Steve Smith vs Rushford-Peterson

It wasn't really five-on-one; the final stat line just looked that way. Smith's teammates came to play (save for Dalton Stoen who was on the bench in street clothes). They even went into the break tied with the Trojans at 18. Then R-P ratcheted up their one-three-one-trap. The good news for the Cougars was; they made there first four second half shots. The bad news was; it took eight minutes to do so and R-P's defense forced eight turnovers in that same span. Resultantly, the visiting Trojans jumped ahead on the scoreboard 34-27. They jumped ahead for good; 56-42 was the final. Smith was, as usual, M-C's workhorse. He tallied 32 points (and 14 rebounds) just twenty-four hours after scoring 30 (versus Leroy-Ostrander). That's quite the day's (plus an hour) work. R-P got 21 from Nick Thompson, 15 from Trent Vix (all in the second half), and 10 from Ben Krambeer, or about the norm from the usual suspects. Contrasting styles: R-P shot 32 three-pointers (including their first eight shots of the game), M-C shot zero.
