Some thoughts by coach Ned Mircetic on the Ventura College men's basketball team's performance in its scrimmage Tuesday against Westmont:
"Dee Pinkard had a kind of coming-out party."
"Prince (Abidoye) played well. He was able to get to the rim and draw a lot of fouls."
"Will Faiivae was active, but he was foul prone."
"Danny Benson is a breath away from being a tremendous player for us."
The sophomores mostly stood out. But there was one freshman who was highlighted, Channel Islands High product Jordan Harris.
"Jordan Harris showed energy on the board and patience in the high post."
Mircetic was upset that point guard Mike Diacos, a Camarillo High graduate who transfered from Nebraska, didn't see more playing time.
"Diacos did fine. I didn't play him enough. I was trying different combination and he got squeezed out of the combinations. That was more on me looking at different combinations."
