It’s season number seven for me as head coach of the boys varsity basketball team at East Lansing High School.

Thanks for visiting. Going to change direction a bit with the blog.


In the past I have posted quotes from players and coaches. From this day on, I will post items about our team keeping you updated on our progress.

The Trojans currently are 1-0 in conference play,  3-0 overall on the season. We’ve won on the road at Dewitt and Haslett.  Our lone home game was a big conference win over Jackson High last Friday night.

Today we prep for a very tough road game tomorrow night at Lansing Everett; alma mater of the greatest point guard in the history of basketball, Magic Johnson.

Yesterday the team watched film of our game against Haslett, a 71-31 victory. We also took a look at Everett to learn a little bit about their team. Everett is well-coached, quick and fast. It’s going to be a very tough game.

Lots to do cover today at practice. We go from 3:00 to 4:45.

Our Freshmen and Junior Varsity teams play at home tonight; freshmen starts at 5:30, followed by JV at 7:00

Coach Finamore



“We hang out with these guys more than anyone off the court, everywhere. Go to dinner, hang out, so we’re always doing a little routine all the time. It’s all part of being a brotherhood, man, being around each other for so long. I look forward to the start of games. That’s one thing I really missed when I was out, was just the routines and just interact with your teammates and getting ready before the games. It means a lot to me. I don’t know about everybody else, but it means a lot to me.”
