IUSB Titans 2007-2008 Campaign Now Underway

Posted by iusbvision on November 16, 2007

The IUSB Titans men’s and women’s basketball programs are underway for the 2007-2008 season.
There is a new man calling the plays for the men’s basketball program. Head Coach Dennis Parks takes over for Micah Shrewsberry after leading the Niles High School team to two divisional championships. Shrewsberry resigned in April in order to take the position of Coordinator of Basketball Operations at Butler University. Coach Parks takes over a Titan team that went 11-18 last year.

Head women’s basketball coach Steve Bruce returns for his second year this season. The Lady Titans are looking to rebound from an 8-22 season last year.

Both teams will need players to step up and fill roles left by productive seniors who graduated last year. The women’s team will need to replace the 9.1 points and 3.9 rebounds and steals per game provided by two-team all-CCAC honorable mention award winner, Stacy Spurgeon. Bruce will probably look to senior Jennifer VanderZanden to take up the slack. Last year Jennifer made the first team all-CCAC team for the second straight year.

The men’s team will need to replace all-CCAC first teamers Hubert Gentry and Jeremy Herring. Gentry and Herring were responsible for over 25 points and 11 boards per game. Keep your eye on senior, Dewey Brown who won honorable mention honors in the CCAC while scoring 13.4 points per game last year.

This season will be challenging for the Titans as they only have three upperclassmen, one senior and two juniors. The Lady Titans roster is bit more top heavy with nine upperclassmen including five seniors.
