The hometown Bombers (3-9) got off to a
quick start and didn't let off the gas as they come away with
the victory over the Saukees of Pittsfield (5-8) by a score of
48-33. Macomb's Sam Allen was the only scorer in double
figures for either team, as he finished with 22 points on 6-8
from the floor and 8-8 from the free throw line.
A relatively clean game consisting of just
19 combined turnovers punctuated this 5th place semifinal.
Three point land was desolate, however, as the teams combined to
shoot only 4-23 (17%) behind the arc. Macomb attempted
more free throws (27) than field goals (25). That doesn't
seem that impressive until you compare it to Pittsfield's
counts...who attempted 12 free throws and 41 field goals.
As mentioned, Macomb had the only double digit scorer in Sam
Allen. His 22 points continued an impressive tournament
showing for the All-Tourney hopeful. Tyler Bickers had six
rebounds and Adam Farr pulled down an additional five.
Sean Winters had a team-high three assists.
Pittsfield's leading scorer was Peyton Apps, who finished with
nine points. Cade Tomhave finished with eight of his own.
Will Guthrie pulled down a team-high five rebounds. App
led the Saukees with three assists. Guthrie also swiped
four steals. Pittsfield only turned the ball over an
impressive seven times.
Macomb advances to the fifth place game Game 24 (tonight,
6:30pm) where they will play the Eagles of Liberty. The
Saukees have been eliminated from the tournament.
