With a losing season the last couple of years, the Bearcats decided to hire a new head coach for the boys basketball varsity team. They decided to hire a former player (one who was one of the best basketball players to come through Paso) Derrick Jasper. In high school, Jasper averaged 18.6 points,7.4 rebounds,6.9 assists,1.8 steals,and 1.2 blocks per game in his varsity career. In college, at The University of Kentucky in the 2006-2007 season, he averaged 3.9 points,3.6 rebounds,2.9 assists,0.2 blocks, and 0.9 steals per game. In the 2007-2008 season, he averaged, 4.2 points,5.5 rebounds,2.4 assists,0.9 blocks, and 0.7 steals per game. Then after that season, he transferred to UNLV. IN the 2009-2010 season, he averaged 6.7 points,4.9 rebounds,2.9 assists,0.4 blocks, and 1.1 steals per game. And in his senior year at UNLV, he averaged 5.1 points,4.2 rebounds,1.8 assists,0.3 blocks, and 0.8 steals per game. He was also a assistant coach at Texas Tech University. With a lot of experience of both playing and coaching. You can see why he was chosen for the job. Last season, the Bearcats were 6-17. Their home game record was 1-7, and their away game record was also 1-7. So you can see why they were in dire need of a new head coach. While on the other hand, the rivals, the Atascadero Greyhounds, were 16-11 last year with a home record of 6-4. And with of an away record of 5-4.
