Deadlocked at the Half

By David Scott - November 22, 2006

PROVIDENCE - This one very much feels like an old Big East brawl with PC and BC notched 33-33 at the half.

The Friars have played a spirited 20 minutes of basketball and continue to pound inside on the BC defense, especially with wide-body sophomore Jonathan Kale (who we earlier mis-identified as Herbert Hill. Kale’s got a few pounds on Hill, for sure).

Providence out-rebounded Boston College 24-17 in the first half, and despite shooting 36 percent in the half, the Friars still led for most of the stanza (BC shot 45 percent). Jared Dudley had 11 points and Sean Marshall added 10 for BC. For PC, Kale scored nine, Geoff McDermott had eight and Weyinmi Efejuku scored 7.

Sean Williams' line for BC was most impressive: zero points, five rebounds, six blocks, two assists, two turnovers and three fouls.

. . . The new scoreboard at The Dunk is indeed nice (a four panel video screen), but it’s not synced up with the official scoring - pretty much every player number listed has zero points. We checked - that’s impossible when the score is 33-33.

. . . Friar coach Tim Welsh has shed his suit jacket, while his counterpart, Al Skinner still has his on. (Sartorial updates brought to you by GQ magazine.)

. . . The Lincoln Lions girls and boys jump rope team is providing half-time entertainment. These little tykes can really jump.
