CHIPOLA HOSTS GULF COAST SATURDAY

      MARIANNA—Chipola College hosts Gulf Coast in a pair of home basketball games, Saturday, Feb. 14. The women play at 5:30, followed by the men at 7:30 p.m.

                The Indians could clinch the Panhandle Conference Championship with a win over Gulf Coast, but Chipola coach Chris Jans is not taking anything for granted. “We’ve got to continue doing what we’ve been doing. Gulf Coast is bigger and stronger than us. The post game is what they do best. We’ve got to manipulate the game and make their guards handle the game. Rebounding is also a key, so we’ll be focusing on that part of the game,” Jans said.

                Chipola is ranked first in the state and recently moved to number seven in the national poll. But there is little rest for the state’s top-ranked team. “We’ve got four games in eight days,” said Jans.  “We’ve got to play everyone for the third time. It’s hard to beat a team three times in one year. That’s one of the things that makes this league so tough. This is one of the only conferences where you have to play everyone three times.”

                The Indians improved to 23-3 on the season and 7-1 in conference play with a 78-45 homecoming win over Tallahassee.  Chipola was led in scoring by Je'kel Foster with 22 points. Mario Jointer had 15 points and 10 rebounds. Leon Woodstock added 12. Vas'shun Newborne also had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.  Shawn Malloy pulled in nine rebounds.

                The rest of the men’s league is turning into a battle for second. PJC beat OW on Wednesday which put several teams at 4-5. This could force a playoff for the second place spot in the league. The top two men’s teams earn a berth to the state tournament, March 3-6 at Chipola.

                The Lady Indians defeated Tallahassee 77-53.  Leading scorers for the Lady Indians were Ashely Perry with 15, Alicia McDonald with 14, Kristina Andjelkovic with 13 and Tojalynn Atmore with 10.  The win improved the Lady Indians' overall record to 22-4, and 8-3 in the panhandle conference.

                Both teams travel to Pensacola, Feb. 16, before returning home to host OWCC in the final home games of the season, Wednesday, Feb. 18.

                Both Chipola squads look to be strong contenders to make the state JUCO tournament set for March 3-6 at Chipola. The top two men's teams and the top three women's teams from the Panhandle Conference will play in the tourney.

CHIPOLA HOOPSTERS, COACH NAMED ALL-CONFERENCE

                MARIANNA—It has been a season of firsts for the Chipola College men’s basketball team. 

                In the first season since being renamed Chipola College, first-year men’s coach Chris Jans has been named Panhandle Coach of the Year. And for the first time since 1998, the Indians are once again champions of the Panhandle Conference.

                First on the list of reasons for Chipola’s success is Je’kel Foster who was named Panhandle Conference Player of the Year.  Foster is first in the state in field goal percentage, shooting an unbelievable 85 percent from the line. He is averaging 17.3 points per game, which ranks him at number 13 on the state scoring list.  Foster also is tenth in the state in assists, averaging 5.5 per game. He is eighth in steals with 67, for a 2.5 per game average.  

                Head coach Chris Jans said, “This is a great honor for Je’kel. He came in second for player of the year in Texas last season. He’s not the leading scorer in the state, but he does everything very well.” Jans said Foster was the unanimous choice for Player of the Year. The All Conference team was selected by the five Panhandle coaches, each of whom picked 12 players from teams other than their own.

                In all, six Chipola players earned All-Panhandle Conference honors. Mario Jointer, Vashun Newborne, Leon Woodstock and Foster were named to the All Conference First Team. Deke Thompson and Shawn Malloy earned Honorable Mention All-Conference honors.  Coach Jans said, “We have a bunch of great players. They are all very deserving. It’s a tribute to the great regular season that they’ve had. It’s nice to know that our kids are recognized by other coaches for their ability to play this game.”  

                Jans said having so many All Conference players says a lot about the balance of the squad. “To have four guys named first team all conference says that we’re not a one or two man team. And Deke Thompson and Shawn Malloy were close to making first team. It was really a case of our own players pushing out our players to make the list,” Jans said.

                In his first regular season at the helm of the Chipola program, head coach Chris Jans led his Indians to an 11-1 league record and 27-3 overall, pushing his career record to 154-43. Jans came to Chipola from Howard College in Big Spring, TX, where he led Howard to an overall record of 29-4 in 2003.

                Jans' first head coaching position was at Kirkwood CC (Cedar Rapids, IA) where he captured the 1998 NJCAA National Championship was named NJCAA Coach of the Year.

                Chipola will play the runner-up of the Mid-Florida Conference, Wednesday, March 3, at 6 p.m., in the first round of the state tournament to be held at Chipola. Central Florida and Florida Community College at Jacksonville will play Tuesday, Feb. 24, for the chance to face Chipola in the tournament.        

                With nearly two weeks off before the tournament, Jans said, “We’re trying to figure out the best balance between rest and practice. Having 11 days off is not the best thing, but hoping to use the time to heal from some injuries.” Jans said Mario Jointer and Shawn Malloy are a little banged up. Brent Crews fractured his wrist in the final regular season game and will play the tournament in a soft cast.

                The Lady Indians finished third in the league with a 22-8 mark and an 8-7 overall record.  The team is ranked third in the Florida state poll and number 23 in the national poll.
