Key Returnees
The senior class returns a strong group led by Jason Dickson, Robbie Rouse, Drew Kleinman and Jarod Hunter. The 2016-17 group will be without 6 players who graduated last Spring. “(They’ve) worked really hard this offseason to try and develop a new identity,” says Coach Scott. “We have some young guys who are trying to break into the varsity rotation.”

Outlook
Coach Josh Scott points out, “We’ll be relying on a good mixture of senior leadership along with young raw talent in hopes to make another strong run in the ITCL this year. Our goal as a group will be to get better every single day and work as hard as we can to compete every play for 32 minutes of basketball.”
