ASA 4 vs Boston Warriors: Win 27-25
Player of the Game:
SJ was an all around leader against the Boston warriors this Sunday. He helped his team defensively, on the boards, and as a vocal leader. When I called for half court man to man, SJ was right at halfcourt waiting for his man, hungry to play defense. He always knew who to guard even in transition. To add on to his stellar defensive play, he hit a deep jumper, got an Offensive board followed by a put back layup over his man, and had a nice assist to Finn Hayes for a go ahead bucket at a crucial point in the second half. He was unselfish, and left everything on the floor. I couldn't ask for more as a coach.
ASA 10 vs MA Crusaders Win 32-28
After a hard faught battle ASA 10 took home their first victory of the season defeating Mass Crusaders by a score of 32-28. ASA battled back from 11 down at half time to take home the W. Coming out of the second half strong and playing together as a group they were able to take advantage of open space and knock down outside jump shots. While they're full court pressure controlled the pace.
Player of the Game: Paul Szulc
Paul sparked the defensive activity of the game extending his hands up and picking off passes leading to fast break opportunities. He also moved well without the ball, finding open space and knocking down open jumpers. While his jump shot chipped at the deficit it was his penetration that opened lanes up for his team mates getting everyone involved.
ASA 7th White vs Boston Warriors- Win 41-22
ASA 7th White came out of the gate strong earning an 11 point lead going into halftime. Their constant full court pressure and fantastic defensive rotation were able to take advantage of the passing lanes and score often in transition. When they were slowed down they used over play to their advantage and converted on numerous back door cuts.
Player Of The Game: Daylon Trotman
Daylon lead the way on the defensive end stepping into passing lanes and playing hard nosed defense picking opponents pockets on multiple occasions and finishing in transition both left handed and right handed. He also saw the floor well from the point guard position hitting his teammates in open space.
