Bill Ballinger is back for another stint at Bishop Manogue. The coach who won 80 games over a four year span, returns to guide the defending Northern Sierra conference champs. Last year the Miners went 26-4 but were eliminated by a talented Clark team in the State Semifinals. They lost their top 3 scorers from last season, however, the cupboard is not bare. BM returns several key players, including big man Curtis Luckadoo and the coaches’ son Cort. Recently I had the opportunity to collect Coach Ballinger’s thoughts on Northern Nevada Basketball, and what his team learned from last season’s semifinal run.
