Gbinije contributes off bench in 1st game at former school Duke

first_img Published on February 23, 2014 at 5:31 pm Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 DURHAM, N.C. — The Cameron Crazies are notoriously harsh and on Saturday, Michael Gbinije learned that homecomings at Cameron Indoor Stadium can be brutal.From the moment he stepped on Coach K Court, Gbinije was showered with taunts from the unappreciative Crazies.“Gbi-ni-je! Still doesn’t play!” they chanted as he shot around during warm-ups.Through the first half, though, he played plenty — 12 minutes to be exact — and was one of the best players on the floor. No. 1 Syracuse lost to No. 5 Duke 66-60, but Gbinije scored eight points in the opening frame.He didn’t wait long to draw the ire of the 9,314-person crowd for his actions on the court, either. Just 6:28 into the game, Gbinije intercepted Jabari Parker’s pass and took it the other way for what should have been an easy layup. Andre Dawkins grabbed his jersey and was whistled for an intentional foul.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Cameron Crazies were livid. Gbinije calmly sunk both free throws and the Orange kept the ball.Two minutes later, Tyler Ennis grabbed a steal and hit Gbinije for a trailing 3 in transition.“I thought Mike did a great job coming in,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said.Boeheim plays with a small rotation, so the contributions of Gbinije and backup center Baye Moussa Keita were critical.“Both guys played tremendous,” he said.He added another 3 from the corner late in the first half, but saw his role shrink in the second frame. That reopened the door for derisive cheers from the Cameron crowd.When he inbounded the ball across from Syracuse’s bench and in front of a horde of Duke students, Gbinije was met with angry heckling. When he fouled Amile Jefferson on nearly the same spot on the court, the Blue Devil faithful chanted, “We don’t miss you!”Gbinije left the locker room before media was able to enter, but in a familiar gym he delivered one of the most admirable performances of his college career.“Mike coming in really is a good thing for us moving forward,” Boeheim said. “It’s tough to come back down here and play. He played his best game of the year.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Varsity Blue: Fighting for place in NBA, Lakers guard Vander Blue returns to alma mater

first_imgMILWAUKEE — As the holder of a two-way contract that buys him just 45 days with the Lakers this season, it’s not often that Vander Blue gets to feel like a big shot on a team with Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram.That changed for part of Friday afternoon, when Coach Luke Walton announced upon landing in Milwaukee an impromptu practice at Marquette University. Blue played for the Golden Eagles from 2010-13.“Finally got a little attention,” Blue said, smiling, “but it’s cool. Everybody’s been pretty cool about it.”Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lonzo Ball’s ‘mainstream’ celebrity fame adds pressure for Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball becomes youngest to record triple-double, passes LeBron in Lakers loss AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“They think I could have had a few more pictures up at Marquette,” he said.He joked that he’s “got some work to do” to catch up to some of Marquette’s more famous alums. Notably, Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler.When he’s not with the Lakers, Blue will play with the team’s South Bay affiliate. Playing in the NBA full-time remains the goal, but he’s enjoying it while he’s in the top league.“Go from commercial (flights) to (private jets) it’s a big difference,” he said. “It’s what you work for. Gives me a good taste of where I want to be permanently. I just got to keep working.”TRAPPED IN MILWAUKEE Ball played the final minutes of the Lakers loss in Washington on Thursday, scoring two points on 1-of-2 shooting. The next day, back on his old stomping grounds, he prepared to be teased. The doors clicked into place, and the only way out was to figure out the code… together.After practicing Friday, the Lakers held a team-building exercise at a Milwaukee “escape room,” where three teams of players and coaches were locked in a room and had to solve puzzles and decipher clues to get out.Only one team managed to escape.“When I made the teams I was going on personality and I stacked the team as far as education was concerned,” Walton lamented.Stanford guys Mark Madsen and Brook Lopez led a winning team that also included Josh Hart and Lonzo Ball.“They were all on the same team,” Walton said, “so that was my fault. They won.”In fact, Ball ultimately solved the puzzle that freed his team.“The guys had fun,” Walton said.ALSOLarry Nance Jr. tweeted on Saturday that he returned to the weight room for the first time since suffering a broke bone in his left hand on Nov. 2. “Feeling great and making progress,” Nance wrote. He underwent surgery  a day after the injury. The Lakers initially said he was expected to be out 4-6 weeks. …Late in the fourth quarter on Saturday a spirited group of Bucks fans, called the “Clutch Crew,” started chanting, “Thank you, Bogut” and “We love Bogut.” Lakers center Andrew Bogut was drafted first overall by Milwaukee in 2004 and spent seven years with the franchise before being traded to Golden State in 2012. He did not play against the Bucks. In his first season in L.A., the 2010 All-NBA third-teamer has averaged .9 points and 2.7 rebounds in seven minutes per game.last_img read more
