6C Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter BASKETBALL, from page lC If there were a magical play in her playbook Weber must have found it as she guided the team to a 45-19 win over the Viks, a win that put Greenville back above .500 and saw senior Brooke House lead all scorers with 22 points off 11 baskets. Other scorers for the Lady Indians were Shasta Banchio (7), Destiny Lyman (6), Hannah Lambach (4), McKenna Cook and Sydney McIntosh (3). Providence 38, Greenville 28 For the Lady Indians it was a case of too little too late in their battle with Providence last week as the Lady Lions held Greenville to just three points in the first half, allowing just a bucket from Lambach and a single free-throw from Lyman in the first eight minutes. The Lions were so effective at curtailing the Indians' offense that they held Greenville scoreless in the second period. House, who has historically been a high-scorer for Greenville this season, was finally set loose in the fourth period and went for it, scoring five of her six two-pointers and finishing the night with 12. Lyman followed with nine and Lambach ended the game with four. Banchio put up a bucket in the third period for her only score of the game and Farris Smith rounded out the game with a free throw penciled in for the 38-28 final tally. Both the Indians and Lady Indians will host Chester today, with tip-off set for 4 p.m., and CORE Butte on Friday, starting at 4 p.m. as well. Quincy boys' basketball Quincy 68, Maxwell 54 Despite Maxwell's best attempt to derail the train that has become the Quincy Trojans boys' basketball squad, the Panthers were unable to seal the deal last week as Quincy head coach Mike Woodlee guided his team to a 68-54 win and a 1-0 record in Mid-Valley League standings. A big part of the win for Quincy came courtesy of the trio of Brady Rick, Jakob Grammer and Jake Rick after each logged double-digit scoring efforts and led the team in rebounding, steals and blocks. At anchor for the Trojans was Brady Rick, who scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds on both sides of the court for his double-double. Right behind Brady was Grammer, who continued his high-scoring attack for the eighth time in 13 games so far, with 19 points. Freshman Jake Rick rounded out the top scorers with 15 points -- nine of which came from beyond the three-point line. The score throughout the game a little too close for comfort for Woodlee, however. He added that the tone of the game changed near the end of the match-up. "We had a very good fourth period, let's put it that way," Woodlee said after the game. A good fourth period it was, indeed, as the Trojans outshot the Panthers on a 23-10 run, sealing the deal for Quincy after they only led by four at the half break and by a single p6int at the end of the third period. Though the Trojans stand firm today at 11-6 overall, Quincy is currently ranked second in MVL standings thanks to a Dec. 13, 2014, loss to Portola, a team that is 1-0 in league, but 7-6 overall. The Trojans may get a chance to avenge that loss Jan. 27 when they host the Tigers. Portola boys' basketball Portola 41, Esparto 13 The Tigers relied heavily on the quartet of Evan Leal, Kodi Lowdermilk, Juan Rodriguez and Chris Avalos in Portola's 41-13 league victory over the winless Esparto Spartans last week. On the offensive side of the game, Leal led the Tigers with 13 points while Lowdermilk put up 12 of his own in the win. Defensively Rodriguez and Avalos combined for 24 rebounds and each had a steal The results for the Tigers match with Chester on Tuesday were not available by press time. Portola will host Maxwell at 6:30 p.m. this Friday night. Greenville's Hannah Lambach Photo by Greg Knight goes toe to toe with a pair of Herlong defenders last week. BRADE, from page 2C process for the Class of 2015? A. Coaches Bryon Hughes and Bill Abramson have been involved in taking care of recruiting since the change in head coaches was expected. They have brought in 16 new players so far that weren't here in the fall, so that puts our numbers just above 50. This week we are starting off right away with the kids we have here in Quincy by getting them in to the gym and throwing the ball around and working out. We'll also be conditioning and doing strength training and working on our speed. It'll be a lot of work on paper until we can get out on the field in the spring. Q. What is your philosophy when it comes to working with your players on a day-to-day basis? A. I am looking forward to getting to know each young man personally and they should feel welcome to knock on the door and come in and see me. I want them to be comfortable with me and let me know about their background, or their family, or what is going on in their lives. That personal relationship is key at this level Q. Your last head coaching job was 10 years ago at Rainy River Community College in Minnesota and your most recent position was as a coach with the Pop Warner program in New York. Can you talk about your time in Minnesota and beyond? A. When I was head coach in Minnesota, the football program there lasted a total of six years, of which I led during the middle two years. It really was not a good situation for the community or the college because we had no football facilities, no real weight room, no locker room and we had to play our games at a local high school. Football was basically brought in to keep the doors open at the college, as an enrollment strategy, adding 60 to 80 guys who would show up and be the financial saving grace. There was no real funding and no real staffing behind us. After that experience and spending three years as the full-time right-hand man at Morrisville State College in New York, I decided I needed to be involved in my son's entry into football at the ... youth league level since I might never get the opportunity to coach him again It was great to be able to mentor him and work with other coaches at that level Now, I am ready to go forward with Feather River. Q. What is your vision of "Golden Eagle pride" and , the level of discipline and " ' , respect you expect from your players? A. I believe in setting high expectations, though I am not a big rules guy because players can find loopholes to rules. It will never be a case of "you can't do this" or "you can't do that" because they will find ways around it. Setting high expectations means I expect my players to be at every class. If you miss class you will miss game time. If you miss enough of them you can focus on being a student rather than a student-athlete. I expect our young men and coaches to be appropriate in the way they act and the way they speak in the community, on campus and during practice and game day. The things that really get me are hearing the Lord's name in vain, I don't like to hear the F-word and I absolutely don't like to hear any racial slurs I don't use that language and I expect my players and coaches to abide the same way. When players or coaches do things like that in the community it paints a bad image of the institution as a whole My goal is that when you see a player in the community you say to yourself"what a good young man" and they are respected by the way they carry themselves.
