Jefferson City aims for fresh basketball start

Jefferson City is ready to turn the page. Coming off a 7-18 season plagued by injuries and player dismissals, a fresh start is just what the Jays' basketball team needs.

"When you have a season like we had last year, it had its adversity, but it also created a lot of opportunities for people," Jefferson City coach Blair Thompson said. "We survived a year like that and then come into the next year. I think there are enough variables to motivate us to put a good season together."

The next chapter starts with a summer full of opportunities to improve. The Jays just completed a week-long summer camp Friday and played in a Belleville (Ill.)-affiliated shootout Saturday.
