Game Preview: Harper vs. Wright
- Photos (1)
After a heartbreaking loss at the buzzer to Richard J. Daley College Monday night, the Harper College men's basketball team looks to bounce back as they take on N4C foe Wilbur Wright at 7 PM.
The Hawks (9-8, 1-1 N4C) let a 14-point halftime lead slip away on Monday night and lost 67-65 to Daley. The Rams (2-11, 0-2 N4C) lost 89-85 to Harry S. Truman College at home on Monday night.
Wright topped Harper 61-59 on Feb. 9, 2013. Darious Randolph lead all scorers with 23 points for the Rams. Garett Gatz (Elk Grove Village, Ill./Conant) and Connor Miklasz (Mount Prospect, Ill./Hersey) scored 16 apiece for the Hawks.
Wright Providing a Boost
An early season injury forced Harper guard/forward Charles Wright (Cheyenne, Wyo./Cheyenne East) to miss five games, but the sophomore is now healthy and has provided a big lift for the Hawks. In his last five games, Wright is scoring 10.0 PPG to go along with 4.4 RPG.
Jamon Collins averaged a team-best 16.0 PPG in the first five games, but he has not played since. That leaves the scoring to Adonis Lema (11.6 PPG), Mike Carter (11.5 PPG) and VicPatrick Harris (9.7 PPG).
When the Hawks turn the ball over 17 or more times in a game, they are just 2-4, compared to 7-4 when they turn it over less than that amount. In Harper's last two losses (at Joliet, at Daley), they have turned the ball over a combined 47 times.
The Rams are 0-5 when they commit 17 or more turnovers.
