Seniors reflect on their time on the basketball court as members of the Pioneers
By Abe Field /// Senior Staff Writer
The Pioneers will end their seasons this weekend, closing out the season against Pacific. These will be the last games of a strong group of seniors, putting the finishing touches on their time within the walls of the Pamplin basketball court. In reflection, two of the seniors took time to reflect on their fondest memories from Pioneer Basketball, what they hope to leave behind, their post-grad plans, the NBA players they would most like to play against and their yearbook quotes.

My favorite memory would be beating Whitman in the playoffs last year in front of a packed Whitman crowd. It was really satisfying to pull that win off and get to the Northwest Conference Championship (for the first time in my career) over them.
What I really want to leave behind for my teammates is a legacy of giving out dimes on a decidedly regular basis on the court.
Well, I have realistic goal. I’m planning to join the Illuminati and make millions!
I would really want to play against White Iverson, because I want to learn to sauce like him.

Jason Luhnow ’16
My fondest memory from Pioneer Basketball so far was that big playoff win last year at Whitman. We were so psyched to get to the championship for the first time in many years!
I do not really hope to leave anything behind, but I hope that I have had some positive influence on someone in some way for the better in my time at LC and my time within the Pioneer Basketball community.
I do not really have any specific post-grad plans yet.
It would be hard not to want to play with Steph Curry right now. What he is doing on the court is unbelievable and it’s something that the NBA has never really seen.
