NEWPORTâ€“When was the last time you saw a member of the North Country basketball team dunk a ball?
In the three years since I have been covering the team I had yet to see it happen, but when I stopped by the NCU gym to chat with coach Brian Bonvechio, I finally saw it.
Freshman Kendrick Gray soared down the lane, went up, and came down with a thunderous one-handed slam, ushering in a new era and attitude of Falcon basketball.
NEWPORTâ€“This year it is going to be about the doing the little things right for the North Country girl's basketball team.
"I emphasized to the girls that the little things are going to make a difference this season," said coach Christiane Brown. "Making our lay-ups, pushing the ball forward, not losing who we are guarding and finding a body to box out. The little things are going to be what puts us over the top this season.
"I want us to put points on the board, but it is going to be all of the things that lead up to that are what's important to me."
