"Basketball has given me so much—things that I could (have) never imagined. All of the little things about basketball are the reason why I love it. You know, hearing the net swish, hearing the ball bounce...I mean the love that I have for this game 
is second to none."

— Richaun on what basketball means to him and why the game is so special.

The Coaches Corner

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming."

— Xavier on his favorite quote to live by. Excerpt from Theodore Roosevelt's "The Man in the Arena" speech.

Nici Gilday

Professional Basketball Player

“Try to soak up what you can from those before you. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, don’t be afraid to reach out to people, and try to take advantage of whatever resources you can get as best you can. Experience is the best teacher, and if you can learn from other people’s experiences, it can benefit you even more.”

— Nici on a piece of advice she would
give to her younger self.
