Since Pitt-Greensburg does not have a football team, a lot of school spirit is showcased during the home basketball games. With the season starting, students have seen the cheerleaders perform, the student section fill up, and the Pitt-Greensburg men and women’s basketball team play and show other schools what they are all about.
Jaylen Williams, Guard/Forward for the men’s basketball team, gave some insight on what students should be expecting this season and how he thinks everything will play out. Williams is a senior and is going into his third and final season.
Throughout Williams career, he has averaged eight to eleven points per game, started in 21 games for Pitt-Greensburg, has played in 45 games in total, and averaged over 5 rebounds per game. He also scored a season high-off 19 points in a game against Penn State Altoona on Feb. 9 and played for a season high 36 minutes against Mount Aloysius.
“I feel good about the season,” Williams said.
He believes that they have some talent on their roster.
The boys and girls have started their season already and have played a good amount of games. As of right now, the men’s basketball team has three wins and four losses.
“I feel that we should be doing better, but we’re doing alright,” Williams said.
Throughout the season, Williams said that the thing students should be expecting to see from the team is, “Buckets.”
As a senior, Williams is a veteran for the team. With new players on the team, his insight may help them feel more comfortable this season.
“I’ve been feeling real old, but other than that it feels normal,” Williams said.
At the end of the basketball season comes playoffs with many teams hoping that they can make it in and win the title of conference championships. Williams says that the goal is to make it and earn that title.
