Balanced Scoring, Huge 3rd Quarter Lift Impact to 2nd win - Dec 2, 2010

The Dallas Impact used a 48 point 3rd quarter to pull away from the North Texas Fresh in an extremely entertaining game Wednesday night at Lakewest Family YMCA.

Coming off a revamping of their roster, the Impact (2-4) used their aggressive full court press to record 18 steals and turn the Fresh over 29 times en route to a 140-119 victory on their home court. The Fresh started off strong behind 17 first half points from their big man, TJ Gibson, and a couple of early 3 balls from Kyle Plath (6'4''-G-88, college: Wisc.Lutheran) but never showed signs of pulling away. The Impact hung in there with balanced scoring from their starters and a solid performance by the bench. One of the bright spots for the Impact in the first half was the strong showing from the newly acquired Blake Armelin. Armelin came off the bench to put up 12 points and grab 4 boards in a tight first half which ended with the Impact leading 59-57.

Whatever head Coach Dave Washington and the Impact coaching staff told their team at halftime worked wonders in the third quarter as the Impact came out on fire. Led by the inspiring play of Darius Howard (6'4''-G-83, college: SW Assemblies of God) (15pts in 3rd) and Habeeb Kareem (6'6''-F-85, college: Ozarks) (6pts 5rbs in 3rd), the Impact upped the intensity on the full court press and utilized the 3-D rule to extend their lead to 29 before the Fresh even knew what hit them. The Impact really put their stamp on their 3rd quarter when Malcolm Thomas (6'6''-F-88), another new acquisition for the Impact, followed up an Ed Robinson miss with a thunderous one-handed putback dunk that brought the house down and brought everyone in the gym to their feet. The Fresh were paced by 9 points apiece in the quarter from Troy Edward and AD Duncan as the Impact took a commanding 107-78 lead into the 4th.

The Fresh made a run in the 4th quarter led by Roy Gines who showed his vertical with several rim rocking dunks of his own. After having their lead cut down to 15 in the final interval thanks in part to superb free throw shooting from the Fresh, the Impact looked towards their fearless point guard Chase Adams (5'10''-G-88, college: Pittsburgh). After a quiet first half, Adams attacked the rim several possessions in a row in the 4th quarter and came away with points each time to keep the Fresh at bay. In the end the Impacts depth proved too much for the Fresh to overcome, especially after their inspirational head coach and former ABA star Jay Bowdy (6'5''-F-83, college: W.Georgia) was ejected late in the 3rd quarter with back to back technical fouls.



The Impact hit the road for 4 tough games starting with the defending ABA champions Southeast Texas Mavericks on Saturday December 4 at 7:30pm at NJEC Arena
