Weekend Surf Report – Feb 2, 2015

|  THE SURF REPORT | SHORELINE, WASHINGTON | ISSUE 7 | VOLUME 1  |

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.
