Pilots vs LMU : Game Notes

By Wally Jeter

The Pilots once again started strong and didn't let up until the final buzzer. Reveno decided to throw numerous defenders at LMU's Anthony Ireland all night and not only was he locked down on offense he pretty much shot his team out of the game (3-17 fgs). Korey Thieleke was most noticeably tough on Ireland, playing real physical defense (literally shoving and running into him numerous times), not to mention what looked like some serious trash talk especially after a big dunk by Thieleke. Bryce Pressley was injured in the first half and didn't return for the second half. Bobby Sharp picked up the slack by scoring 14 points (4-5 3-pt fgs). Big game for Bobby tonight! The rest of the big 3 chipped in with sold nights and they just seemed to coast through this one. Big confidence building win tonight for UP, I was a little worried they might let the Gonzaga win go to their heads. Obviously, that did not happen.
