    Saturday’s basketball game between the St. Catharine College Patriots and the visiting University of Rio Grande is not one that either coach will want to use as a textbook example of shooting proficiency. St. Catharine shot 26 percent from the field while Rio Grande found the mark just 30 percent of the time.

    But in the end the Red Storm prevailed 56-51 after seeing an 18-point second half lead completely disappear. The win gave Rio Grande a 5-3 record while the Patriots evened their record at 6-6.

    The Washington County Commanders and Commanderettes lost a double-header against Taylor County to start the 2008-09 basketball season.


    The Commanders lost 86-59 to a Taylor County team loaded with size.

    "They're (Taylor County) one of the top teams out there right now," said WC head basketball coach Paul Bodenhamer after the game. "They're tough, we just don't have the size to match."

    To use an old cliché, one might say that the St. Catharine College Patriots are the best 1-10 team in the state. At this early juncture of the season, J.T. Burton’s team is probably the only team with 11 games played as the Patriots became road warriors last week with five games in seven days.

    Now is a time for giving thanks

    Well, it's that time of the year where we give thanks for all the blessings we have and stuff ourselves with turkey, dressing and all the fixings until we're nearly ready to burst. This has been a year of major changes for me, some good and some bad, but for the most part, it's been a year of blessings for me.
