NEW WILMINGTON, PA – Head coach Kevin Siroki and the Westminster Titans men’s basketball team are gearing up for what the hope will be a championship run in the PAC Tournament! The Titans were able to achieve one of their many goals this season as they locked up the #1 seed for the tournament as they posted an 8-1 record on the season. Westminster’s first test in the tournament will be against the #8 ranked Franciscan at home on Tuesday night!
On the season, Daniel Ritter and Reese Leone have been consistent performers for Coach Siroki. Ritter, a senior guard from South Range High School, is averaging 14.7 points per game and 4.4 rebounds per game. He is looked upon for that important senior leadership throughout the long season but also to teach the younger guys what it means to be a member of the Titans basketball program and to teach the “Titan way” of doing things. Freshman guard, Reese Leone, a recent graduate of West Branch High School, is one of those young rising stars for the Titans that looks up to Dan Ritter as a mentor to learn how the college game is played. Reese is currently having a great season as he is averaging 11.3 points per game, 2.3 rebounds per game, and 4.8 assists per game. As Leone continues to blossom into the point guard role and build his confidence, the Titans will only continue to get better as time goes on!
YSN’s own, Steve Leslie, was able to sit down with Coach Siroki, Dan Ritter, and Reese Leone, via video chat this week to discuss the upcoming playoff match up with Franciscan, what it means to be a Titan, what Coach’s impact has been on Ritter and Leone, and what we can expect from the Titans come gameday tonight!
All that and so much more in this very special, exclusive, interview with Westminster Titans men’s basketball head coach, Kevin Siroki, and star players, Dan Ritter and Reese Leone!
