Following opening night action on Wednesday, frontline targets Ben Bentil and Quadri Moore along with Chris Clover hit the court at the Reebok Breakout once again.
Bentil was much more involved in the AM on the second day, going 6-14 from the floor (0-2 3FG, 1-1 FT) to finish with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 1 block. This is the kind of performance that shows you why Jay Wright has been on him for a while.
Ben Bentil playing with sense if urgency. Has 6 first half points so far here at the @BreakoutClassic— hawkhillhardwood (@HHHardwood) July 11, 2013
In the afternoon, Bentil was really looking for his offense. A 6-14 performance from the field (1-2 3 FG) and finished with 13 points and 9 rebounds. In the evening, Bentil only played about 16 minutes and went 2-5 from the field (1-2 3 FG) in a limited outing.
Moore struggled in the morning, finishing 1-5 from the floor (0-1 3FG, 3-4 FT) for 5 points, 1 rebound and 2 blocks. His only field goal during the session? A shot that would put a letter on every other player in a game of H-O-R-S-E.
Quadri Moore drives baseline, gets caught under the basket, throws a shot over the backboard that goes in. Larry Bird-esque. Never seen that— Rob Dauster (@RobDauster) July 11, 2013
Moore went 2-3 from the field in the afternoon (4-5 FT) and grabbed 7 rebounds, while he went 3-6 from the field (1-1 3 FG) and 3 rebounds in the evening.
Jones was excellent playing against a mostly older group of players, going 7-11 from the field (0-1 3FG, 0-1 FT) to finish with 14 points, 3 rebounds and a block. Kentucky offered Jones last night, so the expected blowup has clearly happened sooner than expected.
Jones went 5-11 in the afternoon (0-1 3 FG, 2-4 FT) to go with 5 rebounds and 2 steals. In the nightcap he went 4-9 (0-2 3 FG) and had 6 rebounds and 4 assists.
Clover really stepped up his play on Thursday morning, going 5-8 from the field (2-3 3FG, 1-2 FT) to finish with 13 points to go with 2 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 block and 1 steal.
In the afternoon, Clover went 4-7 from the field (1-1 3PG) and added a rebound, while in the evening he stepped it up even further by going 7-10 (2-2 3 FG) to lead the team with 21 points.
