Matt Fitzpatrick understands the rich tradition of Davenport Assumption's boys basketball program.

He lived it as a player and now as a coach.

A two-time Class 3A all-stater, Fitzpatrick powered the Knights to one of their three state championships in 1999.\u00a0

His first season as the program's coach didn't end nearly as well.

Assumption was 5-18 and finished ninth in the Mississippi Athletic Conference. It was the first losing season for the Knights since 2008-09.

It resulted in an offseason of soul-searching and attempting to regain the program's confidence.

\"Last year made me evaluate what wins and what's important,\" Fitzpatrick said. \"You've got to fight and protect that culture. We have that in place because of years and years of hard work. We let it slip a bit for one year.

\"I want to make sure we don't go through another year like that. It isn't the wins and losses but doing things the right way.\"

The sample size is small, but Assumption opened its season last weekend with a 79-63 win against Dubuque Wahlert and a 70-48 setback to defending 4A state champion West Des Moines Valley, a game in which it trailed by only seven points after three quarters.

Nobody outside of Assumption's locker room projects the Knights to claim the league title or even finish in the top three this winter.

Right now, that's not Fitzpatrick's biggest concern.

It was seeing players in the gym together on a random Sunday in the offseason shooting. It was teammates bonding in the weight room.

\"We needed to commit ourselves to an offseason,\" he said. \"We're big on multi-sport athletes, but we had to really commit to the strength program and skill development in the summer.

\"We thought through that our chemistry would build. Those were the two areas we were lacking last year.\"

The Knights started three juniors and two seniors in their opener.

They have capable scorers in senior Trenton Wallace (Iowa baseball recruit) and junior Trent Fitzpatrick, Matt's nephew. They also have a rim protector in 6-foot-11 senior Liam Robbins.

Juniors Landon Dugan and Ray Thrapp have provided solid minutes, and 6-6 sophomore Dylan Peeters is someone Fitzpatrick is very excited about.

\"There is a lot of pride at Assumption, and I think that's why there was such an urgency for this offseason,\" Fitzpatrick said. \"The offseason felt like an eternity, like a season in itself waiting to get to this time and prove to people we're going to be a little better this year.

\"The thing now is, we need that belief we can win, the belief we are a good team, and that comes with playing games, staying the course and overcoming adversity and finding ways to win.\"

No JMike: Bettendorf played its first two games of the season without senior guard JMichael Young (wrist injury). As of early Monday afternoon, coach Curtis Clark isn't certain when Young will be on the court.

It has resulted in an adjustment period for the Bulldogs, who split games last week with Cedar Rapids Washington and Linn-Mar. Sophomore guard D.J. Carton made his varsity debut Saturday and scored 13 points.

\"(JMichael) is a three-year starting point guard, so it is like a coach on the floor, an extension of leadership,\" Clark said. \"You're asking guys to play in roles they haven't played as much. We'll sort it out if we don't have JMike a couple games here and there.\"

IHMVCU SHOOTOUT PAIRINGS: Gary Thrapp, the organizer of this year's International Harvester Mississippi Valley Credit Union girls basketball shootout, released the pairings Monday afternoon for the Jan. 7 event at Augustana College.

Iowa Class 5A top-ranked Davenport North will meet undefeated Rock Island in the marquee game at approximately 8:30 p.m.

Alleman faces Davenport West in the opener at 10 a.m., followed by Pekin against Davenport Central (11:45 a.m.), Sherrard versus Bettendorf (1:30 p.m.) and Geneseo squaring off with Assumption (3:15 p.m.)

The evening session starts with United Township against North Scott at 5 p.m. and Moline clashing with Pleasant Valley at 6:45 p.m.

Lori Duncan has poured her time and energy into coaching softball at Pleasant Valley every summer for nearly the past decade.

Duncan is ready now to devote her summers to her two young boys.

After directing the Spartans to four state tournaments the past six seasons, Duncan has resigned as the school's softball coach.

Duncan said it was strictly a family decision. She has a 6-year-old in kindergarten and a 4-year-old.

\"If I was still single, I would definitely be coaching,\" she said. \"Softball goes beyond the summer months, but when summer does hit, the weeks are pretty long\u00a0\u2014 a lot of hours put on the field. You're leaving family every day.

\"My boys are at a fun age right now, and that crucial time goes by fast.\"

Duncan had considered stepping down the past several years. PV activities director D'Anne Kroemer persuaded Duncan each time in their season-end meeting to return for another year.

Under Duncan's nine-season watch, PV compiled a 254-108 record, won four Mississippi Athletic Conference titles and placed in the top three at the state tournament three times.

PV was 36-9 and finished second at the Class 5A state tournament this past summer. In fact, the Spartans were just one out from the program's first title before Johnston rallied for a 3-2 win.

Formerly Lori Osterberg, she was an all-stater at North Scott and inducted into the Iowa Girls High School Softball Hall of Fame in 1999. The infielder played collegiately at Louisiana-Lafayette and competed in two Women's College World Series.

\"She's been an amazing leader, created a foundation of hard work, determination and success in our program,\" Kroemer said. \"She has that gift to motivate and get out of players what they don't realize they have in them.

\"I've been in this business a long time. When you see people that have that gift, who lead by example, committed to their students, both on and off the playing surface, you do everything you can to help those people stay connected to your programs.\"

Duncan sent Kroemer her resignation letter earlier this fall.

\"I've always respected her desire to be a great mom, great wife and great daughter, but I said let's give it some time and think of all of our options,\" Kroemer said.

PV has won at least 30 games each of the past five seasons. It also has ranked among the state's top five in home runs each of those years.

And the cupboard is far from empty for the next coach.

The Spartans return eight starters, including their top two pitchers in Ellie Spelhaug and Alexia Lara.

\"Before I took over, PV softball had the stereotype of being gritty and working the hardest in the weight room of the PV sports teams,\" Duncan said. \"We've tried to maintain that, keep them gritty and competitive.

\"It is not perfect, but we're in a good place. We have a good tradition and high expectations in our program. When I look at the current girls and the girls to come, we'll have girls able to meet those. I feel good about that.\"

Duncan will remain a board member for the school's feeder program, the PV X-plosion. She plans to assist with player and coach development.

She hasn't closed the door on coaching again.

\"We'll see what happens and where things take us,\" she said. \"I plan on sticking with the game, hopefully working with some hitters. I love to work the swing.

\"We'll stay on top of that and see what doors open and when the timing is right.\"

The Spartans have started the search for Duncan's replacement. Kroemer did not give a specific timetable when she plans to have someone in place.

\"We want to take our time to ensure we find the best fit and best candidate for the position,\" Kroemer said, \"but we also recognize the time for out-of-season training, relationship building and preparation for the season.\"

Muscatine coach Gary Belger:\u00a0\"I want to see a good start to the game, intensity. Defensively, rebounding-wise, I want us attacking the ball. Five people at one time moving on the defense.

It's top two players, Chrislyn Carr and Mariah Mayfield, transferred, so the Falcons return one player, Rachel Stewart, with any measurable varsity experience.","supportsComments":false,"keywords":["girls basketball","muscatine","muskies","susan orvis","rachel stewart","falcon","lot","coaching","staff","davenport west high school"],"internalKeywords":["#mussports"],"customProperties":{},"presentation":"","images":[{"id":"8bd1c775-2409-576e-9eb5-ae372fac5366","description":"Muscatine's Macey Rogers goes up for a layup against Iowa City High's Rose Marie Nkumu (3) on Saturday night at the MHS Fieldhouse.","byline":"TIM DOYLE, MUSCATINE JOURNAL","hireswidth":949,"hiresheight":1600,"hiresurl":"http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/qctimes.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/8/bd/8bd1c775-2409-576e-9eb5-ae372fac5366/5844cc8956bb2.hires.jpg","presentation":"","versions":{"full":{"type":"image/jpeg","width":"949","height":"1600","url":"http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/qctimes.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/8/bd/8bd1c775-2409-576e-9eb5-ae372fac5366/5844cc8955d66.image.jpg?resize=949%2C1600"},"100": {"type":"image/jpeg","width":"100","height":"169","url":"http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/qctimes.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/8/bd/8bd1c775-2409-576e-9eb5-ae372fac5366/5844cc8955d66.image.jpg?resize=100%2C169"},"300": {"type":"image/jpeg","width":"300","height":"506","url":"http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/qctimes.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/8/bd/8bd1c775-2409-576e-9eb5-ae372fac5366/5844cc8955d66.image.jpg?resize=300%2C506"},"1024":{"type":"image/jpeg","width":"1024","height":"1726","url":"http://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/qctimes.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/8/bd/8bd1c775-2409-576e-9eb5-ae372fac5366/5844cc8955d66.image.jpg"}}}],"revision":1,"commentID":"83d09e11-8428-5e70-8f5e-9ece6a3214bb","body":"

Need to know: The Muskies head to the road for the first time this season Tuesday night at West ready to get back into the true grind of the season after playing five times in the first 12 days of the season, four of which came against Mississippi Valley Conference foes. Muscatine put together a strong opening half against Class 5A No. 4 Iowa City High on Saturday, and they'll look to put a full game together against the Falcons. West, under first-year coach Frank Dexter, will have a much different look than last season. It's top two players, Chrislyn Carr and Mariah Mayfield, transferred, so the Falcons return one player, Rachel Stewart, with any measurable varsity experience.

Muscatine coach Susan Orvis: \"It just breaks up the routine a little bit. We've got to get into our road routine and our timing with that. Mentally prepare a little different. ... I was really pleased with our first half of that game on Saturday. The start of the second half got a way from us. We talked a lot today about some consistency and staying together, some better runs and a complete 32 minutes. ... They do have some new personal. We respect their coaching staff, there's a lot of experience there. We expect a little slower tempo and a more physical game.\"
