Oct. 30 — Some people think winter sounds like falling rain, howling wind and Christmas carols, but basketball fans know the real sounds of winter are basketballs bouncing off a gym floor, a buzzer screaming at halftime and the echoes of a screaming crowd bouncing off the walls of a packed gymnasium.

It’s that time again, and the Lassen Community College men’s basketball team is ready to welcome fans back into its gym and give them an impressive show of talent and skill.


This year’s team welcomes five returners: Marvin White, who was the leading scorer on last year’s team, Juandrico Walker, who head coach Devin Aye described as “probably the best athlete in the state” and led the state in blocked shots last year, TJ McCauley, Leroy Anderson, who played on the team in 2012-2013 and was awarded All-Conference, and Sammie Allen, the second leading scorer from the 2012-2013 conference championship team.


“It’s nice to have five returners and they all play different positions too, so I can put them all out there on the floor at one time and know they know what’s going on … they’ve been doing a great job leading. Last year, our main problem was leadership. This year, the leadership is awesome, work ethic is awesome. We’re very deep. We’ve got two to three guys at every position. They can come in and there’s no let down or anything. They’re very, very intelligent basketball players, as well as talented and athletic. Last year’s team was talented, but at times couldn’t really make adjustments in game, whereas this team is very, very intelligent, as well as talented and deep … there’s really nothing I can’t say that I don’t like about the team,” Aye said.
