The men's basketball team is gearing up for another successful season and looking to improve on last year's efforts.
Glenn Johnston, team coach, said, "We lost last year in the provincial semi-finals; we played a great tournament and the boys just came up short against a very talented team."
With all the new faces and new talent, the team knows they will need time to learn to play together. "It takes time, lots of time, for new faces to feel comfortable on the floor together," said Johnston.
"We have had a couple losses already where we just seemed to be lost in the last minute," he said, but these are the growing pains of any team with new faces, and coaches realize they are going to have to practice hard and come together as a team to outgrow these pains.
"We could've played better, but we are a new team with lots of new faces and we need time, we are practicing every day working on the essentials but focusing on team chemistry because chemistry will win us the games," said first-year player Aaron Ragobar.
The players have suffered a few hard-to-swallow losses this season with two come-from-behind losses, but like Johnston said, "We all learn through tough times; we can't expect to win every game, but we can learn from the tough times we experience."
The team has shaken off the season starting jitters and is focusing on bringing the team chemistry together and winning the championship this year. Support your Falcons and check their schedule online at tinyurl.com/mensbball2011 or outside the Athletics Office.
