Monmouth Hawks vs Pittsburgh Panthers 11/18/2019
The Monmouth Hawks won their opening match against Leigh Mountain Hawks. After that, blowout after blowout happened with the team still seeking a system and identity. Ray Salnave and Deion Hammond have been the most reliable players to carry the team but their talent is just far from other players in their roster. The Hawks coaching staff need to address their defensive rotations and assignments since their points allowed has been one of the worst in the tournament. Coming to this game, Hawks are doubted to even close the gap but it would be interesting to see if they are pushing to improve or it will be a long season for them.
Players to Watch: R. Salnave (14 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 3 APG), D. Hammond (13.3 PPG, 1.8 RPG), M. Traore (5.5 PPG, 6 RPG).
The Panthers and a balanced taste of glory and defeat. While still figuring out the chinks in their armor, a game against the Monmouth Hawks seems to be a good booster for the team as they are the heavy favorites to win. Allowing players from their bench to step in and get used to the system will be helpful for them in the long run. Expect Ryan Murphy and Trey McGowens to jump off to an early lead and will sit the game early as well when the game is out of reach. Gust like Justin Champagnie should keep the momentum going as the team’s third man. Overall, this will be a blowout win that they can gain advantage from.
Players to Watch: R. Murphy (15.5 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 1.8 APG), T. McGowens (14.5 PPG, 6 RPG, 3.3 APG, 1.8 SPG), J. Champagnie (8.8 PPG, 4.5 RPG)
