Who Would Have Thought, No Offence

Crocs fans may not believe this, but it was our offense that let us down in our clash against the Gold Coast Blaze in Mackay. Going down 88-75, offensive continuity will probably be on order this week at practice.

Leading 50-47 at half time,who would have thought scoring 25 points in the second half would be the let down for the Crocs. It all started in the third quarter where we troubled the scoreboard for six points. Turnovers and bad shot selection were the problem here.

While it is hard to criticise our defense, it was Daniel Joyce that opened up the game in the third quarter nailing four threes. This game really lacked offensive spark so this barrage of bombs from young Joyce was enough spark to guide the Blaze to victory.

For the Crocs, Galon Young produced a double double (17pts,10rebs), while three others reached double figures in points.

The good news for the Crocs is both seven footers, Pepper and Vanderjagt, should be back this week. Also joining them at practice this week should be swing man Brad Sheridan. All have been missing for a period of time due to injury.

It is only ten days until our first game so practice time is going to be important as we are done with our preseason games.

***Hopefully my stats guru Rohan Short can provide a boxscore and I have some lite hearted video footage to download of our plane flight to Mackay.
