One on One with Coach Paul Woolpert of the Yakima Sun Kings - Jan 11, 2006

Greg's Articles

The Yakima Sun Kings have the #1 spot in the Western Conference, just beat the 2004-05 Championship

Team 122 - 108 and are playing great basketball.  I had the chance to sit down with Coach

Paul Woolpert to discuss the teams success, challenges and the upcoming All Star Game.


Q:  Coach of the Month in December, #1 in your Conference and winning the first quarter

point on Sunday against Rockford you are now the All Star Coach, what is the secret to your

success so far this season?


A:  We are playing like we should, unselfishly.  Our guys are giving up good shots to get

better shots, and with a lot of special talent in our line up like Rosell Ellis (6'7''-F-75, agency: SportsTalent, college: Mc Neese St.), Anthony

Goldwire and Ronny Turiaf (6'10''-C/F-83, college: Gonzaga) we are playing outstanding basketball.


Q:  How about the run for the CBA Championship this year and beating out Sioux Falls to get



A:  THere are some tough teams out there on any given night.  Coach Joerger and I are good

friends, but we are both very competitive.  We will continue to play as we have in the past

few games and utilize our deep roster with lots of talent.  Also when you have players like

Mark Strickland (6'10''-F/C-70, agency: Octagon, college: Temple) who used to play on another team, in this case Rockford, they play that much

harder and deliver a winning performance.


Q:  Will you be making any changes to your roster?


A:  I do not forsee any changes at this time, other than the players we have and will loose

to NBA call ups.  But those are good for the players, reflects the development of our

organization and the CBA.  It is always tough to loose good players during the season, but I

knew it was going to happen.


Q:  Are you ready for the All Star Game?


A:  I am very happy for the opportunity to be the Coach for the Western Conference All Stars

and to take my Assistant Coaches, Tony Fritz and Don Sellers with me.  The break always

hurts momentum and it can be difficult to get back into regular play.  But I believe we can

get through it, work hard and keep up our success.


Q:  You have worked with NBA teams and had success in the CBA, what is next for you as a



A:  I am a CBA guy.  I enjoy Yakima, our community supports us and our fans are great!  I do

not see myself going anywhere anytime soon.  Any next step would be to the NBA as per our

relationship between the two leagues.  I am working on another CBA Championship right now.

BALTIMORE 107, MIDDLE TENNESSEE 78: (Arnold, Md.) - With both teams entering tonight with only one victory each on the season, and knowing that a defeat would all but eliminate them from postseason contention, Baltimore and Middle Tennessee came out in the first quarter in a back-and-forth battle with 10 ties and lead changes. But things slowly began drifting towards the direction of the hosts, as they went on a 21-10 run late in the second quarter to go into the intermission with a slim...   [read more]

ILLINOIS 100, INDIANAPOLIS 88: (Danville, Ill.) - Two weeks ago, Indianapolis easily dismantled Illinois at home, and were looking to sweep the season series tonight across the state border in Danville. But tonight was not an evening for road teams in the CBA, as Illinois jumped out the gates with a 27-10 run and never looked back. They extended the lead to 19 points in the second quarter, and finished the third quarter with a 22-point lead at 76-53, ultimately cruising to their second co...   [read more]
