Stucky Continues to Believe

In today’s paper is an article I wrote about an Air Force basketball player you might not know very well – Scott Stucky.

You might not know him well because the 6-foot-2 guard has yet to play in a game for the Falcons. Back-to-back ACL tears stole his freshman and sophomore seasons.

But Stucky hasn’t quit. And he holds out hope he’ll be able to make a contribution in his last two seasons. It was difficult, he said, not being able to play. Air Force’s troubles on the court (1-31 in Mountain West Conference regular season play in the two seasons) made it worse.

“I knew about the glory days, and now things have gone south,” Stucky said. “I want to be part of the team that turns things back around and gets Air Force basketball back on its feet. Hopefully we’ll get that done in the next two years.”

Here’s my article on Stucky.
