TOC: Friday Night Update (#2)


GAME 2 : Atlanta Celtics vs. Baltimore Stars

The next game we checked out was...you guessed it, Ryan Harrow and the Atlanta Celtics. First off we'd like to give some props to Wolfpack Nation. You guys showed up repping your red and white, and you could tell Ryan was excited to see it.

Overall Ryan played well. The game was played at an unusually fast pace that did not suit Ryan's game. Not that Ryan isn't good on the break, cause he can be downright magical on a 2 on 1, but it was the fact that the game seemed to be too fast pace to even bother getting the ball to a point guard. It was run and gun all night for the Celtics as Centers and Power Forwards were doing their best point guard impressions, making for a very ugly showing. When Ryan did get the ball in his hands, good things usually followed. He wowed the crowd with a few jaw dropping crossovers followed by his feathery pull up and gave his team momentum with his passing on the break. He, numerous times, threw pinpoint no look passes that found their way through the tightest of gaps. The game was cut short because the Celtics put the mercy rule on them. (Up by more than 20 with 4 minutes to play). Ryan ended up with 16 points, 5 assists and 2 steals.

Ryan is in action again tomorrow at 12:15 at Reynolds, come out and show him some support. And yes, we do have video and will be getting it to you shortly...stay tuned.

    By the way, no charge for the games we went to. Programs and snacks are the only thing you had to pay for.

    I am so freaking excited about Ryan Harrow. The Pack has not had this type of point guard since...well, you know how long it's been. No more wondering when State will have another great PG...it's 2010! The future of Wolfpack basketball is EXTREMELY bright! Thanks for your work WH!!!

    It was impressive how much athleticism the Celtics had over the Stars. I was watching Harrow, but Golden (23) and McRae (1) both really stood out to me.

    You can really see what Sid likes in Harrow. He just plays so smart on both ends. He already looked like a college player.

    Oh, the signs on the doors said $5 day/$10 for the weekend. They give you a "Paid" stamp.
