Intersquad Scrimmages: Bobcat Men


OK three intersquad scrimmages have been completed and only one, the Bobcat women, have yet to hold theirs. Previously this week I made it to the three that were held and thought I would let you guy’s know what my thoughts were.

Now when I go to an intersquad scrimmage I usually go to check out new players and see what if anything the returnees have added to their games. The format that I am going to use is to just comment on thing that I observed that I did not know or that surprised me about the player. For the most part I am not going to repeat what I have already written elsewhere in this blog. The other thing to keep in mind is that sometimes a player will have a bad night or they may play well above their pay rate in the scrimmages. These are impressions from a single night of basketball, actual results may vary.

General Notes:
I saw something very positive from every player on the court. There are in my opinion the top tier of 8-9 players, but after that there is a log jamb of the next 6-7 players who are all look like they could contribute next year. Redshirting is going to get interesting for Huse. The guy’s I thought might be candidates for a redshirt certainly are no longer sure things.

Did not play:
Casey Trujeque – Casey was ill and was suited up but did not play. Saw him after the game and he did not look well at all.
Ryan McIntyre- Also sat on the bench dressed up but did not play. I am not sure if he was injured or ill.
Steven Davis – Was not at the scrimmage, but did show up afterwards
Erik Rush – Technically Erik was on the floor for a few minutes but was struggling with an ankle problem and Huse pulled him.

Players (in no particular order)

Chris McCall (10 points, 3 assist): Played point guard most of the night, he is an outstanding ball handler. Quick with the dribble.

Blake Brumwell (2 points, 2 rebounds) Not afraid to throw his body around, soft touch around the basket.

Rod Singleton (2 points, 2 rebounds, 7 assist) A real leader, traffic controller, not afraid to yell at players (even Howard) if they are not in the right place on the floor.

Tor Anderson (8 points, 3 assist) Scrappy as hell. Won the “Way to go” award of the scrimmage (given out by me) as the player name I heard the most from coaches and players associated with that phrase as in “Way to go Tor”

Tre Johnson (13 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals) – We don’t get to see athletes like him in the Big Sky. Explosive.

Bobby Howard (23 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 assist) Can score anywhere on the court if given an inch. hit 3 pointers from 25′ and muscled in shots with Anderson and Budinich hanging on him.

Shawn Reid (9 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assist) Pleasant surprise of the night. Hustler, constantly in motion, and anticipates where the ball is going quite well.

Danny Piepoli (17 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assist) Instant offence, very efficient a quiet leader on the floor.

Cody Anderson (12 points, 2 rebounds) Cody is the Cody we have come to know the past two years but a little lighter and better all the way around.

Jeff Budinich (13 points 2 rebounds, 5 steals) The other big surprise of the night. Aggressive and can score the ball in a lot of different way. Defensively can really disrupt interior passing, good defensive hands.

Jourdain Allou (o points 2 rebounds) Can play and defend all three front court spots.
