Tigers prepping for Nov. 30 home opener

Medina Journal-Register — LYNDONVILLE - Led by new coach Brian Lang the Lyndonville Tigers are getting set to open the season at home on Nov. 30 with a non league game against Univeristy Prep of Rochester.

Senior Austin Bane is the lone returning starter for the Tigers which also return some varsity experience in seniors Joey Sunday and Justin Ottaviano.

Graduation wiped out most of the Tigers starting lineup including Genesee Region League All-Star honoree Jaiqwan Dash, Jimmy White and Matt Hungerford.

The Lyndonville lineup also includes senior Robert Hopper, juniors Muna Mansur, Evan Milleville, Patrick Hinkson and Justin Edwards along with sophomores Phillip Gresham, Ty Hrovat and Brandon Schoolcraft.

“It’s definitely a young, inexperienced group,” said Lang, who is a former Tiger himself. “We’re going to try and use our size and speed as a strength. We’re going to be quick and fast paced and make the other teem play at our tempo. We’ve got a lot of role players and a lot of guys who can play multiple roles. One thing is for certain, we’re going to be a scrappy team and relentless on defense. We’re not going to let up.”

The Tigers will also visit Webster Christian on Dec. 4 and host Barker on Dec. 7 before opening the Genesee Region League season at home on Dec. 11 against Wheatland-Chili.

“My goal is to establish our Lyndonvilel basketball program as a strong, disciplined team,” said Lang ho is a 2005 Lyndonville graduate.
