Armor, at full strength, beats Bayhawks behind Willie Reed's 20/20 gem

New, comments

Adonis Thomas and Lorenzo Brown, who the Nets hoped would develop together this season at Springfield were in Armor uniforms for the first time this season after being cut in the last few days by Orlando and Philadelphia. They did well enough, scoring 21 points in limited minutes in a nice win over Erie, but the big story was Willie Reed.

Reed, who was called up late last year by Memphis, helped his chances of getting another call-up this year with a monster game of 20 points and 24 rebounds. He tied the all-time high for Springfiled, one game after teammate Jeff Foote grabbed the same number Saturday. Reed shot 9-of-15 and added five assists and two blocks to his big boxscore.

Khalif Wyatt, the A-10 player of the year last season, continued his hot shooting. As well in the 112-103 wi. Wyatt, a 6'4" combo guard, finished with 25 to give him 81 in the last three games,an even 100 in the last four. The Temple product played most of the season in China where he averaged 15 points per game.

With seven games to play, the Armor are five games under .500 and would need to win them all to have an outside shot at a layoff spot.
