Defensive intensity was the name of the game when the Golden Dragons A-Team took on the CB Breakers in game-2 of the Potomac Valley Shootout. On every ball-screen, there was man hedging. On every drive to the hoop, help was there. On every shot, there was a hand to challenge and change.
On the offensive side of the ball it took a little longer for things to click. The CB Breakers stayed in the game early but it didn’t last. With 5-minute left in the 1st half the Golden Dragons went on a 16-3 run and turned a 16-13 lead into a 32-16 lead at the half.
The second half didn’t go much better for the Breakers. The Golden Dragons held the Breakers to only 12 2nd half points by dominating the offensive and defensive glass.
Lawrence Lee had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Fred Bronsted just missed one of his own by scoring 8 points and grabbing 9 boards. Nikola Maric led all the team in scoring with 11 points and also collecting 6 rebounds.
