Great Win

Good afternoon everyone! Friday night we played against Limoges and we came away with a 87-73 victory. Limoges has the top scorer in the league and they are capable of winning any game they play so it was nice to get a home win. Limoges played zone defense the entire game. They actually played a Box-in-one on me. A box-in-one is when they have a player face guard me everywhere I go on the court and deny me the ball. Basically its a defense to try and keep the ball out of my hands as much as possible. I must admit I would have never thought that a professional team would play box-in-one, usually you see that type of defense at the high school level. But, in the end it worked out best for us and we got a great win. We had 3 guys score in double figures. Juby Johnson had a great game with 24 points. Yannick and Cyril chipped in with 19 points and 12 points. I had 9 points (2-6 2FG, 1-5 3FG, 2-2 FT), 6 assists, 4 rebounds, and 1 turnover. Overall it was a great win for us and it puts us at 10-5 in the league now and currently still in 5th place.

We have a EuroChallenge game coming up on Tuesday in Portugal and then a French League game on the road in Cholet. It will be another big week for us and as always looking forward to playing a couple games a week! Hope everyone is doing well back home, we are thinking about you all! God Bless (Joshua 1:9)

  4. Ben,

    You would have been proud of the Bison this past saturday night with a double OT win over UMKC. Down 1 pt with 2.7 sec left, Carlson inbounds with a back door alley oop to Tweidt for the win. Check out the NDSU Basketball web site for the video.
