Halftime in Grand Rapids:
Hope's led by as many as 13 in this one; Wheaton was unable to get any closer than five. The Dutch are doing a great job of driving to the basket and then either getting the easy layup or kicking it out for an open midrange shot, although, true to their m.o., they are not hitting any threes (0-4). David Krombeen, the leading scorer for the game with 14, is slicing and dicing the Wheaton D at will. I am not at all impressed by the Hope big man, 6'10 D1 transfer Nate Van Arendonk.
Wheaton's led by Tim McCrary with 10 points, but he's not getting to many rebounds and only has one dime thus far.
Hope's outshooting Wheaton from the field, 58% to 40%, and is killing the Sonic Atmospheric Disturbance on the boards, 19-9.
Am I the only one who's getting a case of vertigo from watching a video feed that's coming from what is apparently the rafters of Van Noord Arena?
