Hi All,

Taylor is injured so he took the weekend off and spent some time relaxing at home and on the beach! He just had a slew of guests over there between his two brothers, mom and friend! (We're hoping for pictures and an update soon!)

We're also working on finalzing plans for his Summer Slam this August! We'll let you know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE what's going on with that!

vs. Bruesa GBC

In one of the biggest games of the season, Alicante Costa Blanca beat the first place team, Bruesa GBC 90 - 79 in a very hard fought game last week. As a result of that game Bruesa GBC dropped to third and Alicante moved to second place!

Taylor started and, despite getting in early foul trouble and playing less than half of the game (17 mins) he scored 7 points and was the leading rebounder with 6.

Way to go Taylor and Alicante!

vs. Tenerife Rural

Taylor had another great game!  Taylor started and played a tough 30 minutes against a very big (6'11") strong and dirty player,  Alfonso Albert, from Tenerife Rural.  Tenerife is located in the Canary Islands off of the west coast of Africa.  

Alicante won 89-70.  Taylor played solid defense and had 7 points and 5 offensive rebounds.

Next Wednesday the team plays Bruesa GBF the number one team at this time- - BIG GAME!

Congratulations Taylor and good luck next week! :)

Taylor Writes...

Hi Everyone!

Things are going well at practice! We have a game on friday and Ethan and my mom arrived safe and sound for their visit. My teammates, Keith and Josh are hurt however, so we will be playing our game without two very talented teammates. Other than that, I think everything should go well and hope we can get the victory!

Congratulations to the UVM men's basketball team and their successful season. I was hoping they would make it to the championship game and head to the tournament.

I am playing now with teammate Pat Carroll and he played with a couple of players on the Vermont Frost Heaves so sometimes we get a chance to talk about how they are doing. It is great now that we have a lot of opportunities for athletes in every sport and are getting more and more competetive in the State of Vermont.

Best wishes to everyone!!

A Break from our Regularly Scheduled Broadcast

We know you love hearing about Taylor and all of his basketball and non-basketball related stories but today we thought it would be fun to shed a little light on someone who is very important to Taylor: his younger brother Drew.

Much like his older brother (and oldest brother and dad...) Drew Coppenrath loves the game of basketball. He has spent the last four years playing basketball for the University of Southern Maine and is well-known as one of the best players in the Little East Conference. As an annual top-rebounder and double scorer he was a leader on and off the court. Drew just finished his collegiate basketball career and we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate him on his many accomplishments.

Here's to YOU Drew, you've made everyone proud!

More to come!
