Panthers coming off an 8-19 season, but look to rebound.


Season, some would say, was one to forget for the chico high boys basketball team.

Eight-and-19 overall and one- and-nine in league play... but this year, the team brings a lot more experience.

13 upperclassmen on this roster to be exact... last year, they had just four... the team's leading scorer and rebounder is junior forward stephen schaefer averaging 12 points and eight rebounds per game... this panther squad comes a bit undersized but head coach abe simmons and his team know how to combat that this year... we gotta rebound we're a little undersized and rebounding is going to be crucial we're going to need to do that there's some big strong teams in our league and playing defense and making that our cornerstone... right now we're just trying to focus on playing our gust out every game win or loss our coaches just really trying to instill defense in us right now.

Defense and rebounding wins games the panthers earned their first win tonight beating corning on the road 58-29.

They'll take on albany high school next in the novato tournament starting thursday...
