18-15 at the first media break. Both teams on fire.
23-15 Coogs with 11:19 to go in the half.
Van Beck stays on fire with 10 points already
44-30 Coogs at the half. Some sloppy play, some good defense and the Coogs finally woke up. Van Beck, Both Davises and White look good. Galen’s taken 2 charges.
Brady may be in the doghouse though. Didn’t get a lot of playing time and they brought in Sangoyomi at the end of the half.
The low FT% has me very concerned for the tough games ahead this season.
Free throw shooting is ugly.
Pulling away though. 63-38 with 11:57 left.
Corey Davis having a great all-around game.
Brady hasn’t played at all this half; maybe banged up. 3 man rotation down low with Davis, Zanna and White.
77-44 with 7:40 to go.
5 Coogs in double figures.
Defense has been impressive this half.
Almost creepy good. IW is looking like a pickup team for the last 7 minutes or so. They can’t score, coogs stealing balls left and right, blocking shots, lots of fast break points.
93-55 with 2:03 to go.
6 Coogs in double figures now as Brooks just banked in a 3 (don’t think he called it).
