Gladiators moving in right direction Glenelg BOYS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL PREVIEW

December 04, 1992|By Rick Belz | Rick Belz,Staff Writer

Glenelg returns three starters from its best boys basketball team in many years.

Glenelg went 12-12 overall and 6-8 in the league, losing five games by five or fewer points and losing to Walkersville in the regional semifinals by six points.

"We have a good chance of improving upon last season's record," coach Terry Coleman said. "Our whole program is on the upswing. We have a good class of freshmen."

The returning starters are 5-foot-9 senior point guard Jamie Brinker, 6-foot senior guard Scott Cline and 6-2 senior guard/forward Jason Beall.

Brinker creates the tempo. He averaged 5.0 points last season and started every game.

Cline averaged 14.1 points, including 23 three-point baskets. He's a strong open-court player who drives to the hoop well.

Glenelg's only other returning player is 6-3 senior forward Jeff Lewis, who will be looked to for rebounding and defense.

The Gladiators have three promising newcomers up from the junior varsity.

Kevin Curtain, a 6-0 junior guard, led the junior varsity in scoring. Jeff Cline, Scott's brother, is a 6-1 sophomore guard.

And James McKenney is a 6-3 junior forward who averaged 15.0 rebounds for the junior varsity. He'll miss the team's first two games because of academic problems.

PD Forward Brian Meshkin (6-3) is yet another promising junior. His

strengths are rebounding and defense.
