As we head into the holiday season, I'd like to suggest some potential holiday wish lists of some of our basket ballers.
Jimmy Sewell - continued development of his inside game to exploit his height while complementing his nice shooting touch.
Matt Bell - someone to be a consistent, effective second scoring option to draw some defensive attention away from him.
Travis Owsley - Continue the trend of his improved offensive outputs in the last couple of games to complement his defensive tenacity.
Cory Sinning - Continue to show improvement in his outside shooting to match his toughness.
Colin Harris - Average near double digits in scoring while continuing to improve his defense down low-- he will be our leading inside presence this year.
Marshall Jackson - continue developing his offensive game to complement his athletic ability, speed and tough defense.
Ray Fredrick - hopefully see some more opportunities for playing time for our only senior and co-captain.
Coach Crews - more consistency from the team, more wins against Division 1 opponents, and, of course, some additional athletic recruits for the Class of 2009.
Entire Army team - more support and turnout, particularly at Christl Arena, from our fans.
Army hoops fans - Exciting Black Knight basketball and improvement over the 3-12 (counting post-season tournament) Patriot League mark last year. And, of course, nothing would be a sweeter gift than a two game sweep over Navy.
A safe, happy and healthy holidays to you all....
