Portland State Outlasts Idaho State 99-93 - Feb 22, 2019

Deante
Strickland
Portland, OR - Portland State outlasted Idaho State 99-93 in a very up tempo game from the onset. The full court pressure defense and trapping scheme from Portland State didn't phase Idaho State offense early on at all. The Bengals had a very aggressive approach as well, as they attacked the press on every possession looking to score immediately, rather than going into their halfcourt sets. This proved to be work very effectively as Idaho State took a 49-47 halftime lead as they shot 50 percent from the field and 58 percent from three point range. The Vikings could not answer the bell in the first half as the Bengals made shot after shot with their early offense that lead to Brandon Boyd and Jared Stutzman each having 14 points at the half. The lone star for the Vikings was Deante Strickland (5'10''-PG) with 13. The game was very fast and aggressive as Portland State began to take charge by getting numerous charge calls on the defensive end. They begin to pull ahead while rotating ten players into the game to wear down the Bengals. The Vikings had four of their five players in double figures come off the bench giving them a major edge as they won their third game in a row. One of the key stats for this game was bench points with Portland State having a 63-17 edge. Portland State is trying to move up the standings before the Big Sky Tournament seeking a No. 5-seed and a first round bye They are on a three game winning streak.

For Portland State 5-10 senior guard Strickland led the way with his very impressive play off the bench scoring 20 points (7-10 FG, 5-6 3 FG, 1-4 FT). He had a six to two assist to turnover ratio along with one steal. Strickland's hustle, effort, and tenacity are all very contagious and when he is making shots it opens all the lanes and options for his teammates. 6-0 sophomore guard Holland Woods was the only Viking player to reach double figures. He scored 16 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3FG, 2-3 FT) with three rebounds and eight assists against only two turnovers. Woods did a nice job in this game leading as a facilitator and allowing his teammates rhythm to flow throughout the game. Scoring guard Michael Mayhew also played well off the bench scoring 17 points (5-8 FG, 5-8 3 FG, 2-2 FT). When Mayhew enters the game he is primarily in the game to make shots. He has unlimited range on his three point shot, and has a very fast release. 6-8 junior center Sal Nuhu did a nice job defending the paint with three blocked shots and 13 rebounds. Other players whom played well off the bench were shooting guard Michael Nuga and forward Rashaad Goolsby who had 11 and 15 points respectively.

For Idaho State, 3rd-team All Big Sky Conference 6-6 Junior combo guard/forward Stutzman was one of the most complete players on the floor. Stutzman can do it all. He runs the floor extremely well and has good size for an athletic wing player with a nice shooting touch and release. He defends multiple positions and can put the ball on the floor to create shots for himself and others. He finished the game with 24 points (8-12 FG, 5-8 3FG, 3-5 FT) with three rebounds and three assists. He isn't afraid of the physical contact and moves well without the ball in his hands. 6-0 junior point guard Boyd, an All Big Sky honorable mention player last season, had some good plays throughout the game using his quickness and ball handling abilities to break the Vikings press. He also showed a solid breakdown game in the half court sets to elusively get into the paint at will. However he needs to work on finishing and converting in the paint. He scored 24 points (7-16 FG, 3-5 3FG, 7-8 FT) to go along with two rebounds, two assists, five turnovers, and three steals. Boyd is a talented player who could potentially play internationally. He needs to improve finishing in the paint vs. contact, and cutting down on turnovers. Back up point guard 5-8 senior guard Sam Dowd brings hustle and defense off the bench as he contributed 10 points (3-6 FG, 1-1 3 FG, 3-4 FT), five assists and two steals. He brings pure speed, quickness, and competitive energy. 6-5 freshman guard Austin Smellie has good size at the scoring guard position and should make an impact on the Bengals program over the next three seasons. He scored 11 points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3FG, 3-4 FT) with four rebounds and two assists. 6-7 junior Chier Maker is a nice rebounding forward, a long player who finished with 12 points (4-10 FG, 1-5 3FG, 3-4 FT) and eight rebounds.

Portland State (12-14, 7-8), hosts Sacramento State (11-12, 5-9) Saturday, February 23rd while Idaho State (9-16, 5-11), travels to play Northern Colorado (17-9, 11-4) on March 2nd.

St. John's falls to Arizona State in the First Four - 1 hour ago
St. John's has said all the right things for weeks, giving all the cliches about a fresh start and unlocking its potential. March, the team said, could be its salvation. Instead, it offered up a harsh dose of reality. St. John's hasn't been a quality team for a while now. That was apparent as it lost three straight lopsided games to end the regular season. It was obvious in an ugly blowout loss to Marquette in the Big East Tournament quarterfinals. It was merely a continuation of the down...   [read more]

Belmont beats Temple 81-70 for first NCAA Tournament win - 14 hours ago
A few seconds were still left on the clock when Fran Dunphy headed to midcourt for his final postgame handshake, the outcome long decided. Belmont was simply too much for his Owls. Nobody else in the NCAA Tournament is excited to face their efficient offense, either. Kevin McClain (6'2''-G-96) scored 29 points and led the decisive second-half run as Belmont got its first NCAA Tournament win, pulling away to an 81-70 victory Tuesday night and ending Dunphy's career in the First Four. The 1...   [read more]
