Roth sets Washington all-time scoring mark

  • 01/07/2008 8:00 am in

Matt RothIt was a successful weekend for a trio of future Hoosiers as Matt Roth set a Washington school record for points, Tom Pritchard helped St. Edward’s to its eighth win of the season and Derek Elston’s Tipton Blue Devils remained unbeaten. Here’s a quick recap of the weekend that was for all three players:

Matt Roth: Washington topped Limestone 65-63 on Friday night and Roth became the all-time leading scorer at Washington. Roth hit two free throws with 33 seconds remaining to give Panthers a four-point lead and 1,713 points for his career. Former Purdue player Todd Foster previously held the record. “There’s not enough words to put in writing how much this means to me. It’s so much sweeter to celebrate this record after a win,” Roth said afterwards. He finished with 16 points, four assists and three steals. Also of note, Roth’s younger brother Mark had 11 points for Washington. {Peoria Journal Star}

Tom Pritchard: Pritchard’s 14 points helped St. Edwards get past Perry 60-47. It was a battle of two of the better big men in the country as Xavier signee Kenny Frease plays for Perry. St. Edwards lost its top player, Michigan State signee Delvon Roe, eight games ago. {Cantonrep.com}

Derek Elston: Tipton, No. 1 in Class 2-A, remained unbeaten as they coasted past West Lafayette 57-43 on Friday night. Elston finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Tipton allowed more than 40 points for just the third time this season. West Lafayette had won the previous seven meetings between the two schools. {Lafayette Journal and Courier}

    I like the posts. Obviously AS isn’t interested in how IU’s recruits are doing this year… It’s a blog, not Time Magazine.

    AS,
    Apparently you haven’t been with us long. If you have another site that gives more information, please let me know. I’ve been looking for a site to give consistant update info on recruiting for awhile now. As for pre and post game anaylsis them do a good job as well. ITH has been a little slow through all of the Holidays but most of the time I’m very pleased with what they post. What is it that your are looking for?

    ITH…I understand that all of your hits are probably of the young male species but I have a nine year old that I will show different topics to on your page. I like the ad for the women but I would not want my kid to think that I approve of such. just a comment. Jessica Biel Ok I would like to see that naked.

    I’m jumping on the anti-AS bandwagon. Besides ITH and Terry Hutchens’ blog on Indystar, there is nowhere else to go with this type of in-depth coverage. Well Peegs I guess, but that’s a subscription fee.

    Besides, I love reading about recruiting tidbits. And I could care less whether we’re talking sophomores or seniors. The more I learn about them now, the more excited I am when they finally put on that Hoosiers uniform.

    Keep up the good work fellas, don’t let the haters get you down.

    Wow, the IU recruits averaged about 16 points/game this week in high school. Stop the presses! This might be news if the lead of the story is about how weak this ruiting class appears. There is one missing report:

    Our “ruiting” class is weak? WTF are you talking about?

    UWE (nice reference by the way)…again, you’re missing the “point” here. It’s not about how many points they scored. The guys here at ITH are doing the homework for us. As much as I like reading about recruits, I don’t have the time to read each of their local papers or websites to get that info. Ergo, I get all things Hoosiers at this one-stop-shop. The beauty of all this, is that you can simply ignore it. Imagine that! Or you can continue to complain about a free service.

    i will give my props to this blog as well. it is my first stop in cyberspace most days and should be for any die-hard fan.

    i have a quick question for those of you who do appreciate the recruit tidbits. why has no one commented on the blog on mccallum? i find it extremely exciting to hear that he scored 27 the other night, and he’s almost certainly wearing cream and crimson…but not for a couple of years…i think he’s only a sophomore.

    one last thing…i’m really glad i don’t hate on the world like some really tall redheads do.
