Will Harold13Five of the hardest basketball days of their life ended Friday and now the AVC Basketball team’s has just finished a relaxing three day weekend. Now, are they ready for week two? 

Just before the workout began heard the guys complaining about the three day weekend.  “Too d…m long.”  Don’t know if they were complaining about missing a day of classes or workouts. They were all here and raring to go today. 

Getting Skinny

ace...weightI need a set of new glasses.  Big, tall man walked into gym about 30 minutes before workout.  Waved at me.  Which one of the five Bigs is that?  He headed over to say hi.  I’ll be, it is Ace Warren, he must be down to 250 on hisJessie Burns3 6’10” frame.  Jessie Burns, 6’8” rolled in early this summer some where around 280.  He is a block of a man.  He is just a massive person.  My guess he is down to 265.  I believe that 250 is his ideal weight without cutting into his muscle, skin and bones.   

Freshman Phenomenon

Some are far ahead than others.  A year playing college basketball sure makes a huge difference over the freshmen just out of high school.

You Were Warned!
