The Werewolves and Ball Don’t Lie faced off Tuesday night with a fast-paced third game of the season. Both teams came to play, but the Werewolves took home the win 67-58, delivering the Werewolves their second win this season.
The Werewolves had big numbers across the board, but the playmaker of the evening was Brian Heston with 26 points, with a nice combo of inside and outside shots. Heston led the team in offensive and defensive rebounds and pulled in eight out of his teams 15 offensive rebounds.
Heston was on fire all night, hitting jumpers from every angle and finding openings all over the court. Not to go unseen was Ball Don’t Lie’s top scorer Grant Rosenburg who managed to rack up 33 points of his team’s 58.
Last week against Good U, the Werewolves seemed to be losing momentum in the second half as they watched the margin increase. This week, they held strong. They struggled defensively in Week 2 with their zone coverage and allowed for Good U to manage some clean looks at the rim. This week they looked like their chemistry was better and their ability to close defensive gaps had improved.
There is a lot of room for the Werewolves to keep developing their defensive chemistry. As far as the Werewolves season looks, they made up for their loss in Week 2 by coming away with the win in Week 3.
Ball Don’t Lie also looked to be working better offensively and defensively by increasing team chemistry and ball movement. The Werewolves were able to hang on to their ranking above Ball Don’t Lie with the win and look to keep climbing up the standings.
