Four-Point Play: Judson

Milwaukee stomped Judson last night, 89-56, in a game that was more a chance to get the team confident than anything else. Four points to take away from last night’s match-up:

– Judson was an inferior team in every facet of the game. The 33-point victory was not impressive due to this, but the fact of the matter is that last year the Panthers struggled with lower division teams that were coming off bad seasons. Judson is one of those teams. The take-away is that they didn’t succumb to poor shooting, kept hitting it down low, and played their game.

– At times, Kyle Kelm looked like Wilt Chamberlain out there. It was a man among boys and pretty much every player on Milwaukee would be a star for the Eagles, including Quinton Gustavson.  Speaking of Q, if his last layup had been a dunk, the place may have exploded. Q? Scoring? A dunk? The fourth dunk to get us all chips and queso?

– Don’t look now, but Austin Arians has become far more of an offensive threat than he was a season ago. Last year he was a spot shooter. This year, he has added the ability to drive on the dribble, a bevy of post moves, and a knack for cutting to the basket that we haven’t seen since junior James Haarsma.

– Got to sit courtside and I can see why David and Lori Nicholas and company sit down there. It’s fantastic, a much different experience than behind the media table. The crowd was sparse and polite, but what else can you expect two days before Thanksgivikkah?  Should be a much livelier crowd next Tuesday when the Panthers host the Panthers.
