Using past experiences, Cody McCurry knows better than to let early season slow starts get the best of his teams.

After Wednesday's 12-1 setback to Green Valley (Nev.) in the last of three games in Las Vegas, the Indians will return to Colorado Springs with an 0-5 record.

McCurry, a senior, isn't worried. Just a few months ago, the reserve guard on the boys' basketball team watched the Indians overcome a 1-2 league start and end up playing in the 4A state semifinals.

"We're going through a rough time, but the point of going to Vegas is to play good teams and show us where we need to get better," McCurry said. "Also, we're having a good time, messing around a little and growing as a team. I know that by the end of the season, we'll be in a better spot."

McCurry and his teammates found themselves in an iconic spot, none other than the Las Vegas Strip this week, enjoying balmy conditions that brought out the short sleeves and left the heavy coats far away.

"I'm 18 years old, walking the Strip and going to Vegas to play a sport I love," McCurry said. "There's no factor of cold, and I got to pitch in a night game, under the lights. Who wouldn't want that?"
