Adam Wing
It was a rough start for the Orangeville defense as they were unable to contain numerous drives to the basket by the Titans. However, after being on the wrong end of the opening 11-4 run, the A's were quick to respond with a 6-0 run of their own a few possessions later that sparked the offense into taking a 18-16 lead. Stefan Nastic (6'11''-C-92, college: Stanford) was a standout for the A's on the offensive end with 10 points (4/4 FT). The A's attacked and continuously drew fouls on KW. From the field they shot a poor 30% but ended the 1st quarter only trailing by 2 points. Rick Bodiford (6'4''-G-87, college: IU Southeast) added an efficient 14 points and 4 rebounds (4/9 FG, 2/3 3FG, 4/4 FT). The 22-24 deficit didn't last long and the A's took a 31-26 lead early in the 2nd while the Titans' shooting had gone completely cold. The Orangeville defense deserved most of the credit in limiting the Titans' attack and they often converted their forced turnovers into transition opportunities. Their work within the paint still lagged behind their perimeter defense however, allowing 16 points in the paint in the first half. On the other end it was the complete opposite with 12 of their 13 first half field goals coming inside the arc but their outside shooting couldn't find the mark. Unfortunately, for the A's the late goings of the quarter saw the Titans' Adam Wing (6'4''-G-93, college: Evansville) torch the A's for 11 points (3/5 3PT FG) from outside. Wing's long range shooting is always a threat whenever he steps onto the floor and his scoring came at the right time to give his team the 41-37 lead to end the first half. Coming out of the break with 4 quick points, the game was once again evened up right out of the gate. Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson (6'6''-F-91, college: Temple) (16p, 6/11 FG) stepped to the forefront of the offense in the 2 nd half after being held to just 3 points in the first two quarters. He scored at will and was responsible for Orangeville's first 8 of 10 points in the frame. However, back on the Kitchener-Waterloo end, the scoring display put on by both Ed Horton (6'1''-PG-85, college: Murray St.) (11p, 5a) & George Blakeney (6'9''-F/C-91, college: UNC Pembroke) (10p, 5r) kept the game close. Neither side seemed to be able to create a sizeable lead until a Jason Calliste (6'2''-G-90, college: Oregon) 3-pointer created a 7-point lead for the Titans. Rick Bodiford would later respond with a 3-pointer of his own to end the quarter and Orangeville remained within one possession of the home team. Once again starting the quarter trailing their opponents, Orangeville needed a strong performance from their key players to make a run at the lead. Calliste (15p, 5/11 FG) & Bodiford (14p, 2/3 3PT FG) continued to go head-to-head with each other but no ground was gained for either side. The problems for Orangeville began when their big men (Stefan Nastic and Corbin Thomas (6'6''-F-91, college: Missouri St.)) had to spend more time on the bench due to foul trouble and that opened up the paint for George Blakeney (19p, 10/14 FT). The Titans reached the bonus with over 5 minutes left in the quarter. The lead grew to as big as 8 points and the game began to slip away from the A's. Hollis-Jefferson (24p, 10-19 FG) did whatever he could to keep within range but foul trouble and turnover problems emerged down the stretch. They even closed the deficit to as little as two points but another unfortunate turnover under the basket along with some KW free throws to close out the game eventually led to an 89-96 loss.
