Riverside gym was much stronger in the basketball season he has had in the past because the fans are for admission to a Basketball Game.
Viewers can leave the gym with everything from money to prices a hair dryer in a bucket of fried chicken with a stomach ache a donut eating contest, a dress shirt George Washington.
It's all part of the new image of Riverside, includes basketball as one of their competitions.
Fans of the ball around the small supply of private schools to obtain a sample major promotions in time, courtesy of head coach Greg Domecq.
"I thought it was necessary to Riverside," said Domenech, who was assistant basketball-crazy Newman for three years. "Support was there but had to be cultivated. They committed themselves to basketball and we'll build on that. "
"I expected a good reaction, because people here are behind the boys and it shows in football."
The fans are starting to appear in basketball too. Riverside is averaging 275 in attendance per game at home, and more small crowd was even higher 200. In the past, attendance was over 200 only twice – both times in the state playoffs.
"Not only are very happy, but the whole league," said the director Barry Heltzer Riverside. "Officials want to come here and call the games.'s Support fans has been the best in history. Fans have been both coach Domecq. They're behind him 100 percent. "
Those who leave the gym a little more rich and not worry about their next meal are particularly grateful.

- Donate Eating Contest – cash prize of $ 25 to eat six fastest donuts
- Diving for the mass – 200 notes of $ 1 is distributed in the soil. A lucky fan has 30 seconds to collect as much as possible.
- Rebel Big Night Dinner – Dinner for two in New Orleans and several local restaurants.
- George Washington Costume Contest – George Best Costume wins savings bond.
These are some of the nights special price. Riverside also performs regularly for all the other games, including pizza, fried chicken, automotive service, dinners for two, tickets college basketball, soft drinks by the case record albums, and hairdryer.
Of course, somewhere behind gifts, the EPP and the flag is a Basketball Team for girls. "The promotions help, but children who come to see," said Domenech. If you can win a hair dryer side, but too nice. I think the program has made great strides in this first year. "
Domecq expects much in and off the field. Girls during the games, players men's basketball are required to comply only if the screen. You should keep a navy blue trousers dress shoes, gray shirts, and links. "
Initially, we thought it was crazy, "said Roussel Herbie player." Bother us at first, but now we believe that gives us some sort. "
"We have completed Everyplace we will," said teammate Paul Kreutzfeldt.
The rebels have not set the world on fire with a record of 9-7, but Domecq was pleased with the effort.
"Except for a game of this year, our brand has been playing hard and never give up," he said. "We have the best or the greatest players, but they play with heart. The children turned and can be expected. "
The big problem with basketball in Riverside in the past has been football. Riverside won seven state titles since LISA school opened in 1972.
In a school with fewer than 200 students which means a lot of basketball players still playing football in mid-December.
"Eight of the eleven played football palyers" Domecq said. "Four of our five starters played in the championship game of the state of Monroe. Went up at 3:30 am on Saturday and were in the gym at 2 this afternoon for practice. "
"We had our first practice until 01 December and played our first game on 3 December. I used to practice on 8 September. "
Domecq plans to address the problem of lost time work on fundamentals and a summer basketball camp for players to revive interest in pre-secondary school.
"The case has captured the loss can not be the best in the world but we are moving in the right direction, "Heltzer said." Not overnight. There is no doubt in my mind that we to be a power in basketball a couple of years. "
Friday will be allowed a day in the reserve. The rebels have not played a home game since Dec. 13 and had only four home games. The fans are hungry for more. Agrees to give farewell night, but Tuesday is "Pack-the gym "night, fans are encouraged to see, and sell to the gym for the first time in school history. The class with the highest percentage of participation will win a prize $ 100 cash.
