Joey Fuca: The coach on the floor - Feb 4, 2013

It was one of those games that will be talked about for a while. Dirk Dippold (190-G-92) who hit the game winner at the buzzer will probably never forget it, while for Joey Fuca (182-G-89, college: Master's) the memory might be painful. The 24-year-old point guard did everything in his power to help the Baskets Vilsbiburg down RLSO leader FC Baunach, but ended up on the losing end of a thrilling nail-biter. The game was tied at 80 with six seconds left to play, when Fuca was fouled on his way to the rim. Vilsbiburg's leading scorer showed no nerves and converted his two free-throws, putting his team up by two. "Baunach called timeout to advance the ball to midcourt allowing them for a desperate heave of a shot that went in", Fuca said, who finished the game with 25 points, hitting 5-of-7 attempts from long distance, while adding four rebounds and three assists. "I will give credit to a scrappy Baunach team who is in first place for a reason, but we definitely let a great opportunity slip thru our hands. Now we have to shift our focus to Deisenhofen who sits in second place behind Baunach", he added.

Regardless of the loss, the game was proof once again that Fuca is the engine of the Vilsbiburg team that is fifth in the standings of the 1. Regionalliga South-East (10-7) following the Baunach defeat. He is pacing the league's best offensive team with just under 22 points a contest, ranks third in the league in triples made (41 in 16 games played), pulls down a solid 4.3 rebounds per outing and dishes out 2.2 assists a game. To call him a RLSO standout is redundant. In his first year in Germany, the Danville, California, native embraced his role as a leader of his team with zeal and without hesitation. Having been dubbed "the clubs undisputed leader" while running the point for the Master's College Mustangs might have something to do with it: "As the point guard I am responsible for being the leader of our team", Fuca told Eurobasket.com, "every team is different, but I feel its my job to motivate my teammates vocally and with my play. Whether its practice or a game its vital to get the most out of every player by creating a competitive atmosphere."

A coach couldn't have said it any better. Or to be more precise, Joey Fuca IS a coach. On and off the court. "Back in Northern California I have my own training business and serve as a coach for an AAU team", he said. Teaching the game of basketball requires to master its fundamentals and to break it down to the most simple level, which inevitably will result in further developing your basketball IQ. Coaching is a passion of mine ever since my dad introduced me to basketball at an early age. I enjoy helping kids reach their potential by sharing all my knowledge of the game", Fuca said. The California kids may expect some international flavor in the future, as Fuca is playing the European game since graduating from college. Even though his first attempt did not produce the desired result, he kept believing: "It has been a rollercoaster, but it has definitely been worth the wait and hard work put in", he said. "After graduating in 2011, I was invited to a summer league in the Gran Canaria Islands. I didnt receive much interest from the camp, so I started my own training business. After not playing for a year, a lot of prayer and thought went into making a return."

From 2007 to 2011 Fuca attended NAIA Division 1 school Master's and became one of the premier point guards in the Golden State Athletic Conference, taking home All-GSAC team honors following his junior season. Thanks to the competitive nature of the conference, he was prepared to take the next step and wanted to follow in the footsteps of former Mustang players who pursued a professional career, such as Master's all-time scoring leader Mike Penberthy (191-G-74, college: Master's) who was part of the LA Lakers 2000-01 championship team and played for German powerhouse ALBA Berlin later in his career, or 2005 graduate Joe Deister (187-G-83, college: Master's) who spent three years with RSV Eintracht and was named the Eurobasket.com 1. Regionalliga North Player of the Year in 2007. "[The GSAC] is rated the number one NAIA league in the country", Fuca said. "There are numerous amounts of Division 1 transfers every year, making the conference competitive. From my team alone four guys have played professionally while other players in the league have been in Europe, Asia, or the NBA D League."

When Canadian Ryan Barbeau (178-G) left the Baskets Vilsbiburg in pre-season, Fuca was picked to do the playmaking and turned out to be the perfect fit for the Bavaria-based team. "Germany has been an awesome experience for me as this is my first season in Europe", he said. "The town of Vilsbiburg although small, has embraced me with kindness and showed great support for our basketball team. My teammates, coaches, and management have acted first class to me. Though it has taken me time to adjust from the California Sun to the German snow, its all a part of a new culture."
As far as the snow and the transition from North America to Germany was concerned, his teammate Justin Halleran (186-G-84) from Trepassey, Newfoundland and Labrador, provided some advice. Fuca and Halleran create the best backcourt squad in the 1. Regionalliga South-East, combining for 43.2 points per contest, with both players ranking amongst the most effective players of the league. "Justin has been a great teammate and leads by his work ethic. This is his third season in Vilsbiburg and he knows what it takes to win in this league", Fuca said.

Up next for the Baskets Vilsbiburg will be a road trip against second ranked team TSV OH Deisenhofen on February 17. In their previous game earlier this season Fuca poured in 23 points on 6-for-13 shooting to help power his team to a 96-90 victory.
