With the ACC-Big Ten Challenge coming up our focus shifts, but there were three Sunday games to talk about. Clemson beat Marist with no problems, as expected, Bryant took BC, albeit with Ryan Anderson injured, and Georgia Tech got a nice win over Saint Mary's, 65-56.
|No Monday Games|
Nobody shot well; St. Mary's was just 37% from the floor and Tech was 38.2%. But Tech hit six threes in the second half and held Matthew Dellavedova to 1-8 from the floor and forced 21 turnovers.
St. Mary's has been reliably good lately, so that's a nice game for the Yellow Jackets.
No surprise that Clemson beat Marist, but they got a nice turn from Devin Booker, who had 15 points and 13 boards. Clemson's defense continues to be solid: they held Marist to 34%. Their defense has been pretty solid. Take a look:
- Presbyterian 30.2%
- Furman 46.2%
- Gonzaga 48.9%
- UTEP 37%
- Marist 34%
Gonzaga's just good, and Clemson is young, so that's understandable. Furman is less so. We'll see how they do from here.
BC really needs a healthy Ryan Anderson. Look what he did before hurting his ankle: 22.6 points and 10.3 rebounds in the first three games.
They've really pushed Olivier Hanlan and Joe Rahon, who finished with 19 and 11 respectively.
Despite his ankle, Anderson pulled down 14 boards but was just 4-14.
With his backcourt, Anderson gives BC something to build on - when he's fully ready.
