NARROWSBURG'S BRUCE NOBER soars past Roscoe’s Brian Ballard (23) for two points as Evan Kraack (50) looks on.

How the Indians Did

By Frank Rizzo

Season Record:
14–5 overall, 10–0 OCIAA Division V, league champs. Lost Class D semifinal to Chester, 65-54.
Starting lineup:
Forward – Ken Emeigh
Forward – Dave Curreri
Center – Chad Powell
Guard – Bruce Nober
Guard – Evan Kraack
Season Highlights:
“We finished 10–0 [in the league], so there were a lot of highlights,” said coach Cliff Kelly. “Early on, when we beat Chapel Field at the Jeff-Youngsville Tournament without Nober it gave me a clear picture — I thought, we can win this.
“Then there was the last-second shot (by Nober) to beat the Family School (72-71 on January 25) and preserve our percent league record.”
Biggest Disappointment:
“The way we matched up to Chester [in the Class D semi].” according to Kelly. “We had lost 76-73 down there (in the regular season) and it had been a good game. I thought we could have won [the semi], but we just couldn’t keep our offense going. It’s a credit to Chester that they played a great fourth quarter defense.
“We would have lost to get to West Point,” added Kelly, referring to Christl Arena, where the sectional championship games are played.
MVP/Most Improved Player:
Kelly said these will be named later on at the athletic banquet.
Statistical Leaders:
Nober averaged 27 ppg, ending his career with 1,519 points. Powell averaged 16.8 ppg and scored 898 points during his varsity tenure. According to Kelly, Powell grabbed about 10 rebounds per game and blocked close to three shots per game.
