The 2013-14 season got off to a bit of rocky start for the Pinecrest boys basketball team, as the Paladins dropped each of their first six games—losing by more than 10 points four times in that span. However, given the circumstances, this rough patch didn’t warrant much concern. Pinecrest had just graduated four seniors, lost two starters to short-term injuries and faced a grueling schedule, including contests against Dawson County (7-1), Riverside Military Academy (5-2), Fellowship Christian (6-3) and Blessed Trinity (8-3).
