April 16th PETERSBURG VA - Playing their second home game ever, the Revolution continued to point out why the City of Petersburg now has itself a basketball team.
And the high-powered Minor League team did so with explosive team plays, big dunks and eight players scoring in the double digits in its 141-91 trouncing of the Carolina MPact.
That puts the Revolution up 4-1 in their inaugural season. Petersburg currently holds first place in the East Coast Basketball League Northern Division. They will head to Falling Creek (417 Hood St, Rockingham, NC) on Sunday, April 17 for a 5 p.m. matchup against the Fayetteville Crossover, who last year played in the ECBL championship game against the eventual winners, the PrimeTime Players.
"We have to make sure we have our heads on straight and we're focused and ready to play basketball, because it's going to be a fight," Revolution head coach Kyle Dixon said of their upcoming matchup against Fayetteville.
Tyree Desmore led a balanced attack by the Revolution with 15 points, followed by Deshon Dabbs and P.J. Torres with 13 points apiece, William Mackey with 12, A.J. Brown, Reggie Cherry and Cedric Kwindja with 11 apiece and Lorenzo Bailey with 10.
"We came out to a great start - they kind of got back on us but we kind of got our stuff together, was able to regroup ... we pulled through," Desmore said. "They preach intensity a lot here, and when we feel like it's down, put another group in, we come with that energy, hopefully pick the other group back up - we just feed off each other's energy."
While the MPact put together a couple of strong scoring runs during the game, the Revolution fought hard throughout the contest with their multiple go-to players enabling them to rocket away from Carolina in the second half. Even when leading by 30 and 40, the home team played as if they were fighting for the lead on every possession.
"Even at the end of the game when we put the last group in - we already had a comfortable lead - we still picked it up like we were down 50," Desmore said. "We never let up."
Following a timeout with Petersburg leading 20-10- and James Shambley capping off the home team's nine-point run on two free-throws to open the game - Carolina rallied to trail 20-24 with less than two minutes left in the first quarter.
But the Revolution, hit their stride in the second, with David Early bringing the one-armed dunk, Daniel Eacho tipping it in for two and Desmore sailing to the basket off of a Revolution takeaway. Dabbs took a jumping grab to the house for the monster dunk in the second, and Bailey and Tommie Starks swished the ball through the net on the free-throws as the Revolution established command on a 64-48 first half.
And they wouldn't let go, taking off on nine straight points in the third quarter with Earl Gee II dashing to the net for back-to-back layups. The Revolution went up 103-67 after 36 minutes of regulation, with Darnell Jenkins slamming the ball through the hoop near the end of the third. Mackey sank points 99, 100 and 101 on the three-pointer.
Despite the loss, Desi Crisp had a stellar game for the MPact, leading all players in the contest with 31 points.
The MPact came into Saturday's game at the Rock Church of Petersburg with zero wins and three losses to start the season. But to Dixon and the Revolution, their opponent's record did not matter.
"I actually didn't know what their record was ... that's the thing, I don't want to know what their record is," Dixon said. "I just know that they're our opponent for this week and we need to be very aggressive in how we approach the game, because if we go there thinking 'Oh, they're 0-3,' we're going to take the game lightly. That's not what we're about. We're about facing every person that we play with our best, giving our best effort every time."
While the Revolution did beat Carolina by 50, Desmore and Dixon both noted how they didn't achieve their goal of holding the opponent to 80 points or less.
"Our goal every game is to keep the opponents to 20 points (or less) per quarter, and our goal is to score at least 30 per quarter," Dixon said. "As you can see, we fell short by 11."
In order for his team to beat Fayetteville, Dixon pointed to defense.
"A lot of guys got a little frustrated today, so what we need to do is clean up those problem areas," Dixon said. "I think they got frustrated because of the turnovers that we were having, so we clean up those problem areas, then it'll bring the comfort up and the turnovers down. Take care of the basketball and defend - you've got to be able to defend. That's the biggest thing - we have to defend."
Following Sunday's game, the Revolution will then rematch the Crossover at home on Saturday, April 23, 3 p.m. at Rock Church of Petersburg (2301 County Dr., Petersburg).
