Manuel, Williams at Portsmouth - Saturday Update

Posted Apr 8, 2005

Oklahoma State's Ivan McFarlin had a game-high 34 points and 11 boards for the winning team.


Jackie Manuel: Continued his impressive week in Portsmouth with 14 points and 10 rebounds against Jawad Williams' team. Manuel was a perfect 8-of-8 from the free throw line and 3-of-7 from the field.

Jawad Williams: Totaled 20 points -- the second highest scoring total in the game -- and added 10 rebounds and two blocks. Williams shot 9-of-17 from the field and 2-of-3 at the line. He got a game-high 35 minutes of playing time.


Jackie Manuel: Was the star of the early evening contest, with a game-high 22 points for Beach Barton Ford in an 86-81 losing effort. Manuel filled up the stat line shooting 10-of-12 from the field, 2-of-3 at the free throw line and posting 6 rebounds, 4 blocks, 2 assists and 1 steal.
