Bucks Men’s Basketball team finished the 2018-2019 season at 6-17.

The Centurion’s conference record was 3-5. The team is coached by Dominic Farrell in his second season as Bucks’ head coach. Farrell is assisted by Frank Copestick and Ryan Charity. After a 12-12 record in the 2017-2018 season, their record falls short this year. The leading scorers this season were Keith Howard who averaged 17 points per game and Sophomore Adjewoda Sanoumega with an average of 13 points per game.

Sanoumega said, “The season didn’t go as I expected because we didn’t have a lot of guys as we thought we were going to have. We only played 6-8 players every night. The most memorable part of the season will have to be sophomore night, and we got a good win against a team we lost to last year and plus there were so many people there to support and celebrate my sophomore night and it was also the first game and time my parents ever saw me play.”

The team’s biggest win was 89-62 over Delaware Technical Community College and the worst loss saw Bucks lose 103-50 to Harcum College. The team plays in the NJCAA conference and it is a very big commitment to play with practices and games almost every day. Some games require travel two hours each way and they return to Bucks very late.

“The season hasn’t been as great as we expected,” said sophomore team member Elijah Pittman. “I feel that I’ve improved a lot since last season and it’s disappointing that we didn’t make the playoffs this year.” They had hoped to play past the first game of playoffs but did not get a spot this year.

The Centurions graduate five of their 12 players this year. They are; Kevin Fagan of Bensalem Township, Ronald Garrison of Bristol Township, Parker Kelley of Bristol Township, Elijah Pittman of Philadelphia, Pa and Adjewoda Sanoumega of Philadelphia, Pa. The Centurions will have six returning players, four of which are guards and two are forwards as they begin to build next year’s team.

“The team can improve by just working hard in the offseason and building that team chemistry,” said Sanoumega. “It will be a new start with incoming players and those remaining. The team will start fresh in the Fall.

“The season runs from November through February and workouts happen throughout the Fall to get ready for the season.
