Multnomah Lions Continue Tough, But Rewarding November

By Greg Crawford, Basketball Insider @wchoops

In some ways 11 year Multnomah Lions' head coach Curt Bickley will be glad November is over and in some ways he will not.

"When we set up our schedule, we knew it would be really tough," said Bickley. "But out of some losses, we also have gained confidence and I have never been afraid to schedule quality opponents, because playing against teams that might be better on paper, makes you a better basketball team.

The road of roughness continues on Tuesday night, when the Lions meet Oregon Tech and its legendary coach Danny Miles, who very soon will be in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

"We enjoy our time going to Klamath Falls," says Bickley. "We always know OIT is strong and we also know the fans are wild about their team, which presents challenges for everyone who plays OIT at home. But once again, we will gain confidence and come out of the game a better team for sure.

After the Tuesday night game, the Lions will return to close out November with a battle against crosstown Warner Pacific on the Knight's home floor, on Tuesday November 26th.

Then after a few days off, Multnomah will start December by  traveling to Michigan for a three game trip, returning for their next home game on December 12th against North Adelaide.
