Basketball Season Preview

December 05, 2014
By KCS Staff
Players go through a series of passing drills in early November.
KCS basketball tips off a little earlier this year, as our girls and boys teams play their first game tonight against Koolau Baptist Academy.
 
Coaching the teams this year are Mr. Kurian and Mr. Miller, who are both motivated to share their own basketball experience with students and make an impact in their lives outside of the classroom.
 
The teams have practiced together since the first week of November.  The coaches have focused on ball control, accurate passes, and high percentage shots.  Although the team is young, coaches have identified teachable attitudes and teamwork as strengths of their players.  They have also seen improvement in ball control and increased endurance throughout the first few weeks of practice.  
 
Displaying a Christ-like attitude through the season is one of the goals put forth by the coaches, as they have adopted Colossians 3:17 as the team verse.  According to the coaches, the verse challenges the team to “portray Christ’s attitude toward the other team during games with our words and with our sportsmanship.”      
 
Come cheer on our teams as they open up league play on our “home court” at Ft. Ruger Gym.  Girls will tip off at 6 pm, while the boys will start at approximately at 7:15 pm.  Go, KCS!
 
Update: Our girls battled hard in the 4th quarter but lost 31-35 to KBA.  KBA beat our boys 73-38.
