P.J. Torres
The Revolution took an early 22-10 lead, but the visiting PrimeTime Players, with hot outside shooting, surged past the home team and pulled away in the second half to win 117-87.
Petersburg in its first year is now 8-3 while the Players improve to 8-2.
"We didn't play a lot of good defense today. We knew that they were a transition, fast-breaking, three-point shooting team and we let a couple of them get away from us," Revolution head coach Kyle Dixon said.
James Shambley (6'8''-F), who scored 14 points in the contest for Petersburg, said they didn't have it together all the way - they weren't moving the ball like they were supposed to and not doing that good of a job playing outside defense like usual.
"It's a couple things we need to shape up on, but in the end, we're going to bounce back, we'll definitely do that," Shambley said. "It's just a stepping stone. We're still going through growing pains. We'll be good."
Petersburg came out on fire in rebounding as Shambley was everywhere where PrimeTime's early missed shots ended up going. He added a couple of key buckets while P.J. Torres (6'3''-G-93) led the team on a nine-point first quarter. But after being down by eight, PrimeTime chipped away until Danny Sanders (6'7''-SF-89, college: Jarvis Christian) knocked down a three-pointer in the second quarter to hand the lead back to the Players.
Petersburg knotted up the contest twice off of two free throws and a dunk made by Demond Hickman (6'7''-F-86, college: Elizabeth City) and then took the point off of Tommie Starks' foul shot. But a buzzer-beating three made by Lewis Sims, who found the net often in the quarter for 15 points, tipped the scales back into PrimeTime's favor at the half with Petersburg trailing 47-49.
Sanders and Moore picked up the pace in scoring in the third and the Players slowly grew the gap over their opponents to lead 80-66 after three quarters. Shambley briefly sparked the Revolution on a three-pointer to open the fourth and Starks followed up with a free throw, but PrimeTime would own the quarter 37-21.
"I think what happened was we were working so hard on defense that when it came time for us to shoot on offense ... a little fatigue kicked in," Dixon said, adding: "I just wish we would've left it on the court."
Shambley added they need to box out and be in better position, which he said was "everything" in any sport.
"Once you're in position, everything will flow your way," Shambley said. "I'm kind of pleased with our conditioning and we've got a deep roster ... we've just got to be in position."
Shambley added of Prime Time, "They're a real tough team. They've got a lot of history. They've been playing together for a while ... that whole group of guys, they gel together ... we just need to get that chemistry too."
Although they lost their first home game of the season, Dixon said they needed this type of loss "to sting" and gets them to hit the playoffs with attitude.
P.J. Torres (6'3''-G-93) led the Revolution with 20 points, followed by Shambley with 14 and Earl Gee II and Hickman with 13 apiece.
Moore led PrimeTime with 25, followed by Sanders and Sims with 23 apiece. Six of the seven Players scored in double-digits.
"Our next home game is June 11 [against the High Point Hawks] and hopefully we get more home crowd - that can help out, too, when they're shooting free throws," Dixon said. "But the mayor [W. Howard Myers] was here, that's amazing.
"Anybody who can help out, that can show that we're doing something positive in the community is good in my book."
