    Kiser says
Leadership, good attitude key to winning
By Julie Miller
Of The Print
It takes time and practice to make a
good basketball team.
The players have to know each
other’s moves and think as one player.
Also, hours of scrimaging and a good
mental attitude help reach what’s every
coach’s dream—a winning basketball
“Everybody’s goal at the beginning
of the season has to be to win the
League,” Coach Royce. Kiser said.
“But it’s hard to judge.”
“It takes time to train new players”
Kiser said, noting that it is hard to put
new players on a court and expect them
to take charge. They have to be condi­
tioned to play together as a team and
there has to be leadership.
To Kiser leadership is one of the big­
gest parts of a team. He said returning
players like Jerry Olsen and Doug Cof­
fman are providing that. Kiser said
they set an example for the younger
Kiser said this year’s freshmen are
“reasonably talented and our depth is
as good as we’ve ever had, but the ones
who play have been real talented.” He
added his team is real quick but the
drawback is that the players are not
very big.
The team will play 26 games and
Clackamas is also going to have three
scrimages with three four-year schools:
George Fox, Columbia Christian and
Lewis and Clark.
They have already scrimaged among
themselves. “Defense was adequate,
not good but adequate,” Kiser said,
adding that their shot selection at times
was “poor.” But there are some quick
players and that should be a strong fac­
tor for this year’s team, he said.
Todd Harrington, a 6’4” forward
from Hidden Valley (Grants Pass),
said, “I think everyone is real com­
petitive and I can tell they all want to
win. I think if we can get those re­
bounds we should be tough.”
Other players on this year’s team
are: Tom Bolt, a 6’1” guard from
Clackamas, Ted Dozier, a 6’1” guard
who red-shirted here last year, Jeff
Richards, a 6’1” guard from Beaver­
ton, Doug Coffman, a 5’10” returning
player from last year, Jerry Olsen, a
5’11” returner, Frank Nesbitt, a 6’2”
forward from Clackamas, Bugs
Coughlin, a 6’2” forward from
Oregon City, Lonnie Dennis, a 6’2”
guard from Vernonia and Terry
Newton, a 6’2” guard/forward from
The rest of the team is made up of
Tim Bless, a 6’4” center who red-
shirted here last year, Cary Martensen,
a 6’5” center from Canby, Roger
Thompson, a 6’7” center from La
Salle, Terry Frison, a 6’5” center from
Grant and Steve Hansen, a 6’6” center
from The Dalles.
The guys on the team have high ex­
pectations about this year. Olsen said,
“We have four players from last year,
this year we have almost all new guys
but I feel pretty good about the team.”
The first game is with North Idaho
on Nov. 24. Kiser said they are tough
but it should be a good game.
