No wins yet for Coach Durst. I guess we can’t expect miracles and for an immediate turn-around of the fortunes for Youngstown State. So far the Penguins have played poor defense. If they can’t start playing D, it’s going to be a long year. Thus far, the center position has produced the most. Steven Puzey, a senior, and freshman Jamal Grady have combined to average 21 ppg and 11 rpg, although Puzey has been most dominant in the first two games. But they’ve been outplayed by their opponents, so again defense is a big deficiency.
I’ve been unable to have an in depth talk with Coach Durst, but Raymond Harrington, 1st assistant coach, has told me that the team still isn’t playing together well as a unit. He feels that is going to take some time and therefore they aren’t overly concerned about the team’s pre-conference record, but hope the Penguins will be competitive by the time league play rolls around.
