Andrew Jones
In the last game of the regular season of the PRO B south, the Dresden Titans visited the Fraport Skyliners as it was a more or less a meaningless game for both as the Saxony team already had a birth in the play downs while the Frankfurt club had already secured a date in the playoffs and the Titans were able to be only the second team in the league together with Weissenhorn to sweep the season series with a solid 88-80 victory. After a very tight first half, the Dresden Titans gave the green light to Andrew Jones (191-SG-83, college: Miles) who accepted and after netting eight points in the first halft totally crushed the Fraport Skyliners like ripe Grape fruit pouring in 30 points in the second half to stifle the Fraport Skyliners as they had absolutely no cure of how to stop the 29 American that was scoring from everywhere as if he had been put in a microwave. We finally played some defense which hasnt always been the case this season. The game was back and fourth in the first half and we had way too many turnovers. In the second half it was the Andrew Jones show who carried us and we did a good job getting him shots, stressed Dresden Titans captain Jason Boucher. The Fraport Skyliners were without out their three German license players Konstantin Klein, Danilo Barthel and Johannes Voigtmann and Larry Wright who is with the Beko BBL team Skyliners until the end of the season, but despite being very undermanned, the club gave a very spirited effort never giving up. I thought that despite missing many players, we played very well for the guys we had. I saw some good things on offense, but we lost the game on defense. We had problems with our one on one and help defense. I think that if we could of made more stops on defesne at the end, then the game could of gone down to the wire, expressed American Taylor Brown.

Ex ratiopharm Ulm forward Alexander Heide who palyed four Beko BBL games in the 2007-2008 season hit a fade away jumper, but Nikolai Vukovic got going eraly testing his 48% three point shooting with a bomb and 3-2 frankfurt lead. Dresden Titans center Jared Bensen also got into groove fast making a turn around jumper and testing his 43% shooting form the parking lot as Frankfurt trailed 7-3. After a Falko Thelig free throw, Bensen took advantage of little help defense scoring inside as Dresden led 9-4. However the Fraport Skyliners juniors were on their game early as Vukovic hit his second three pointer of the game and Jan Novak iced two free throws dead locking the game at 9-9. However Dresden then jumped out on a lightening 8-0 run to lead 17-10 as young 19 year old German Daniel Pollrich and American Andrew Jones nailed three pointers and Patrick Ruelke scored inside. After a Tim Oldenburg and Falko Thelig free throws, Brown scored again inside cutting the Dresden lead to 17-15. Dresden closed out the first quarter with a mini 4-0 run as they continued to take advantage of the Frankfurt weak inside defense and Thomas Lienhard and Robert Zobel scored. Dresden led 21-15 after one quarter. Both teams were still getting a feel for each other and we did a better job adapting to them than they did to us, stressed Dresden guard Jason Boucher. Dresden was shooting very hot 75% from the two point range and 60% from outside while Frankfurt was shooting poorly at 13% from the two point range and 29% from outside. Dresden had the 11-5 rebound edge, but seven turnovers while Frankfurt had two turnovers only.

The game remained tight in the second quarter as no team led by more than six points. Taylor Brown got Frankfurt on the board first with a fade away jumper, but Jones responded with an easy lay in after he glided into the zone like a mal nourished golden bear from Miles (NCAA). German Benedikt Nikolay then dropped a much needed three pointer to cut the Dresden lead to 23-20. Boucher and Max Merz then traded three pointers and Brown scored again inside as Dresden led only 26-25. After a Ruelke jumper, it was Brown that hit a jumper after getting a fancy behind the back pass from Max Merz as Frankfurt trailed 28-27. After Boucher nailed a three pointer, the FRaport Skyliners stormed back as Max Merz found the hole and penetrated with his usual quickness finishing with a finger tip roll and Vukovic tied the game with another three point bomb 33-33. Boucher then made a steam and scored while Novak scored and Brown made a free throw and Frankfurt led 36-35. Dresden then escaped out on a 5-0 run as Ruelke and Jones scored, but Brown closed out the scoring in the second quarter as the Dresden Titans led 40-38. We had a hard time on the boards as they rebounded better. Brown was very aggressive and they were always crashing the boards, added Jason Boucher. Frankfurt was shooting 50% from the two point range and 31% from the three point line, while Dresden was shooting 63% from the two point range 63% and 38% from the three point line. Frankfurt rebounded a lot better as it was 16-16 on the boards and Dresden had eight turnovers and Frankfurt only four turnovers.

The third quarter stayed tight until the end where the Dresden Titans could break away. Jones started the third quarter with scoring a pull up jumper, but Brown also was on his game as he scored being set up nicely by German Falko Thelig as Frankfurt trailed 43-41. After Heide made free throws, it was Brown again who this time scored shortly before the shot clock sounded as Dresden still led 45-43. The scoring makeup of the third quarter seemed more like a Jones-Brown show as both guys were keeping their respective teams close. After Jones made a steal and went coast to coast scoring where he really looked like a man weaving in and out of kids, it was Brown again keeping his part making a dunk as Dresden led 48-46, but then it was Jones again hitting a jumper as nobody could keep him in check. Next it wasnt Brown again, but ales likely player in German Lennant Okeke who is an NBBL player for Eintracht Frankfurt was left open in the corner and drooped a beautiful three pointer in best Jimmy Mckinney manner as Dresden led 50-49, but the next time down it was Jones again nailing a three pointer as Frankfurt trailed 53-49. After an Oldenburg lay in and Brown free throw where Frankfurt trailed 53-52, the game turned as Andrew Jones where there was once a baseball player under the same name that could turn games around with his hot hitting, the basketball player took Dresden on a back crushing 9-1 run scoring all points scoring a three pointer and three lay ins as Frankfurt trailed62-53. Jason Boucher closed out the third quarter with a bitter three pointer at the buzzer as the Dresden Titans led 67-55. We gave Andrew Jones the green light and he was hot. Sometimes its him and sometimes its me. If he is feeling it then I run the point and sometimes when I am feeling it he runs the point. We did a good job getting him the ball, added Jason Boucher. The Dresden Titans were shooting 63% from the two point range and 44% from the parking lot while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 50% from the two point range and 36% from the parking lot. Frankfurt was leading the rebound duel 23-21 and both teams coughed up the ball 12 times.

The Fraport Skyliners open up the fourth quarter with a quick 5-0 run to cut the Dresden lead to 67-60 as Oldenburg made a lay in and Merz connected on a three pointer. Merz played very aggressive and played very hard. When he plays hard, he gives his team a chance. He has a bright future, warned Jason Boucher. The Fraport Skyliners continued to fight, but they just couldnt get over the hump to cut the Dresden lead under six points. After an Oldenburg layup, it was Jones again that dropped a three pointer for the 72-63 Dresden lead. Oldenburg then cut the Dresden lead to 71-66 with a massive dunk, but Boucher scored inside and Novak hit a jumper as Frankfurt trailed 74-68. Jared Bensen who had been quiet for some time scored inside and Brown answered again inside as Frankfurt trailed 76-70. Jones and Heide then hit free throws something Frankfurt had difficulty doing consistently as Dresden led 81-73. Frankfurt made one last gasp as Novak hit a three pointer cutting the Dresden lead to 83-76. However with time running out, Jones made the last six points for Dresden from the free throw line helping seal the win. I have to give Frankfurt credit, because they played hard for 40 minutes. It was a weird feeling tonight, because it seems like this season there were too many games where we forgot how to win. We played too much this season not too lose instead of playing to win. Tonight we did a better job playing to win, stressed Jason Boucher.

The Dresden Titans were led by Andrew Jones with 38 points. Jason Boucher produced 15 points and five assists. The Fraport Skyliners were led by Taylor Brown with 28 points, 12 rebounds and three assists. Tim Oldenburg added 11 points and Nikola Vukovic contributed 10 points. Max Merz hahd nine points and six assists, Jan Novak nine points and Falko Thelig eight points and nine assists. Dresden shot 53% from the field and 37% from outside while the Fraport Skyliners shot 46% from the field and 35% from outside. Frankfurt won the rebound duel 31-30 and 18 turnovers while Dresden had 19 turnovers. It was Jones that decided the game in the second half for the Dresden Titans. I was in the zone in the second half. I had been frustrated with my turnovers early, so I got more aggressive attacking the basket, added Andrew Jones. Jones got going and we let him get a groove. It seemed like there was no shot that he couldnt make. He was very good at breaking down our one on one defense. He was simply deadly tonight, added Taylor Brown. Brown seemed in the shadow of Jones, but had a strong game and had to produce more. I have to protect the paint more when the Germans arent playing. I keep the fort down and get much needed points. All I have to do is get open, because I know that my teammates will find me, warned Taylor Brown.
