Michael " Country " Johnson prepares to sink one. Pat Appleman springs for a lay-up This year ' s sophomore basketball team proved to be an aggressive, defense-oriented team; allowing their opponents to score an aver¬ age of only 55 points per game. Patience and ball-control were the key factors in the offense. Head coach, Les Sammon, and as¬ sistant coach, Mike Kiss, were ex¬ ceptionally pleased with the un¬ selfishness exhibited by all the players. Players seeing a lot of action this season were Ron Hall, Craig Yeo¬ cum, and Michael Johnson at point guard; Tom Eagle, Craig Pat¬ rick, and Kenny Teague at the wing positions; and Pat Apple- man, Craig Sharp, and Glenn El¬ ston at post positions. 34 Sophomore Basketball
