You are a first year college basketball head coach. You have no gym. You have no returning players. Not a single winning season in school history.
That’s not a recipe for winning a single game, let alone qualifying for a berth in the Junior College National Championship Tournament. Yet, this is exactly what Preston Beverly and the Lincoln College of New England team did this season.
LCNE is a two-year Junior College (NJCAA Division III) that has essentially built a basketball program overnight. In his first year at the helm, Coach Beverly took on the task of recruiting a group of overlooked players to play at a tiny school in rural Connecticut with none of the usual selling points coaches employ in their arsenal - a state of the art facility, athletic scholarships, a tradition of winning.
All he had was his reputation as a former D1 player at VMI and a vision of creating a winning system on the blank canvas of this program. From scheduling practice time at a local Boys and Girls Club to facing the challenge of gelling 14 disparate young men into a cohesive unit in just a few short months, Coach Beverly certainly had his hands full in his first season.
“Hard Work and Family: A JuCo Story”, an all-access documentary short, immerses you into the hearts and minds of an unorthodox college basketball team.
