UNCG vs The Citadel


Keyshaun Langley

5-7 FG (2-4 3PT), 5-5 FT, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block, 3 steals, 2 turnovers. Career-high 17 pts for Key. Remember folks, he’s still a freshman.

Isaiah Miller

6-15 FG (1-2 3PT), 2-6 FT, 3 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals, 1 turnover. Zay missed a Sportscenter dunk late in the 2nd half which would have rocked the crowd senseless. It was still beautiful to watch.

James Dickey

JD Only played 12 minutes due to foul trouble. He eventually fouled out. 0-2 FG, 2-4 FT, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 blocks, 1 steal, 1 turnover. If JD wants to break the rebounding record, he’s got to be more careful on defense or he won’t stay in the game long enough to get rebounds.

Kyrin Galloway

5-7 FG (4-5 3PT), 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block, 1 steal. Kyrin scored 3 threes to start the game, keeping us even with The Citadel as they also rained threes.

Kaleb Hunter

4-11 FG (1-6 3PT), 4-8 FT, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block, 1 steal. Kaleb’s FTs are usually a foregone conclusion. He was off from both 3-point and FT range tonight.

Angelo Allegri

1-7 FT (0-5 3PT), 2-3 FT, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 turnover. Gelo was also off from beyond the arc. Seemed like every shot hit the back of the rim.

Big Mo

2-5 FG, 0-1 FT, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block.

Malik Massey

2-6 3PT, 2-2 FT, 3 assist.

Bas Leyte

3-4 3PT, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal in 11 mins. I think this was Bas’ best game of his career.

Kobe Langley

1-1 FG, 1 rebound, 1 assist, 2 steals, 2 turnovers in 9 mins. Kobe’s getting his playing feet under him.

Michael Hueitt Jr

Played 3 mins — 1 rebound. Still recovering from the flu.

Khyre Thompson – Did not play.

Ryan Tankelewicz – Did not play.

We’ve got Samford at home Sunday, and honestly, I expect a 30-point blowout and another 15-turnover difference. Still, it will be a fun game to watch because Josh Sharkey is a player. Watching him against Isaiah/Keyshaun/Kobe will be interesting.
