Knights basketball teams plan for slam dunk season

The City College women’s and men’s basketball teams begin their season in November.

The Lady Knights are starting their season with a new head coach,  Brandon Lupian, who was previously the assistant coach in 2009- 10 and is also the current head coach of the men’s tennis team. He has been coaching at City College since 2007.

Mitch Charlens, head coach of the men’s basketball team, is entering his eighth season at the helm.

Charlens has won two conference titles during his eight years and is looking to rebound off last year, where the Knights were left out of the state playoffs after finishing second in the Pacific  Coast Athletic Conference.

The Knights finished 11-5 in the PCAC with an overall record of 17-10 last season.

The Knights will travel to Mission Viejo Nov. 7, where they will play the Saddleback Gauchos ­— where Charlens played.

This will be an early test for the Knights, since the Gauchos are a preseason top-ten ranked team in the state.

The Lady Knights open their season at the Mesa Tournament which starts Nov. 11.
