Linsly coach James Wallace was none too pleased with how his boys' basketball team's season ended a year ago.
His players weren't too thrilled about it, either.
''We fell short and didn't make the (OVAC) tournament,'' Wallace said. ''That's obviously one of our standards of excellence we strive for. We fell short and we weren't happy with those results.

PICTURED IS the 2013-14 Linsly basketball team. Front row, from left, are Charles Tan, Michael Reed, Sam Doe, Isaiah Harvin, Matt Hurley, Cole Griffin, Logan Goodnight, Maverick Kelley, Nic Aprea, Erick Taylor, Corey Cunningham and Allen Lin. Back row, from left, are Jae Wook Ahn, Mackenzie Hammond, Christian Braughler, Tyson West, Reno Colaianni, Austin Whipkey, Anthony Wallace, Arien Seymour, Jameson Murray, Colton Coss, Jake Steed, Zak Kriechbaum and Josh Sands.
Some adjustments will be toward replacing point guard Toddy Goodwin-Rowe, who transferred to Wheeling Park for his junior year.
One man the fourth-year coach is happy to have back is 6-foot-4 senior Anthony Wallace.
As a junior, Wallace led the Cadets with 22 points, six rebounds and three assists per game. The returning captain has already passed the 1,000-point milestone for his career.
Sharp-shooting junior Colton Coss is also back for the Cadets after connecting on 29 3-pointers last season, as is senior Arien Seymour.
''We have a room full of guys who are excited to play basketball here,'' Wallace said. ''They're very committed to the program and are excited for a chance to be an excellent, excellent team.''
Other seniors include Reno Colaianni, Jameson Murray and Austin Whipkey, all of whom recently experienced success with the football team.
