Bekier Bombs Away

Reading, MA - Led by Kevin Bekier's "record setting" performance, Origin Unknown downed Millwall Thursday night and hit the century mark in the process - winning 100-65.

Bekier, a Steve Kerr-esque sniper shooting guard for OU, hit 9 three-pointers en route to a 27 point performance. What was amazing is that he didn't hit any two point field goals or free throws during the game. "I must say in all the years I have scored I have never seen anyone individual score 27 points and have no foul shots or 2 point field goals," said scorekeeper Pete. "Kevin, great 3 point shooting."

In addition to Bekier's outburst, Pistol Pete Gray dropped a game high 33 points, and Cap'n Mike added 23.Millwall did start out the game with good pace, as Feisty Dave Walker knocked down 3 early jumpers to give the veterans the early lead. OU, however didn't panic and chopped down the deficit by shooting more three pointers than two pointers. As Millwall pounded the block with Demos and their other big man, OU was content to shoot jumper after jumper.

OU was also able to get out on the break midway through the first half as a "Lebron-like" Pat Murray led three consecutive fast breaks which resulted in lay-ups. As the half ended, OU had built a comfortable double digit lead, which would prove impenetrable in the second half, as Bekier would catch fire.

The second half was more of the same - fast breaks and threes, as the entire OU bunch got in on the action. Towards the end of the game Millwall's Fiesty invented the catchy new phrase of "Shu-on-one", referring to a Shu-ter Patel coast to coast fast break. As the clock ticked down, and OU clinging to a 30 point lead, Cap'n waddled up the court to drain a 23 footer for an even hundo (100) - much to the delight of the OU faithful. "I just think we needed that three to really ensure the victory and get our morale up," said Cap'n.

The win gets OU to 4-3 in the league with an upcoming match-up against Nick B. Cap'n Mike did not get to the line in the victory, and still sits at 12-16 on the year.
