Edgar Melik-Stepanyan When Durwin Williams walked onto Glendale Community College as a freshman, he had the potential to become one of the best men's basketball players to come out of the school. He didn't have all the tools to excel on the court, but Williams wanted to get better, soaked up the lessons Vaquero Coach Brian Beauchemin taught and worked hard, as he earned his way into the starting lineup. Two years later, Williams left Glendale College as one of its top all-around players.

Erik Boal GLENDALE -- Glendale Community College men's basketball Coach Brian Beauchemin has noticed a few developing trends in the past few years when the Southern California Regional playoff bracket was announced. Number one, Beauchemin has realized that there are no easy first-round opponents, and number two, that the road to postseason glory usually goes through L.A. City College. Following Monday's announcement of this year's 32-team bracket, the trend will continue yet another year for the Vaqueros.

Erik Boal GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE -- Following his team's season-ending loss to L.A. City College in the Southern California regional quarterfinals last year, Glendale Community College men's basketball Coach Brian Beauchemin made his postgame comments short and to the point. "For us to get to this point the past three years, it's been great," Beauchemin said. "It's just unfortunate when you get there, you keep getting beat up." For GCC, which has advanced to the regional round of eight the past three seasons, it has been an impressive ride.

Hamlet Nalbandyan GLENDALE -- Glendale Community College men's basketball Coach Brian Beauchemin gets a big smile on his face whenever he watches Alhambra High play. For Beauchemin, who has been coaching at GCC for 21 years, he sees a little bit of himself in the the Moors' program. That's because Alhambra Coach Joe Petralia was under Beauchemin's tutelage as a GCC assistant for 13 years before taking the Alhambra job, and Petralia's assistants last year, Joe Khouzan and Vigen Jilizian, are former players of Beauchemin.

Erik Boal GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE -- With six minutes and 35 seconds left in the first half of its Southern California regional playoff opener, the Glendale Community College men's basketball team was left for dead. The Vaqueros trailed Chaffey College, 38-16, they were playing with no emotion and the GCC home crowd sat dead silent in anticipation of an early exit from the postseason. Although it still trailed by 17 points at halftime, Coach Brian Beauchemin's squad put together an almost improbable comeback in the second half to post a 97-89 victory Friday night.

Erik Boal One down and at least seven more to go. That's how Glendale Community College men's basketball Coach Brian Beauchemin assessed the remainder of his team's season following Saturday night's 72-62 Western State Conference Southern Division home victory against Citrus College. The Vaqueros entered the game against the No. 10-ranked team in the state -- according to the California Community College Men's Basketball Coaches Assn. -- with their postseason hopes on life supports after dropping three straight to open division play, but they were able to find a pulse and stay alive for at least another week.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — In his team’s opening act of the season, Glendale Community College Coach Brian Beauchemin saw plenty of things that must be improved. Defensive breakdowns, for one thing, are an area that needs to be shored up. That ultimately proved to be the bane for the Vaqueros, who yielded a buzzer-beating layup in an 82-80 home loss to Miramar College in a Vaquero Tip-Off Classic contest Friday afternoon. Steve Jones scored the winning basket, just releasing the ball before the game clock expired, to send Miramar College (1-0)

Let the possible lineup combinations begin to churn. With some key returners back in the fold and a group of freshman athletes eager to get a taste of the next level, Glendale Community College men's basketball Coach Brian Beauchemin said he's got options when devising a starting cast prepared to take the court. However, there's two mandates that have been given by Beauchemin to his players - they must excel in rebounding and play stingy defense. “Defense and rebounding are the two most important parts of the game and give us a very good chance to be successful,” Beauchemin said.
