Game Day Round Up #1 – Polpharma at Turow

Each week I’m going to give you my thoughts on the game that Turow has just played. This week we played Polpharma at Home in Zgorzelec. This was a long tough week of practice because we previously let a game slip out of our hands into Kotwica’s. We were up by 18 points at one point in the game only to relinquish the lead in Overtime. Ted Scott has a season high of 37 points he was on fire but we still controlled the whole game until the end. The bitter taste in our mouth is left for the whole week and practice was very intense!

Now were back home with a televised game against Polpharma is a scrappy team who can really drill it from 3 point range. Our goals were to play great transition defense, key in on their 3 point shooters, and rebound. We got off to a strong start playing aggressive defensive and limiting their fast break points.

We had a nice balanced attack going into the game. Every player contributed in a significant way and we were able to hold off a pesky Polpharma team lead by Michael Hicks’ 23 points and Deonta Vaughn’s 17 and the late flurry of 3 point shots by Tomasz Cielebąk.

The fans were on their feet the entire game! We feed off of their energy they worked the referee’s very well and had their chants going non-stop! The electricity in the arena fueled our runs!

The pace of the game was up tempo which the score indicated 92-84 in favor of PGE Turow. The leading scorers were Ivan Koljevic with 17 points with three crucial 3-pointers in the 2nd half of the game. Marko Brkic 14 points and 8 rebounds, Konrad Wysocki 11 points and 8 rebounds, Ivan Zigeranovic 12 points, and myself with 16 points 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 5 steals.

It is always a great thing to have multiple players in double figures but I have to give credit to the interior players like Robert Tomaszek and Michal Gabinski who really played tough for us under the paint. Our perimeter players David Jackson, Michael Kuebler, and Bartosz Bochno played key roles in making this a total team effort to get the win!
