Wheeling Jesuit vs. TU men
November 27, 2011 - Zach Baker
Wheeling Jesuit leads 8-6 with 17:25 left in first half. Jesuit is bringing ball pressure, and rushing down the floor. So far, TU hasn't adjusted yet, and it's led to layups. Obi Okwuoma is ripping up TU right now. 13-8 at 16:20.
Karl Finley erupts, draining a 3 then beating the Cardinals down the court for a few layups. TU now leads, 15-13, with two to come fom the foul line. 14:42 remains.
Cardinals lead, 24-20 at 9:27 mark. Pretty even all around, though Graessle has gone 0-for on shots. That will have to change for Tiffin to win. At the 8:17 mark, it's 27-22.
Aside from Finley, no one is hitting from the outside. But you just can't expect the shooters to pass up shots. 52 seconds left in half, Wheeling Jesuit leads, 41-33.
Wheeling leads by seven.TU offense got it going late in first half.
Media timeout, 14:39 left. TU trails, 54-46. TU still is struggling with outside shot after going 2-13 in first half from 3
TU trails, 80-73. 3:06 left. Finley is single-handedly keeping his team sort of in this with 28 points. TU's getting killed right now on the offensive glass, but TU isn't making much from outside. Cardinals are being led by Steve Catich, who has hit a number of treys. He has 20 points. Barlow also missed two key free throws a couple minutes ago.
It just fell apart for TU down the stretch. Nobody making baskets, foul shots or rebounds. It's 91-76, 55 seconds.
