2C Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter The Feather River College men's basketball team opens Golden Valley Conference play Wednesday in Eureka as it takes on College of the Redwoods. The game can be watched by accessing the College of the Redwoods men's basketball website and activating the link, which will be available a half-hour prior to the 7:30 p.m. tip-off. The Golden Eagles will play their first home game at Feather River College against Shasta College on Jan. 11 at 7:30 p.m: with the women's game beginning at 5:30 p.m. The last time the men's team played at home was in front of a Feather River College capacity crowd that broke the school's attendance record. The team lost to Lassen College by six points, battling for the 2013 GVC championship. A win would have given the Golden Eagles a back-to-back title, a first in the school's history. Since taking over the helm as head coach in 2000, head coach Randy Rick led the men's program to five conference championships and produced more Division I players than any school in the history of the Golden Valley Conference, except for Butte College, led by the former Hall of Fame coach John Abell. In Rick's 14 years at the helm the Golden Eagles have competed for the conference championship every season. The team's worst finish under Rick was third place one time: not bad for a program that had records of 2-29 and 3-25 and was dead last in attendance prior to Rick's hiring. This year's FRC program has once again played arguably the most competitive preseason schedule in the state, having played three of the top-ranked teams in the state. "Every year we compete in five of the best tournaments in the state, which serves as a great platform to develop and come together as a team," commented Rick. "It obviously doesn't add up for a lot of wins the last few years but it sure prepares us for conference play." Rick continued, "I've See Eagles, page 5C Larry Lawson, left, and Hank Taylor, center, accept a case of ammunition from Chandler Peay, the president of the Quincy Friends of the NRA, on Dec. 22, 2013.
