CHICKASHA – Early in the season, the outlook for the Drover men’s basketball team is positive, especially in the eyes of junior Graham Faulkner.

“It’s been going well. We’ve been working hard ever since we’ve gotten here at school,” Faulkner said. “Also, just when you’ve got good guys with talent that work that hard, a lot of good things will happen.”

The Drover coaches have brought in some talent, some height and a lot of athleticism to finish off the team this season. A great performance against NCAA Division II No. 11 Central Oklahoma sold the home crowd on the season so far.

“There’s a lot of things I think we can improve on as long as we continue to work,” Faulkner said. “But the sky’s the limit for us really, as far as our potential goes. I think the only team that can really stop us is ourselves.”

Faulkner is averaging 7.7 points a game and is second on the team with assists, but he gives the credit to his teammates

“When you have a team like we have that anybody can score, that really takes a lot of focus off just one player, one shooter or one guy to drive,” he said. “So it’s opened up a lot of things for guards, and myself in particular.”
