Rich East knocks off Oak Forest in overtime

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

and John Koschnitzky was so good that I learned how to spell his name...

The trip to see Rich East sophomore Shea Sumpter was a bit of a bust. He got into foul trouble early and hardly played. The three times he touched the ball he looked decent, but it was hard to tell too much.

Rich East's sophomore point guard, Ja'Mere Dismukes, was impressive. He made some bad decisions, but overall played a very nice game. It's obvious that Fred Jacobeit trusts him to run the show. He's only 5-10 and thin, but looks like he could wind up about 6-2. He's a player to keep an eye on.

The Rockets won the game 65-63 in overtime, in front of a pretty large crowd for an early season Wednesday night game.

Oak Forest's John Koschnitzky was easily the best player on the court. He scored 28 and grabbed 10 rebounds. I was shocked by his two dunks in the fourth quarter. He didn't seem like much of an athlete initially, then all of a sudden busted through the lane for two jams in about 30 seconds.

The Bengals got down by 16 points and managed to come back and tie the game to force overtime. They were horrendous from the free throw line, possibly one of the worst team free throw shooting disasters I've ever seen, 9 for 21.

I don't think either team will showing up in the rankings any time soon, but Rich East could be a threat next season. Besides for Sumpter and Dismukes, they have 6-4 sophomore Stephen O'Neal, who looked very strong when he was on the court.

Thanks for noticing John Koschnitzky, he has been the ultimate pleasure to coach, and you saw one of his off nights. I hope to see you again soon at one of our games.

I just whanna say that Ja'Mere Dismukes is and could be one of the for the rich east rockets he plays good and look good doen it and for real yall might whanna keep an eye in him hes a star in the making love u baby Terrika Hawkins

Rich East is not a smart team. They have one of Fengers best guards and never uses him. If he decides to leave that will be a big loss. Put him in.

Fenger vs. Rich East in the Dipper

I think that Ja'Mere Dismukes is a very good player. I really believe that he is going to go far in his career. I scout him out alot at games. Keep up the good work. Please try to work harder on your shots.
