Men’s shots rimming out

Posted on

This season, men’s basketball falls far from a successful season with only three wins out of their 18 games so far.

With six games left the team works hard to do their best. “We’ve had our ups and downs but we work hard everyday to improve,” Coach Mark White said. However, the team has not won a game since Jan. 2 and lost all three of their last home games.

Freshman James Stawarz said: “As a freshman I am pretty upset about having a not so successful season so far. It’s tough not having very many wins when you set your expectations at a high level.”

The team practices at least six days a week and when they are not having a mandatory practice scheduled with their coach, the men can be seen playing together any chance they get at open gyms. They work on everything from defense
transitions to individual position plays and include many scrimmage games in their practices to make sure they are always on top of their plays.

With the team working so hard it is surprising to see the outcome of the season. White said, “This year we have a young team, so we’re still working on coming together and learning how to play with each other.” The team is made up of nine
freshman and sophomores and only four upperclassmen.

“The older guys have basically been through every situation there is in college basketball. They know that things will get better and there is a light at the end of the tunnel,” Stawarz said. “They tell us to keep working hard and good things will
come. They are what keeps me going and positive about our season.”

With only six games left, the team is pushing harder than ever to win. They may not have had a completely successful season so far, but they refuse to give up or give in to pressure.
