Misc thoughts:

Both TWP and Spot like to get it up and down. Both teams are dominated by guard play. Both teams had some tough losses.

Tyler Crespo, 5’9” sn, hit 1000 points as a jn. earlier in the year. He is a special talent. He is coming off a career high game of 37 pts vs. Lebanon.

Spot has a high scoring guard in Jordan Shewbridge. Jordan can drive and pop the 3 ball with the best of them.

Spot will mix some different defenses, but they are primarily a man team. They will throw a ¾ court trap. TWP will use a packed in man with some pressure on the ball.

Spot is very fast on both the defensive end and offensive end.

TWP has a stronger inside game.

Can TWP control the boards and score off of offensive boards?
Can Spot get up early and spread out TWP on the offensive end?
Which sets of guards will be better on the offensive end?
Which team will have the fewest turnovers?
