The Vegas 16 tourney has reached the semi finals and the Old Dominion Monarchs and UCSB Gauchos meet after winning their quarter finals game on Monday night.
The Gauchos have relied heavily on their defensive effort this season to carry them. Monday was no different story as they dominated the defensive end and shut NIU down en route to a quarterfinal victory.
UCSB has allowed just 68.0 points overall and 74 points per game on a neutral court as they flirted with both those numbers on Monday night. Northern Illinois shot just 39% from the field and 26% from behind the arc as the Gauchos continued to make life miserable for shooters and close out on them.
Offensively, the Gauchos overcame a tough performance by Michael Bryson, who had just 9 points on the night. They have leaned on him to be the offensive spark this year, but it was Gabe Vincent (20 points) and Sam Beeler (16 points) who were the heroes on Monday night.
Look for Bryson to play with a chip on his shoulder here as he tries to bounce back from a low point total.
Old Dominion Monarchs
Old Dominion had little problem in their Vegas 16 opening game, picking apart Tennessee Tech in a 16 point win.
The Monarchs, who average 68.7 points per game, put up a 75 spot on the Golden Eagles, shooting over 50% from the field in the win. However, it’s not the offense that has won games for Old Dominion, it’s been their defensive efforts.
This season, Old Dominion allows just 61.8 points per game and 58.2 on a neutral court. The Monarchs held the Golden Eagles to just 43% shooting. You’ll see a little bit of everything from the Monarchs on the defensive end. They will hit teams with man, zone, and even a full court press. It’s the pressure that causes a lot of problems, combined with no easy baskets around the rim.
The bench has been another key for Old Dominion and they proved that on Monday night. The Monarchs benched produced 50 of the 75 points for them.
