Carroll beats Northrop in the Highlight Zone Game of the Week on 2/8/19


ALMOST EVERY LEAGUE AROUND… A-C-A-C TITLE UP FOR GRABS IN MONROEVILLE… N-E-8 TITLE COULD BE CLINCHED AT THE BIG BLUE PIT… WE’LL GET TO THOSE… BUT FIRST… WE START IN THE CITY… WHERE YOU KNEW IT WASN’T GOING TO BE PRETTY… ANDY MCDONNELL JOINS US WITH YOUR HIGHLIGHT ZONE GAME OF THE WEEK… THANKS GLENN… TO PUT THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE… THE LAST TIME NORTHROP WON THE S-A-C OUTRIGHT… THE THREE POINT LINE DID NOT EXIST. THAT WAS WAY BACK IN 1987… TO DO THAT THOUGH… THE BRUINS WOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE SECOND BEST TEAM IN THE CONFERENCE. CARROLL AT NORTHROP… IT’S YOUR HIGHLIGHT ZONE GAME OF THE WEEK… THE BRUINS COMING IN ALONE ATOP THE S-A-C AT 7-0 IN CONFERENCE… THE REIGNING S-A-C CHAMPS… CARROLL RIGHT BEHIND AT 6-AND-1… SLOW START FOR BOTH SIDES… DAVID EJAH THE THREE BALL TOP OF THE KEY… THEN IT’S NICK HAINES FROM THE CORNER FOR NORTHROP… GIVE HIM ALL THREE OF THESE. CARROLL LEADS JUST 19-15 AT THE BREAK… WITH KEION BROOKS JR TAKING IT IN DURING A FREE WEEKEND FOR LA LUMIERE. THIRD QUARTER… A SCRAMBLE ON THE INSIDE… THE BALL FINDS EJAH… THE SENIOR PUNISHES THE RIM FOR 2… HE HAD 16 POINTS AND 18 BOARDS ON THE NIGHT. ROD CHAMBLE’S BUNCH TURNS UP THE INTENSITY … TENOAH RIDLEY… THE RIP AND THE FINISH… PLUS THE FOUL… NORTHROP CLIMBING BACK INTO THIS THING AT 34-30. BUT THIS WOULD BE THE TURNING POINT… THE END OF THE THIRD QUARTER. DAN MCKEEMAN… WE CALL HIM MONEY MCKEEMAN FOR A REASON… HE DROPS IN 3 THREES IN THE FINAL 90 SECONDS OF THE QUARTER… CHARGERS OPEN IT UP TO 43-32 HEADING INTO THE FOURTH. KHAMANI SMITH AND THE BRUINS… KEEPING HOPE ALIVE… THE BANK IS OPEN… TO CUT THE LEAD BACK TO SINGLE DIGITS… THEN OFF THE MISS… IT’S BIG SYDNEY CURRY UNDERNEATH…HE WAS HELD TO JUST 11 POINTS… IT’S 55-48. BUT IT’S TOO LITTLE… TOO LATE… THE CHARGERS MAKE THEIR FREE THROWS TO CLOSE OUT THIS GAME… OUTRIGHT? CARROLL SAYS NOT TONIGHT… CHARGERS HAND NORTHROP THEIR FIRST LOSS….63-50… AND KEEP THEIR TITLE HOPES ALIVE. ((…)) NORTHROP CLOSES OUT S-A-C PLAY NEXT FRIDAY AT DWENGER… WHILE CARROLL HOSTS HOMESTEAD THAT SAME NIGHT IN WHAT WILL BE YOUR HIGHLIGHT ZONE GAME OF THE WEEK AND DETERMINE THE S-A-C CHAMPION… GLENN, BACK TO YOU
