Holdridge sparks Parchment to win over Pennfield

Wednesday, December 15, 2004

Alex Wolf scored 19 points and Ben Holdridge and Austin Patton added 17 apiece to keep Parchment perfect on the season with a 73-62 Kalamazoo Valley Association victory over Battle Creek Pennfield Tusday night.

Pennfield pulled out to an early double-digit lead in the first quarter, before Holdridge came off the bench to provide a spark for Parchment (3-0, 2-0 KVA). He canned a pair of 3-pointers on his first two attempts from the floor and finished with eight of his points in the first quarter.

"(Pennfield) came out in the triangle-and-two defense," Parchment coach Larry Bailey said. "But we brought in Holdridge from the bench and he hit those shots and made them change their defense. It opened it up for us." Ryan Penny and Millard Hale each tossed in 19 points to lead Pennfield (2-1, 1-1 KVA).

Coach T comments: Solid performances from everyone. Good intensity level throughout the game and it was nice to see the PHS gym rocking with a good turnout of students and community members. Ben was HUGE again! He made a layup in the first quarter and I swear he jumped right OVER the top of the defender. Richie with another rock solid peformance. I especially liked the way he was attacking the basket down the stretch. Mitch brought some quality minutes, and the big fella, "silky smooth" Alex S., aka Big Easy, took care of the dirty work inside boxing out (take a lesson everyone), drawing some offensive fouls, and in general, frustrating the heck out of Pennfield's interior players. I also want to give the bench players props for showing a lot of enthusiasm throughout the game and keeping their teammates pumped up. Hey, and don't forget to stop by the concession stand during the JV games to visit me!!

Coach T's TATI(take on areas to improve): Hey, there's always areas for improvement, right? The O end looked pretty solid. Good ball movement. Occassionally someone would put their head down and dribble to much but all in all good solid O. The D needs some work though. Pennfield got WAY to many layups in the first half beating our players on back door cuts and we also gave Pennfield way to many open look 3's. When we are running our 1-3-1 or 1-2-2 nobody should ever get an open look from 3 land, right? You can't afford to double down if it means you aren't able to recover after the post player kicks the ball out. Quicker on D. Quick quick quick.
