Foster eager to prove Aggies not finished
So far the 2013-14 season has been a forgettable one for the Cameron men's basketball team. A year after finishing 18-9 and making the school's first trip to the NCAA Division II Tournament, the Aggies are just 9-11 and are mired in a six-game losing streak.
Still, all is not lost for the Aggies. They're tied for fifth place in the Lone Star Conference with five games to go. They still have a realistic chance of finishing third. If not for three losses by three points or less during this losing streak, they would be tied for third.
For the Aggies to get back in contention and chase the LSC tournament title and the league's automatic birth, their leader and reigning LSC player of the year Craig Foster will be the key and it's a challenge he's up for.
"It's just mental toughness, we just have to finish the game off. We just can't do that right now," Foster said. "All it will take is finishing one game and we'll break through. We haven't reached our peak yet. Once we get to the conference tournament, we're going to show people we can still win it."
For Foster, another trip to the NCAA Tournament would be a perfect way to end his four-year run at Cameron. It would be a fitting end to what he's been trying to do at CU: change its reputation for local high school players.
