Just nearly two months after the West Seneca West football team finished their season with a perfect record, the boys basketball team is continuing that momentum.

The Indians are off to a 14-0 start on the season under first year head coach Desmond Randall.

They're beating their opponents by an average of 30 points a game. Their smallest margin of victory was 11 points while their largest margin of victory was 48.

This year's team includes returners and new faces. Coach Randall says the best part about this team is that you never know who will have the hot hand and contribute. Five different players have scored in the double digits in points while a few others have chipped in with key rebounds, points, and steals.

The West Seneca West boys basketball program hasn't had the most success over the last few years. In fact in the last three seasons alone, the Indians only won a combined 13 games. After having a few down years, Coach Randall says the one thing they're preaching to their kids is "hungry and humble".

"They've lost big to a lot of teams in the league and even non-league teams in the last few years and we've had an opportunity to play those teams. So just going out every night and keeping that hunger in them and letting them no that 14-0 means nothing," he said. "You've still got to win championships to accomplish your ultimate goal and just having a light at the end of the tunnel of our ultimate goal has been the biggest driving force to our hunger."

The Indians will look for their 15th win of the season as they play West Seneca East on Tuesday, January 23rd.
