Chucks stressing defense and intensity in first week

November 26, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy boys' basketball team — which features a half-dozen football players — is looking to use the school's football success as a jumping-off point in 2010-2011, rather than worrying about last year's struggles on the hardword.

The Chucks finished 4-17 overall in 2009-2010, including 0-12 in the D9 League. But rather than looking back to last season, Punxsy has its sights set on the year at hand under first-year head coach Dirk Neal

As the Chucks are a few days into their first week of 2010-2011 preseason, the words of Dan Gable are often spoken by head coach Eric Eddy and assistant coach Buddy Young, who have been coaching Punxsy wrestling for nine years now.
