yea its sad to see puxico is the same and never changes, coaches are only as good as their players, its takes years to make a great player but citizens cant wait they want it to happen in 1 school yr it wont happen, your lucky to even have a coach

We can't have a great team with only one awesome player and a few good players coach has to use what he gets

Who is suppose to be the one awesome player?? There is not a so-called awesome player I attend every basketball game and whoever posted that comment is either the person that thinks they are the awesome player, or someone who doesn't know what they are talking about!!11 We have a team that has a couple of players this year taht think they are above the rest but I have news for them they are not!!One has turn-over after turn-over every game and another thinks he's the only shooter on the team. And as far as the coach having to use what he gets, well he needs to teach them to play as a team not a 1 or 2 man show..And JIMBOB you're an idiot.

Puxico will never have another winning season because of people like you "citizen". You're the poorest excuse for a citizen a town can have. Always bashing and never supporting. This town is full of cry baby parents who think they know alot more than they do. Its suprises me that someone who didn't even play ball or had to sit the bench when they were on the team becomes an expert when their kid gets on the team. People who want to blame the coach need to look at their own attitude, change it and then we can start a real program!

You people that blame the coach, dont jack about basketball. The people that blame the coaches most likely think that they know everything about basketball, and think they can do a better job coaching. You guys go get your degree, and see how difficult it is to coach. The coach is doing a good job with the boys. The jv is above 500, and nobody thought the varsity would be that good, but every player plays hard on the floor. As for the players, quit talking about them! Every single one of them is doing the best they can. From somebody that has played basketball, and has been around the game a long time, it is difficult to have a successful program when the players that are playing on the floor havent played together in previous years. Look at Bernie, Richland, SCC, the only reason they are so good, is because they have played together for so long,. Give Puxico's coach those players that have played together for so long, and he would have the same success that Bernie, Richland, SCC have. The coach cant get out there and play for the players. How do you guys expect the coach who doesnt have a whole lot of talent to have a winning season? SO, QUIT BLAMING THE COACH

We will never have what people consider a good coach... our reputation is such that no one in their right mind wants to come here...

DSA....if you are referring to me as the one who thinks he is the only shooter on the team than he you dont know anything about basketball. I average 8 assists a game ( if you even know what assists are), how is that thinking I am the only shooter on the team???

I'm new to the puxico scene but from what I can see you have to start when kids are very young. teach them the fundamentels at an early age I'm talking dibbling with your right and left hand with your head up. learn about passing and blocking. The coachs who are teaching our grade school kids are going about it all wrong. 3rd and 4th graders should be taught this before even seeing a basketball hoop. Our high school coaches we get now days don't have that advantage when they get our kids it's to late. He is doing the best he can. J.V. is above 500. I say give the guy a chance. Face it Puxico we are never going to be able to do what the so call Great Coach Arnold Ryan did when he was coaching .... That's get player who did't live in the Puxico school district to play for Puxico. Now day thats consider illegal. So If the coach is doing an ok job I say keep him

I am refering to whoever wrote the comment about the team having one awesome player.I watch every game and I don't see an awesome player that stands out above anyone else. I see a team of boys that all work hard and play hard, but to make a comment like that I don't think shows much respect to team-mates.I don't know who made the comment, but I do know as spectators what we see from the bleachers and lots of games are not a true TEAM effort.Everyone has to remember you're a basketball team. I am proud of all you guys that play, and I don't mean to offend anyone,but the remark I thought was offensive to your team-mates.

I agree that it may have been offensive to my teammates. However, what you said about one player having "one turnover after another every game and another player thinking that he is the only shooter on the team" is also offensive to my teammates.

How STUPID does this post seem? Trying to get rid of a guy who does his all and works hard to make a better team, after reading about the girl planning to shoot kids??
Perspective anyone?

i actually for one have alot of respect for coach crane and our basketball team is so much better than it has been in a long time dowdy was no where compared to crane dowdy just wanted to get mad and yell coach crane actually befriends you and works with you now he is no coach frazier but he doesnt have to be he is what he is and if you have a problem with his team or coaching ethics do you honestly think you could do a better job when the first time you screw up you get the whole town mad at you i think you should check yourself b4 laying the blame on others and if it is a player who posted this than you need to learn how to play instead of blaming the coach for your own faults or if this is a mad parent you need to train your child correctly and puxico shouldnt be such a racist town if you could actually get some color on the team you would have something to go with but yet you all are so racist that you aint ever gonna equal nothing
