball down low and misses. Stags show some effort and go afte rthe board - but it gets knocked out of bounds. Yale ball.
  • Yorel Hawkins buries a three-pointer on a great kick-out. Nothin' but net. 9-2 Stags.
  • Ross Morin hits a pretty, throwback hook shot. Keith Connors.. I mean, Hakeem Olajuwon style. Sweet. 6-2 FU.
  • Half-court trap from the Stags - with Peanut Johnson in the frontcourt putting the pressure. Looks as if they want to push the tempo against a Yale team that does not look as athletic.
  • Edney sinks the shot. 6-0 FU.
  • Edney gets a lay-in role, with the "and one". Matt Kyle gets called on the foul for the Blushirts. Edney to the line for the three-point play.
  • Bulldogs put on a full court press.
  • "This is our house!" chant as the Stags get Yale to turn it over again with an offensive foul.
  • With the shot clock ticking down, Stags' forward Warren Edney shows some range by nailing a three a few steps behind the line. Noice (that's Cali talk for 'nice'). 3-0 Stags.
  • Yale gets the tip on a loose ball off FU that goes out, but Yale gives it right back with an offensive foul in the pain.
  • Just in time for tip, my laptop gets service and the game is underway. Relatively small Red Sea for an Alumni Hall game, but it's starting to fill in nicely.
