Ugly Win Affected by a Foul Called Every 55 Seconds(65 Fouls)

Posted: November 4, 2016 in AVC Men's Basketball, AVC Men's BB 2015-16, AVC Men's BB 2016-17, Defense, Fouls, Ventura Tournament

Its been a long time since I watched a basketball game without overtime with 65 fouls.  As my readers know, I do not complain about the officiating often.  In fact, the ideal game to me is one where the fans do not even know the officials are there.  Its hard to say that, in a game where there was a foul called every 55 seconds. No chance of any kind of rhythm. 

Took a look at the statistics of the other three games for fouls;  43 fouls average verses 65 for AVC verses OC.  Nuff said. 

As expected, all 13 AVC players got minutes and four players were in double figures;

  1. Cory Dollarhide 16
  2. Ace Warren 15
  3. Chris Solis 13
  4. Scooter Hall 11

AVC’s “Bigs” shot 16 for 17 from the floor.  Great work big men!image

AVC shot a solid 53.6% from the floor. 

Osi Nwachukwu, 6’4” freshman played shut down defense and put in 8 points…my defensive player of the game.






imageChris Solis, 6’2”, freshman was 4-6 from beyond the arc and this was only in 9 minutes in the game.  Chris was not expected to play due to a nagging injury.  Offensive player of the game. 

One ugly game but a win.  I am expecting a better game by AVC against Riverside today.  Riverside a talented team.  I am looking for four players to step up;

  1. Dee Jones
  2. Jailen Gill
  3. Reggie Byers
  4. Nevell Lenard
