TOC: Late Saturday Afternoon Update


ATLANTA CELTICS vs. MEMPHIS STALLIONS
Easily the best game we've seen so far this tournament. Ryan Harrow and company took care of one of the more dangerous teams in their pool in what was a back and forth, run and gun, scoring-fest. Now, we've seen quite a bit of Ryan, probably just as much or more than anyone else, and I can say without a doubt that this was certainly the best we've seen. If there was a question on whether or not Ryan was worthy of that 5th star, I think the question has been answered. A scout in attendance told us that outside of Brandon Knight (#1 PG in 2010), he didn't think that there was a better point guard out there in the class of 2010. What may have seemed like a bold statement at the beginning of the game, didn't seem so far fetched afterward. Filthy crossovers, violent spin moves, no look behind the back passes, and insanely acrobatic finishes, and that's just a small taste of what Harrow had to offer against the Stallions. When pressed for a bucket, it was Ryan who answered, and although he was called for a questionable technical foul for staring down a player after an unbelievable assist, he was calm, cool and collected throughout. Ryan finished with 32 points and a slew of unbelievable assists. (We'll have the official totals later), and a gigantic win for the Celtics that sent them to the playoffs that starts tonight at 10pm at the Dean Dome.



RICHMOND SQUIRES vs GRASSROOTS CANADA
This was our second time catching Mychal Parker live and unfortunately it was not the best game to catch. Now don't get us wrong, Parker is a big time talent but he was running with a team that wasn't very competitive. Parker, while a little thinner than expected, played strong and showcased a nice mid-range game. He plays bigger than his 6'6 listed height, and had nice touch (although wasn't connecting tonight). The Squires didn't utilize Parker correctly and he found himself working the post for position while his team continually took poor shots and ended up getting slaughtered by a team that played together and had loads of D-1 talent (a 5 star and 2 guys on their way to Texas.) Overall we like Mychal's game and got to catch up with him after the game. We'll give you the run down of what he said later, however, we will tell you that he had a lot of good things to say about the Wolfpack. Parker had 13 at halftime and unofficially ended with 16 in a game that was cut short due to mercy rule.

    Would it be possible to put a date on these posts, not just a time? Often there is no way to tell exactly when the posts were made.

    ^ The setting is on "Date and Time" and we keep trying to do that, but it's something in the HTML of our site (which is not our specialty)...we'll try to get that fixed.

    For the meantime we'll try to write the date at the bottom of our posts, which we were doing, but sometimes we forget.

    We'd also like to let everyone that we met this weekend that it was a pleasure to finally meet a lot of you. It's always good to meet State fans that appreciate our vision and our goals. I also will say that this weekend has just reaffirmed my belief that NC State has the most loyal and hardcore fans in the ACC (if not the country!) as we've seen a whole lot of Red and White at the event.

    Also Ryan's mother and Ryan himself were very happy to see all the Red in the stands! Good work Wolfpack Nation!
