As Clyde’s battled against Skills & Scrimmages on Sunday, Georgetown rising sophomores Stephen Domingo and Bradley Hayes showed flashes of what they can do. If they want to get minutes under John Thompson III this season, though, they’re going to have to show a whole lot more.
Skills & Scrimmages topped the de facto home team by a 67-59 scoreline at McDonough Arena on the second weekend of Nike Pro City League action, finishing off what had been a back-and-forth matchup with a timely run late; unfortunately, that last spurt came largely as a result of Domingo’s and Hayes’ crunch-time deficiencies.
Domingo, who by my precise account went 2-for-a-lot from three-point land on the afternoon, missed a potential game-tying three with 2:46 to play, then — with his team forced to foul — was outmuscled on the glass after a missed one-and-one.
Hayes, fed in the post on the next possession, immediately traveled to give the ball right back. It would continue from there, however, as Domingo would get fouled shooting a three (here’s the good part) and then make only one of three from the charity stripe (there’s the bad part).
