The Mount shot very poorly in the first half while turning the ball over 13 times.
A couple of positives, I'll take from it.
- Shawn Atupem had 16 points and had 15 offensive chances. He was 8-of-10 from the foul line and 4-of-10 from the floor. But I still think he has to be the offensive lift for this team down the stretch.
- Obviously the staff is bringing Jean Cajou back slowly. But he was able to get in the game play 11 minutes and score 5 points. It's just good to see that for Cajou. And ultimately if Jean is able to get back to the playing level we've come to expect in the past it will help down the stretch.
- Jacolby Wells had 7 points in 12 minutes of play. The sophomore continues to show that at times he can utilize his athleticism to his benefit.
Saturday's game is at St. Francis. The Terriers handled league leading Wagner with relative ease. We'll see how these two performances carry over. I expect a good hard fought game down to the wire on Saturday.
