J.R. Holmes

first_imgRecently J.R. Holmes, the head basketball coach at Bloomington South High School, passed the legendary Jack Butcher as the winningest coach in Indiana boys basketball.  This win total was 807 which when this article appears I am sure will be higher since Bloomington South is one of the state’s 4A favorites to reach the state finals.Butcher was a coach at Loogootee and has been retired for several years.  Holmes began his coaching career at Cannelton High School in the early 70’s.  Some people will argue that Holmes reached this level simply because he has coached that long.  My theory is, you only get to coach this long if you keep winning.  In Indiana, you win or you find something else to do.Congratulations to J.R. Holmes for the basketball program he has developed at Bloomington South High School.last_img read more

Moyer is wearing a protective boot on his left ankle and is not in uniform.Moyer, who started the first 20 games of the season for SU (16-8, 5-6 Atlantic Coast), did not start two weeks ago at Pittsburgh due to a left ankle sprain. He has not started SU’s last four games, as freshman Marek Dolezaj slotted into his place. Dolezaj averages 4.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.Over his last three games off the bench, Moyer has played 34 minutes and scored just two points. When asked last week about whether Dolezaj would continue to start, head coach Jim Boeheim did not waver.“Well let’s see,” Boeheim said. “Matt played 19 minutes (against Virginia). He has zero, zero, zero, 0-for-4, yeah. I’d say so.”With Moyer out and freshman forward Bourama Sidibe still battling tendinitis, former walk-on Braedon Bayer could see time. Boeheim has said Bayer will see the floor, but he played only one minute at Louisville on Monday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTip between the Orange and Demon Deacons (9-15, 2-10) is slated for 1 p.m. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
