freshman squad — through
Feb. 18. The coaches try to
measure their success in
terms of improvement and
work habits.
JV coach Ed Okuniewski,
who was brought in to the
program by Krisniski last
year, frequently reminds his
squad that two of last year's
JV starters are now varsity
starters.
"Even though we've been
losing," he says, "our players,
individually, and as a team,
have gotten so much better
. . . not one kid's been down
about it because they know
that we're getting better and
they know that they're gonna
be a part of that varsity team
next year."
The starting point guard
and JV captain is sophomore
Lee Hurwitz. "He's the leader
on the court," says
Okuniewski. "He's the
catalyst. He's the guy that
gets the job done. He'll tell the
guys where to go. He's a
strong leader on the court,
very strong."
Okuniewski has five other
Jewish players on the JV
team, all sophomores. Jon
Weber, a strong outside
shooter, also starts. Weber hit
five three-point shots in a re-
cent game against Hazel
Park. Adam Shapiro, says
Okuniewski with a chuckle, is
"a gem. He's been an up-and-
down kind of player. Now, for
the past two or three weeks,
he's been a steady, strong
player." Shapiro plays two-
thirds to three-quarters of
each game.
Matt Citron is an improv-
ing player, says Okuniewski,
particularly on offense, work-
ing on "his fakes, his drives
to the hole. When he gets
stronger and quicker he can
possibly be a part of the var-
sity program?' Oren Golan
and Gabe Lebbitt are reserve
players giving strong efforts
and improving, according to
the coach.
Freshman coach Doug Zack,
who is Jewish, also coaches
football and softball in the
school district. He had never
coached basketball before last
year. None of his five Jewish
players are starters. Guard
Jason Koenig is the sixth or
seventh man and gets good
playing time. Jeremy Samson
is the backup point guard.
Forward Darron Rosenberg
plays about half the game.
Seth Jackier is a forward and
A.J. Weiner a guard.
Zack is realistic about his
squad. "Talent-wise, we are so
over-matched it's ridiculous
and the kids know it. But I
don't have one kid that has
ever . . . dropped his head and
said, 'That's it: . . . It's tough,
we don't have the kids that

play basketball for their life,
where you do in other school
districts . . . This group I have
this year are really into it.
And we're looking to make
`ern varsity players."
Okuniewski cites similar
goals. "Even though there's
three teams, the freshman,
JV and the varsity, it's one
program and it's one goal,
and that's to get the varsity
going?'
lb that end, the coaches
will start their own basket-
ball camp this summer.
Krisniski says his varsity

team has played up to his ex-
pectations, even though those
expectations exceeded other
people's judgements. "I knew
that we could be a good
basketball team, because we
have some hard-nosed kids
and some kids who play their
roles well. So I have been
pleased, because I expected
this kind of effort. I felt we
could get a couple more wins
though, than we do have. I
always set my goals high?'
Next season, the Barons
hope to set those goals even
higher. 111
