Huge night for Beidler; IR still winless

Written for your enjoyment by: Raff

Kelly Beidler scored 32 points and grabbed 17 rebounds but his IR team fell to 0-3 in the Icelandic Express League with a 107-97 overtime loss to crosstown KFI. Craig Schoen, who played a year at Lipscomb before transferring to Georgetown KY, matched Beidler's 32 and his 3-pointer sent the game to overtime, where KFI outscored IR 15-5.

Beidler was 10-for-17 from the floor, including 4-of-5 from behind the arc, and made 8 of 11 free throws to total the 32. 13 of his 17 rebounds came on the defensive end, and he also handed out 4 assists and had 2 blocks.

After three rounds of play in the Icelandic League, Beidler's 24.7 point per game average is good for a tie for second in the league scoring table. Andre Dabney leads the league with a 26.3 average. Beidler is also fifth in rebounding at 10.7 per contest. Through 3 games, he is shooting 48% from the floor, including 44% from behind the arc - and is making 78% of his free throws.

  1. Dayummmmmmmm, that boy is gonna be a superstar in no time. I know who I am hanging around during Alumni Day at the Ott House. He is gonna end up a bigtime moolah maker. It does not surprise me in the least that he is performing this good. He had more heart than anyone last year I believe. I knew he would do better than Goode in the pros.
