Mr Offensive Rebound Kelly Beidler Blocks And Rebounds MBC Past The Fraport Skyliners 71-68 - Oct 11, 2012

Kelly
Beidler

Every once in a while, you have that special player that escapes the radar of teams and basketball experts like an Air France jet over the Bermuda triangle. Back in the 2007-2008 Beko BBL season, there was a big strong 198cm center from New York named Jason Boone who made the rapid jump from the Regionaliga team Lok Bernau to Beko BBL team BG Goettingen. Head coach John Patrick noticed his hidden talent and the rest is history as the big man reached three playoffs in four seasons in the university city and won the 2010 Eurochallenge. Not every player can make that rapid jump up three leagues like Boone did. It takes some players longer as this season there is an American playing for the Mitteldeutscher BC who played Regionaliga in 2009 for BG Leitershofen and passed through the PRO B, PRO A and now is in the Beko BBL. He helped Leitershofen move to the PRO B and last season was one of the top players in the PRO A for the Kirchheim Knights where he averaged 17,2ppg and 8,6rpg. Uskoski who hails from Washington and played in the NAIA for Rocky Mountain has arrived in the Beko BBL not producing the numbers he did in the lower leagues, but has been a spark off the bench as he was a force under the boards in the late going in the thrilling 71-68 MBC win on the road against the Fraport Skyliners. Americans Kelly Beidler (199-F-88, college: Mt.St.Mary's) and Sharaud Curry stole the show scoring a combined 37 points, but Uskowski was solid scoring eight points and grabbing six rebounds. His teammates laud the American in the highest tone. He is a key player for us. When he gets hot from outside than he can hurt you. He opens up the floor, keeps fighting defends well, goes hard for rebounds and is just a team player, stressed Virginia Beach native Kelly Beidler. MBC manager Martin Geisler had a sparkle in his eyes when the name Uskoski was mentioned. Uskowski reached every level and was always the best player . He really has seen it all. He is so thankful that he can play at this level and you notice it by how often he always says thank you. I think that he can play at this level. It is a learning process. He has always palyed in small gyms and he still has to get used to playing in the bigger arenas. He just needs to not show so much respect and turn off the nervousness which he has at times. He didnt hide from anyone in the lower leagues and why should he now. We should not expect wonders, but he should just play his game. He will always give 100%, warned Martin Geisler.

The Fraport Skyliners came into the game with a record of 1-1 and wanted to reward their fans with a victory in the Fraport arena. The Fraport Skyliners gave their fans a very exciting game, but the only thing missing at the end was a little luck and possibly a call which might have swung the game around. The Mitteldeutscher BC led for the most part of the game except for a very brief period at the start of the game and in the third quarter as Larry Wright gave the Fraport Skyliners their only lead with a huge three pointer. MBC head coach Silvano Poropat was relaxed at the end of the game and the only thing missing was a cigar as he was more than pleased by the performance of his team. Our intensity and rebounding was key for the win today. The Beidler block on Peacock at the end showed just how much we wanted to win this game. I dont know if Beidler was the best player today, but he was great. He was so important on defense, stressed Silvano Poropat. The Fraport Skyliners gave a spirited effort again, but werent able to play their game as MBC was able to keep them away for long enough periods to keep the game out of their reach of being able to turn it when they needed to. The Fraport Skyliners had their chance as MBC almost gave it away. Frankfurt was unable to keep tempo up and when you give up 17 offensive rebounds than it is hard to win. When you play aggressive, then you tend to be further away from the basket which makes it tougher to get the rebounds. Frankfurt started to hit their shots late. Rebounding and turnovers was a factor which enabled MBC to have 9 possessions more which made the difference in a close game. You can never underestimate a team like MBC. They understood that they had to play calm and disciplined even at the end when it was close, stressed basketball expert Steven Clauss.

It was the first home game of the season where everyone in the arena can see familiar faces and getting back into the basketball groove in the living room of the Fraport arena. A rare occurrence before the game saw Muli Katzurin and Silvano Poropat having some chit chat as coached dont usually take the time to do that before the jump ball. Unlikely MBC top scorer Steve Wachalski after two games nailing jumper after jumper in warm ups and sprouting of unending self confidence. Only 4,030 people wanted to see the home opener of the Fraport Skyliners, but the home team sped out quickly to a 4-0 lead as Frankfurt had high intensity on offense as Zach Peacock scored over Djordje Pantelic and Johnathan Jones scored inside on hard penetration. After a Chad Timberlake lay in, Peacock scored over Pantelic again as MBC trailed 6-2. However MBC soon found its rhythm as Providence graduate Sharaud Curry got going nailing three free throws and a shot from the parking lot as MBC led 8-6. Jones was able to tie the score at 8-8 with a pull up jumper, but MBC closed out the first quarter in style going on a 11-5 run to lead 19-13. MBC was able to keep the tempo down and play their style. It should be noted that Steve Wachalski and Kelly Beidler hit two fortunate bank shots. Curry at 178cm hit a huge shot over 203cm Peacock as well. Peacock played a great first quarter scrambling inside for a tip in and dunking moments before the buzzer sound to end the first quarter. If MBC hadnt made those two bank shots the score would have been 13-13. Both teams were playing equally, the slow tempo helped MBC and Curry did a great job with discipline on the playmaking, said basketball expert Steven Clauss. MBC was shooting 60% from the field and 57% from outside while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 43% from the field and 0% from outside. MBC had the 7-4 rebound edge, but four turnovers while Frankfurt only had two turnovers.

In the second quarter, the Mitteldeutscher BC was able to keep control of the game against the Fraport Skyliners. When Curry was in the game the MBC offense was very controlled and there was good shot selection, but when he was on the bench, they had more difficulty getting a good shot on offense. The Fraport Skyliners used this to their advantage going on an 8-1 run to cut the MBC lead to 25-23. Robertson was involved in the first two buckets of the run feeding Danilo Barthel for an easy lay up and then going coast to coast for a basket. Dion Dowell who had difficulty finding his rhythm and getting shots off made a tip in and Barthel hit two more free throws. Runs continued to reign in this quarter as MBC was able to extend their lead a bit with a 5-0 run to lead 30-23. Wachalski made a tough tip in in traffic and Curry hit a bank shot. Frankfurt didnt lose their cool and closed out the second quarter strong with a 9-4 run to trail only 34-32. Robertson nailed a big three pointer and Peacock continued to give production with a lay in and dunk. Jones finished the scoring with an off balance jumper. Frankfurt was able to play their game more and play fast and give MBC more pressure. Frankfurt played good defense, but allowed MBC to score too much inside as they were shooting 70% from the two point area, commented basketball expert Steven Clauss. The Mitteldeutscher BC was shooting 46% from the field and 29% from the three point line while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 48% from the field and 13% from the three point line. MBC had the 16-13 rebound lead and five turnovers while Frankfurt only had three turnovers.

The third quarter was tight and was the lowest scoring in the whole game. The Fraport Skyliners were on the door step of the MBC wolves den door, but were unable to fit into the small crack of the door. Beidler started off the scoring in the third quarter with a tip in and Zach Peacock followed with another spot up jumper over Pantalic. Frankfurt continued to have problems stopping the mBC penetration as it wasnt only Curry who could skip into the lane without problems, but also Timberlake who did giving MBC the 38-34 lead. Quantez Robertson who was penetrating as if he was Dashaun Wood went coast to coast for the hoop as Frankfurt trailed 38-34. Whenever Frankfurt was with one foot in the crack of the door, it was MBC that would close the crack as Beidler retrieved a no look pass from Curry for the easy basket as MBC led 40-36. Larry Wright who had been quiet in the first quarter finally got going nailing a three pointer on the fast break, but Curry did damage again on the penetration as MBC led 42-39. Frankfurt then saw some daylight going on a rapid 6-0 run to lead briefly 45-42. Peacock scored inside and Wright dropped a huge three pointer for the Frankfurt 45-42 lead. Just when one thought that the Fraport Skyliners could take this momentum into the fourth quarter, MBC swung back ending the quarter with a 5-0 run and retaking the lead something that they would never relinquish. MBC has two scorers with Beidler and Curry and it will probably be them that most people will remember at the end of the season, but in the last run it was the two work horses Wachalski and Uskowski that helped the 17 offensive rebound account with battling on the offensive boards and scoring. MBC led after three quarters 49-45. The Fraport Skyliners came out very dynamic in the third quarter, but let up again in the last minutes. They let MBC back into the game. Frankfurt was simply not consistent enough in keeping the game fast. They continued to let up too many offensive rebounds and both teams were shooting three pointers poorly, stated basketball expert Steven Clauss. The Mitteldeutscher BC was shooting 45% from the field and 25% from the parking lot while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 46% from the field and 25% form the parking lot. MBC had the significant 25-18 rebound edge, but 10 turnovers while Frankfurt had nine turnovers.

One will never say that the Fraport Skyliners didnt fight, because fight they did in the fourth quarter and they were so close, but would never lead again in the game. After Wachalski opened up the scoring with a three pointer to give MBC the 52-45 lead, it was Frankfurt that didnt allow them to break away going on their own 6-0 run to cut the MBC lead to 52-51. German guard Konstantin Klein nailed a three pointer and Dion Dowell who had not been a factor all game made a fade away. The story of the game was that the Fraport Skyliners never could make a sufficient amount of consecutive stops, because MBC kept hitting big shots to keep the lead. After a Curry three pointer, it was Robertson who made a fade away jumper to cut the MBC lead to 55-53. Frankfurt was close again, but MBC kept their offense consistent going on a 4-0 run to lead 59-53. Uskoski got another offensive rebound and put back and Beidler continued to keep the offensive board his personal stomping ground with a bucket. However Frankfurt continued to match MBC in scoring going on a 5-0 run as Jones scored on the penetration and Klein hit another three pointer as MBC led only 59-58. MBC kept up the pressure as it was Beidler who just continued to punish Frankfurt on the offensive boards scoring twice as Frankfurt trailed 64-59. With less than three minutes to play, crunch time had arrived as Peacock made a dunk and after a missed Tez dunk it was Jones that scored cutting the MBC lead to 66-63. Curry who had been hot all game saved his best for last as he made a raindrop shot in the lane looking like a Chris Paul in motion as MBC led 68-63. Robertson and Timberlake then exchanged free throws as MBC led 70-66. Then came the turning point of the game. Wachalski was hit with an unsportsmanlike foul. Peacock made two free throws cutting the lead to 70-68. Frankfurt had the ball with 13 seconds and the chance to bring the game into OT or win it with a three pointer. Beidler who had been big on the glass proved to also be big as he blocked Peacock on the last shot giving MBC their first win of the year. The man of Peacocok got beat so I came over to help my teammates. I thought better to try and block and risk the foul and giving up free throws then letting him score. I always have liked to be aggressive. I have been blocking shots all through my career even though it doesnt get noticed as much. People look at points and rebounds. Blocking shots is a strong point in my game, warned Kelly Beidler. Beidler is the central force in our defense. His long arms make a difference on defense and rebounding. That block was huge for us, said Sharaud Curry. The Fraport Skyliners were so close, but something was missing from the Artland game. We didnt come out with the same intensity as in Artland on offense and defense. We gave up too many second chances and didnt box out well. They just wanted it more than us, stressed Fraport Skyliner guard Quantez Robertson. For MBC it was just a relief getting the monkey off their back with that first win. We didnt want to start 0-3 since we have big games with Bamberg and Munich coming up. We took tempo out of the game and went inside. We did good job recognizing the mismatches, said Sharaud Curry. MBC have already shown early in the season that in pressure situations that they are on the same page. We stayed sound at the end. We played together as a team getting defensive stops and key rebounds, expressed Kelly Beidler.

The Mitteldeutscher BC was led by Sharud Curry with 20 points and four assists. Kelly Beidler with 17 points and ten rebounds (8 offensive rebounds). After a performance like that, you could call the American Mr offensive rebound Kelly Beidler. I havent been called that. I just work hard and bring my part to the game. I think that it would be tough having to live up to that nickname every night, warned Kelly Beidler. Steve Wachalski chipped in with 11 points and Chad Timberlake with 10 points. The Fraport Skyliners were led by Zach Peacock with 24 points and nine rebounds. Quantez Robertson chipped in with 12 points. The Fraport Skyliners shot better than the Mitteldeutscher BC shooting 47% from the field and 31% from outside while MBC shot 42% from the field and 23% form outside. MBC won the rebounding duel 37-27 including 17 offensive rebounds and had 11 turnovers while Frankfurt had 12 turnovers. The next opponent for the Fraport Skyliners is TBB Trier who are known for playing defense and they will have to bring a better offensive performance than against MBC. Our offense was stagnant at times. We would run the pick and roll and the kick out, but ten at other times we didnt. As a point guard I need to get the whole team involved and I didnt. We werent consistent enough. We got Peacock involved a lot, but not enough other players. We need a better balance of inside out, warned Johnathan Jones. TBB Trier host the Fraport Skyliners October 14th at 17:00.
