1988-89 COVINGTON BUCCANEERS...
1988-89 Covington Buccaneers: Front Row (left to right): Assistant Coach Roger Craft, Tarlton Thomas, Dan Girouard, Alan Davis, Chris Dilley, Coach Steve Fisher. Back Row (standing left to right): Doug Dilley, Jason Frock, Reggie Smith, Rich Idle.

The 1988-89 Buccs had a rough season going 8-13 on the year. That's what happens when a team looses the school's second all-time leading scorer and only returning two letterman.

The Buccs were at one point in the season 5-2 and looking like a team that would exceed all expectations. However, from January until the end of the season the Buccs could only manage 3 wins in 13 games. The disappointment of the '88-'89 season can be attributed to a lack of offense. The Buccs only managed to average 53 points per game while surrendering 62 points a game to their opponents. Their field goal percentage was down at 42 percent and they only shot 60 percent from the free throw line. These numbers translate into a 8-13 record, their first loosing season since the 5-14 team in '68-'69.

Scoring Leaders for the Buccs:
Rich Idle – 279 pts. 13.3 avg.
Doug Dilley – 229 pts. – 10.9 avg.
Reggie Smith – 190 pts. – 9.5 avg.

Rebounding Leaders for the Buccs:
Doug Dilley – 168
Rich Idle – 163
Chris Dilley – 80
