Game 85 - vs. AED's|
In the finale to Os Season 10, the Os put up a good fight against AED's. Playing some of the better defense in Os history, the Os hung close through the first half. The Os were able to pressure AED's in to several turnovers, and the Os did not give up many easy shots or fast break opportunities. By halftime, the Os were only down 16-10.
Unfortunately, the 10 points and poor shooting were emblematic of how the Os played the game. They went scoreless through the first few minutes of the second half, and although they had many open shots, the shots were just not going down. Ultimately, the Os were able to stay close, but could never make the run they needed to get back into the game.
The Os managed to set a new team low for field goal percentage (10.7%?!!?). On the other hand, they tied a team high by making 9 free throws, shooting an impressive 60%. None of the Os had memorable shooting performances, but the Giant played a nice game inside, with 14 rebounds and 3 blocks. However, the O-phy voting came down to a duel between Steve-O and E-Bomb (although other votes included "I'm not voting," Charmaine, "Ryan M. Hofteig, he's hot"). E-Bomb took home the award due to his 5 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists. Insiders speculate that Steve-O (5 points, 6 rebounds) may have been able to win had it been revealed earlier that he showed up and played on his and Kirsten's 8th anniversary. Bravo!
