2000 - 2001 Schedule

Tourney vs Appanoose and Williamsburg

    We began the season with the district tournament and took on district rivals Williamsburg.  We were suffering through a six game losing streak to 'Burg so being down at the half by 3 was a slight concern.  Great defense led by Justin Wheeler allowed us to make a charge in the 2nd half and we went on to a 37 - 25 win.

      The second game had us taking on Appanoose - a team that had beaten us in the previous three match - ups. They won the league championship the previous year and had taken us on a 20-0 run that year to begin a game.  Abe Frieden's 18 points added  with Justin Wheeler's 11 led the team to a 38 - 22 win.

Thursday Nov. 9th 2000
          At MdCV

    MdCV was a team that we had had some success against in the past three years, winning all three games.  They had the score tied 7 -7 after the first quarter, but some long-range shooting from Tanner Nitcher allowed us to build a 30 - 10 halftime lead.  Chad Coffman scored 12 and Nitcher added 9 in a 50 - 30 win.

Thursday Nov. 16th, 2000
          At Williamsburg

   They played us hard the whole way, but some solid defense on a man to man press was able to allow us a mini-run in the 4th quarter and we won 28 - 20.  Nitcher led the team with 11pts, but it was a solid team effort on offense and defense in this win.

         Home vs Scranton

    In our toughest game yet, Scranton battled us the wholeway on our home court and we were unable to deliver the knock-out blow.  The game finished with a 34 - 27 tally, due to some great full court pressure put on by our back-court guards.  Frieden led the team in scoring with 18 points.

Monday, Nov. 27th, 2000
          Home vs Chase County
    Chase County brought in some great height, but a solid effort on our pressed kept them guessing and we were able to deliver a 28-16 home court victory. Scoring was spread around with Justin Wheeler leading the charge with 7 points.  Zeke Thompson added 6 more, and Nitcher, Coffman, and Frieden each added 5.

Thursday, Nov. 30th, 2000
          Home vs Burlingame
    In our most dominating game of the season to this point, we exploded out of the gate to scored 17 points in the first quarter andnever looked back on our way to a 47 - 26 victory.   Frieden led the team with 14 points, and Matt Rand helped out with 10 more.

Thursday, Dec. 7th, 2000
          At Lyndon
    We were told that it had been about 30 years since a Pomona team had beaten a Lyndon hoops squad, but our boys were focused in on getting the job done.  We led 20 - 13 at the half, and rather than worrying about Lyndon going on a run, we put up a 12 - 2 run of our own and came out with a huge 36 - 25 victory.  Abe Frieden had a massive game on the boards, pulling down 12 defensive boards and scoring 12 points.  Matt Rand chipped in another 9 points and the team as a whole played hard defense.
