Men’s B-Ball struggles in inaugural year

January 25, 2011

The Young Harris College men’s basketball team has had some key battles throughout the season and the Mountain Lions will look to be stronger heading into play next season.

For the better part of the season, Young Harris has played six to seven players and that experience will pay off as the team prepares for the 2011-2012 season.

The Mountain Lions began the season in Charlotte, N.C., where Young Harris lost a thriller to Virginia Intermont at the Time Warner Cable Arena – home of the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats. The Mountain Lions returned home a couple days later to shock North Georgia College & State University.

Young Harris got wins over Reinhardt and Atlanta Christian, while taking second at the United Community Bank Christmas Tournament. The Mountain Lions are 3-12 on the season and will look to bounce back with remaining games against Berry College, Tennessee Temple, Tennessee Wesleyan, Brewton-Parker, North Greenville, Southern Wesleyan, Hiwassee College and Brevard College.

Frank Adams is pacing the YHC offense by averaging 22.1 points. Steve Viterbo is second by averaging 17.3 points and 8.3 rebounds. O’Neil Lubin, who has been sidelined with an injury, is averaging 11.7 and Bryson Robertson is scoring 10.9 per game.

The Mountain Lions are averaging 68.1 points, 36.3 rebounds, 11.1 assists, 8.2 steals and 5.7 blocks.
