The legends of tomorrow hitting the hardwood today.

Your basketball education starts here.

Coupeville High School coaches and players will once again run a winter youth basketball program aimed at local students in K-6.

The program, which includes five weeks of instruction, games, fun, and a collectable t-shirt, kicks off in January and is open to Coupeville School District students.

Action hits the hardwood each Saturday between Jan. 11 and Feb. 8.

K-1 students play from 9:30-11 AM at the elementary school, while grades 2-6 go from 9-11 at the high school and middle school gyms.

Cost is $20 per student.

Registration needs to be done online by Jan. 2, with payment done in person at check-in Jan. 11.

If you have any questions, contact CHS boys basketball coach Brad Sherman at bsherman@coupeville.k12.wa.us or CHS girls hoops guru Scott Fox at sfox@coupeville.k12.wa.us.

Hawthorne Wolfe led the Wolf boys in scoring last year as a freshman.

The countdown to hard-court mania begins.

The Coupeville High School basketball teams take the floor for the first day of practice Monday, Nov. 18, with the season-opening games two weeks later.

Both the Wolf girls and boys are currently scheduled to play more than 50% of their regular season games away from Cow Town, with the girls taking a bigger hit.

Playing for new coaches Scott Fox and Megan Smith, who replace the retired David and Amy King, the CHS girls get just seven of 18 games on their home floor.

Meanwhile, the Wolf boys, who will operate under returning coaches Brad Sherman and Chris Smith, get nine of 19 at their place.

Doubleheaders will play a large role, as there are 11 scheduled – five at home, six on the road.

And last, but not least, there’s a weird quirk to the league schedule.

King’s, which has two teams intent on playing for state titles, approached the other five North Sound Conference schools and proposed playing just one league game with each, instead of the normal two.

That would allow the Knights to stuff their schedule with large-school rivals such as Rainier Beach and Tumwater, which, in theory would better prepare King’s for the postseason run.

On the girls side, all five schools accepted, leaving King’s to play just five league games, while everyone else will compete in nine.

Two schools on the boys side – South Whidbey and Cedar Park Christian – declined, however, and will still play home-and-away with the Knights.

So, that leaves Coupeville, Sultan, and Granite Falls with nine league games, King’s with seven, and the South Whidbey and Cedar Park boys as the only teams with the full 10 contests.

The change affects only basketball.

With that said, here’s an up to the moment look at CHS varsity basketball schedules.

Alex Evans is movin’ on up.

After two seasons of coaching girls basketball for Coupeville Middle School, the former Wolf star is making the jump to join the staff of new Coupeville High School girls hoops coach Scott Fox.

Evans joins Megan Smith, already named as the JV coach.

Final approval will come from the school board.

“I’m real excited to add Alex to my coaching staff,” Fox said. “He brings a great passion for the game, along with the ability to connect and teach the athletes.

“Most of the tine you’ll see me sitting between Alex and Megan, using their knowledge about basketball and game strategy,” he added. “I’m really looking forward to all of us coaching together.”

During his playing days, Evans was a three-sport star for CHS, playing football, basketball, and baseball.

As a basketball coach, he worked with SWISH teams, then put in two highly-successful stints guiding middle school programs.

His 7th grade team went 8-2 in 2017-2018, then Evans moved up to run the 8th grade squad in 2018-2019, guiding that Wolf team to a 9-0 mark.

The trio of Fox, Smith, and Evans replace David and Amy King, who retired after a seven-year run in charge of the CHS girls hoops program.

The Wolves meet Seattle Storm standout Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis.

Past connections pay off.

New Coupeville High School girls basketball coach Scott Fox was a firefighter and fire captain in California before retiring to Whidbey.

During that time he worked 20 years with the father of Seattle Storm standout Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, seeing her rise from a junior high star to the national high school player of the year, then a three-time national champion at the University of Connecticut.

Friday night Fox got a chance to take seven CHS seniors to watch her play in person, as the Storm bounced the LA Sparks 84-62 at the Angel of the Winds Arena in Everett.

The Wolves – Tia Wurzrainer, Jered Brown, Hannah Davidson, Gavin Knoblich, Avalon Renninger, Jacobi Pilgrim, and Scout Smith – also got to meet Mosqueda-Lewis.

The 25-year-old small forward has enjoyed a stellar career at every level.

Mosqueda-Lewis was the ESPN National Player of the Year in 2010 and 2011, while adding the State Farm/WBCA High School Player of the Year, Naismith High School Player of the Year, and Gatorade National Player of the Year her senior season.

She captured gold medals four times while playing for different Team USA squads, was a three-time national champion at UConn, and won a 2018 WNBA title with the Storm.

Mosqueda-Lewis also holds the NCAA D-I women’s career record for made three-point shots, rattling home 398 three-balls, while shooting a crisp 44.7% from behind the arc.

The past, present, and future of Coupeville basketball mingles.

The future Brad Sherman’s of Wolf basketball got to pick up a few lessons from the old-school version.

The Coupeville High School boys basketball coach, and legendary former player, joined up with fellow hoops coaches Thursday and Friday to run a successful skills camp for Coupeville athletes in grades K-8.

The two-day affair drew 75+ basketball players, split between girls and boys.

Sherman was joined by fellow coachesĀ Scott Fox, Chris Smith, Megan Smith, Randy King, Greg White, and Randy Bottorff, as well as current CHS players.

Players were divided into four groups (K-1, 2-3, 4-6, and 7-8) and were offered a great learning opportunity in a fun environment.

As Coupeville coaches build local basketball programs to be strong from top to bottom, the skills camp is a welcome flashback to the sort of events held when Sherman, Megan Smith, and White were young players themselves.
