Wright Unable To Keep Season Alive
March 13, 2014
Garland Offsets Wright And Explorers Lose Game They Could Have Won.
The end of the season has arrived for the Explorers (15-16) as they allowed the
Saint Bonaventure Bonnies to dominate the paint (17-14).
The season-long disappointment from Tyrone Garland hit a new
low today as he
went 0 for 7 for 0 points to close out his college career. Jerrell Wright (26
points on 11 for 13, 9 boards) was dominant on the offensive end but didn't get
Explorers trailed at the break 42-34.
The Explorers battled in the second half to close within a single point but then
allowed the Bonnies to steal back the momentum. Steve Zack (11
points, 11 boards and 1 block)
soft at times
on defense but had a good game overall. Sam
Mills (10 points)
played well at times. Tyreek
Duren (15 points, 4 assists) didn't get the benefit of a few key foul
calls including one where he was erroneoulsy called for an offensive foul. Duren
is a definite future Big 5 Hall of Famer and his presence will be missed next
The season was a complete disappointment. Duren's injury to start the season
which was mis-diagnosed by a physician hurt the most. Garland's inability to
shoot effectively really hurt the team more then anything else. Mills had his
mid-season struggles and DJ Peterson and Khalid Lewis disappeared offensively
large stretches. The most improved players were Jerrell Wright and Steve Zack.
Tyreek Duren was the MVP of the season for La Salle (10 games), followed closely
by Jerrell Wright (9 games). Zack had 6 games. Garland had 3 games. Mills had
Saint Bonaventure 82, La Salle 72 FINAL.
Explorer Top Performer of
Game: Jerrell Wright.
LaSalle shot 54%
from the field on 26 for 48 (28% from beyond the arc on 5 for 18) and 68%
from the foul line (15 for 22). Coach John Giannini still
has not learned how to handle idiot officials who allowed heavy contact on
Wright and Zack without a whistle in the first half. He needed to pick up
a technical to set the tone. Instead the Bonnies continued the heavy contact
in the second half by hitting and pushing Garland without a whistle.
Coaching Grade: D
Anderson, Alvin Cox, Paul Faia.
Grade for Officials:
D (Below Average): This crew
was totally unprofessional. They allowed the Bonnies to get away with hard
contact. Jerrell had to leave the game and Steve was hurting after being
hit. This set the tone for the entire game as Coach G did not go onto the
court to make his point. The A10 needs to get rid of Cox and Faia as I wouldn't
even let them officiate a Division 3 game.
