Armor Stop Flash in Showcase Action
Utah couldn’t really ask for more, having trailed most of the way to that point. Ingram, shooting a robust 47 percent from three-point range and slated to take part in tomorrow’s Three-Point Shooting Contest, took aim and missed, allowing Springfield to squeeze out a 95-89 victory.
JamesOn Curry, L.D. Williams, Chas McFarland and Jerry Smith each scored 12 points for the Armor (6-14). Scottie Reynolds added eight points, four assists and a game-high four steals for Springfield.
Reynolds, who went undrafted in 2010, originally signed to play overseas this summer after failing to nail down a guaranteed NBA contract. He eventually returned to the States, looking to give it a shot in the NBA D-League.
“This type of setting is why I came back,” said Reynolds, a four-year standout at Villanova who was a First Team All-American as a senior. “This place is filled with basketball people. Every time you step on the court in this league, somebody important is watching you. Each and every night is a chance to get better and try to get a Call-up.”
Ronald Dupree led Utah (9-9) with 19 points. Orien Greene had another strong all-around game for the Flash, finishing with 17 points on 8-for-11 shooting, to go with four assists and three steals.
This was Utah’s second and final game at this year’s NBA D-League Showcase. Springfield is in action again Thursday against Idaho.
