(Oakland) Riverside boys basketball coach Jason Shelangouski says his team is very ready for the 2012-13 season to get under way. They'll get things going tonight against Bedford. The Bulldogs of Riverside are coming off of a 17-4 season in which they shared the Western Iowa Conference Championship with Treynor. Riverside however was ousted early on in the tournament by eventual state qualifier St. Albert.
This season Riverside returns returns three starters including big man Ricky Williams who led the conference in points (21.9 ppg) and rebounds (12.1 rpg) as a junior. Brady Ryun and Ean Patrick also return with multiple years of starting experience.
Head coach Jason Shelangouski says the #10 ranking by the Sports Spotlight is something he showed his team because they thrive on pressure. He says the team is looking forward to maintaining that spot or even moving up in the rankings as the year progresses.
