TOC: Saturday Afternoon Update


CP3 vs. Illinois Wolves
We were on location in Reynolds and working with wi-fi for the first game and got to check out Dezmine Wells and CP3. Wells looks good so far. He's a smart player with very good size. He just got called for a charge as he took a pass in the lane, power dribbled and steamrolled the kid guarding him. He has good footwork on defense and knows what to do with the rock when it's in his hands. He's got 3 points, one board and a few assists.

Atlanta Celtics vs Mid-State
Ryan Harrow's first time playing on the NC State campus was a success. Harrow and company man handled their opponent and Ryan gave the NC State fans exactly what they were looking for. It was vintage Harrow as he came out of the gates with a quick 3 and an acrobatic lay. Sporting an Iverson-esque crossover, Ryan was able to free himself at will leading to the creation of a lot of opening for his teammates and few a highlight reel slams. One of which was an off the glass one handed tomahawk. The State fans came out and droves and showed the love, as all of Ryan's highlights brought a loud applause and you could feel the excitement and anticipation in the arena. Ryan ended with 15 points and 6 assists as the Celtics won their second straight game by way of the slaughter rule (up 20 with 4 minutes to play; game ends) "It was great to get out here in front of all the NC State fans for the first time, I really appreciate all the support." Harrow said with a smile.

Stay tuned as right now we're taking in the Atlanta Celtics vs. Memphis Stallions game and Ryan has already been wowing the crowd with a few highlights.

    I just got back from Reynolds and I was really impressed with Ryan. If I could sum up his game in one word it would be "smooth." I wish he had touched the ball more, but he still played well. He ended the game with an off the backboard dunk that sent the Wolfpack fans off the right way. If this had been any other occasion I really would not have liked the showboating, but since it was a game that was clearly out of hand and Ryan wanted to show the Wolfpack fans a little something for coming out, I had no problem with it. Go STATE! BTW the MERCY rule was used in this one, as it ended like 70-40 or something crazy like that.

    ***Last but not least, for any of you who haven't seen Ryan yet, kid has hops. You really don't anticipate it when you see him, cuz he is so small, but the kid can fly.

    ..just got back from the venerable Reynolds. All I have to say is that Ryan is the real deal and everything WPH has shed light upon him is spot on. His athleticism and court vision is incredible. He is always looking to attack but he does it wisely and lets the game come to him which results in positive possessions in bunches for his team.

    Very importantly was that meeting Ryan's mom in person and his sister and niece was a complete pleasure. Friendly and good people for sure (Ryans' niece is about the same age as my four yo girl and she is cute as a button and was focused on the ball game throughout).

    Also, WPH was of course in the house and to my surprise there were only two of them! I told them that with what they are producing on this site (and Pigskin to boot) there had to be some clones of them out and about gathering knowledge...not so. They are busting their tales off and doing it the old Smith & Barney way .."They're earrrrrrrrrning it!"

    Please anyone and everyone show your support for what these fellas are working hard to achieve. Go Atlanta Celtics and Go Pack!
