Panthers Basketball Season Comes to an End, Returners Have High Hopes for Future
The basketball season recently came to an end for the men and women of Greenville. The men’s team ended with an overall record of 15-10 and the women’s team ended 10-15. Unfortunately, neither team was able to gain a position in playoffs; however, as post season training begins for both teams, it’s a good time to reflect on the 2013-14 seasons of both Greenville teams.
The men’s team was well balanced, and a lot statistics were dispersed fairly evenly among the team. Two scorers helped lead the Panther’s this year. Those scorers were returning senior, Ron Harris, and graduating senior, Alex Mumphard. Harris averaged 13.2 points per game and Mumphard averaged 14.1. Mumphard is graduating this spring, and his hard work, leadership, and perseverance will be greatly missed in Greenville’s 2014-15 season. Along with Mumphard, the Panthers will also be losing two sensational senior forwards Tevin Rollins and Anthony Metzler. However, some main contributing players will be making a return next season. Some of those names include returning seniors: Jake Dewitt, Todd Albertson, and Ron Harris. In addition to returning seniors, Greenville’s 2014-15 team will welcome back some other crucial players. Sophomore sharp shooter, Tim Daniel and the dime dropping point guard, Brian Ehresman will both be returning next year as juniors. Daniel averaged 10.7 points this year, and shot an amazing 47.7 percent from three point range. Greenville also has two freshman standouts that will return next year: Nick Trisko and Michael Hohm. At an intimidating six feet and eight inches, Nick Trisko is a force to be reckoned with in the post, and his post-game play next year will be vital for a successful season. When asked, returning junior, Brian Ehresman said, “The fact that we barely missed the post season this year will help motivate us all to work hard as a team in the post season.” The Panthers narrowly lost the final playoff spot to conference rival, Westminster. Only time will tell, but the Panthers have a ton of talented returners, and the 2014-15 season should bring a lot of success.
