Not really live from Southport…

I’m out at Southport watching Cody Zeller and D’Vauntes Smith Rivera. It’s insanely packed with media here, and I as of yet have not been able to procure an outlet, so I’m going to be updating less often than Hugh until some of these people bail.

Anyway, Game 1, Cody Zeller and Washington beat Travis Carrroll and Danville 57-38. Statistically, they essentially canceled each other out. Zeller had 14 points and 12 rebounds, Caroll had 14 points and 11 boards. Zeller, though, had six blocks in 31 minutes, and altered several more to anchor a stellar defensive performance by Washington. The Hatchets held Danville to a hideous 22 percent (11-for-50) from the field, and had nine steals.

Zeller struggled at the free throw line, shooting 3-for-8, and against the much thicker Carroll, he rarely showed an ability to dominate inside play. Carroll was able to seal him off easily on post-ups and Zeller had a hard time getting around him.

But once Carroll did get the ball, he still had a hard time getting the ball over Zeller, who had about two inches on him. Hence the six blocks.

On the other end, Carroll often didn’t defend Zeller. Danville double-teamed him with shorter forwards at times, and sometimes use Carroll only on double teams. That didn’t work well in the first half, as Zeller drew and-ones three times inside, though he only converted on one of them.

In the end, Washington won because of its supporting cast, however. Sophomore guard Dylan Ervin led all scorers with 21 points and junior guard Kurtis Anthony added 11. Senior guard Ethan Hunsinger added seven points, seven rebounds and six assists. The Hatchets attacked in transition, scoring 16 points on fast breaks, and scored 26 points in the paint to Danville’s eight. Washington outscored Danville 13-4 in the second half to take a 28-16 halftime advantage and Danville was never closer than double digits.
