The Erie BayHawks have won four in a row with the latest win being a 116-102 victory at Idaho against the Stampede on Saturday night.
Former NBA first-round pick, Mike Sweetney, made his Erie debut and had 19 points and nine rebounds in 23 minutes and 57 seconds. Guess the big fella didn’t slow down Erie’s offense as I figured he would.
Looks like Kyle Goldcamp is still starting for the BayHawks, but the key to this run is the play of Blake Ahearn and Mike Gansey. The two were at it again Saturday, scoring a combined 54 points.
Ahearn had 28 points. Gansey had 26. Add John Bryant’s 24 points and 16 rebounds and you got three guys who have been putting up huge numbers since Erie traded Alade Aminu to Bakersfield for Ahearn.
The subplot to this game was Erie’s first-round pick, Donell Taylor, playinga against his former team. Taylor, who was traded to Idaho for Gansey, didn’t play Saturday night. He also didn’t play in Idaho’s previous game.
