Tiger boys basketball team prepares for Jamboree

Modified: Thursday, Nov 29th, 2012

Coach Rich Murray at Saturdays preseason scrimmage. Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, Tigers and Lady Tigers will be hosting the Tiger Jamboree.

Five seniors return along with four junior and sophomore letterwinners return for Tiger boys basketball head coach Rich Murray. After missing state two of the past three years, Murray feels NCHS might be on the right track again, ďI would like for this to be a start of a four year run where Tiger basketball can win close to100 games, maybe 100 is pushing it, but Iím not sure 90 isnít pushing it.Ē

Travis Smith, Grady Penfield, Colter Larson and Kevin and Craig Christianson all played a lot of minutes and are expected to be leaders and replace graduated senior Ryan Pratherís 17 points per game. Travis was the teamís leading rebounder and third leading scorer while Kevin was second in rebounds and fourth in scoring. Both Craig and Grady are expected to provide solid senior leadership and improve their presences as defensive stoppers. Colter is recovering from a broken leg and is likely unavailable until after the Christmas break. His tough inside play will be a welcome return for the Tigers.
