Live Blogging The Wizards-Bighorns Game

Just in case anyone is looking to read a live blog of the Wizards-Bighorns game at 8:30 on a Wednesday... I need a life!

  • Vance started out struggling!  Starting lineups got him confused
  • QUICK bucket for Antonio "My Favorite" Meeking
  • Mo Baker started the game with a 12 foot airball
  • Meeking's got range?  Swished a LONG 3-pointer
  • Reno is out to a 9-0 lead in the first three minutes -- Lucky they're not in Bismarck, where the crowd stands until the first Wizards basket
  • Renaldo Major breaks the seal with a free-throw, but missed the second
  • 9-9 at 7:20... Two 9-0 run's so far!

Click to continue reading if you want to see my other bullets, otherwise...

See you tomorrow, hopefully to watch Scott Roth, Deane Martin, and listen to Vance Palm with the Bakersfield connection!

  • D-Fender's coach Dan Panaggio just walked by VP.  Panaggio has caught both Wizards-Reno games this season in person
  • Major vs Damone Brown -- Might be the two longest players in the D-League
  • At the first mandatory, the Wizards lead 13-12
  • Any way we can get more than 6 commercials? Can we just let Vance talk during these breaks?  Model his scarf, if nothing else?
  • Renaldo had 5 points by the first timeout.  If they're picking the player of the game by the first quarter again tonight, I'll give it to him!
  • Richard Hendrix showed some nice moves before he airballed a hook shot.  Would have been real nice if he hadn't started his post moves at the 3-point line
  • Rod Benson is in the game. I think he blogs
  • "Ahearn tried to get Russell Robinson to jump in the popcorn machine" -- Vance Palm
  • Mo Baker is fast
  • Russell Robinson is bleeding after getting caught in the mouth by Blake Ahearn.  Stay out of his way!
  • Michael Douglas, the Bighorns athletic trainer, is wearing a suit and tie.  Ray Hall, the Wizards athletic trainer, is wearing a long sleeve polo and green pants
  • 18-16 Wizards with 2:53 left in the first
  • Brad Stricker's in the game!
  • Vance Palm just mentioned dial-up... Don't think they have that anymore.
  • Stricker shot free-throw's.. LOVE his tat's
  • Reno's guys wear high socks... Looks funny
  • David Bell with the long two... Such a sweet stroke lately
  • Brad Stricker just tackled someone!
  • Dave Noel is different than David Noel -- How long do you think he's went by Dave?  Since David went to UNC?
  • 24-21 Reno at the end of the 1st
  • Blake Ahearn hasn't turned the ball over yet... CALL HIM UP!
  • Between Rod Benson and Richard, as Vance prefers to call him, they have six boards... These guys could be forces this year on the boards!
  • Majic Dorsey is dropping dimes!
  • Vance just said Carlos English v. Dorsey is a great guard matchup... WHAT!? Carlos English... Great... WHAT?!
  • Wow, just like that, English threads the needle to get Hendrix wide open under the basket
  • Hendrix just picked up another easy dunk courtesy of Hendrix
  • Jawann McClellan just took the LeBron James' patented"crab dribble", then missed the lay-up
  • Jesse Smith and Brad Stricker should become bouncers somewhere. Or a professional wrestling tag team. Or something where they need to be intimidating
  • Carlos English can shoot?
  • Meeking can move
  • Pat Ewing with a long-range 3
  • Just got a report that Hendrix went to the locker room... Details coming as I get them!
  • Since when does Meeking have range?
  • Benson missed the "underneath thebackboard lay-up"
  • Will Frisby with the Rim Rocker!
  • Frisby still doing work!
  • STILL...
  • Dave Noel is the game's leading scorer with 14 points
  • Major with a nice buzzer beater... from about 7 feet, and 20 feet in the air!
  • Wizards are shooting just 37% at halftime and have been outrebounded by six
  • Wizards don't have anyone in double figures going into the break
  • Former Wizard in this game include Andre Patterson
  • Darvin Ham Slamwich is the halftime guest
  • Wizards still have just 3 turnovers... Only thing keeping them in this game so far
  • Blake Ahearn gave Darvin "the Robert Horry"
  • Do Majic's teammates call him Majic?
  • ALLEY OOPS... From Noel to Damone
  • Hendrix with a sloppy foul
  • Reno is up 61-48
  • This stuff is gross
  • Damone Brown's stroke is pretty
  • Offensive goaltending's have not been being called at the showcase
  • The green trim on these jersey's is growing on me!
  • Majic is getting HOT!
  • Blake with the answer!
  • 71-59 with 5:49 left in the 3rd
  • Brad Stricker is a great passer
  • When did Meeking decide he has range?!
  • Ahearn shoots free throws good
  • Major SHOOK Smith, easily
  • AIRBALL by Thomas... He went from swishing a 3 to an airball
  • Stricker works hard on the pick and roll
  • According to my favorite D-League GM (GET WELL SOON!), Renaldo Major would make a great free safety!
  • Stricker with a GREAT assist off the pick and roll
  • Stricker! Sign him up! Any team need a 7 foot, 300 pound big man that can create in the air and dominate on the pick and roll?  SIGN HIM UP!
  • 85-80 Reno... Wizards making a run
  • Major's got 18, but five fouls... Player of the game?
  • Big shoutout to Ashley Dawson... Way to keep VP on his toes!
  • If Pat Ewing hustles, you can bet the call is going to go his way... seems he gets a couple questionable calls
  • Brad Stricker with a monster two handed block... MAN CRUSH
  • Brad Stricker with great hustle, great assist!
  • Damone Brown = Gazelle-like
  • Brad Stricker = Giselle-like
  • Vance just referred to Damone as DB... That belongs to David Bell... If not him, then David Bailey!
  • Hendrix and Frisby are GREAT at setting picks
  • Blake's got 21 points and 0 turnovers.  I think he read the blog yesterday!
  • I hate the Womanizer song!
  • Pat Ewing blew the dunk? Wait... He made it!
  • Mo Baker... Feelin it!
  • I love watching Richard Hendrix exert his muscle
  • No calls in the lane again tonight...
  • Cancel that... Pat Ewing just got called for a loose-ball on the other end
  • Hendrix needs to work on his free throws! Yikes!
  • 103-97 with 3:31 left in the game.. Wizards going to need a comeback!
  • No matter how many assists Blake has, he's going to have nearly as many turnovers.. Luckily for Coach Ticknor, Ahearn's only got 2 assists tonight!
  • I sure hope Vance isn't doing the music too!
  • Pat Ewing with a great block on a Blake Ahearn jump shot... He's better than I thought he was
  • Will Frisby with a costly turnover!
  • McClellan is a chubbier Major... with worse free-throw shooting
  • 106-102 Reno
  • Vance is doing the Bakersfield game tomorrow... Hope to blog that one!
  • I would like to thank Amanda Collins, Minnesota Timberwolves Intern, for feeding me some great blogging ideas tonight...
  • Damone Brown with a dagger 3-point shot!
  • Mo Baker... COUNT IT!
  • Brad Stricker posing in the background
  • Duane Ticknor is LIGHTING QUICK calling timeouts
  • Blake Ahearn finished the game with 25 points, 2 turnovers... GREAT JOB!
  • Will Frisby -- 10 points, 10 boards, 6 fouls
  • Damone Brown was the player of the game! 21 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 assists (Yet was called an unselfish guy...?)
  • Wizards shot 4-for-18 from 3.. Ouch!
