Lowry vs. Foye '08-'09: Part I

It took extra time to settle the first match-up of the 2008-2009 between former Villanova teammates Randy Foye and Kyle Lowry. This time Foye's Timberwolves came out on top at home 108-98.

Both former Wildcats played well.

Kyle Lowry had perhaps his best game all year with his first double-double of the season. Lowry had 14 points and a career-high 12 assists. Just like he did at Nova, Kyle scored most of his points from the free throw line, where he went a perfect 8-8. Lowry started at point guard and played 34 minutes, committing only 2 turnovers.

Randy Foye recently moved to the starting shooting guard position and has handled the transition well. He had 15 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists in Minnesota's victory. Kevin McHale moved Randy to the 2 in an attempt to get him to be more aggressive offensively. It has seemingly worked as Foye is averaging 19.2 ppg over his last five games. In other news Randy grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds last week in Sacramento to accompany his 26 points. Hoopsworld recently caught up with Foye- check it out for an interesting read.
