Welcome to Coach B’s blog: Here’s where you’ll find all the Xs and Os about press, man vs. zone defense, fast breaks, and substitutes. It’s all Pine Crest hoops, all the time! I’ll keep you updated on our mission for a State Championship,  provide you with a sneak peak of our upcoming 2014-15 basketball campaign, and share some knowledge about the ins and outs of the season. I’ll also try to address any pertinent questions along the way that you have about our season, the players, and our coaches.
Soon we will hear the Sounds of the Spaulding Basketballs Bouncing on the Court in the Stacy Gym.
Yes, the season is getting closer and tryouts will begin on Monday 10/27 at 4:00.
As in the past there will be an “Open Gym” held in Stacy on Wednesday 9/17 at 6:00 where College Coaches from around the
country will be visiting our campus to watch and evaluate our players once again.
This is open to the students, family and friends of Pine Crest.
This year’s team is led by Co-Captains 6’0 “AJ” Sacks and 6’11 Antonio Vrankovic who have attracted much of the attention;
AJ at the division three level and Antonio at the division one level.
There has been interest and contact for AJ from MIT, Amherst, John Hopkins, Swarthmore and Williams.
Antonio has created the most interest with scholarship offers from Texas Tech, La Salle, Rhode Island, Lehigh, Towson, William and Mary, American,
Jacksonville, Florida Gulf Coast.  There has also been interest and contact from Yale, Brown, and Penn.
In addition to these schools Northwestern, Vanderbilt ,Wisconsin and Georgetown, have shown interest.
It should be interesting night……
