Weekend Surf Report – Feb 2, 2015


Two games for the Phins last week in this edition of The Surf Report.  The women keep getting closer to notching that first win and the men have a rollercoaster week.

The Lady Phins forced 10 turnovers in the first half against Everett while shooting 24% from the field and 36% from the arc.  Fatuma Abu & Tara Bremer both put up 10 first half points while Magen Lloyd grabbed 8 boards.  The Trojans jumped out to a quick 11 point lead before a Lloyd putback sparked a 18-6 run over the next 6:33, putting the Phins up by 1 with 2:12 left in the 1st half.  The Trojans tied it 20 seconds later and scored 6 in the next 30 seconds to go up 32-26 at the half.

Latrice Johnson came out firing in the second half, nailing her first of 3 trey’s 3 minutes in.  She would finish with 10 points on 3/6 shooting from the arc.  The Lady Phins would get as close as 3 at 14 minutes on a Justice Perry putback while holding Everett to 0/5 shooting from the 3.  Abu hit a trey at 4:11 followed by 2 Johnson treys and the Phins were within 2 with two minutes left.  However, 4 personal fouls by the Phins gives Everett 4-freebie points in the waning minutes and Trojans win 61-56.

Abu led the Phins with 16 while Perry finished with 12 points along with 5 steals and 2 assists.  Bremer scored 10, adding 9 rebounds and 7 assists.  Lloyd chipped in 13 with 14 boards.

On the men’s side, the Phins leapt out to an early lead over 4-1 Everett, finding themselves up by 9 seven minutes in.  Four quick Phin personal fouls helped turn the tide, leading to a 13-4 Trojan run over the next five minutes to tie the ballgame.  Then freshman Marquis Armstead got hot, hitting 3/4 plus a and-one for 10 points to boost Shoreline to a 7-point lead.  A Skyler Kelley trey in the waning seconds of the half put SCC up 10 going into the break.  The Phin defense forced 9 turnovers, leading to 16 points in the half.

The second half was more of the same with the Phins leading by as many as 12.  Armstead went 3/6 from the 3 for 15 of his 27 points in the 2nd half.  The Phins forced 10 turnovers (19 total) en route to a 78-72 win putting them at 3-3 in league play.  Ryan Reyes finished with 19 points and 15 boards.

On Saturday the 31st, the Phins hosted the Peninsula Pirates.  On the women’s side, the Pirates came in at 5-1 in the North.  They started the game hot, going up 11 five minutes in.  The Phins battled back, cutting the lead to 4 on back-to-back 3’s by Abu & Johnson.  Strong defense held the lead to 5 going into the half.  The Phins forced XX Pirate turnovers in the first half.

In the second half, the Pirates hit three straight treys to jump out to a 17 point lead and would pull away by as many as 35.  The game would finish with a Pirate win, 70-42.  Abu finished with 11, Bremer with 14 and Johnson with 10.  Justice Perry pulled by 13 boards and Magen Lloyd grabbed 14.

Lloyd and Perry are sitting 4-5 in the overall NWAC rebounding stat leaders.  Perry also moves up to #3 in blocks, averaging 1.93 a game.  Perry and Bremer sit 8-9 on the overall steal leader lists while Bremer is #5 overall with 4.87 steals a game.

On the men’s side, the first half was back-and-forth with the biggest lead of the period being 5 by the Pirates.  Both teams shot around 30% from the field and 40% from the arc.  Shoreline led 25-22 at the break.

In the second half, the Pirates established control early, building the lead to as many as 11 with 13 minutes left.  A huge trey by Antonio Foster cut the lead to 8 before a 10-4 Pirate run put them up 15.  The Phins went 9/10 from the charity stripe over the next 2 minutes and the lead was cut to 10.  Back-to-back trey’s by Skyler Kelley and a Josh Wisnubroto jumper and the Pirate lead was a mere 2.  One last play with 7 seconds on the clock and Phin ball at the high sideline led to a forced Phin jumper and the men fell short 56-58.  Armstead finished with 21 while Kelley chipped in 12 and Reyes 10.  Adam Johnson grabbed 10 boards and both Armstead and Reyes pulled down 6 apiece.  Reyes also added 3 blocks, which put him #18 overall in the NWAC.

Johnson is still at #4 on the all-NWAC rebounding list with 9.76 per game.  Kelley drops to #12 on the 3-point percentage list and #10 for free throw percentage.
