50-16 second half was really impressive. When the Cats get to their style of play they can beat almost anyone.Really physical game in the first half, struthers just wore girard down and got some shots to fall. There was a lid on the rim in the first half.
Teams got the message to play slowdown versus the Cats. And it does tend to keep them in the game rather than get blown out.
I watched that game on YSN Live. They were in control a good part of the game, at one point being up by 13, 37-24. SR started slowly getting back in the game at that point. But give Girard credit, they didn't lose their composure at the end and hung on for the win.Seems like Struthers has to play a fast pace, or it frustrates them. With their talent, they should be able to play any style.
What a win for Girard. I was not sure if they could win a game like that, but they proved me wrong. I didn't attend, but word is they controlled most of the game, and look like they are figuring some things out. Hopefully they stay competitive for the rest of the year.
