Strange game. St. Patrick outplayed and led the Panthers through two and a half quarters, going up 9 points at 35-26 mid-third when Andrew Sticklen goes out of the game with foul trouble. In his absence the Panthers come back to take the lead at the end of the quarter on an Augusta 3-pointer ahead of the buzzer.
The fourth quarter was all Panthers as Owens Crawford hit some big shots, and St. Patrick got desperate with the wrong guys shooting on a regular basis. Sticklen, who was money for three quarters, became a non-factor spectator in the fourth quarter. Go Figure!
I was impressed with the play of St. Pat point-guard Brenden Bauer and equally impressed with that of Owens Crawford.
