UC 31, Maryland 18 (half) thoughts

| No TrackBacks
Starting lineup: Deonta Vaughn, Rashad Bishop, Cashmere Wright, Lance Stephenson and Yancy Gates.

On the first offensive play, Gates with an offensive rebound. Then, Vaughn feeds him a nice bounce pass and he slams it home.

You know how bad Wright was yesterday when driving to the lane and taking shots? Well, he just drove the lane, passed it back outside, the ball got moved to Stephenson, who nailed a 3.

Wright picks up his second foul with about 14 minutes to go. Yesterday, it was Vaughn in early foul trouble. What is it with the guards in Hawaii?

Man, Maryland's defense is just swarming.

Lot of turnovers this season from Darnell Wilks on his passes. He might want to consider taking some heat off of them.

UC has manages just one field goal in about 7 1/2 minutes. Still, Vaughn retakes the lead with a 3-pointer.

Padgett gives UC a taste of its own medicine. He rebounds a miss and slams it home.

UC 16, Maryland 14 (7:29 to go)

Vaughn hits a 3 in transition to put UC up by five. He's got eight points so far.

I don't remember, though, the last time the Bearcats tried to get the ball to Gates in the post.

Not like it matters. Maryland is brutal on offense so far. The Terps have gone 6 minutes without scoring, allowing UC to go on a 14-0 run.

Toyloy misses a dunk. That makes one for him this year to go with Gates' and Stephenson's missed jams.

Toyloy starting to make an impact as Gates takes a breather.

Wow, I was about to write: UC called a timeout with 35 seconds left to run that non-play and to get that terrible shot from Stephenson. Instead, I'll write: Wow, great play by Dixon to take the air-ball from Stephenson and throw it in as time expired on the half.

Vaughn leads the way with 10 points. Stephenson has eight. Maryland is shooting 28 percent from the floor and 11 percent from the 3. Another strong defensive effort from the Bearcats so far.
