36ers 'go jumanji' on Jeonju - Sep 24, 2017

Nathan Sobey
ADELAIDE tonight survived its first real test at the Merlion Cup in Singapore, finally putting away Korea's Jeonju KCC Egis 94-72 behind an 18-point final quarter by Nathan Sobey (190-G-90, college: Wyoming). Sobey finished with 20 points and was Batman to Mitch Creek (195-F/G-92)'s Superman, who came off the bench for game highs in points (27 at 79 per cent) and rebounds (11). The plucky Jeonju outfit gave the 36ers their first real test of the tournament - appropriate for a semi final - but could not stop Adelaide from keeping its playoff appointment with defending champion Shanghai Sharks in tomorrow's final. The final scoreline gave no hint of the contest it was for three torrid quarters before the Sixers unleashed their decisive 36-17 final period. Clinging to a hard-won 58-55 lead with a quarter to complete, the 36ers' relentless game-long pressure finally cracked the Koreans' resolve. Creek opened the term with a three-point play before Sobey threw down the first of three super-powered dunks for the quarter. In between, he hit consecutive 3-pointers as Adelaide ran all over Jeonju with nine points in 90 seconds. Sobey's putback slam dunk with 3:11 left would have brought fans at Titanium Security Arena out of their seats but even drew huge appreciative gasps from the polite crowd at OCBC Arena. Adelaide went into the game down import power forward Ronald Roberts (203-F-91, college: St.Joseph's, agency: Pensack Sports) who hurt his knee against Singapore Slingers and is questionable for tomorrow's final. That put enormous pressure on Daniel Johnson (210-C/F-88, college: Pepperdine) and Matt Hodgson (211-C-91, college: St.Mary's, CA), going head-to-head with 221cm Seung-Jin Ha (221-C-85), a 2004 draft pick by the Portland Trail Blazers and still the only South Korean to ever play in the NBA. Johnson fouled out and had a frustrating night generally, but Hodgson put together a double-double with 13 points at 86 per cent and 10 boards. Jeonju sat in a zone all night and challenged Adelaide's ball movement, interior passing and ability to consistently hit perimeter shots. Having scouted Adelaide's relentless upcourt pressure, it also moved the ball quickly and often successfully. "We knew we had to execute our D and move the ball on offence," import playmaker Shannon Shorter (193-G-89, college: N.Texas) (14 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals) said. Creek had 16 points and six rebounds at halftime but the Koreans refused to relent, moving the ball with a plan against the 36ers' extended pressure. Jeonju's passing was the perfect counter and resulted in numerous fast-break baskets which only served to further embolden the Korean crew. The Sixers knew they were in for a contest right from the get-go when Kyochang Song stuck a jumper, then a finger-roll before Ha stuck two free throws. Inserted into the game, Creek immediately got the offence ticking, the score tied at 6-6 and order restored. With Sobey feeding Creek on consecutive plays, the lead was on its way to 21-13 before Sejin Park scored against the press to make it a six-point game at the first break. Creek kept Adelaide ahead at 24-19 before a tip-in by Ha and a jumper by Hyunmin Lee reinforced the Koreans were playing high on self-belief. A 3-pointer by Chang Young Song gave Jeonju back the lead and a three by Lee made the bulge 33-29. It was further clear at 39-34 before Hodgson and Creek trimmed it to 38-39 at halftime. As Ramone Moore (193-G-89, college: Temple, agency: Two Points) began to assert himself, Adelaide took back the lead before successive threes again had the Koreans excited, ahead 45-40. Moore enjoyed a 10-point quarter though as the 36ers maintained their pressure to be 58-55 clear at the last break. Then it was Sobey and Creek time, the latter with 11 points in the run home as Jeonju ran out of options. "That was probably the fright we needed to have," Sixers chairman Grant Kelley said. The last quarter made it "fright night" for Jeonju instead.

Should American Players Go To Australia Instead Of College? - 1 day ago
There has long been a debate in the sports world about what young players should be allowed to do to advance their prospective careers. Some believe that they should be able to go straight to the NBA from high school, and some think they should have to wait a year or more before going pro. But, while the current rules prohibit players from joining the NBA without at least a year of experience elsewhere, shouldn't players looking to wait one year before joining the league consider playing...   [read more]
