North’s roster included senior guards Jason Bohannon and Trevon Hughes as well as junior forward Keaton Nankivil and redshirt freshman guard/forward Ryan Evans.Nankivil led White with a game-high 13 points while shooting 5-of-8 from the field and 2-for-3 from beyond the arc. The Madison native also added seven rebounds.Bohannon also scored in double digits for White, adding 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting and 2-for-3 on 3-point attempts. He also dished out a pair of assists.The star of the game, however, was Evans.Rocking a Fresh Prince-esque flat top hairstyle after sitting out all of the 2008-09 season, the Phoenix native stole the show with seven points and eight rebounds, including a pair of impressive dunks in the second half.“I’m a little more old school at heart, so it’s something I like to do,” Evans said of his look. “Just being able to play with my team, being able to get out there and run, being able to see the floor again — it felt real good.”North was happy to see success out of Evans for his White squad, as well as several other young players.“Ryan played well, and he’s been playing well in practice,” North said. “It’s nice for people to see (Jared) Berggren and Ryan and some of the guys they haven’t had a chance to see.”Evans’ eight rebounds were a game-high, an impressive statistic for a player listed at just 6-foot-6 going up against 7-footer Ian Markolf and the 6-foot-10 Berggren.The rebounds came because of Evans’ effort on the court Sunday, something Ryan expects of all his players.“Well, he’s here on scholarship to play basketball; why wouldn’t he hustle?” Ryan said of Evans. “That’s what our guys do. … He’s a guy that’s so raw, and I don’t know what it’s going to be like this year, but down the road, Ryan Evans has a great chance of contributing to the team.”On the other side, Stricker’s Red squad was led by sophomore guards Rob Wilson and Jordan Taylor as well as juniors Tim Jarmusz and Jon Leuer at guard and forward, respectively.And while the world’s No. 3 golfer was happy with the players on his roster, he was not around when the teams were chosen.“It’s always tough to lose to Andy, but we didn’t get any calls — that’s what I’m going to blame it on,” Stricker said. “But he picked the team that he wanted to coach before I even got here, so I don’t think that’s too fair.”Wilson, who was 4-of-11 from the field, including 2-for-3 from long distance en route to a team-high 10 points, led the Red team offensively.Jarmusz, Berggren and Leuer also contributed to the Red offensive attack, adding seven, six and five points, respectively. Leuer and Jarmusz each added a three-pointer for Red, which went 4-for-11 from beyond the arc in the game.Leuer struggled from the floor, though, hitting just 2-of-12 shots and 1-of-5 from three-point range. He still played 34 minutes in the game, tying Nankivil for a game high.As a result of the loss, Stricker lost the bet between he and North.“He just said you owe me dinner at the end,” Stricker said. “I don’t know how that worked, but it was a gas. We had a good time. Gary (Close) wanted me to call a play (but) I couldn’t pull the trigger; I couldn’t come up with anything.”North’s coaching style was similar, but he argued it was his occasional insight that helped White come out on top.“I just tried not to get a technical; I managed not to get a technical this year,” North said. “We talked over some strategy, (and) it worked out well, look at the scoreboard.”last_img read more

Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Four nights ago, the Staples Center crowd literally cheered the prospect they believed might replace Rajon Rondo.On Monday night, Rondo felt that warmth himself – against all odds.The 33-year-old point guard showed deep-shooting prowess and just enough of his vintage touch finishing around the rim for a 23-point effort that helped pace the Lakers (40-12) in a 125-100 victory over the Phoenix Suns (21-33).Rondo’s 9-for-13 shooting night gave him a season-high 23 points to go with six assists. He was so hot, as he shot his fourth and final 3-pointer of the night in the fourth quarter, audible gasps of anticipation hissed for a shooter who is hitting just a third of his attempts this season. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The oft-criticized point guard went on a one-man rally in the second quarter, knocking back an 8-0 run with a pair of 3-pointers and a finger-roll layup. The Suns gave him ample room at the 3-point line, and he looked comfortable enough hitting his wide-open looks from deep.By the end of his 14-minute first-half stint, Rondo had totaled 15 points and three assists, the Lakers were up by 11, and the crowd – which had given him a few boos as recently as the last home game – politely applauded as he checked out.Vogel said he expected Rondo could have more of these gems in him as the Lakers ramp up to the playoffs.“He’s a savvy vet – he’s someone who’s going to rise to the occasion,” he said. “Guys in their thirties, 82 games, they’re going to have some nights when you don’t look as spry as you did when you were early in your twenties, but when it matters, he’s gonna be there for us.”It happened on a night when the Lakers, who had lost three of their last four at Staples, needed some support. LeBron James had a relatively forgettable game, requiring 16 shots to score 17 points and having just one fewer turnover (eight) than his assist total (nine). It was the third straight game James has had at least six turnovers, an unseemingly companion to a night when he completed impressively difficult outlet passes to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Davis.The Suns were far from playing with a full deck: Aron Baynes, Dario Saric and Frank Kaminsky were already out, and DeAndre Ayton was ruled out hours before tip-off. Phoenix was left playing with Cheick Diallo as its starting center.The Suns felt the crush of the Lakers’ size, as the home team grabbed 30 more rebounds. Phoenix was also outscored in the paint 58-38. Dwight Howard had another double-double (14 points, 15 rebounds), Kyle Kuzma brought energy off the bench (nine points, eight rebounds, four assists), and Avery Bradley continued a hot shooting streak (3 for 4 from deep, 12 points).But the biggest problem was the disappearance of Devin Booker, who found himself shrouded by Lakers’ defenders throughout the evening. The All-Star snub who averages nearly 27 points per game was just 2 for 11 from the field for 10 points.Related Articlescenter_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“We’ve been on him to shoot those shots, be aggressive,” All-Star forward Anthony Davis said. “And he showed you all he can do tonight, he does it all the time in practice and we understand that he wants to get guys involved but it’s only going to open up the floor to get guys involved the more aggressive he is.”He led an effort in which the Lakers’ bench outscored the undermanned Suns bench, 62-36. Davis led all scorers with 25 points and added 10 rebounds and five assists to finish walloping Phoenix for the Lakers’ second win in a row.Rondo has been the most divisive Lakers player among fans, particularly during slumps that have dragged out over the last two months. On social media, screaming for a reduction in his minutes has reached a fever pitch, even as Coach Frank Vogel has supported him and kept his role the same. Rondo’s enigmatic demeanor has added a little fuel to the fire – even on Monday night after his biggest game in a month, he declined to speak to the media.It felt like a potential tipping point Thursday when Lakers owner Jeanie Buss hosted Darren Collison, the former UCLA star who was mulling a comeback from his surprising retirement last summer. In a surreal moment, Collison’s image flashed across the jumbotron and was summarily celebrated by the crowd, knowing a potential recruit was making a decision – potentially claiming the backup point guard role that has so far been Rondo’s.In the ensuing days, Collison has decided to stay retired. Rondo decided to get going against Phoenix. “You try to limit his touches, try to limit his rhythm shots and hopefully he doesn’t get it going early,” said Danny Green, who drew the challenge of slowing one of the league’s most prolific scorers. “That wasn’t just me, it was a collective effort. JaVale (McGee) was great at the rim, protecting the rim and making sure he didn’t get anything easy at the basket or in the paint. I just made sure he didn’t get great looks behind the arc.”The Lakers won their 40th game of the season before the All-Star break, something the franchise hadn’t done since the 2009-10 season.James passed another milestone in the third quarter, becoming No. 5 among the NBA’s all-time leaders in made free throws, passing Michael Jordan (7,327). No. 4 is Oscar Robertson with 7,694.The Lakers have just one game to go before the All-Star break, a road game at Denver. They hope to validate their early season vision that the players within their locker room are all they need – even the ones who fans are fickle with have some good nights to give.“We knew when we put this team together, we felt like we was a championship team as soon as we put the team together,” Davis said. “So we still have that confidence in our players, we’ve just got to get back to doing the things we do, get back to playing defense like we did tonight and we’ll be fine.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers last_img read more
