Boys Junior Varsity Basketball

Boys Junior Varsity Basketball

The JV basketball team has been extremely successful over the past few seasons and has provided the varsity team with several strong players. Coaches Oris Bryant and Mike Kalin strive to perfect the fundamentals in each player and ensure that each practice is enjoyable and effective. The team plays 16 season games against ISL and non-ISL teams.

Oris Bryant

Head Coach At nobles since 2011

Coaching Philosophy: JV basketball strives to prepare experienced and beginning players alike to compete at the next level, while emphasizing skill-development and a team-first mentality. For each player, we want to create an environment that challenges appropriately and allows for growth as a basketball player. In this, all players are introduced to the overall program philosophy of “ubuntu”—“I am because we are, and I cannot be all I can be unless you are all you can be.”

Coaching Tenure: I have coached the junior varsity team for the last 9 years here at Nobles.

Playing/Prior Coaching Experience: Varsity basketball head coach at the Winsor School; Assistant varsity basketball coach at the Belmont Hill School; Assistant then head varsity basketball coach at the Holderness School. Four-year member of the men’s varsity basketball team at Brown University. Played at Boston Latin Academy where I was recognized as a Fox Sports/Boston Celtics all-scholastic player.

Mike Kalin

Assistant Coach At nobles since

Coach Kalin leads our JV team with tremendous attention to detail in preparing players to develop the skills and attitudes to give them a chance to play at the varsity level. Coach Kalin also serves as a class dean and teaches courses in both the English and Social Studies departments.
