The first half was less than memorable however the competition left a bit to be desired. Kyrie played fine but only tallied 3 point jumper. Coming out of the half he awoke to the tune of 18 points in the third quarter alone. The end of the quarter signaled the end of his playing time for this game as the result was never in doubt. His line by my account was two assists, one steal, six rebounds, three turnovers and 21 points on eight for 14 shooting (4-of-8 from long range, 1 of 1 from the line).
As for my impressions of his game, they could not be more positive. He is a do it all point guard, from the dribble to scoring to going to the glass. I saw no weakness in his game. He has good size in both height and bulk, a legitimate 6'2".
He has the body to take some punishment and showed a variety of moves from the spin to the cross over. Later in the afternoon I was able to catch a more competitive game which feature a Will Barton, CJ Fair led team from Baltimore.
Stay tuned for Part II of the conclusion of Pool Play wrap-up.
