1st game back in Blois after the break. We played on a Tuesday and the gym was filled. The crowd was into the game cheering being loud and very supportive. We played against Poitiers which is a good team but they have been struggling as of lately. They have a very talented young player Sekou Doumbouya who is projected to be a top draft pick in the NBA he’s only 17. He is a huge with great skill set but needs a lot more work. I think he will benefit once he gets to America.
The game was back and forth. They were very aggressive and killing us in the paint. They shot 83% inside the paint during the first half. I got off to a slow start couldn’t really knock down any shots or get any rebounds. We were down at the half and really had to lock in for the second half. We came out aggressive and the stats reversed. We shot a high percentage in the paint I’m not sure of the exact percentage. I got it going in the second half getting some easy buckets and knock down some clutch free throws. While I was at the line the crowd started chanting “MVP”. That was a surreal moment for me. It has only raised my level of motivation The win brought our record to 11-3 and tied for second in the rankings.
