Sea Dawgs come up short in home finale - May 26, 2012

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Poor shooting and a late-game letdown combined to send the Wilmington Sea Dawgs to an 88-85 loss to the Queen City Express Friday night.

'We've had chances all the time to put teams away, but down the stretch we play a little relaxed,' Sea Dawgs forward Damien Brown (6'7''-C/F-87, college: Averett) said. 'And then it gets to us and we end up fighting back and forth in the last seconds.'

The Sea Dawgs (6-5) had reason to relax Friday the Queen City Express showed up with only seven players, and seemed certain to wear down.

But Express guard Kenyatta Reed (5'10''-PG, college: Clinton JC) had plenty of energy left in the final quarter. With the Sea Dawgs nursing a 72-70 lead, Reed hit three straight 3-pointers to put the Express on top.

'It stings, you know that,' Brown said of the loss. 'With a team with just seven like that, coming on the road, that was rough.'

The Sea Dawgs struggled shooting the entire game, shooting just 28 percent from the field for the game.

'A lot of shots weren't dropping in the first half,' Sea Dawgs point guard Zach Herrmann (6'0''-PG-80, college: Augusta St.) said. 'We had good shots, easy shots, and it's not like we missed them big. They were in and out. If we hit half of those we probably win by 15.'

While Friday's final home game loss stings, the Sea Dawgs remain in third place in the Tobacco Road League.

Players said the condensed season in between European and minor league play has allowed a mix of talent, between players like Brown and Shelton Carter who have international experience and Sea Dawg veterans like Herrman, Mike Gibbs and J.J. Cook.

The team chemistry was good enough to allow a late-season addition, former Old Dominion guard Marsharee Neely (6'2''-G-88, college: ODU). Neeley led the Sea Dawgs with 21 points Friday and added 11 rebounds.

'It's worked really well, especially with guys like Shelton and Damien and now Marsharee,' Herrman said. 'They're really good guys, so it'd be really hard not to gel with them.'

Bull City Legacy outgun Cary Invasion - 2 Years ago
As is tradition, arch rivals the Cary Invasion and the Bull City Legacy opened their respective seasons last Saturday, this time in Durham at Voyager Academy and, in what has become their tradition, both teams gave those attending a show. These two teams really don't care for each other much, but that they do respect each other's game is apparent. This due, in part, to both teams carrying players on their rosters who used to play for the other team. While, too, many of them have been team...   [read more]
