Apr 06 2037: Privateers reach Legends - by LaurensDeGraff on March 7th, 2024

Can't say enough about the fight in my guys. No one was all conference yet we won 32 games and reached the Sweet Sixteen of the Tournament. While it may be more than we can handle with mainstays such as Rains, Lentz, Casillas and Blocker leaving, we can at this moment bask in our accomplishment of 9 straight seasons with 25+ wins, 7 of them 30+, 7 tournament appearances, four conference tournament trophies along the way. Just one losing season in my tenure dating back to 2026. Its been quite a ride.

Oct 16 2036: C C Blank Appreciation Day - by LaurensDeGraff on January 16th, 2024

The first major NBA draftee in our history at overall #6 despite never being an AC performer. We were on him early, and he only garnered other interest when he was a Senior. Early on he showed his versatility playing his entire RS FR season as a shooting guard. With the emergence of others, he moved to PF and for someone who had the expectation of playing poor defense he allowed 46% or less OFG for 3 of his 4 seasons. He scored, rebounded, shot FT very well for a wide, tall mammal and blasted all the other skills. Best of Luck with the Bucks!

Mar 09 2036: So proud of my team - by LaurensDeGraff on January 5th, 2024

My starters missed a total of 24 games this season and the team 30 overall, yet we are promoting and won our second consecutive conference tournament. Especially impressed with the "second" team. Workman, Driver and Mabry have pretty modest SI, but have really come through when needed to come in, with minutes every healthy game and 26 games started. Its been very difficult recruiting lately, but the guys I have are exploding with talent. This will be the 6th tourney in my ten seasons, and we are likely to get our best seeding since 2014. Helps to have one of the games best head coaches, who is still only 36.

Mar 11 2035: Lentz and Casillas come through in the clutch - by LaurensDeGraff on November 10th, 2023

Many fans had given us up for dead, with star PG Rains injured during a squeaky 89-85 win against UMPI in the opener of the conference tournament. Instead of turning to veteran PG Maldonado, SG Lentz took on the role, with Casillas taking his spot at SG. He put the ball on the floor 6 times during an 85-84 win against #25 Iona but scored 26 (Casillas contributing 20). This was quite a new look for us, as Iona had beaten us by 23 and 16 earlier in the season. St. Leo had beaten us by 20+ in our two matches but this time we won by 17 as this time Lentz pulled down 11 rebounds, something never done by one of our guards before to my knowledge, and while the trio was just 5-12 shooting they dished out 14 assists to post combo Blank/Gibbons and Lentz did a bit better on turnovers, with 4. Finally, the Pirates, who owned the only conference win against 41 game winner conference champion Fresno Pacific, did it again, winning by 16 to take the tourney title (our 2nd). Casillas had a much better game than Lentz with 19 but the story here was our bigs with 63 points. Maldonado got in on the action in this one with 8 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Going in to the tournament we were a lackluster #6 on the bubble to make it and we punched our own ticket!
