Lopes grow fast in Bahamas win - Aug 23, 2018

Dan Majerle
Playing on an island, Grand Canyon finished its basketball work by showing how no man is an island. The Lopes thrived as a team Wednesday night, playing with more connectivity than in their victorious Monday debut here. They will not reassemble on the court as a team for more than a month but their 83-70 preseason win against the Bahamas All-Stars was enough to stir anticipation for the regular season. GCU emerged with aggression defensively, played with more tempo and cut their turnovers from 28 on Monday to 13 on Wednesday. It was enough to put a smile on head coach Dan Majerle 's face as a Nassau television station cut into its live newscast to interview him at Sir Kendall Isaac Gymnasium. The Lopes will return the favors of their visit to their gracious Summer of Thunder hosts on Thursday, when they will conduct a clinic for young Bahamians. Carlos Johnson (192-G-98) put on a scoring clinic in GCU's two Summer of Thunder appearances this week, totaling 34 points in 21 minutes. He posted a team-high 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting Wednesday but it is just a tease for the 2019-20 season because the Phoenix product must sit out this season after transferring from Washington. Beyond a GCU defense that only allowed 33 percent shooting, Wednesday's most encouraging performance came from Lopes sophomore Damari Milstead (189-PG-99). Currently starting at point guard, he posted 14 points and seven assists in 19 minutes with only two turnovers. He also added two steals. "Damari's got to be a little bit stronger with the basketball and make better decisions," Majerle said. "He's got to be more verbal, which he's trying to do. He's got to lead our guys and get them into stuff. I thought he did a nice job that way." The Lopes needed to play better because the opponent, featuring Bahamian national team members, was better than what they faced on Monday. GCU won by 13 against the All-Stars, who had lost by 10 to Notre Dame and 21 to North Carolina last week. In Milstead's 21 minutes on the court, GCU outscored the All-Stars by 15 points. He increased his use of dribble drives into the lane to set up running floaters. He also sparked the starters' defensive intensity at the top of each half. "We've got a lot of new guys so today we meshed better," Milstead said. "It's a learning process. I'm just trying to get better every single game. We were kind of flat at the beginning of the second half so I had to pick up the defensive intensity. My guys go off my energy. When I'm playing hard, my guys play hard so I have to do it every time I'm on the floor." GCU never trailed but could not put the All-Stars away until the fourth quarter, when a 14-5 GCU run included six points from Tim Finke. The freshman guard followed Monday's eight-rebound game by crashing the offensive boards, darting from the perimeter for three offensive rebounds. One score came when Finke caught the board and twisted his body in one mid-air motion for a follow. Johnson single-handedly staved off one challenge when the aggressive wing scored nine consecutive Lopes points, including consecutive 3-pointers and a steal for a dunk in the second quarter. "If you play hard, it makes up for a lot of mistakes," Majerle said. "That's the one thing we've hung our hat on the last five years. We're always the hardest working team." GCU shot far better than Monday from 3-point range, making 7 of 18 with Johnson making 4 of 6 and sophomore power forward Roberts Blumbergs (208-F/C-97) sinking 2 of 3. Blumbergs scored 13 points and added seven rebounds in 26 minutes and had the team's highest plus-minus rating (GCU was plus-17 when he was on the floor). "That definitely felt better," Blumbergs said. "We just went out there ready to get it done. We got a feel for what each other's role is, how each other move and how to play together and we have fun at the same time."
