Probably not very high expectations from anyone.  Thinking back through the years, even when PN-G had some standout talent, like Wainwright back in the early 80s, Indian basketball teams just didn't win much.

OVER THE YEARS THERE HAS BEEN SOME TALENTED KIDS THAT HAVE DECIDED TO NOT PLAY THAT WOULD HAVE HELPED OUT ALOT AND SOME THAT ARE NOT UTILIZED ALSO.

I JUST KNOW THAT NOBODY TALKS ABOUT LOSING IN BASKETBALL LIKE THEY DO IN OTHER SPORTS.

Usually starts with coaching.  Gotta get the kids motivated and wanting to play the sport.

My HS years we had Jace Wainright, Charlie HUff and Aggie.  we had a BUNCH that didn't play because of pressure from Football.

Additionally, then- not like now- we played till 1 or 2nd week in December (Xmas break) because of playoffs.

I am told there is still the pressure to be football only.  the only exception is baseball because they have a MUCH better program than football.

Remember Nederland has Memorial North in their school zone

That group with the old QB Doty was a hard group to beat.  Doty was the leading scorer in district both his Jr and Sr.years.  They even made the playoffs.  It's just that they didn't have any really good talent outside of Doty and that Nederland was loaded with talent those years....  Not many teams beat them.
