Notes and observations from Johnson C. Smith's 72-62 win against Allen (S.C.) in the Tip-Off Classic:


This season’s Golden Bulls are healthier. One of the issues last year’s team faced was a shortened bench with only nine players suiting up. Against Allen, 15 players were in uniform and nine played.


Reserve forward Robert Williams had the best game of his Golden Bulls career, scoring 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting. His previous high was 14 points against Livingstone last season as a starter.


“He’s coming off the bench right now and giving us a lift,” JCSU coach Steve Joyner said. “He’s been an off the bench, pick me up kind of guy to get some things going, especially going toward the goal and playing defense. He the sixth man right now who’d doing a great job for us.”


Said Williams: “All I’ve got to do is trust in coaching. They want me to come off the bench and do my job. It’s tough, but I’m helping my team.”


JCSU was sloppy on offense, turning the ball over 24 times. Four starters – Trevin Parks, Terrance Washington, Antwan Wilkerson and Emilio Parks – combined for half of the miscues. That’ll have to be cleaned up, but in fairness, five rotation players are newcomers, so there’s going to be mistakes.


“Most of them were unforced because we were running too fast,” Joyner said.


On the other hand, JCSU more than held its own on defensive, forcing 29 Allen turnovers and converting them into 39 points. The Golden Bulls also held the Yellow Jackets to 46.2 percent shooting and blocked six shots.


“We did some things to force some turnovers with them,” Joyner said. “I thought quite a few players played outstanding defense.”


“That’s one thing we’re really good at, defense,” Williams said. “Defense is one of our pet peeves. In practice we push defense and that’s why we’re going to win the majority of our games this year.”
