After a brutal start to their season a year ago, West Albany showed great resiliency and finished their last 15 games of the season with an 11-4 record, tying for third in the Mid-Willamette Conference and nearly making the playoffs...  Under Coach Derek Duman, the Bulldogs look to push in transition and work inside-out...  Defensively, West will vary looks and apply pressure with an athletic and quick stable of guards...  On his coaching philosophy, Coach Duman said, "To develop young men through the game of basketball. The lessons we hope our players learn stay with them far after their playing careers end."  West Albany has multiple offensive weapons that can score in a variety of ways and with 4 of 5 starters returning from last season Bulldog fans are optimistic about this season's prospects... "We believe we are a playoff team with a chance to make it to the state tournament," said Coach Duman...
