I decided to start a new Kenner League thread because the previous one turned into a Pissing Match between some posters and GW players participated in tonight's(7/22) games. With all the turmoil surrounding the program now, I wasn't sure whether we would see any GW players this weekend.

The Kenner League tweeted that Yuta played for Beyond Belief and Cavanaugh played for On Point tonight. They also tweeted that Cavanaugh looked good. With all the turmoil surrounding GW now, I wasn't sure whether we would see any GW players this weekend.

Thomas, I was going to go...was looking forward to it, with the long suffering girlfriend out of town, but given what is going on off the court, combined with 100 degree temp and a 100 mile round trip from Fredericksburg, somehow I lost my motivation.

LSF,  I went to Saturaday's game and it was a mixed bag of results for GW's players. I believe Mrs. Lonergan and some of the kids attended the first 2 games today. She spoke with Goss when he came into the gym

Yuta was a no-show for Beyond Belief, so there was no GW players in the first game. Goss showed up for Hoop Magic, but no Toro. Hoop Magic only had 5 players so Goss played the entire game, he hit 1 or 2 three-pointers and ran the floor well, but he got pushed around in the paint for most of the game. Marfo also got a lot of playing time for DCX against Tombs, Marfo may have had 4 or 5 blocks, he altered a lot more shots. He never got going offensively as his guards wanted to shoot every time and he had some difficulty scoring against Govan from Georgetown. Adam Mitola suited up for Tombs, but did not get a lot of playing time. He is solidly built like his big brother and looked to be a very good passer. Higher Level only had 6 players so Jordan Roland played the entire game, he was also victimized by ball-hogging teammates. But he continues to look stronger and more athletic. There was one play in which he had a fast break with a defender on his heels, he did a ball fake to slow down the defender and the threw down a 2-handed dunk. He also got way up to throw down a 1-handed dunk off a missed shot, but he missed the dunk. We'll see if Roland's improvement translates to more production as a sophomore.

Caught the last two games between A. Wash/Clyde's (Justin Williams) and DCX/On Point (TCav, Matt Hart, and Marfo).

Justin Williams played less than half the game and didn't see much of the ball. Had a couple nice moments. I was impressed seeing him in person, he's a solidly built dude.

The second game was super ugly even by Kenner League standards. Cavanaugh and Marfo were matched up on each other which was fun to watch. Marfo struggled a little bit but he was trying to coexist with GTown's Bradley Hayes who was playing like an asshole for most of the game. Cavanaugh was Cavanugh, couple nice finishes around the bucket, couple threes. Hart looked pretty good running the floor when he got an opportunity.
