Results from nights 4 and 5 of the Challenge. Sorry for the delay on night 4. Yesterday was a bit crazy at work:
Lincoln Memorial 59, San Francisco St. 53
Coach mmd1821 and Lincoln Memorial used a slow, deliberate approach to this game, running what can only be described as the Princeton offense at its finest, on the way to 51.4% shooting from the field and a 59-53 win overcoach platoisek and San Francisco St. Lincoln Memorials backcourt duo of Charles White and Randall Jones and do-everything swingmanf Arron Sturgill at the SF combined to score 37 of their team's points and had 8 assists to just 4 turnovers between them. San Francisco St. PG Randy Deaton lead his team with 13 points before picking up his 5th foul with under a minute to play.
UC San Diego 91, Central Arkansas 70
Coach ARomano likes to speed things up at UC San Diego, and that exactly what they did in this contest enroute to a 91-70 win at home over Central Arkansas and new coach emy1013. Central Arkansas tried to slow the game down, but UC San Diego's press was more than they could handle as UCSD forced 19 turnovers vs. 12 of their own.
CSU Los Angeles 60, Henderson St. 50
Coach SimAI at Henderson St. couldn't crack the code against cbryant31's human brain, and fell to the invaders from Los Angeles 60-50 at home. CSU LA's frontcourt combo of PF James Murphy and C John Ojeda led the charge for their team with 28 points and 12 board (10 for Ojeda) between them. CSULA played very good defense, holding Henderson St. to just 35.6% shooting from the field.
CSU Bakersfield 68, Christian Brothers 63
Christian Brothers, led by coach td16, gave home-team CSU Bakersfield and dan2044 all they could handle, but Bakersfield got the win to stay undefeated and bring the CCAA within a game of the Gulf South in the Challenge headed into the final night. Four Bakersfield starters were in double figures, led by PG Jim "The Wonder Kid" Wondoloski's 16 points and 3 assits. SF-playing-PF Brian Wright added 11 points and 10 boards for the home team. Christian Brothers put up a balanced scoring effort, with 2 players scoring 10 points and all 11 players who saw the floor scoring at least 1 bucket.
Going into the final night of the Challenge the Gulf South leads the CCAA 5-4.
