Tournament Recap: 2014 Bearcat Classic

Indy EBC traveled to Cincinnati this weekend to compete in the Bearcat Classic. Our Blue team ended with a record of 4-1 claiming the Silver Bracket Championship and our Red team played hard but was unable to pull out a win.  

Statistical leaders and standout performances:

Bishop Smith: Outstanding Play this weekend showed leadership while leading the team in scoring for the weekend 14.3 ppg to go along with 4 assists per game.

Josiah Oetjen: "Shut down" drew the opposing teams scorer and ball handler and was the point man on all defensive efforts. Hit timely shots and played big when it counted.  

Mario Nalls (8 ppg /8 rpg) Noah Oetjen (9 ppg & 6 rpg), Jason Whitthorne played with his usual defensive agression but was limited with an injury. Blake Robertson contributed his usual big time 3's and instinctive defensive play throughout the tourney.  Marc Owens began to show his raw athletic potential played a significant role both offensively and defensively in our wins this weekend.  Our new players Rashonte Smith & Alex McClure also demonstrated potential that will help the Eagles to be a strong team this summer.

Adidas Tip Off Classic

Indy EBC opened up AAU tournament play this weekend at the Adidas TipOff Classic in Best Choice Fieldhouse.  Our Blue team ended with a record of 3-2  losing in the Championship game to a strong Indiana Elite-Magic team.  The Red team played tough but was unable to garner a win this week. 

Statistical leaders and standout performances:

EBC Blue pulled out two come from behind victory's, both games saw the blue team down by 18 points , with one of the games in going into OT.

Blake Robertson:  Blake was outright on "fire" hitting the 3 pointer to put us in OT and then hitting the 3 to win the game in OT ending up with 19 pts on the night.

Blake was not the only player who was deadly from the perimeter: Josiah Oetjen, Bishop Smith, Mario Nalls & Newcomer Rasonte Smith were all deadly from the arc.  Ball movement was the key in the victory.  

Neither of these games would have been won if not for the aggressive full court M2M defensive pressure that our Eagles applied. Mario Nalls, Noah Oetjen, Jason Whitthorne,  Mike Murff, Stephon Smith & Marc Owens all came through with big plays throughout the tourney. 

The Eagles due to fatigue and injury were not able to overcome Indiana Elite Magic in the Championship. However, our boys represented themselves well.  

Blue:  (3-2  Championship Runnerup)

vs Indiana Elite Magic            L   79-62

vs Indiana Legends (Orange)  W  72-69 OT
