2009-05-12 Smart Jelas Beats Sangmoo SK, 90-76

* Just saw the video thru “Justin TV”. It’s quite pixelated, hard to see who is doing what. Gotta start memorizing the jersey numbers, it seems thats the only way to identify the players.

* I think Barroca should change his name to “Andi Mark”. It actually sounds better. Same with “Kris-toper” Tiu and “Ebans” Casio. LOL

* “Smart Jelas” just looked so damn fast at times. Lots of fastbreak plays, especially off the opponent’s turnovers. Even at half court, we were catching the team even before they could settle down on defense. Toroman is truly helping this team maximize its speed potential. Once “Andi Mark” starts running off on offense with the ball, that’s it, nobody could keep in step with him.

* Sangmoo South Korea had a tall, sweet-shooting team, but unfortunately they were also slow. Speed killed them in the second half, they just couldn’t keep up with us in terms of hand (steals and interceptions) and foot speed (fastbreaks or drive in plays).

* “Kris-toper” was deadly with that mid-range shot, while CJ Giles was just a monster off the boards. “Ebans” Casio was spectacular for a stretch when we were leading a big margin, breaking the press, hitting the outside shot and creatings shots off drives.

* Overall, the SK team was simply overmatched in this game. The game against Iran will be very different game for us, I feel we will struggle against that team.

* Here’s a partial list of players with their jersey numbers for future reference:
– “Ebans” Casio (6)
– CJ Giles (11)
– “Andi Mark” Barroca (4)
– Dylan Ababou (7)
– “Kris-toper” Tiu (8)
– Greg Slaughter (9)
– Dylan Ababou (7)
