This years basketball season is right ahead and coach Grant Beatty is hoping for another successful season.
"It's the same thing every year. We just try to find the best twelve players that are going to work together and build a team," said Beatty.
This year the team is going to focus on defense, boxing out, rebounding and most importantly, playing hard.
"I believe that we will do pretty well this season. We all have been playing with each other since we were little so we have some good chemistry," said Diego Villa.
The Bucks opened with a loss to Reno because of miscues.
"Towards the end of the game it dropped off because we started making small mistakes," said Taz Milton.
In spite of the hard work, Derek Espinoza is ready for the season.
"We are still building our team chemistry and getting used to playing with each other again after being split last year," said Espinoza. "But once we get the hang of it, we will do good. I believe we have the right athletes on the team that we need to have a successful season. On top of it all, it's great to be playing together again and I can't wait to see what the season holds for us."
Last weekend their practice paid off with a 50-36 over the Longhorns.
"We're just going to try to get the guys to learn ball and contribute to varsity level for next year," said Beatty. The Bucks are trying to improve in the key areas.
"Communicating with each other, that's the major thing we have problems with," said Milton.
The roster: Max Mavity, Jordan Parker, Tazmin Milton, Josh Leveille, Chance Huitt, Michael Casalez, Preston Snow, Derek Espinoza, Brooks Bergenheier, Diego Villa, Blake Jauregui, and Klay Garner.
