Gameday Round Up #6 – Turow at Anwil

We were ready for a tough road game on satuday. We knew coming into this game it would be a hard-fought one. Anwil has a great fan base and it was deafening loud at times in the arena. The game was not a very pretty one to watch because many plays were not executed successfully but the energy and effort from both teams were at an extremely high level. In the first half Anwil started out strong and went on a run going up 8 points but we managed to close the gap and take a 2 point lead going into Halftime.

Our game plan was to limit turnovers and limit Anwil’s offensive rebounds and we had a good chance to win an important game for Turow. The second half was played similarly like the 1st half in which both teams could not find a solid rhythm but we were able to make defensive stops when we needed them. The pace at times was frantic both teams wanted to run the fast break but it was the execution down the stretch that allowed us to prevail with a 69-65 win.

Nikola Jovanovic led Anwil with 16 points and 8 rebounds, Paul Miller with 12 points and Eric Hicks with 9 points and 3 blocks.

David Jackson with 12 points, Marko Brkic with 9 points and 8 rebounds and myself with 23 points and 4 rebounds led Turow.

As soon as the buzzer sounded you can see the exhaustion on both teams’ faces because it was a hard fought battle. It is always great to get a win and even more important to get it when you’re not hitting shots that you usually make.

Right now after this important win we are heading to Olsztyn for a cup game and right after that we’ll hear the results for the All-Star game that is going be held next weekend in Kalisz. If I get selected then I will be part of the event on Sunday, if not that leaves us with a few free days to focus on the upcoming important battle against Polonia on the 22nd.
