CCU Ambassadors (67) v. Prodigies (68)
This was one our best games of the day! The CCU Ambassadors and Prodigies were severely shorthanded! Both of the teams were minus their leading scorers! Jeremy Lee of the CCU Ambassadors and Sean Caiola of the Prodigies! Which supporting cast will make the difference?
The CCU Ambassadors were led in this game by the “others”! Malcolm’s double-double (29pts & 11rebs) and Steve’s great shooting (6-8 3pt range 75%) led the depleted CCU team! They were able to shoot 24-53 fgs (45%) including 13-30 from deep (43%)! CCU, after a slow start, came up big in the 2nd quarter our scoring the Prodigies, 21-14! The Ambassadors gave their all for the cause but they were down at the half, 33-31!
The Prodigies really turned it on in the 3rd quarter! Their stifling defense forced CCU to shoot 36% in the quarter. Only allowing them to 1-6 (17%) from deep! Captain Torrent Lee came through with a couple of 3’s in the third (finished w/ 12pts) and Q w/ the strong first half ended up with a team high, 18pts on 7-12 fgs (58%).
CCU was down but not yet out! Down 50-41 entering the final period CCU made a comeback! Led by Malcolm’s 12pts and Steve’s 10pts in the quarter! But the strong finish by Ryan Sustano (6pts in 4th) and two trips to the line from Q were just enough to squeak past CCU, 68-67!
