The Petersburg Cavaliers (0-1) season opener fell short of expectations Saturday night when they fell 124-100 to the Hampton Roads Warriors (1-0). The Cavs led by three points after a first half shootout before giving up 39 points in a third quarter blitz by the visiting Warriors. 'We played good in the first half,' said Starting Point Guard Dwayne Richardson. 'We were getting stops on defense, we played good offense, we were taking shots and played together. The second half was all on us.' The East Coast Basketball League season opener for both teams opened to a fairly tame opening bout but heated up about five minutes in. Richardson penetrated the front line and danced, sideto- side between the last twodefenders to make a layup. On the very next play the shot ricocheted to Anthony Jones in the paint who went up against two Warriors for the rebound and the points. At the other end, Hampton struggled to move well in the early stages but kept up reasonably with the pace the cavaliers set. The Cavaliers led 26-36 at the end of the first quarter. 'Our goal is to score 30 points a quarter and give up 20 or less,' said head coach Kyle Dixon. 'They scored 27 but we also scored six more than our goal so everything was going to plan.' The second quarter passed much like the first. The rotation of point guards controlled the ball high up the court and worked through the Warrior's high court press before penetrating for layups. The Cavalier's threepoint shooting was also immaculate in the first half. Both Tommie Starks and Kevin Barnes (6'4''-F) dropped back-to-back three-pointers while Richardson, Donovan Willis, Alonzo Howard (6'6''-F) combined for six more. 'We were able to work through [the press] in the second quarter and we kept making al of the key three pointers,' said coach Dixon. The Cav's form and game plan unraveled in the third quarter. After an early run of points for Hampton the score sat at 77-70. 'I have to look at the film to see exactly what happened. At one point it was 77-70 for a while, up and down. Next thing, I blinked and we're down 16.' Plays started collapsing high up the courtwhen Hampton started pressing the point guards in the corners, causing turnovers that led to several points for the warriors. At 79-70, Petersburg got a free throw that ended the drought. The open shots they did find a way to engineer kept falling short or bouncing out of the rim. 'It's hard to miss shots and get back on defense,' Richardson said. 'Once we started missing a lot of shots we didn't get back on defense. They were scoring and it led to a blowout.' Petersburg kept having problems high up the court. Hampton followed the Cav's free throw with 10 unanswered points until Jones dropped a long three pointer. The half ended 10074, with the game nearly gone. Despite better fourth quarter play and Barnes hitting back-to-backto- back three-pointers on consecutive possessions, the damage was already done. 'Of course, everybody is down now but we use all this for motivation. Any time something goes wrong, its motivation,' Richardson said. 'I'd rather us get blown out earlier in the season than later. It's a learning experience. I'd rather learn everything now then fix it.' Petersburg kept a competitive fourth quarter, scoring one less point than theWarriors. The Cavaliers played this game without 6 players who are currently finishing the ABA season with the Richmond Elite. 'I told them in the lockerroom, 'Feel this, experience this. And never want to feel this way again. This could have easily been the 13th game of the season and we're packing up and going home,' said Dixon. 'We need to take every possession serious, we need to take our time and do what we do. In the first half, we were dictating, in the second half they started dictating everything and we can't allow that. Even if they start pressing, we have press breakers. We have everything. We have to run our plays.'
