Christmas Wish List

Post by oldtimer on Mon Dec 19, 2011 3:22 pm

With Christmas quickly upon us, what would you like to see over the next ten games? What would be on your Pilot "wish list"?

1) A complete recovery of Rileys knee.
2) Continued health to the players
3) Keeping turnovers around 10 a game.
4) Better perimeter pressure, limiting opponents 3's
5) A 7-3 record
6) That we can at least show a resemblance of last years 3 point percentage. Imperative that we develop an outside threat.
7) A win tonight!!!!!!
Cool Someone to drop off a nice IPA sixer in the next two hours. Laughing
9) That everyone has a very Merry Christmas

My wish is that this season and losing stretch doesn't dispirit the players and coaches, and doesn't cause the fans and administration to overreact. rendeer

I was just going to say the same thing. I think that it is important to see and appreciate progress. Just look back to the 2006-2007 season, when we had an extremely young team with last years seniors being freshman with Nik a first year sophomore. We struggled, with only 9 total wins and 5 out of conference things were difficult, but then the next season we put some nice W's together and competed. I haven't been able to watch many games and there are definite holes in our game, but there are bright spots too, and putting together 40 solid minutes is one of the hardest things for a young team to learn, but it will come. I have complete faith in our team and our coaching staff. I am also optimistic for the rest of the year, especially conference play. So I guess what I am asking Santa for is a little confidence for the the players, fans, coaches, team and all those who make decisions that could affect the future of Pilot Basketball

Now THAT, my friends, is a team oriented player. He could have wished for the high individual game scratch, high individual game handicap, to become the league's points leader, or even just to win a bunch of money on monte carlo night. But does he? NO!! He wants the TEAM to win the championship. That's what I'm talking about!

Onto my list:
1) Confidence - just play ball fellas!
2) A step up in the defensive awareness - that will get us through stretches where shots aren't falling.
3) Nem's swagger back.
4) Continued development and maturing of our young guys, especially Kevin, Cason, and Thomas.
5) Blessings to all the players, coaches, students, and fans of Pilot basketball during this holiday season and in the new year!

Good list 54!

The great common thread or theme about everyone's list is it appears the PN regulars are hanging in there and not being dispirited (good word UP7587) by our record. I've always said the true fans support the kids and their development; if they can be competitive and win a few, well, that's just all the better.

Blessings to everyone! sunny

Last year this would have been killing me; I have a tendency to let games impact my mood sometimes. This year though, I'm spending a lot of time salivating at the thought of how this team will look over the next 2 years. We're gonna take some hits this year; we have 3 upperclassmen. But we're gonna learn a lot and be good to go in years to come. Like others have said, I hope the administration, coaches, players, and fans aren't too upset by our record; we have a bright future.

Last time we were making wishes on this thread was during the 2011-12 schedule when the Pilots finished the preseason at 3-11 and faced Gonzaga in the first WCC game of the season.

With Cal State Fullerton yet to play before this yearís regular season begins, and the team at 7-7, what are your wishes for the next couple of months of play?

For now, my wish is for everyone to have a joyous Christmas and that we remember to take a moment to remember those who may not be with family at this time of year, but instead are ensuring we can enjoy the holiday season with our loved ones.

Will Maupin already has this year's wish for us.

10. Portland Pilots (7-7)
Last week: L 67-56 vs. Seattle, W 54-39 vs. Florida A&M
This week: Dec. 29 at Cal State Fullerton
Previous: 10th

Wish: For it all to just be over already.

If weíre being honest, the most impressive thing Portland has done this season could well be holding a team below 40 points. But for that to be impressive, you have to take it completely out of context. So, letís do that.

But seriously, this season is lost. And that sucks, but itís okay. The Pilots are young. Thereís not a senior on the roster. Maybe most of these guys come back next season and the Pilots can take a step forward. Hold onto hope, Portland.

Strange he ranks USF ahead of Gonzaga unless he's just trying to be contrarian. Gonzaga is the best hands down.

My wish is for 3 or more wins in WCC. I believe KenPom has the Pilots at a major dog in 15 games with homes games against Pepperdine, Santa Clara and Pacific as possibilities.

The Pilots have an unopened gift under the tree named Crisshawn Clark. Really hoping this dude can get into the lineup soon, Iíd like to see what he brings to the table.

Taki certainly wishes he were playing more, and Crisshawn has stayed in Portland during the Christmas break to work on his conditioning and game in hopes of suiting-up for the BYU game on January 10th in Provo.†

I think he knows everyone is expecting him to bring some leadership to the team, but he also realizes it has been so long since he's actually played a competitive game, it may take many weeks for him to get his legs under him and start performing as well as he knows he can.

Ha. Well, I'm not all that familiar with the case, but it didn't sound totally out of line from what I read about it.

Looking forward to seeing him in action soon.
