Scrimmage Recap: Ralston Turner Overdrive

 

Bachman-Turner Overdrive- You Ain't Seen Nothin Yet (via GermanMatje)

B-b-b-baby you've ain't seen n-n-nothin' yet.  Seriously, we haven't seen anything yet.

I wouldn't recommend shades quite yet, but the future looks bright.  True freshmen scored 44 of the scrimmage's 96 total points.  Ralston Turner led the way with 21 followed by Matt Derenbecker's 13.  Those two were the game's scoring leaders.  Andre Stringer got 6 points on a pair of 3 point shots while Jalen Courtney got 4 points.

Ralston just looks terrific, but the others, including D-Beck, showed a few areas where they need to improve..  Derenbecker had a terrific first half, but struggled towards the end of the game.  I'd like to see him have a little more hustle, but you can tell the talent is there.  Stringer is another guy where you can really see the talent bubbling, but it took him awhile to get his shot going.  When it finally went in, it was beautiful.  His heave at the end of the half was Gordon Haywardesque in its closeness.  Jalen Courtney has a lot of strength.

Let's not judge any of these frosh right away.  Their journey is only beginning.

The most pleasant surprise of the night was Aaron Dotson, who looked better than ever, scoring 12 points, including 2-3 shooting from the arc while also dishing out 5 assists.  The Tigers will be a lot stronger with him at full speed.

Malcolm White literally ended the game with a huge backboard-bending slam.  He finished with 9 points and a game-high 9 rebounds.  Dennis Harris looked fine with 11 points and 8 rebounds, and Eddie Ludwig had 5 points and 3 rebounds.  Garrett Green was unable to score, but did get 7 rebounds.

It appears that we're going 3-guard with a starting 5 of (TBA Point Guard), Turner, Dotson, Warren and White.  Derenbecker will be backup for both Turner and Dotson, Harris will be Storm's main reserve, and Ludwig will be the main backup for White.  That's my latest guess.
