The Erie BayHawks haven’t played a game in a week. That’s been a good thing for D.J. Kennedy.

In last Friday night’s 109-100 win at Fort Wayne, Kennedy took a hard fall on his back on a drive to the basket with 7 minutes, 26 seconds left in the third quarter. Going up for a layup, Kennedy got fouled by JaJuan Johnson, who was trying to block the shot.

Go to the 1:32.04 mark of the replay to see the foul.

Kennedy said earlier this week he expects to play tonight at 7:30 at Canton, but said he could have played had Erie played earlier this week. Erie (1-0) will play the Charge (0-3) again in a back-to-back Saturday in its home opener.

“I would have just prepared myself to play,” Kennedy said. “I wouldn’t have known until I really got out there if I could play, but if I can’t be effective, I’m not going to risk it.”

Forward Ivan Harris has shaved his head since last season with Erie and no longer rocks the braids.

The Erie BayHawks have to make their final two cuts by Wednesday at 5 p.m. to get their roster down to 10 players for the season opener Friday at Fort Wayne.

On Monday night, the BayHawks had a controlled scrimmage at East High School that revealed quite a bit about each of the remaining 12 players. The White team consisted of guards Cedric Jackson, Oliver Lafayette, Rod Wilmont, forwards Ivan Harris, Kyle Goldcamp and center John Bryant.

That team beat the Black team, 34-32. The black team consistead of first-round pick, guard Donell Taylor, guards Zach Sowers and forwards Jackie Manuel, Martin Zeno, Alade Aminu and Jarvis Gunter.

Very competitive game, but here’s what I noticed about each player in the scrimmage.
