Greater Allegheny Men’s Basketball Looks Forward to 2014-15 Under New Leadership

McKeesport, Pa. - Under the direction of newly appointed head coach Tyler Care, the 2014-15 Penn State Greater Allegheny's men's basketball team looks forward to a fast and exciting style of play as they approach the first regular season game, Saturday afternoon. 

Coach Care brings Greater Allegheny experience from Penn State Beaver, Community College of Beaver County and California University of Pennsylvania to contribute to the production of the Lion's own program philosophy.

"There are a great group of guys returning to the squad this year, along with some fresh faces to surprise some people, said head coach Care. The group as a whole has their eye on the prize, as they are in the hunt for a PSUAC and USCAA title."
"The floor will see a fast, aggressive push to conduct a very exciting style of basketball. The players will be a little old-school in the way of discipline, but new-school in the way of competing in a quick, fun style of basketball."
Coach Care extends, "The fans are going to enjoy the style of play Greater Allegheny will bring to Wunderley Gymnasium."
Greater Allegheny will see a tough schedule ahead, as they play two Division II including Carlow twice. "These games will prepare us for Penn State University Athletic Conference play."
"Goals for the season ahead include winning the PSUAC, making the national tournament and compete as long as we are able. We are very eager to play some different opponents to better ourselves for the bigger picture."
Greater Allegheny looks to open their regular season, Saturday, as Westmoreland County Community College comes to Wunderley Gymnasium for a 3 p.m. tip-off.
