Can You Lend Us An Assist?

It's been about 6 years of running CWOSSABasketball.com, and it's time for some changes -- in a positive way. With some additional time to dedicate to the site this year, there's a few things I'm looking at accomplishing and improving during the 2015-16 season. Of course, considering the expenses associated with the following, I'll need your help along the way:

#CWOSSARoadTrip: Stretching from Delhi through to Wiarton, my goal for this season is to visit EVERY CWOSSA school that fields a basketball team (keeping in mind there's 60 or so!) for at least one game during the 2015-16 (girls or boys) season. Along with reporting on the game that I see that day, I also hope to include additional features or information about a student, the school itself, or the surrounding area (not necessarily basketball related). Some of the funds raised will be used to offset the expenses associated with this massive project.

OFSAA Coverage: Helping to defray the cost of attending the OFSAA championships (boys and girls) in Windsor this coming year, and reporting on things from a CWOSSA-specific perspective.

Photos/Videos/Highlights: Hiring an individual (and/or company) to provide game highlight videos that will be posted on the website. My goal is to start with major games (championships, etc.) and have highlights of other games if funding allows.

Website Improvements: Although the blogger platform is functional, I would like to switch to a more professional look. Any funds left over after the first several items will be put towards this purpose.

Whether you can spare $2, $5, or $25, any donation is appreciated to help continue the promotion of CWOSSA Student Athletes. Please take a look at the Indiegogo Crowdfunding link for CWOSSABasketball.com here, and thanks in advance for your support!

NCAA: Johnson's Three Ball Helps Seal Bucknell's NIT Upset of Arizona

Bucknell's Bryson Johnson (St. David '09) hit a clutch three-pointer with just under 1:00 to play in regulation as the Bucknell Bison travelled to Arizona and pulled off a 65-54 upset over the Arizona Wildcats, the top-ranked team in that quadrant of the bracket.

Johnson's three came with the game very much in doubt, and the Bison leading 58-54.  His shot gave Bucknell a 7-point lead and they would add four free-throws (Johnson hitting 2 of them) for the final 11-point margin.

Johnson logged 30 minutes of action, finishing with 14 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3PT, 2-2 FT) and added 1 rebound and 2 assists.

"It felt better when it went in," Johnson said with a smile about his clutch shot. "All we worried about was getting stops and moving on to the next play so I knew it wasn't over, but I definitely felt better when it went in."

Bucknell will travel to the University of Nevada to play the Wolfpack in their next NIT game, scheduled for this Sunday at 3:00pm Eastern.
