Re: Servite basketball or whatever you want to call it

Talking to some of my coaching friends that are still close to the game in OC and they have heard that Coach Morris is leaving after this year and moving out of the area? Seems like that may be a good decision for all. It’s really strange to read the accounts and feelings the Servite faithful have a...

Re: Servite basketball or whatever you want to call it

Time will tell at JSerra. Lost his really good transfer Martinez with an injury and they lost 5 of their last 6. Have to give Coach Wilkinson a chance to see if he can build a program and coach against Mater Dei, SM, and Bosco, etc.

Re: Servite basketball or whatever you want to call it

I also feel it is incredibly misguided to think you have to pay a talent acquiring club coach to have a competitive basketball team in the Trinity League. As long as Mcknight is at MD the best talent looks their first. A coach that knows how to win, develop players, network in the school and basketb...

Re: Servite basketball or whatever you want to call it

Wow. One would have to believe kids like Prukop, these twins, and other legacies would be at Servite if the program was solid on the court. If the program is really good they would not only get good legacy players, but many other quality players parents would want to send them to the school, and int...

Re: Servite basketball or whatever you want to call it

I have been out of the area for a while, but it seems like Servite could easily improve and in a couple of years be very competitive with the right coach. Traditionally, some families will be drawn to the discipline and character develop that Servite offers. Being in the Trinity League is also a hug...

Re: Servite basketball or whatever you want to call it

So, the question remains, does the school want a winning basketball program? If they do, what will attract a quality coach to take this program over? The program is in the dumps, their facility is average, and they are an all boys school. Those are some serious challenges. Who is out there and avail...

Re: Servite basketball or whatever you want to call it

Also - this Servite team is more talented than the past few. Coach Morris does get them to play and compete hard. It will be tough with only one league game against each opponent to snag a win because all 5 games are super valuable. Talent wise the other 5 teams are very similar and I expect that 4-...

Re: Servite basketball or whatever you want to call it

First - the Whittell Tournament is a mid level tournament, in Nevada. Well run, but the competition is just ok. Spanish Springs is currently #1 in Nevada and #35 nationally on MaxPreps because they are 6-0. The MaxPreps computer system simply does not have enough results in yet to generate accurate ...

Re: Ben Affleck at Mater Dei basketball practice?

Any chance Coach showed Ben how to ask for new refs when the game isn’t going his way and if the request is not honored how to pull his team off the court?

Re: Gary McKnight stinks as a coach

McKnight runs the program and Quinn coaches the team. Great combo led by Coach McKnight who maximizes their strengths. The success and duration is amazing. Was disappointed to see them lose Assistant Coach Rusty Van Cleave. His success at Foothill was amazing and he was such a positive addition to t...

Re: Servite - priorities

I suppose it makes sense that the school will allow the new President to review the basketball situation. Any new hire at Servite would certainly want to have the new President as part of the process. No?

Re: Servite - priorities

Playing hard is playing with a sense of urgency, for me. What I mean by Servite playing hard is they hustle, dive on the floor for loose balls, run the floor hard in both directions, cut hard on offense. There are plenty of talented teams playing hard and with urgency. In the Trinity I would say MD ...

Re: Servite - priorities

itsmyopinionx- I have seen his teams play and they play hard, but Servite teams have always played harder than most. Based on the record alone a change would be good for the coach and good for the school. I realize the mission is lager than wins and losses, but hearts and minds can't help but feel t...

Servite - priorities

No disrespect intended here, but it is very clear to anyone paying attention now (and in the past) that Football is a major priority at Servite.

Re: Servite admin in hot water

Good post itsmyopinion, if Servite is going to make a move toward improved basketball they need to get moving. JSerra is interviewing this week and will probably make their hire soon after. Word is the Crean coach is the front runner so that will open up the Crean job, which is also attractive. Good...

Re: Servite admin in hot water

I have heard every excuse possible from the coaches and other Servite apologizers as to why they aren't winning in hoops. There is no excuse for 6-54. I get not taking senior transfers, not scholarshipping as many athletes a MD/Bosco, or not lowering your admission standards. I also understand their...
