BNXT League: Leuven Bears closing in, Oostende defeat Feyenoord

๐ŸŽฏ It’s been a shaky PL start in defense for TAA, but in passing he ranks:

๐Ÿ”บ 1st – passes through the back line (97)
๐Ÿ”บ 3rd – passes into final third (184)
๐Ÿ”บ 5th – passes leading to shot (20)
๐Ÿ”บ 7th – pressured passes

Is Southgate right not to include him for #ENGGER?

#LFC

Overall, the #Packers rank just 18th for yards gained per pass completion, and Rodgers has 4 throw aways. Brady is 8-34 on +10 yard attempts, and 3-11 on +20 yard attempts for #Buccaneers.

Whether it’s Brady’s O-Line, or Rodgers’ receivers; these QBs have trust issues right now.

This deep middle 48-yard TD pass brought the #Dolphins within one score of the Ravens in Week 2. It’s currently the 2nd-most improbable completion (20.7% chance) so far in the #NFL.

Buffalo just edges Miami in 1st downs (46-45) and drive-scoring rate (52.4%-47.4%).

Expect a high-scoring game. โšก๏ธ

As the BNXT League prepares for the drama of the playoffs, there are just a couple of matchdays left for teams to make their mark. Here’s how they’re currently shaping up:

Bears maintain home court advantage

Leuven Bears are still undefeated on their home court against the Dutch teams. This weekend, the highest placed Dutch team – Leiden – paid a visit to Leuven. In Leiden, it was a comfortable 95-66 win for the home team.

In the first quarter there was not much difference between both teams, but Leiden missed all six of their 3-point attempts. Leuven didnโ€™t fare much better and the margin was always within four points. Leuven won the quarter with a small lead of 18-17.

In the second quarter a slight gap began to develop, as Leuven started increasing their marginal gains in the paint to score points. Leiden closed a gap of seven points to 36-33, but Leuven replied with another 4-0 run to make the difference seven again, as the teams headed into half-time.

After the break, the Bears were unleashed and immediately led by 16 points after two minutes – an incredible start to the second half. Leiden were able to come back to eight points, but their resistance broke after this. Leuven’s quality was simply superior and after Q3 they had a 64-46 lead.

Jhonathan Dunn played an impressive role for Leiden, scoring 21 points in total. But his performance couldnโ€™t prevent Leuven in further extending their lead. By the end of the game, Leuven reached almost a 30 point lead, going on to winย  86-57.

It’s an impressive rise for Leuven, who started this second phase in 9th place. With just one more week until playoffs begin, they now find themselves in 4th spot.

Oostende searching for new rhythm ahead of playoffs

Despite winning each of their home games in the BNXT league so far this season, things aren’t going as smoothly for Oostende as they were before. They hosted Feyenoord at the weekend, who had previously not won a game in the entirety of the BNXT second phase. Earlier in the week, Levi Randolph was outstanding for Oostende, picking up 32 points.

Despite Feyenoord’s poor record, they gave the home side a mighty scare in this game.

In the first quarter, both teams displayed good offense and the game tied five separate times throughout the quarter. Oostende had slightly less turnovers and won out Q1 by 25-24. The game continued on the same footing in the second quarter. Again, the game was tied five times, with multiple lead changes. At halftime the score was 47-47 and Feyenoord remained in a good position to cause the upset of Oostende.

In the third quarter there was still not much difference, although Oostende was slightly more fluid in attack. Close to the end of Q3 the score was 65-64, when Feyenoord had a major setback as captain Jeroen van der List injured his ankle. This turned out to be a key moment for the rest of the game. Feyenoord kept up with Oostende for the opening minutes of Q4, before Oostende executed an 11-0 run and went on to win 96-81.

Despite the loss Feyenoord can be happy with their performance. The opposite is the case for Oostende, who will be concerned that their form heading into the BNXT playoffs is not where they would like it to be.
