    Lamar vs UNO

    Ladies are at home versus UNO tonight at 7 PM while the men travel to New Orleans for a 7 PM game. Personally I like this set up for weekday games better than the double headers. I think giving the Ladies a prime time spot at home during conference will be good for their attendance and growth of the program.

    UNO men get off to an extremely hot start making 5 of their first seven field goals to jump out to a 13 - 2 lead. We'll have to see how the Cards recover from this start.

    At the under eight timeout UNO is leading 25 - 11. LU has been their usual careless with the ball early and questionable shot selection. Add to that UNO has continued with their hot field goal shooting including a couple of miracle shots that have fallen.

    At the under four minute time out and the good news is UNO has finally started missing some shots. The bad news is LU continues to turn the ball over with 11 turnovers. Score at 25 - 13 UNO.

    Re: Lamar vs UNO

    Halftime for the men and UNO is leading 29 - 16. Disappointing first half for Lamar, LU shooting just 27% from the field including 1 of 8 from three point range. Lamar has 12 turnovers. Only positives are LU is leading in rebounding and has only committed four fouls but the foul total isn't as good as it looks as two of the fouls are on Weisbrod who has no points and only one rebound. Lamar will need to step up big time in the second half.

    Lady Cards are up by 19 at 50 - 31. UNO kept it close through the first quarter before the Ladies built up the big lead in the second quarter.

    7:36 left in the game and Lamar as scratched their way back into the game as they are down by four now, with the score 54 - 50. Lamar has been very aggressive on defense and the Lamar offense has been much more efficient.

    1:23 left in the game with the Cards down by six and unable to get the rebound following three stops. Looks like the hole dug in the first half is going to be to deep to come back from.

    They played horribly. They are like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. They are so unpredictable. When they are good, they are good, but when they are bad they are bad.

    Re: Lamar vs UNO

    Critique of men's game. Probably not enough defensive energy at the start of the game but overall they played well defensively. Offensively Lamar needs a point guard that will control the floor, both Frenchwood and Noel are prone to turnovers that are the result of trying to do something spectacular rather than staying under control and running the offense. Harrison is a little out of control also, much like the comment I made a couple of weeks ago about Atwood trying to do to much rather than letting the game come to him. Foster played some tonight which is the first time in maybe four or five games, he seemed to play fairly solidly considering everything.

    Frenchwood is a much better point guard. Noel is completely out of control. He disrupts the whole flow of the game.

    Agree that Frenchwood is the better of the two and maybe it was just a bad start or match up but he had early turnovers in both halves when UNO built their lead. I just think that point guard is still one of Lamar's weaknesses. It was good to see Bosha hit some shots in the second half and that Nzeakor is really becoming a force.

    Would be nice if Lamar could have a first half without double digit turnovers.

    PG position is always key to winning IMHO and just having average PGs isn’t going to cut it.
