GW @ Auburn (men), 1st half

HALFTIME
GW leads, 44-29. More of the same -- slow rotations on defense and meandering play on offense. Barber was called for a pair of offensive fouls late in the half. He now has three fouls. I'll get stats when they come available.

FOURTH TO @ 3:43:
GW leads, 39-29. The Colonials are still getting open looks outside -- even after the Tigers switched to man-to-man. Auburn's offense is impatient right now. I don't sense a real plan.

THIRD TO @ 7:45:
GW leads, 33-23. Auburn is slow on defensive rotations along the perimeter. GW passes the ball in, then out. As the Tigers' zone collapses toward that inside player, the outside guy goes free and he cashes from outside. The Colonials have hit six 3-pointers in the last six minutes.

SECOND TO @ 12:07:
Game tied at 20. Auburn has scored on six of its seven possessions since the last timeout. The Tigers are getting good looks from the perimeter and they're hitting them. Auburn's sticking with the zone, but Frankie Sullivan and Reed have been slow on some rotations. They're leaving shooters open. GW hit three 3-pointers during that segment.

FIRST TO @ 15:33:
GW leads, 11-9. Auburn was remarkably sloppy initially, committing silly turnovers and letting GW run basic plays for easy baskets. Barber can't create his own shot. Auburn's zone played more intelligently and started causing more problems.

This is among the most sparce crowds I've seen in a while. I'd estimate attendance at 1,000 or so.

Auburn's starting lineup:
PF/C -- Korvotney Barber
G/F -- Lucas Hargrove
G/F -- Tay Waller
SG -- Dewayne Reed
PG -- Tez Robertson

Arena looks full. Can't believe they packed all 8 fans in.

That's weird, Cory. I just told Mr. S there were "8" people at the game. LOL

1:08 PM  
Blogger Mr. Sensible said...

Totally unrelated but UT is whipping Vandy right now

1:11 PM  
Blogger Cory said...

I like how you think Monica!

1:11 PM

How sloppy is this basketball game? Goodness gracious.

1:12 PM  
Blogger Cory said...

Frankie isn't afraid to come in and fire away. I like that.

1:15 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Sullivan works hard on defense.

1:16 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Dang - this hijacked video coverage made me miss that good defensive effort!

Tigers are looking better!

1:22 PM  
Blogger Cory said...

How was that a charge on Tez?

1:23 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Tez didn't argue the call very ardently.

1:25 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

That sullivan kid looks pretty good, as does that lett guy. Hopefully they'll cut into reed and hargrove's minutes as the season goes on.

1:27 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

That was ugly.

1:27 PM  
Blogger Cory said...

Seems to be getting away from us now. We need to make a run.

1:31 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

they can't keep shooting like that

1:31 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Might be time to get away from the zone?

1:32 PM  
Blogger Monica said...

Did anyone see that Sanzenbaucher catch for OSU?

1:32 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Auburn back to man defense.

About time!

1:35 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

man to man... good call... time for them to cool off. Question is will we continue to make some shots?

1:35 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

there's our boy dewayne reed... same as last year.

1:38 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

waller likes to shoot huh?

1:39 PM  
Blogger Cory said...

Does Dewayne Reed actually practice finishing once he gets to the basket?

1:40 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Tay was brought here to shoot shoot shoot.

1:40 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Reed ... not refined on offense at all. He hustles, though. Gotta give him that.

1:42 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

reed would be useful coming off the bench, but he plays way too much.

1:45 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Yep. Exactly.

1:45 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Sullivan will get those minutes eventually.

1:45 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

If anyone cares, WVU is doing to Louisville in the second half the same thing they did to Auburn 35 to 14 with about 8 minutes.

1:48 PM  
Blogger Cory said...

Pretty bad 1st half there...

1:49 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

My hubby and father in law are 2 of the 8 there. You should say hey to them, Jay. ;-)

Looks like you were right about Tenn and Vandy.

1:50 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

with sullivan and waller in there at the same time that could give Auburn something they haven't had in two years... a threat from the 3 point line that's not our tallest player on the floor in quan prowell.

1:50 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Awful first half for Auburn.

Scale of 1-10: 2.

1:51 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

And as soon as I type that....Vandy with a pick-6.

1:51 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

THe tuition shooters should have to pay double they are that bad.

1:53 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

yeah i'm thinking that game ended in a 0-0 tie

1:55 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

This channel surfing dot net is pretty cool. It is amazing what you find here at the HABOTN

1:58 PM  
Blogger Cory said...

Maybe Lebo can do the unthinkable and make adjustments at halftime.

1:58 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

It would help if he had a majority of the players that already had a command of the fundementals so his job of making adjustments would not be so monumental.

2:01 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

call it basketball savvy if you like, but it is something that I haven't seen alot of on the Plains as of late.

2:03 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Second half thread is UP.
