Spokane: Go hard or go home

By Lindsay Schnell - March 18, 2007

The refs are pretty much letting everything go. Brooks just drove the lane and dished to Zahn and bodies were flying everywhere. DeAndre Adams for Winthrop wound up smacking the ground, but no foul on anyone. On the other end, I'm sure Bradshaw for Winthrop will have cuts bruises and bumps all over him at the end of this game because the Ducks are just knocking him around. Or trying to at least -- Bradshaw, like I wrote yesterday, is a former rugby player, so he's not exactly a pushover.

Okay remember how I wrote the other day that Oregon's rotation on its match up zone was very good? Yeah, today their rotation on man-to-man isn't so hot. For the second straight time a Winthrop player just made a back door cut to get an open layup. Ernie Kent called a timeout to yell at the Ducks for that one.

Brooks came down two times in a row and pulled up for a 3, hitting only the first. Now it's great that he has that confidence, but Oregon needs to play better D if they want to win this game. They can't just rely on their star.

Bradshaw only has four points for the Eagles and hasn't touched the ball that much. Winthrop needs to get him touches virtually every time down the floor so Oregon will foul. (They did the first two possessions, so what would change?)

27-23 Winthrop lead with 5:26 to go.
