Team Scarlet & Gray Knocked Out Of TBT By Team Fredette

It wasn’t supposed to happen this way, but in the end the squad that Team Scarlet & Gray brought to Atlanta ran into a bad matchup against Team Fredette.

In a bit of a surprise, Jared Sullinger found a way to get back to the team after getting married a day early, but it wasn’t enough — even with an ability to limit Jimmer Fredette’s effectiveness, as Team Fredette blew the doors off Team S&G 100-78.

Ouch. Who saw that coming?

Where this game was lost was on the perimeter. Team Scarlet & Gray had no answer and ability to close out on the sharpshooters and guard play for Team Fredette. That in combination with the inability to take care of the ball on offense limited the effectiveness of a perceived advantage in the post.

And as the game got away, Team S&G got into a mode of forcing things that weren’t there and got out of its game-plan. To Team Fredette’s credit, it never got away from moving the ball, executing and salting the game away.

What we’ll have to see now is if this team stays together to try and make another run next year. Losing two years in a row, and going out in such embarrassing fashion has a way of resetting things.
