Tech’s head basketball coach, Bob Williams, says his team is eager to begin the season. “We have had 21 practices to date and the kids are excited to go up against somebody else,” said the 12th year veteran coach. “I like this group. Even though we lost an All-American (David Rawlinson), this team is more experienced, bigger and deeper. They have a chance to be good,” says Williams.
Tech is coming off a 20-12 season and finished as A.I.I. runners up, losing in the tournament championship game by a point. Key returnees include senior captain Brandon Burgraff (6’1, G, Matewan, WV), junior captain Jaren “Bubba” Marino (6’3, G, South Charleston, WV), sophomore Eddie Gordon (5’7, G, South Charleston, WV), senior Armond Perez (6’6, F, Chambersburg, PA), and senior Floyd Campbell (6’6, F, Chicago, IL).
Top newcomers include freshman Ra’Shaud Kincaid (5’9, G, South Charleston, WV), junior Leon Cooper, Jr. (6’2, G, Freeport, Bahamas), and junior Jauries Thomas (6’6, F, New Orleans, LA).
Brandon Burgraff led the Gold team to a 55-54 win over the Blue squad in the annual Blue-Gold Game last Friday night. Burgraff scored 18 points and hit the game-winning 3-pointer with two seconds left in the game.
The Golden Bears are an NAIA Division I independent, and also have dual membership with the USCAA. The men’s basketball team will play teams from 6 different states and the District of Columbia. The A.I.I. Tournament will be held at Life University in Atlanta, GA, March 7-9, 2014. WVU Tech hosted the event last March.
“This should be an exciting team. We are more athletic this season and it’s really a great group of kids. They will be fun to watch,” says Williams.
