Summer League Playoffs Round 2 Preview

Filed under: College Sports,Creighton Bluejays,Omaha Mavericks,Uncategorized — Jon Green @ 4:15 am

Round 1 went great for the Mavs as both the current team and the grads advanced.  The current Mavs face a steep challenge in the 2nd round while the grads face the “cinderella” of the tournament.

At 5:30 at Omaha Central on Thursday, the current Mavs will battle McGinn Law.  McGinn Law is one of the draft teams consisting of Bruce Chubick, Scot Abels, Charles Richardson, Joe Webb, Earl Mitchell, Chris Kuhn, Bryce Johnson, Evan Lamprecht.  Chubick played for Nebraska from 1991 to 1994… I was 7  when he finished (and so were some of the players he’ll play tomorrow I think)… yikes.  But he was a stud back then.  Scot Abels I have no clue (this is where I wish I hadn’t misplaced my rosters during my move).  Charles Richardson was a Husker from 2004-2007 who never put up gaudy numbers, but at an undersized 5’9″ was a ton of fun to watch.  Joe Webb is a two time all NAIA All American from Bellevue who put up 16 a game as a senior in 2007.  Earl Mitchell is from Alvernia college in Pennsylvania, a small D3 school. No idea on Chris Kuhn.  Bryce Johnson is a Bellevue grad as well… while Lamprecht played at Elkhorn and is now at Midland Lutheran).  The cool matchup to me is going to be Charles Richardson vs. the gaurd combo of Jenkins and Bridger.  Both will be taking him on some I imagine.  Also Bruce Chubick vs. Matt Akins.  Akins will have to play hard to hang with Chubick I imagine, but this will be a good test for him to see how he can stack up.

For the grads, the path appears to be a little easier.  Hastings College shocked the #2 seed EQ School of Hair and are into the quarterfinals.  Hastings can’t be underestimated though of course and I expect the grads to show up and take care of buisness.  They play at 7:30.

The other two games of the night feature Nebraska Kearney playing the Antoine Young led State Farm Insurance at 6:30 and PCS Phosphate (led by P’Allen Stinnett) taking on Narmi Group (led by Josh Dotzler).  That matchup is at 8:30.  I’ll take UNK (they play hard and strong) and PCS (strength of P’Allen) to advance to play the UNO teams of course… That would be a dream final 4 to me.. UNO-UNK rematch and UNO Grads taking on the most exciting Creighton player’s team… we can only hope!  Hope to see you all out there.
