RESULTS & RECORDS
Week 3 of Pistons Academy is in the book, see below for a quick recap of the games.
Hoosiers 25 , Spartans 19: The Spartans began the game on a 10-0 and it looked like they would cruise to an easy victory. However, the resilient Hoosiers woke up and went on their own 10-0 led by Jack Holton. The score was tied 12-12 at halftime. The stingy team-defense of the Hoosiers continued in the 2nd half as they only allowed 7 points while the offensive combination of Holton and Phil Diskin proved to be too much for the Spartans. Alex Pirrotta and Hayden Levy led the Spartans with 4 points apiece. Holton led all scorers with 11 points.
Wolverines 37, Grizzlies 17: This was a battle of two undefeated teams and the Wolverines proved to be the better team on this day as they improved their record to 3-0. Jack Genzlinger and Ben Diskin helped the Wolverines sprint to a 14-2 run to begin the game. Down by 12 points at halftime, the Grizzlies could never recover as the confident Wolverines increased their lead throughout the 2nd half. The two teams will meet again later in the season where the Grizzles will look for the season split before the playoffs begin.
Warriors 42, Bulls 31: The Warriors scrapped their way to a big victory over the previously undefeated Bulls team. Like their NBA counterparts, the Warriors were scorching hot from behind the 3-point line as they made 8 three-pointers in the game. Noah Kam and Brett Bankowski were on fire in the second half and this helped to prevent the Bulls team from making a comeback.
Spurs 25, Celtics 22: This game was a tale of two halves as both teams were seemingly scoring at will in the first half. The Celtics were led by the 3 point shooting of Joseph Yaldo’s while Jack Fundukian led the Spurs squad in the first half as they took a 20-16 lead. However, there were only 11 total points scored in the 2nd half. Both teams used strong defensive play to prevent the other from going on any scoring runs. It was the Spurs who were able to get stops when it mattered most and squeak out a 3 point victory. Yaldo finished with a game high 12 points in the loss. 5 players scored for the Spurs in the victory.
