  • March basketball brings about optimism in small-school boys coaches

    Way back in November, before the boys' basketball season started counting wins and losses, Ken Vecchio got the first chance to see his young Manitou Springs squad in a scrimmage setting. Not that he was totally discouraged by what he saw, but the longtime coach had to wonder where his team, which had lost five seniors after a 2014 3A...

  • Sierra wins tight game to advance in 4A boys' hoops playoffs

    During its 18-game winning streak to end the regular season, Sierra rarely had to break much of a sweat in the fourth quarter. On Friday, the Stallions found something new in a grind-it-out, 47-41 home victory over Silver Creek in a Class 4A boys' first-round playoff game. "Heart, really just heart," said Sierra senior Ke'andre Lewis, who...

  • Klee: Former Ivy League coach Dunn has many stories to tell Stallions

    They know they are fortunate. They know his history, that he once coached Chauncey Billups at CU, that he has coached from Air Force to the Ivy League, that he has basketball stories to fill a book - a series of books, even. They know a lot about Terry Dunn, but for now the 19 boys packed into a classroom at Sierra High School just know that...

  • Ramsey: Lewis-Palmer's Charlie Hovasse conquers opponents with an exotic knee

    As Charlie Hovasse kneeled at the scorer's table, he realized he had triumphed. He had not yet entered the game Feb. 4 against Vista Ridge. He had yet to score a point, grab a rebound or help his Lewis-Palmer Rangers to a victory this season. He still knew. "That was the happiest moment," Hovasse says. "I thought about the challenge that I...

  • 4A PPAC co-champs go separate ways in playoff brackets

    Sand Creek won the 4A Pikes Peak Athletic Conference on a tiebreaker. Air Academy was second. So when Sunday's 4A boys' basketball brackets came out it made perfect sense that the Kadets should be seeded above the Scorpions, right? Yeah, Sand Creek coach Mark Bowers didn't think so either. In 5A, Rampart dropped its final regular-season...
