The Riverhawks took on the Ohio University Zanesville Bobcats once again. However, this time the Riverhawks came out with a win, 107-76. “This was a big win for use as a team. We played them early in the season before we really knew each other and this game displayed how much we have improved as a team,” #20 Brandon Roe said.
At the start of the game the Riverhawks were not sticking to their plays. Instead, taking the ball down the court and passing the ball one or two times seemed like the most action that the Riverhawks were giving on offense.
Coach Roy was getting riled up on the courtside and called a timeout to get the team back on track. “Move the ball around,” was the main issue Coach Roy told the players during the timeout.
Right before halftime Roe stole the ball from Bobcat #14 Jarod Cox and took the ball slowly down the court for a lay-up. However, Roe turned around and fouled Cox right after. Cox made both to basically cancel out Roe’s big steal.
Foul shots were a big part of the game for Riverhawk #45 Camaron Lancaster. He went up to the line six times during the game and missed more than half of his shots. At the completion of the game he joked to his father that Camaron was glad he was taught how to shoot foul shots well.
Even though Lancaster had a rough time with foul shots, he had 12 blocks and 11 rebounds during the game. Number 31 Keith Penn was the top scorer with 31 points, with #46 Sean Michael next in line with 24 points.
The Riverhawks next game is Feb. 18 at Ohio Valley University.
