Playing its sixth game in six days, Sacramento State shot just .314 (22-for-70) from the field on the way to a 70-63 loss to Egypt's national team in the sixth round of the 38th-annual William Jones Cup in Taiwan. The Hornets will get a much deserved day of rest on Friday before returning to play their final two games of the nine-day tournament against Chinese Taipei A on Saturday at 4 a.m. PDT and Japan on midnight PDT Saturday/Sunday. Sacramento State (2-4) rested a number of players today because of the grueling schedule as three key players - guards Marcus Graves and Izayah Mauriohooho-Le'afa, and forward Nick Hornsby - did not play. In addition, forward Justin Strings and center Eric Stuteville played limited minutes. Guard George Dancer (6'3''-G) (knee) and swingman Chibueze Jacobs (hamstring) have not during the tournament because of injury. Sacramento State suited up just nine players in today's game. The Hornets started guards Jeff Wu (6'2''-G) and Jiday Ugbaja (5'11''-PG), swingman Grant Dressler (6'6''-G/F), forward Joshua Patton and center James Herrick in today's game. Egypt, who improved to 3-3 with the victory, outscored the Hornets in each of the first three quarters, and held a 30-24 halftime lead. Trailing by 12 points, true freshman Matt Battaglia (6'0''-PG) hit 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions, sparking a run that got the Hornets to within three points of Egypt's lead with four minutes left in the third. However, Egypt closed the third quarter on a 10-2 run and held a 50-39 advantage entering the fourth. Sacramento State would cut the deficit to four points late in the fourth quarter, but Egypt buried a desperation 3-pointer with three minutes to play to help ice the game. Egypt went to the free throw line 37 times, compared to just 16 trips to the charity stripe for the Hornets. Egypt knocked down just 23 of those attempts from the stripe (.622), but converted on seven more freebies than Sacramento State which proved to be the difference in the game. The Hornets converted on 14-of-16 attempts (.875) from the stripe. The Hornets, who had just three turnovers in the second half, held a 44-43 advantage in the rebounding department, and outscored Egypt, 24-20, in the fourth quarter. Sacramento State finished the game shooting .314 (22-70) from the field and .263 (5-19) from the 3-point line. Egypt shot .382 (21-55) from the floor and .227 (5-22) from beyond the arc. Three Hornets scored in double figures, comprised of Battaglia (15 points, 5-of-6 shooting, 3-of-3 from long distance), Wu (14 points) and Strings (12 points and nine rebounds in 21 minutes). Patton had eight points and seven rebounds, Dressler finished with seven points and a team-best 10 rebounds, and Stuteville finished with three points and six rebounds in 16 minutes. Herrick added five rebounds in 11 minutes, and Ugbaja finished with four points, two rebounds and two assists. Records for each of the nine teams at the tournament are listed below. Every team listed is a national team except the Philippines and the Hornets. Puerto Rico (5-0), Iran (3-2), South Korea (3-2), Japan (3-2), Chinese Taipei A (3-2), Egypt (3-3), Chinese Taipei B (2-3), Sacramento State (2-4) and India (0-6).

The MaJic Touch: Daryl Dorsey continues to shine - 10 days ago
GHASSANBASKET | JANUARY 29, 2018 Few athletes are truly unique, changing the way their sport is played with their singular skills. Daryl "Magic" Dorsey is one of them. Just how good a basketball player is Dorsey? So good, perhaps, that future generations of hoop fans may see that he was the modern day point guard 10 years ago -- just to watch MaJic play in person instead of watching him only on highlight reels is a site to see. If we used NBA comparisons he is what Jason Williams was t...   [read more]
