A Ben Ball Grinder

Bruins grind out a solid win beating the Devils by a score of 60-50. Here is the AP recap. The Sun Devils came out fighting. They played with passion and gave the Bruins all they could handle in the first half. As usual though, Coach Howland made the necessary adjustments and the Bruins got the job done in the second half. Ben Ball warriors played their classic lock down defense in second half holding the Devils to just 13 total points in the period.

Here is the box score. Josh Shipp won the battle of the brothers scoring 12 points (Jarren had 8). DC led the Bruins with 16 points with some clutch 3s in the second half, when the Bruins put the game away. Luc had a monster game under the basket with 15 boards.

The Bruins still need to work on their mental mindset in the first halves of these games. They can't afford to come out in first halves so passive on defense. They need to pick up their intensity especially against good teams. They need to come out much more focused next Saturday when take on against "the Standard" of Pac-10, who are going to be a pissed off team after choking against the gap closers from x-town.

We will obviously have a lot more tomorrow. This is our post-game thread.
